Get to Know Buddy

What Buddy Enjoys About the Louver Shop Shutters of Charleston, Mount Pleasant & Summerville Area

Buddy and Sheila love the South Carolina lifestyle and people. In their leisure time, they take advantage of all that the area has to offer to include sporting events, taking in a show at the historic Charleston Dock Street Theater, or dinning out in the myriad of Charleston’s great restaurants. Somehow Buddy still finds time to volunteer at some of the local retirement homes playing his guitar for Alzheimer's patients.

Buddy's Business

Their approach to their business is a simple one. They listen to their customers’ wants and needs, then provide them with the best options that fit, be it shutters, blinds, shades, or something else.

Buddy and Sheila say some of the most popular products in South Carolina are window shutters, but shades are likely a close second. Additionally, customers really gravitate toward motorization and love all the conveniences that automation has to offer.

More About Buddy Cox

The duo also says that their commitment to customer satisfaction has benefited their business substantially, stating they regularly receive calls from construction companies and other home services asking them to do jobs that competitors simply won’t do.

Moreover, it’s their reputation that’s served them best.

“Our clients appreciate being serviced by folks that live here in Charleston, part of the community and yet backed by a lifetime warranty from a company that’s been around for over 50 years.”

Together, with their sons/installers (who regularly attend the Hunter Douglas Training and have extensive training and knowledge of motorized blinds and shades), they offer unparalleled service.

Buddy states his personal favorite window treatment product is The LouverWood because this window treatment holds up well and performs great in the humidity that’s so common to Charleston. Sheila likes the classic/hybrid because they have such a clean finish and are great for homes with thin windowsills, especially homes built in the 1950s and 1960s.

Buddy and Sheila recently installed custom shutters throughout my home, and it was a WONDERFUL experience. They were so gracious and patient and answered every question I asked. The gentlemen that came to do the install were so professional and polite and installed my shutters with precision. Everything was seamless, and the shutters are PERFECT. I am not easily pleased, and even I don't have one single complaint! The excellent service and the quality of the shutters are unmatched. I wouldn't ever go anywhere else.
