Exterior shading system

Exterior shading system

A window treatment system offers both economic and environmental benefits. While many claim that external shades are more efficient due to their ability to stop light and heat before it enters the home; you don’t have to use energy to remove heat that never enters the building. However, in many cases, external shades are inconvenient, ineffective, and just plain inappropriate.

External shades work best for skylights, sunrooms, greenhouses, and other locations that contain large areas with glass and windows. You can choose from exterior rollup screens, fixed panels, curving systems, or retractable awnings. The last option is also a popular choice for protecting decks, patios, or other outdoor living spaces. Retractable awnings not only shade the outdoor area they cover, they also cool the indoor room to which they are attached.

Internal shading systems come in a variety of designs and styles. They are available in folding shades – such as Roman shades, accordion-style pleated shades, and honeycomb shades – and rolling shades, which include solar shades, privacy shades, and blackout shades. Internal shades are available in a variety of fabrics and design choices, enabling you to match your shades to your style.

You can choose to completely block out 100% of all light with Light-Tight Shades, which seal the edges of the blinds to prevent light from seeping in. Block Out Shades do not have these side channels, but do offer darkening properties that can block up to 99% of natural light. For rooms that you would like darkened, but not necessarily completely light-free, you might consider room darkening shades. These shades substantially reduce natural light that enters a room.

Whether you choose an interior or exterior shade system, you will be happy with both the stylish look and modern functionality of your decision.

A comfortable environment when it comes to shading a home means keeping the sun’s heat from coming indoors during the summer months or keeping the warmth in during winter months but, also having a great view to peer out at when gazing out the window. How do you create this comfortable environment considering the seasons changing, the beauty of home décor, and the functionality of your shading system used for your home? Creating a comfortable environment for your home with proper shading isn’t as difficult as it seems.

Functionality and seasonal changes are very important matters to consider when it comes to comfort for shading your home. Being functional means that there are more things to consider in better shading your home and keeping things at a good comfortable level. Functionality and comfort may mean laying back or working less by using a remote control shading system or automated shades often found in roller shades systems, or motorized awnings for when you want to let the sun in for the colder seasons.

The beauty of our home décor plays an important part in making our homes a more comfortable environment in regards to shading our home. Being able to peer outside to see a friendly neighbor pass by, to see who is coming to visit, or to watch a squirrel play in a nearby tree can’t be done if your windows are completely covered up; all to keep the temperature right in your home. Roller shades are ideal for this. Roller shades aren’t bulky and are made with an assortment of fabrics to match your home’s décor. Roller shades come in a variety of materials which include solar control sunscreen, privacy/translucent, and room darkening blackout materials. These are great materials to beautify your home and to stay functional at the same time.
