I needed a shade for a west window and wanted to completely block out the afternoon sun. Not knowing anything about solar shades, I ordered a 1% and was surprised that, while it blocks a good deal of sun, it does not block out as much as I thought it would.
However, the installation was easy and the shade is handsome, so overall I am satisfied.
Used these on our front proch to replace verticle blinds- they look much better and also keep the porch coolef
We have purchased several of these shades are very happy with their effectiveness to keep the sunlight minimal and look/colors. One thing is when ordering you are encouraged to add more to your measurements than needed but don't add the full amount told
because they will be too big. I would suggest only adding 1/8" to the width and 1/2" to length. But the shades themselves are great!
The color we picked matched our walls, can hardly see the blinds when pulled down because of the color
These solar shades look great. We did make an adjustment so that they essentially disappear when open instead of hanging down 5 inches as we did not want our view obstructed when not in use. customer service was excellent in sharing a video on how to do
this. When in use, the 1% leaves little to be seen of our view but they serve their purpose in keeping out the glare of the western facing sun.
