Solar Screens Austin Tx Install

This is an Austin installation of solar mesh window screens. These exterior screens are Phifer’s Suntex 80% and a 90% solar mesh (darker at top, lighter at bottom) in brown. The homeowner selected this type of window screen because (as you can see in the image below) some windows of his home experience full sun despite the shade tree in his yard.

Suntex Solar screens on Austin Home

With Austin’s amount of sunlight these types of solar screens make sense for homeowners wishing to save on their summertime air conditioning bill.  The solar mesh exterior screens come in type 70%, type 80%, and type 90% allowing people to choose the amount of shading they desire. These screens also come in many different colors, this homeowner has brown. We talk more about window screen types and the  colors plus the technology behind the solar mesh products  available, here:


Solar mesh  properties

This type of window screen cuts down on the amount of solar energy that is allowed into the home. Window screens like these 80% solar mesh and 90% screens seen in this installation also add privacy and security. Without a privacy screen, people driving by catch glimpses of your living room, your valuables, and your family inside your home. In this particular Austin home the homeowner kept the blinds closed nearly all of the time.

Solar Screening Protects & Provides View

Solar  screens add privacy and security to your home plus preserve your view.  When using this mesh for your window screens you are still protected from insects and can open your windows to enjoy the breeze.

Many people add blinds or curtains to block the public’s view of the interior of their home, however this has the double effect of preventing them from seeing out. How can you enjoy your view with your blinds closed?

Shading with exterior solar mesh for window screens

Solar Screens Open Your Home

Enjoy your roses

Solar screens you can open your home and bring the outside in while preserving daytime privacy.

The time and money spent landscaping the front yard can be enjoyed from within.

We invest quite a bit in our landscaping yet the only time we see it is when we are outside.

Those halcyon days when people sat on their porches in the evening greeting the neighbors as they walked the dog aren’t the norm any longer.

Often when driving through the neighborhood there isn’t  a single person outside, and blinds and curtains once installed often stay closed denying us our warm Austin sunshine and keeping our homes dim and dark albeit cooler as well.

BEFORE the solar window screens were installed blinds were kept closed

Closed Blinds and Curtains Close Off View

Closed blinds and curtains may preserve our privacy yet they  keep us from enjoying our own yards and view, close the house making it feel smaller, dim and dark.  Solar  screens allow you to open up your home and let the outside in.

Plant roses in front of your windows, open your blinds, enjoy the sunshine with solar window screens.

Austin Solar Screen Example

The recent Austin window screen project pictured on this page illustrates how solar screens add a level of safety and security to your home by screening your interior from public eye, yet allow the homeowner to open her blinds, and enjoy her beautiful front yard and view.

Details: This Austin area home is done in Suntex Brown. The circle window is a 90% solar window screen and the large square windows were 80% solar window screens also in Suntex Brown. The arches above them are 90% solar window screens to prevent the glare from the afternoon sun from penetrating.

In the before picture of this solar window screen project in Austin, note how the blinds were closed before the solar window screen installation as we approach the house, preserving homeowner privacy yet preventing any view. Now the home owner has a front yard view, can open her blinds without losing privacy and let the sunshine in without glare.

In the last image of our solar window screen install (below and to the right) is an example of the  custom window screen crafted for the round window that allows in the amount of light wanted, without the glare.

Control Solar Heat and Glare

The lighter the solar fabric the more visible light will be let into your home. The darker the solar fabric the more solar energy will be absorbed and the easier it is to see out of.
