Greg's History & Experience in Window Treatments

Greg was born in Bethesda, Maryland and grew up in Frederick. He graduated from Linganore High School and went straight into the home improvement business.

Later, he started his own painting company. Around this time, he tried hanging his first set of shutters and installing them himself–cutting and fitting them to his own windows. Friends noticed the clean outcome of his work and wanted the same professional looking window treatments for their homes. Eventually, he began offering shutters and installation to his painting customers as well–and that’s when it all started.

Get to Know Greg

Greg and his wife, Jennifer, have two grown boys who are both attending college. Their oldest studies film editing in Savannah, Georgia, while their youngest studies chemical engineering in Texas. They also love their dog, Mitchel, a CavaPoo.

Hobbies like offshore fishing and cruising on his Harley Davidson are some of Greg’s favorites. While spending time with family, though, he thoroughly enjoys attending local sporting events with them, and you can often find them cheering for the Washington Capitols.

What Greg Enjoys About the Northern Virginia/DC/Maryland Area

“The Maryland/D.C. area is the best place to live in my opinion! You get to enjoy the seasons and stay near the ocean, shores and Appalachian Trail. The geography has so much to offer. I enjoy the diversity in this area, I get to meet so many different people!”

Greg loves where he lives, and always does what he can to support his community. By staying involved, he has coached youth football teams and continues to sponsor various other events, he vows full commitment to his Maryland and Virginia friends and neighbors.

Greg's Business

With a family-owned business like this, you’re bound to get only the best and most comfortable customer service possible. Jennifer and Kelsey take care of the scheduling and estimates for the business, and their lead installer Ronnie Lennox, who’s been with Louver Shop for over 20 years, takes care of many of the installations; along with help from Chris Fairman, they make an unbeatable team.

Since Ronnie and Chris are trained to help customers from beginning to end, clients appreciate being able to work with the same person throughout the entire process. This level of dedication and extra touch of familiarity are what bring Louver Shop of Maryland and D.C. to the upper-echelon of the window-treatment industry.

Greg’s favorite product is Louver Shop’s shutters. They last forever, are a great investment on the home, provide great insulation and light control and match any style you can throw at it. His clients love the classic shutter look, but also appreciate Louver Shop’s roman shades. They also love the versatility that motorization offers to any window-treatment–escalating an already top of the line product to the very best possible.

Greg believes that you can’t go wrong with Louver Shop’s American-made products, either. With quality products and short shipping times, they stand behind their product whole-heartedly.

He works to get the customer exactly what they want, considering style, function and value. After listening to their needs, he steps in to use his 25 years of experience and expertise to help guide them to the best fit for their home. He loves the feeling of getting yet another satisfied customer. Hearing how much a client enjoys their new window-treatments never gets old.

“We are consistently recognized by Hunter Douglas as one of their premier dealerships and take great pride in customer service and maintaining our reputation as a premier window treatment provider.”

With a business driven by almost entirely referrals, it’s obvious that they’re doing something right!

Everyone we have worked with, from ordering, measuring and installation of our Louver shop window treatments has been honest, personable and clean and polite. We’ve run out of windows to put Louvers in! Great business!

We could not have had a better experience from start to finish. We chose the Louver Shop because we wanted to support a US manufacturer and did not want to deal with supply chain delays—our order was placed on 17 March and installed on 18 April. Ronnie Lennox and Chris Fairman were prompt for the initial appointment and so knowledgeable that we felt comfortable taking their recommendations. We are so glad we did, because the finished product is so clean and elegant and has completely changed the look of our family room. The installation required some skill because of a bow in frame of the large central window, but Ronnie skillfully trimmed the louver frame so that there was no resulting gap. We are so pleased we’ve ordered shutters for two more large windows. What is so great about the Louver Shop approach is that the same experienced team sees the project all the way through. We’re recommending Louver Shop to all our neighbors.

We used Louver Shop of Maryland to install plantation shutters for our downstairs windows back in 2018. We loved them so much that we returned to Louver Shop and had them do the rest of windows in the house. Ronnie and Chris were very professional and friendly, and we are very happy with the new shutters for the rest of the house. Additionally, Louver Shop has been very good with timely communication, and our shutters arrived ahead of schedule. Had we any windows left, we would use Louver Shop again!

Love our window coverings from the Louver Shop. From our initial visit with Ronnie to the installation, the entire process was smooth and enjoyable. He spent the time explaining all of our options and what would work best for our windows and doors, he even tried to convince us to go with cheaper options. They were even able to install 2 weeks ahead of schedule. On the day of installation, they were efficient and done in less than 2 hours installing. Would highly recommend Louver Shop and Ronnie to anyone!

Just had plantation shutters installed and they look amazing. Their prices were great. And Ronnie and Chris were very professional. They were punctual when they came and measured and again when they came to install the shutters. The shutters came in in 4 weeks which was very quick. I would definitely recommend this company.

We are extremely happy with our Louver Shop experience - from our initial consultation with Greg through the installation process with Ronnie and Chris. We secured a few bids and did an apples to apples comparison. Louver Shop was by far the best in terms of cost/price, as well as quality of materials. Our plantation shutters came in and were installed just a few weeks after we placed our order - the exact timing that was originally estimated. The installation team was prompt, efficient, and extremely kind and professional. I highly recommend this company!

Ronnie and Greg have now done two homes for us with plantation shutters and Hunter Douglas blinds, and we would recommend them to everyone with no hesitation. They always have your best interests in mind and offer great suggestions for problem windows.

We are immensely pleased with the installation of our interior shutters installed by Ronnie Lennox. They are good quality and simply beautiful in our home. The process from start (consultation with Greg) to finish (installation by Ronnie) went pretty smooth. Delivery was actually quicker than expected. We ordered the shutters a couple of days before Christmas and received a call about 3 weeks later that they were in and we could proceed with scheduling, which was also pretty quick. Ronnie and Greg were both very thorough in explaining the process. Ronnie showed up with his mask on and kept it on the entire time, which I fully appreciated his consideration and thoughtfulness during this COVID era. We received a few quotes from other companies who came out to our home, but our decision to go with the Louver Shop of Maryland did not disappoint.
