About Us

The free estimate you receive in your home business (or at contractor sites) is our best price always for quality blinds, shades or shutters! We don't play the game of offering a price match or a lower-than-your-lowest-bid number. Our prices are based on a low overhead, reasonable advertising and a desire to give you the best price for our products. We feel you should not have to pay for radio and TV advertising, balloons, free giveaways or other gimmicks.

We can beat the home improvement store's window covering prices, and Shades of the SouthWest owner, Jamie Malizia has been doing so in Albuquerque, Corrales, Placitas and Rio Rancho for more than 15 years. Our primary goals is always to ensure that you receive the best window treatments within your budget and that you are satisfied with our service. We treat all our customers the way we ourselves want to be treated.

Shades of the SouthWest has installed beautiful shades to cut the heat in our sunroom and still provide honeycomb insulation during the winter months. Jamie Malizia has an impeccable sense of design and color. The installation was efficient and timely. What a fantastic team! - Mary Rothman
