About Steve Casper
I am a retired United States Federal Government Agent. Most of my time was spent working as a Forensic Scientist where attention to detail was of the utmost importance. I now conduct my window treatment installation business with the same high degree of professionalism and detail as I did my Federal employment.
For over 20 years I have been installing window treatments mostly for my wife’s business, Sylvie’s Custom Drapery and Blinds, and now for designers/manufacturers in the Northern Virginia area. I have worked with a vast array of custom drapery hung on a wide range of drapery hardware, to include 2 story installation projects. I have also hung numerous brands of blinds. I am currently installing for Budget Blinds of Arlington & Alexandria, as a contract installer, two days a week. This allows time in the week to also install for individual homeowners and Northern Virginia Designers.
In addition to drapery and blinds I am also installing Interior Plantation Shutters. I received factory training from Lafayette Interior Fashions for Shutter installation. I have also installed over 100 shutters for Budget Blinds in Arlington and Alexandria, Virginia.
I have a small yet comprehensive woodworking and metal working shop. I can and have manufactured wooden frames for complex, formal drapery applications. I can make cornice board frames and valence boards that require side pieces. I have also made simple brackets for difficult drapery applications where the available hardware would not fit the wall space at hand. I can also alter wooden brackets to fit the space requirements.
