Exterior window shades are the ideal product for reducing temperature within your home. The best ones to invest in are made with unique knitted all weather fabric because they block up to 90% of the sun’s UV rays yet still allow air to flow through. This breathable fabric not only significantly reduces temperatures behind the window shade, but still allows just the right amount of light transmission to ensure you can always see what’s happening outside.
You won’t have to compromise on appearance if you find the right ones. Some add a designer look to your windows, porch or patio and the price is very reasonable.
Some window shades are easily raised or lowered with a smooth action roller clutch mechanism designed to provide a smooth, even roll even when exposed to extreme weather conditions. Premier roller shades come with tie downs in the bottom rail so you can easily secure your blind especially during those windy days. Other designs roll up with a simple cord.
Most exterior shades are made to withstand harsh weather conditions and clean easily. I recommend them because they are a great investment and will add style and sun protection for your home.
