17 solar window screens, 1,533 inches. Installation cost $997
It involved 17 solar window screens, 1,533 inches. The installation cost was $997. We installed the solar window screens on the left, front, and right side of this customer’s home.
You see there on the second floor over the front porch, there are two dormer windows, and then on the right‑hand side of the front there is an arched window that goes into the garage.
We often get asked by customers whether they should put solar screens on those kinds of windows because they feel that it’s not necessary. They don’t feel that it’s necessary to put a solar screen on the window for the garage and for the dormer windows.
I am not a fan of leaving any of your windows on the front of your home uncovered. Imagine what this picture here would have looked like if it had not had solar screens on all of these front windows.
Plus, the dormer windows that lead into the attic allow a lot of heat to get into the attic. They get sun. Therefore, that heat goes into the attic. You want to keep the attic as cool as you possibly can. This is one more way that you can achieve that, by shading the dormer windows, by keeping the sun from getting into the attic.
Ideally, you just want the front of your home to look clean and consistent like the
front of this home here does.
