Film is an interior application and is not designed for your double pane windows. It is not nearly as effective as solar screens, and voids out all window warranties, as it is damaging to sealed thermal pane windows. Awnings are expensive and do not offer protection 100% of the time. Both of these alternatives offer no energy savings in the winter.
Solar screen will still allow full visibility; only you will be looking through a material so it is almost like looking through a regular screen, only a little darker.
Solar screens will still allow light to come in, so it will not completely darken the room. However, there are no current statistics available as each person’s
homes will be subject to different variables. Such as, the angle of the sun on said windows, the cloudiness of the day, and even the amount of trees in the yard. Customers’ opinions vary on this and the best idea is to have a Lone Star Solar Screens Representative hold a screen over your window and let you make your own decision.
Not in the daytime. Solar screens offer privacy in the daytime; however, at night if you have lights on, people will be able to see in.
There is no way for anyone to give you a specific accurate figure; there are too many variables involved. Therefore, we are not the kind of company who will make up a statistic. However, solar screens will dramatically reduce the cooling cost portion of your electric bill.
Lone Star Solar Screens™’ screens are warranted for as long as you live in your home. However, 20-30 years is a realistic life expectancy.
Yes, solar screens are incredibly pet resistant being PVC coated polyester. However, nothing is pet proof.
At Lone Star Solar Screens™ we have divided our employees and trained them for only specific aspects of the solar screen production to ensure our people will be the best in the business since that is all they will do, such as: frame cutters, regular screen rollers, screen door builders, specialty builders (arched windows), and grid-work builders. Our professional estimating and installation crews are all trained to the highest standards to ensure quality installations and are also trained to be the most knowledgeable sales/estimating solar screen force in the nation. All of this is done to ensure continued customer satisfaction.
Again, thank you for allowing us the privilege of sharing some information with you.
