John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."


About The Company

     The Blind Man began as a one man operation. Stan Paterka was the sole installer, office manager, and any and everything else required to operate. Today, nearly 20 years later, with 10 installers and 6 office/warehouse personnel, The Blind Man has continued to grow annually since it's beginning in 2000. We have the privilege of providing installation services for over 35 businesses throughout south Texas. We credit our success 100% to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Who gave His life for us so that we might live.

About The Owner

     Stan Paterka started out in the retail end of the window coverings industry. After a couple of years in sales, he decided to give the production end a try and soon after, transitioned into installation services. After installing for The Drapery Handyman for a few years, God presented the opportunity for Stan to go into the installation business for himself. Thus began The Blind Man LLC. And now, with nearly 25 years of experience in all aspects of the industry, Stan has acquired an invaluable wealth of knowledge and insight to offer his partners. And even though he has been spotted in public wearing white dress shoes we are confident that he can still offer limited decorating tips for windows.

About The Family Man

     Stan has been married to his wife Kim for 23 years. They have been blessed with 9 children, 10 if you include Stan, as he likes to say. Homeschooling their children has presented a fantastic opportunity to have the whole family involved in the business. When the kids are not working on traditional school subjects, they are learning and applying clerical skills in the office and trade skills in the field. Outside of The Blind Man, Stan is involved with his family in Trail Life USA, American Heritage Girls, pro-life ministries, Bible study, and "hot date night" with Kim. Stan's goal in life is to reflect Jesus Christ and honor God in all aspects of life and ultimately, pass down this desire to his children so that they might have a greater impact in this world for good.
