The Gotcha Covered Experience: Harnessing the Texas Sun with Style & Ease


Gotcha Covered Metroplex’s design consultant and owner, Janice Smith, was contacted by, Carrie, who, because of her busy job schedule as a Safety Manager at Amazon, had been enduring “naked” windows for several months. Janice was able to work within Carrie’s schedule and met with Carrie at her Las Colinas condo early one morning. When Janice arrived, she experienced Carrie’s “naked” windows firsthand and proceeded to help Carrie find the perfect window treatments for her home.

Janice’s first step as she guided Carrie through the window treatment selection was to determine Carrie’s functionality needs. Carrie’s condo had many large windows, and after answering Janice’s questions about her design style, light control, and privacy needs, they both knew a solution to block the glaring Texas sun from enveloping her home was the top priority.

Janice showed Carrie the window treatments which would best control sun and glare, and Carrie decided on Graber Solar Shades (perfect for controlling light while maintaining the view of the outdoors) for her guest rooms, kitchen, master bedroom, and bath. For her tall kitchen windows, Carrie chose to motorize the solar shades to make the shades easier to a raise and lower.

Carrie was thrilled with her new window treatments and asked Janice to add decorative panels to her living room windows.

"Janice showed me many options, and although I struggled to make a decision, she was very patient, and I decided on the perfect window treatments for my condo. I loved working with Janice and plan to work with her on additional rooms in my home."

Janice’s expertise and knowledge gave her the ability to easily guide Carrie through the process and help her select the perfect window treatments to meet her needs, here style and her budget.
