Do Solar Screens Really Work?

Solar screens are one of the most popular exterior home improvements for homeowners in Texas, and the rest of the country as well. The reason that solar screens are so popular as a home improvement is due to the fact that they offer so many great benefits for outdoor areas like patios or porches. But, as with any great product, many people are skeptical of the effectiveness of solar screens if they’ve never seen them in action themselves. In this post from the Texas Rolling Shutters & Screens blog, we’ll discuss if solar screens really work. 

Texas Rolling Shutters & Screens Really Block 95% Of Radiant Heat and UV Rays 

There’s no better way to cool down your outdoor area than a solar screen from Texas Rolling Shutters & Screens. As soon as our solar screens are deployed, the difference is clear. Our solar screens provide immediate heat reduction by blocking heat from the sun, and also improve the effectiveness of fans and outdoor evaporative coolers. This heat reduction turns your outdoor area into a place that’s cool and comfortable enough to spend meaningful time with friends and family. 


Another benefit of this heat reduction is that it reduces the heat that makes its way into your home as well. As radiant heat passes through glass windows and doors, it results in higher temperatures in the interior of your home. With our retractable solar screens, you can expect to enjoy a cooler home inside, as well as more pleasant outdoor areas as well. 

Our Solution Screens Allow You To Preserve Your Outdoor View & Increase Privacy 

Unlike other patio screens on the market, solution screens from Texas Rolling Shutters & Screens allow you to fully preserve, and in some cases, improve your view of your front or backyard. Thanks to the glare reduction provided by our solution screens, you can enjoy an unadulterated view of your favorite outdoor areas. And while our solution screens allow you to see out, they also increase your privacy and reduce the ability to see into your patio or porch. Enjoy the view that you love while increasing your privacy with solution screens from Texas Rolling Shutters & Screens. 

Reduce Presence Of Insects & Other Pests 

Thanks to the patented Tucson Adjustable Bottom Bar, you can reduce the presence of insects and other pests from making their way into your outdoor area. The patented adjustable feature is what is unique to the Tucson Adjustable Bottom Bar, and allows for closing patio slopes up to 2-1/2”. This is especially helpful if you find yourself frequently eating or preparing food in the area. With the Tucson Adjustable bottom bar, even the most clever varmint won’t be able to find their way into your patio or porch. Where other solar screens don’t work well with unlevel areas or patio slopes, the Tucson Adjustable Bottom bar creates a seal with the screen and the floor, no matter what angle your outdoor area is on. 

Additionally, if you spend time with your family cat or dog frequently in your outdoor area, you don’t have to worry about them taking off when you’re not looking. Our solar screens really expand the livable area of your home into your patio or porch, which is unlike any other exterior home improvement on the market.
