Frequently Asked Questions

Why are solar screens installed on the outside of a window or door?

Roll-up solar screens are installed on the exterior of windows and doors because they are a great way to block the sun's heat and glare before it reaches your windows. Unlike interior window treatments that offer only shade and privacy, exterior solar screens also provide proactive defense against heat, reducing temperatures. This sun protection from specialty the fabric of roller shades helps reduce the load on your air conditioner and save energy costs.


Solar shades also provide a layer of insulation that slows heat transfer into or out of a room. These heat reduction properties make roller shades more effective at reducing heating and cooling costs than blinds, curtains, or drapes by themselves. Outdoor rollup shades, exterior-solar-shades, solar screen patio covers, and screen porch roll up shades are great ways to keep your home more pleasant during extreme temperatures.

Can you see through a roll-up solar shade?

Yes, solar shades use fabric that is see-through and only slightly reduces visibility. The visibility is dependent on the tightness of the fabric weave of the material used. A tighter fabric weave offers better protection from the sun and weather but limits visibility slightly more.


Solar screen fabric is made of either woven or knitted mesh. Woven mesh sun shade rolls of fabrics are made of tough fibers like plastic, vinyl, aluminum, and fiberglass. The color can come from the fabric weave itself (dyed weaves) or through infusing another material into the weave (dyed and laminated weaves).


The blackest shades come from vinyl or fiberglass, while more robust fabrics like woven polyethylene offer more transparency.


By applying coatings to the solar screen fabric before it's sewn into a shade roll, manufacturers can increase strength and durability without sacrificing visibility. Some of these coatings also cut down on glare, further increasing the amount of shade provided. These coatings and shading properties make solar shades for screened porch and roll up shades for patio spaces valuable additions to your home.
