Using our black solar window screen fabric, we built seven solar window screens for this homeowner. And two outdoor patio shades. The two outdoor patio Shades we made out of the same 90% solar window screen fabric that we used to build the solar window screens out of.
Georgetown solar screen installation, total cost $1191.
The sales tax total installed cost for this project was $1,191.
That included seven 90% solar screens and two 90% outdoor roller shades.
Installing solar screens on vinyl windows.
These solar screens are directly screwed to the vinyl window framing. All vinyl window solar screen installations involve a direct screw installation method. Meaning the solar window screens are direct screwed to the vinyl window framing using small minimally-invasive 3/4 inch long screws.
We know the anatomy of these windows very well. We know where the glass ends so that we never ever get into the glass or even get close to the glass. No vinyl window framing is sealed against / with the glass, therefore water will always get in between the vinyl Framing and the glass. Because of this the window allows for water to seep out to / through the bottom of the framing.
I say this with reservation, I say it intently, because people will ask about water getting into their windows. If people understood discectomy of a vinyl window they would understand that water comes in from where the glass is attached to the vinyl. And all vinyl windows are designed to drain at the bottom. Our screw holes will have a screw in them, therefore no water will get in through that screw hole at all. As the screw hole will be sealed with a screw. Even if it was not sealed with a screw, very little if any water would ever get into the hole, as it is on a vertical surface.
I say all this because this is a question that often comes up.
Shading the patio with outdoor roller shades.
To match the solar window screens we made these outdoor roller shades out of the same 90% solar screen fabric that we used to make our solar window screens out of.
Our outdoor roller shades do not go all the way to the ground.
When you install an outdoor patio shade like this it does not need to go to the ground, as it does not need to shade your feet.
Our outdoor roller shades drop to 82 in. We can make some of them down to 99 in. We can drop down to 99 in if we use our chocolate brown 90% solar screen fabric. But when making outdoor sun shades for the patio with this 90% black fabric the maximum height is 82 in.
It’s not an issue, and shouldn’t be an issue. You do not need the outdoor roller shade to go any farther down then 82 in.
Looking out our outdoor patio shades.
It is quite stunning how well you can see through our 90% solar screen fabric. This is an outdoor roller shade that we made using the 90% solar screen fabric.
Look at how well you can see through this fabric.
For the following outdoor roller shades we put the clutch on the right side of the shade. The clutch is what is used to roll the shade up and down with. It is that clutch that has a stainless steel chain that loops around it. And by using that stainless steel chain you roll the shade up and down.
