Do Exterior Sunscreens Work?

Exterior SunscreensIf you’re thinking about having exterior sunscreens installed at your home, you may be wondering whether or not they work. And if that’s the case, then you clearly haven’t had the luxury of sitting in the protective shade of an exterior sunscreen on an oppressively sunny day. The short answer is yes, exterior sunscreens definitely work. They can make your porch, deck, patio, or other outdoor area much more comfortable by blocking hot sunlight, annoying glares, and even filtering out harmful ultraviolet rays. However, not all exterior sunscreens are created equal. To ensure that you’re investing in exterior sunscreens that will provide you with the protection you’re looking for and also enhance the appearance of your outdoor area, turn to the professionals at Advanced Blinds & Awnings.

We offer a wide selection of exterior sunscreens and retractable awnings from the most trusted manufacturers in the industry. Some of the most popular options we install for homeowners and business owners in the Inland Northwest, area include:

KE Durasol

Vertex Tension Screens are a stylish and sophisticated outdoor shade solution. These screens can be mounted either horizontally or vertically and feature motorized operation so you can easily get shade when you need it. They’re available in more than 30 colors and, like all KE Durasol products, these screens are custom made to suit your space, giving them a neat, streamlined appearance once installed.

The Space tensioned shade system is another exterior sunscreen from KE Durasol that is a favorite of homeowners. This outdoor shade system can easily be installed on pre-existing structures such as porches and you can integrate LED light strips into the shade for enhanced visual appeal.

If you’re mostly trying to block out sun from above, then a retractable shade awning may be more along the lines of what you’re looking for. We install a variety of KE Durasol retractable awnings, ranging from classic striped designs to sleek, modern options that retract fully into a cassette when not in use.

Corradi USA

Ahhh…Corradi….the Rolls Royce of outdoor living products. A subsidiary of Corradi in Italy, Corradi USA continues this renowned manufacturer’s long tradition of making custom-tailored fabric awnings and exterior sun screens. Their signature cassette screen system, the Summit, provides an assortment of enclosure options and is available with either motorized or manual operation. Choose from a variety of colors for the frames and screens and transform your backyard into a luxurious Mediterranean getaway.

The Harbor exterior sunscreen system is similar to the Summit but features larger, heavier screens that are ideal for extra-wide expanses or applications where thicker screens are needed to withstand heavy winds. This exterior sunscreen provides effective protection from the sun, wind, and even light precipitation, so you can enjoy your outdoor space, even when Mother Nature is acting up.

The Vista is Corradi USA’s premium exterior open roll system. When retracted, these sun screens coil neatly into an exposed fabric roll that can be mounted on your soffits or above your transom. With motorized operation, all it takes is the push of a button to get the protection you need from the hot midday sun or an afternoon rainstorm that’s rolling through.

Tuscon Sun Solutions

Retractable AwningThese Solution Screens are incredibly durable and feature tracks made of heavy-duty extruded aluminum, giving the screen enhanced rigidity when lowered. These solar screens are motorized for easy operation and are available in some of the widest sizes in the industry, so if you have a large expanse you’re looking to shade, this is a great option to consider.

Tuscon exterior sunscreens are also available with different screen options ranging from 5% to 45% openness so you can truly fine-tune the amount of heat, sunlight, and airflow that passes through your shading system. The Tuff Insect Screen offers great protection from gnats, mosquitoes, and other buzzing pests while the Natte 4505 blocks out 95% of heat and UV rays for maximum shade protection.
