CONTRIBUTED CONTENT — Living in Southern Utah means enjoying an abundance of sunshine, but with those energizing rays comes the potential for sun damage. Jones Paint & Glass sells and installs various types of window coverings to help homeowners protect their investment while boosting energy efficiency.

Kim Maxwell, a window coverings and wallpaper sales expert with Jones Paint & Glass, said that c hoosing the right window coverings can make your home and life much more comfortable. Many parts of the home benefit from reduced sun exposure, including upholstery, furniture and wood flooring. It also means less work for the air conditioner during warmer months, which translates to lower energy bills.

Today’s homeowners are using technology to take total control with automated shades and shutters from Hunter-Douglas, Lafayette and Norman. Automated shades and shutters bring the convenience and efficiency of smart home technology to window coverings. Homeowners can raise or lower their shades without leaving the comfort of their couch, or even while away from home, through a smartphone app.

Smart shades and shutters can be set to open every morning with the rising sun or to allow warmth in on colder days. They can also be programmed to automatically close during periods of peak sunshine.

Additionally, automated window coverings allow for integration with existing smart home technology. Homeowners with an Amazon Echo, Google Home or similar device can use voice commands to change the brightness and mood of any room in seconds.

Jones Paint & Glass carries window coverings for every budget. Their showrooms provide customers with the opportunity to view and experience different styles, fabrics, manufacturers and all other options on multiple shades and shutters.

“There’s just a million different fabrics you can choose, and a ll the shades that we have in our showroom can be motorized,” Maxwell said. “That includes roller shades, honeycomb-type shades and banded shades.”

Window film is another option to help keep interiors looking and feeling fresh. Jones Paint & Glass offers various shades and colors of tint as well as clear window film. Combined with the insulated glass of the window, clear film serves as an effective barrier against UV rays. However, adding a bit of tint provides another level of privacy while reducing heat.

Jones Paint & Glass also installs custom solar screens. Mounted over the windows on the home’s exterior, they block as much heat and sunlight as film. While many homeowners prefer film because their views remain unobstructed, some customers opt for solar screens because they’re easy to remove when the weather cools down and more light and warmth are welcomed. Solar screens are mounted using quick fasteners and can be taken down in a matter of minutes for cleaning and storage in the garage until next summer.

Beyond window coverings, Jones Paint & Glass is committed to providing quality products at attainable prices while offering customers an unrivaled level of service and expertise. Their knowledgeable technicians will consult with homeowners on the type of window coverings that best fit their needs. Customers can request a free on-site estimate for their home through the company’s website.

Jones Paint & Glass offers a wide variety of home improvement products as well as commercial services and automotive glass repair. They’re the family-owned window, door, paint and glass store that Utahns have counted on for more than 80 years. The company operates seven locations across the state, including St. George and Cedar City, and employs over 200 industry experts.

Harold Jones founded the company in Provo in 1938 amid the economic turmoil of the Great Depression. His parents, believing in his vision, took out a $300 loan to help him get started and used their furniture as collateral. Despite minimal inventory and only himself as crew, his unwavering commitment to quality products and superior service soon had him competing with some of the largest providers in the area.

Decades later, Jones Paint & Glass has grown from a one-man show into a flourishing company serving residential and commercial customers across the Intermountain West. They continue to manufacture their signature line of vinyl windows in Utah. The business, now run by Jones’s grandson, upholds the core values on which it was founded.
