Solar screen will still allow full visibility; only you will be looking through a material so it is almost like looking through a regular screen, only a little darker.
Solar screens will still allow light to come in, so it will not completely darken the room. However, there are no current statistics available as each person’s home will be subject to several different variables such as: the angle of the sun on your windows, orientation of the house, interior design, and the number of trees in the yard. Eash customer has a different opinion on the matter, so the best idea is to have a us hold various screens over your windows while you determine the best choice for your personal preference.
Not in the daytime. Solar screens offer privacy in the daytime; however, at night if you have lights on, people will be able to see in.
Eash person’s house and comfort level is different so we cannot quote any figures; there are simply too many variables. However, solar screens can significantly reduce the cost of cooling and thus help lower your utility bill. Your local utility company says sunscreens can reduce cooling cost by 25%.
No. Companies use different materials and building methods, and there are many ‘amateurs’ in the business. You always want to make sure they are licensed and don’t forget to checkout their reviews.
Film is an interior application and is not designed for double pane windows. It is not nearly as effective as solar screens, and voids out all window warranties, it damages the sealed thermal pane windows. Awnings are expensive and do not offer protection 100% of the time. Neither of these alternatives will result in energy savings in the winter.

If you want more light, better airflow and visibility, you should go with 80 percent. If you want more glare reduction and energy efficiency you should probably go with the 90 percent. It is also possible to put 90 percent screening on the more exposed areas and 80 percent on areas with less sun exposure (i.e. north side). Aesthetically, it will not look any different on the exterior.
The darker colors are more efficient and also have the best view. However, we offer 7 different colors and you should pick the color you will be most happy with. Just remember: the darker the color, the better the view.
For maximum energy efficiency solar screens should protect all windows and doors. However, you may order sunscreens only for those windows you may want to cover, such as the east and west windows, and southern exposure of your house.
We guarantee installation will be completed within 2 weeks of ordering.
