If you ask Josh about his favorite window treatment, he will certainly tell you about automated shades, as they are extremely convenient and easy to use.

    Senior Installer

    Ben is our awesome Senior Installer, and we're so grateful to have had him on our team since October 2020!

He was born in neighboring Alpharetta and moved to Lawrenceville, and now lives in the same neighborhood as our showroom!

Most importantly, Ben makes sure that every customer LOVES their new window treatments! When asked about his favorite part of working with Budget Blinds, Ben told us that he loves getting the opportunity to be invited into a client's home and building an ongoing relationship with the family.
