Exterior shades keep your home cool from the outside, offering protection against harsh UV rays while also dressing up your favorite outdoor spaces. Also known as patio shades, Exterior Shades are also perfect for providing shade for porches, sunrooms, and decks. They come in fully custom sizes to match your outdoor setting. Choose from a wide range of fabric weaves that block light and offer greater privacy, or open weaves that allow for more natural light.
Exterior shades are designed to keep things cool and reduce your home’s solar heat gain, resulting in lower electricity bills. Enjoy the outdoors, even in the hottest months of the year. Exterior shades lower temperatures and make porches, patios, and decks into livable spaces.
Protect your furniture from potential UV damage by stopping light before it gets to the window. This allows you to stop heat and light without having to cover your windows or decorative molding from the inside. Need to get rid of pesky glares from reflective surfaces? Exterior shades are excellent at keeping the sun out of your eyes in addition to keeping out the heat. Even though Exterior Shades protect your home from heat and unwanted light, they don’t do it at the expense of your favorite daytime view. You’ll still be able to see clearly from your window.
