Here’s a patio door under a patio not covered by a solar screen. We did not put a solar screen on this patio door because it is so deep within this patio.

Yes, for uniformity the homeowner could have put a solar screen on this patio door, but it also does not look bad without one. In a situation like this I am 50/50 with it.

Solar Screen for a front door
For any door, we can put one of our Austin solar screens on it. We do not recommend putting our solar screens on front doors, putting a solar screen on a front door doesn’t look all that great. A solar screen on the front door looks out of place.
If you have a front door that you would like to shade from the sun, one of our exterior patio roll shades may be the answer for you.

Here’s a front door storm door that we built a solar screen for. We made the solar screen to fit within the channeling of the storm door made to hold a full sized screen. Doors like this are made to hold a full sized screen. If a storm door is not made to hold a full sized screen like this, then we can not inset a solar screen into the door. But, we can screw one to the outside of the door. We can screw a solar screen to framing that goes around the glass.
Solar screen patio doors installed w/ no shade, w/ no patio coverings.
In my opinion, all back patio doors that do not have shade and are exposed to the sun need an Austin solar window screen.
I have heard from many customers over the years tell me they do not need a solar screen on the patio door because the door has interior blinds. The glass of the door may have blinds inset within the glass. While those blinds will give you shade for the inside of your home, they will not keep that glass from getting hot. Only a solar screen acting as a shading device installed outside of the door between the door and the sun will keep the glass from getting hot. Additionally, when you want to open those blinds you can if you have a solar screen out there shading the glass. Without the solar screen, you will want those blinds closed. And, the cost to cover the door is Trivial it doesn’t cost very much. I strongly recommend if you have a situation where you are solar screening the back of your home, and your back patio door is getting sun, to put a solar screen on it.
Patio doors that are not shaded by a patio covering that did not get a solar screen.
