What You Need to Know About Solar Shades

Having a home in the Sunshine State allows you to enjoy breathtaking views of your outdoors while basking under the sun. Nonetheless, there are times when the sun comes on too strong in Florida. As much as you might want to enjoy the scenery, your standard window treatments may completely block your view.

ArmorGuard Exteriors™ gives you the opportunity to enjoy the best of both worlds. Our exterior solar shades allow you to take advantage of the view outside while protecting you from the harmful UV rays of the sun.

Various factors can affect the efficacy of your sunscreens. That’s why our expert installers discuss the things you need to know about them.

Openness Factor

This number pertains to the tightness of the weave of your solar screens. The higher the number, the more light and heat comes inside your house. It also provides a more visible outside view. We offer 10-Percent Openness Solar Screen, which offers 90% UV protection. This provides maximum natural light entry and comes with a 5-year warranty.

We also have 5-Percent Openness Solar Screen, which offers 95% sunlight blockage with an appreciable light entry and outside view. Our 1-Percent Openness Acrylic Fabric provides maximum light and heat control and comes with a 10-year warranty.

Fabric Color

Our retractable screens come in various fabric colors and patterns. These allow design flexibility and provide an instant boost to your house’s aesthetic appeal. We have an array of light fabrics, which offer great benefits to your home as they can reflect heat better. This reduces your cooling energy costs.

Dark fabrics, on the other hand, can also make a great choice since they absorb more light. This means better glare control for your home. This means increased visual comfort while you watch your favorite shows even under the strongest sun. They can also provide better privacy for you and your family.

Choosing the Right One for Your Home

Solar screens are versatile, practical, and energy-efficient alternatives to your usual window coverings. They help repel solar heat and reflect the harsh glare of the sun, while increasing your home’s curb appeal. They also prevent the premature deterioration of your furniture and house paint.

Our exterior solar shades options allow you to control the flow of heat and light into your home with just a push of a button. Whether you prefer retractable awnings or screens for your solar shades, we can assist you. Call us at (904) 559-3230. You may also complete our contact form for a FREE estimate.
