What Our Clients are Saying

Dear Chris & Jill,
I absolutely love the solar shades, cannot believe the difference in the temperature inside. At first I was skeptical of the glare they would cut down but WOW it sure does the trick. Thank you!”

“Chris and Jill go all out to have their installations perfect. 
They installed motorized external sun shades on our home and they make a world of difference. They are good communicators and are ever responsive.”

Michael Newhouse

“We have a three story home 
and the windows are 3 feet high and 6 feet wide on the west side of the house and we were dying of heat buildup in the living room. Chris came over and looked at the situation and recommended a solution. We ordered and the product was in place just as Chris had told us that it would be done. It solved our problem and enhanced the homes livablity. We are happy campers because of Long Valley Solar Shades and the promptness and reliability of Chris and Jill Yensen. Thank you for the service.”

Thanks for making our holidays as merry as they can be! We appreciate your quick response to our initial inquiry, personal service, frequent updates, quality product selection, fast delivery and careful installation – and all this you made happen just in time for Christmas. Thank you! It makes us feel good, too, to support a local business – and you made that easy by offering competitive prices with the added assurances of local customer service.

Happy Holidays, Jill and Chris! We look forward to getting a few more shades from you in 2010.”

Farm to Market Road, McCall

We purchased Solar Shades from Long Valley Solar Shades a year ago and we could not be happier. The mechanism for raising and lowering the shades is simple, strong and effective. The shade material works dramatically well. The measuring and installation was professional. The price was competitive. The service was attentive. It just doesn’t get any better than this!”

Stu Young

The heat from our west-facing cathedral windows was almost intolerable during the summer. The installation of solar shades has not only kept our view of the lake intact, but also decreased the temperature in our home by 15 degrees or more. Chris and Jill are wonderful to work with – efficient, helpful and customer-oriented. Chris researched manufacturers to find the perfect product at an affordable price for our home. Thanks again.”

Howie and Sharon Wynn

Jill & Chris: Thanks for your expertise in recommending and providing solar shades for our cabin. The setting sun was just blazing in our cabin and right on the dinner table making it impossible to have our dinner there. The shades we purchased from you fit our odd shaped window perfectly and now we can enjoy dinner at the table!”

Dian & Bob Williams

We are very satisfied with the service and products that Jill and Chris provided when we needed sun/glare protection for our east-facing cabin windows. By using remote control shades, we were able to avoid electrical work in the walls. Chris did a great job at installation in the living room second-story windows. The shades have functioned well for more than a year now and the design choices that Jill guided us through fit our decor perfectly. Chris did not hesitate to travel out to the ‘wilds’ of Secesh Meadows!”

Secesh, McCall

We love solar shades, they block out the heat of the sun but still allow us to enjoy our view, and they look great too. Chris and Jill were both very helpful and very patient while we tried to make up our minds on colors and style. Chris did a great job with installation and always showed up on time! We would, and have, recommended Long Valley Solar Shades to anyone looking for window coverings.”

Sam and Chris Hescock

In the 14 month process of building our house, one of our smoothest experiences was with Chris & Jill Yensen of Long Valley Solar Shades. They were upfront about varying costs, quality, and timelines. The product they delivered was exactly what they promised, the installation was quick and clean, and the shades are very durable. I wish every vendor and subcontractor had been so reliable.”

Renee Silvus

I had Solar Shades installed in my new home in Lake Fork , Idaho in 2007. This year I had the upstairs windows completed with the solar shades; it made a noticeable improvement in the afternoon temperature during the summer months.
Jill & Chris Yensen were a delight to work with – very professional and knowledgeable. The selection of materials and window treatments are extensive and well displayed. I appreciated the friendly service and prompt installation.
I would definitely recommend their service to anyone looking for window treatments.”

Rosalie Chase
We have been very impressed with Chris and Jill at Long Valley Solar Shades. Chris came to our home to walk us through all of our options and found us a shade that works perfect at our location. He has also followed up on his product, coming to our home to make sure the shades were working as intended. We strongly recommend Long Valley Solar Shades and Chris for your window covering needs.”

Spring Mountain Ranch, McCall

Each time I have purchased products from Long Valley Solar Shades I have been impressed with their friendly, quality service. I see no reason for consumers to leave Valley County in hopes of finding a better priced product or a more professional organization.”

Kathy & Steve Muench

In looking for window treatments for our ‘back-country’ cabin we recently built, we went into Long Valley Solar Shades to see what they had to offer. We knew what look we wanted to achieve, but didn’t know what product would get us there. After visiting with Chris and Jill, it was clear that they not only believed in their product, but also they wanted the best match for their customers. When the blinds arrived, we were pushing the envelope on getting into the back country to get the blinds installed before we were snowed out for the winter. Chris came out on a Saturday and installed the blinds and they were the perfect match for the cabin. A few days later, our contractor went up there and said when he walked in and saw the blinds in place, it brought the whole house together and was perfect. We could not be happier with Chris and Jill’s performance throughout the whole process, from the wide selection of blinds to the installation and cleanup.”
