    Gressa Schroeder

    Owner & Design Consultant

    Hello, I’m Gressa Schroeder, Owner of Gotcha Covered in the East Metro area of Minnesota. Creative design has always been at the heart of my work. I started my window treatment business after fifteen successful years working as a graphic designer. When it was time to make a change, I chose to continue my career as a creative professional with Gotcha Covered because it allows me to work directly with clients for whom I know will appreciate the high quality of products I offer, enhanced by my seasoned design background. My style is to listen to your needs first, then provide product selections that are perfectly tailored for you and your space. I’m a business owner who loves to combine personalized service with custom work that enhances your home.

    Susanna’s ability to listen and relate to each individual is a quality that allows her to work with any homeowner to provide a customized solution for window treatments that is a perfect fit each and every time.

In his 35+ years of experience, there is truly very little that Louie has not installed! From traditional draperies, to everyday blinds and shades, and even the more complex motorized solutions from our top vendors, Louie has installed it all.
