Take Back Your Porch From the Sun with Exterior Solar Shades

The screens on your screened-in-porch may block the skeeters, but they don’t do much for the heat! Exterior solar shades block 65% of the heat and 100% of the glare making your porch a pleasant place to be even in the middle of summer!

The Only Thing That Should Be Sweating On Your Porch is a Glass of Sweet Tea

  • No more sweating, no more squinting – Solar shades block the heat and glare
  • Quick and easy to raise or lower – Enjoy protection from the sun with the push of a button.
  • Built for the outdoors – These screens are made to last, even when installed with exposure to the elements

Our In-Home Showroom Eliminates the Guesswork

Forget about taking dozens of fiddly measurements before heading out to a distant showroom. We come to you, take onsite measurements, and let you see exactly how each of our solar shades will look on your porch or patio. There’s no need to simply imagine how it’ll look when you can know instead!

42 Years Of Honing Our Craft

Sun Shades has been in business for more than 4 decades now, helping people take back their living spaces from the tyranny of the sun and really start enjoying their homes. Over the years we’ve mastered our craft and you can expect our in-house installers to demonstrate time-won expertise when they measure, fit, and install your roller shades.

Escape the Sun, Not Your Porch

During the summer months it’s all too common to not feel like you can really use your outdoor spaces until after the sun has set. Well, with solar shades your porch is a comfortable place to be any time of day. Solar shades block 65% of the heat and 100% of the glare, letting you reclaim your porch!

Our Showroom Comes To You

We understand it’s hard to visualize how something might look without seeing it at your house and so we bring our showroom to you! No need to imagine, you’ll be able to see for yourself!

Decades of Experience

We opened shop way back in 1980 and know a thing or two about solar shades. Our installers have 75 years of combined experience and are pros at fitting and installing exterior sun shades.

Enjoy The Outdoors, But Skip the Direct Sun

Porches are made for sitting outside, sipping a glass of something cold, enjoying the company of friends and family… but too often we find ourselves pushed indoors by the harsh sun. Solar shades let you take back your gathering spaces.

Convenience and Durability

We only use high quality Sunesta retractable screens, which provide seamless electric operation and stand up to the outdoors. Enjoy shade at the push of a button.

One Touch Operation Backed Up by a Great Warranty

When the sun is beating down on your patio the last thing you want to do is spend 5 minutes setting up a bunch of fiddly solar shades. Our Sunesta screens deploy with the push of a button on your wireless control – step on out and enjoy the shade. Sunesta products come with a lifetime warranty on the frame and up to 10 years on the fabric.
