Exterior Roller Shades

Roller shades are simple but convenient window treatments versatile enough not just inside your home, but outside it, too. Exterior roller shades have the same easy function as indoor roller shades – however, they are constructed to cover windows from the outside and seal decks, porches, and other outdoor spaces from issues like insects and the sun’s harmful UV rays. Because of this, outdoor roller shades have a few special benefits that result from being engineered specifically for their use outside.

Benefits of Exterior Roller Shades

Superior Insulation

Outdoor shades are the best way to reduce your home’s heat gain. While indoor roller shades insulate your rooms by providing a layer between your windows and the rest of your room, outdoor roller shades stop and deflect sunlight before it ever reaches your window glass to warm up your interiors. This superior insulation regulates your home’s temperature without the use of your air conditioning and heating appliances, allowing you to save both energy and money. Adding a layer between your outdoors and indoors also helps to deaden noise for more peaceful, quieter spaces.

    UV Protection

    Avoid UV damage by preventing it in the first place. Sunshades protect your furniture, rugs, and artwork from fading. The openness of your solar screens – the density of its fabric weave – determines your shades’ viewability and light blockage ability. A low openness factor offers the best UV protection, while a higher openness factor offers better visibility of your outdoors. A range of fabrics are available from our shade manufacturers to best protect your décor without preventing your view.

    Make your outdoors your own. Exterior roller shades offer homeowners the opportunity to entertain guests and enjoy their outdoors without the problems of weather, bugs, and sun glare. Patio blinds and shades keep out the elements and stop sunlight from interrupting evening dinners. Bug screens also allow for fresh air to enter your space without letting in unwanted visitors. Exterior roller shades ultimately provide your home with exceptional light control and privacy for benefits that extend from the outside, in. Most importantly, homeowners have the ability to customize their outdoor shades to meet their needs without compromising on their connection to the outdoors.


    Screened in porches and patios can add to your home’s value. Quality screens therefore could be crucial to interesting prospective home buyers should you decide to sell your home.
