From Inspiration to Creation:
The Sanford Verticals Story

Established in 1987, Sanford Verticals is a family-owned and operated Orlando window treatment company that has been providing top-notch service to customers for over 3 decades.

This post was updated on April 9th, 2024


Our founder, David Summers, has always had a passion for working with people and serving his community. With the help of a kind stranger who offered him startup funds, David opened the doors to Sanford Verticals in June 1987. To this day, customers still remember David for his friendly, approachable nature and his dedication to providing excellent service. Feel free to navigate our service area map in Central Florida, including Seminole County, Osceola County, Brevard County, Volusia County, Lake County, Orange County, and a few more.

A Legacy Built on Family, Quality, and Window Treatments

In early 2018, David's youngest son, Andrew, decided to bring the family business into the 21st century by introducing new technology and marketing strategies. Andrew's experience as an Operations Manager for a national window covering company and his passion for the industry has helped Sanford Verticals to grow and diversify their services. Andrew and Jim Micheli, who joined the company as a managing member in 2018, both share a passion for the window covering industry and a strong work ethic.
