We are an award-winning shade manufacturer

Insolroll Manufacturing facility

One of the reasons we understand window and patio shades so well is that we are also a major shade  manufacturer for other retailers throughout North America. Insolroll roller shades have become one of the top United States manufacturers of solar shades, decorative roller shades, and patio shades. When other companies have taken their fabrication to other countries such as Mexico or China, you can be confident that Insolroll products are made at our campus in Louisville, Colorado.

"This company is amazing. In just a few minutes the salesperson zeroed in on exactly what we needed and then we helped fill in details about color, functionality, design. They arrived when they said they would, had knowledgeable, clean and hard working installers. Given that we have a bunch of windows and many huge windows facing south and west we wanted solar shades to reduce glare and heat; these shades placed on electric motors (house current) and are controlled by a very good scheduling phone app...really convenient and we are super pleased. They even recommended building a false wall to hide the rolled solar shades, which is a great touch to keep great room & dining room minimal according to our design..."

"A close friend introduced me to Innovative Openings. In the very first visit, I had a wonderful and warm reception and long discussion with L. and P. about my needs and expectations. From that very positive first experience, my interactions with Innovative Openings never looked back! P., in particular, took very close interest in making sure that my ideas were incorporated and made special efforts to go the extra mile when there were some delays with the completion of my new home, etc. My interactions with everyone at IO -- about six of them at various stages -- was most positive. I would strongly recommend them to anyone in the market for window shades. You will be well cared for! Kudos!"

"From the wonderful ideas generated in initial conversations until the completion of the job in my home, everyone involved with Innovative Openings was helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. S. expanded on the ideas and came up with a cost effective solution for some shaped windows that have given me problems for a very long time. Thanks to the entire team for their part in providing and installing my window coverings!"
