Solar Screens

Outdoor shading made easy

There's no denying the damage the sun can do to your skin. But ultraviolet rays can also wreak havoc on the interior of your home when they penetrate your windows. A quick, cost-effective solution to prevent sun damage in your home is to install solar screens on the windows. Solar screens provide plenty of benefits to homeowners.

Indoor UV Protection

Indoor window treatments are not as effective at protecting your valuable curtains, walls, furnishings and paintings from the fading, discoloration and other damage ultraviolet rays can cause. Solar screens shade your windows and deflect up to 90 percent of the sun's rays before they have the opportunity to enter your home. This helps keep your home cooler in the summer, reduce energy waste and slash your utility bill. These shades also reduce the glare on your windows and television screens.

Added Beauty

Although the use of tint on home windows is not as common as it once was, there are still homeowners who continue to use this method to block out the sun. However, window tint can peel, bubble and make your home look ghastly, and once you cover your windows with tint, you can kiss your warranty goodbye – most window manufacturers void their warranties once window tint is installed. Solar screens, on the other hand, are a much better option because they enhance the beauty of your home, and are easy to remove when it's time to clean your windows.

Daytime Privacy

Homeowners who use solar shading can open their drapes and blinds and still maintain their privacy. Solar shades look dark from the outside, but they provide excellent visibility from the inside. Onlookers will only see the beauty of the solar screens, not what's inside your home. While solar shades provide you with protection and privacy, the screens still allow plenty of light to pass through.

Patio and Deck Protection

Solar shading isn't just for the windows on your home. Rollup solar screens can be used as patio covers, or to provide protection for gazebos, and they can be easily put away when not in use.

Solar shades are perfect for people looking for no-nonsense ways to protect the interior of their homes from sun damage without sacrificing aesthetic appeal or privacy.
