[#3462] This is a solar window screen installation that we did for a customer in Austin, Texas. We did the installation on Friday, April 5th, 2013. We installed a total of 22 solar screens using 2,130 inches. The color of solar screen fabric that we used was the chocolate, and we used the brown frame.
We upgraded six of these windows to the 90 percent solar screen fabric. Those six windows are on the back of the home (as shown below).
This customer had existing solar screens. They were older solar screens, and they wanted us to replace them with new solar screens, and in the process of doing so, they made sure they cleaned their windows, which is very important. So when we got over to the home, the old solar screens were sitting there waiting for us to haul off, and their windows were nice and clean. This customer used our recommended window cleaner, click here to learn more.
In this picture (below), you’ll see a small bathroom window. It’s very rare that we cannot put one screen over a window like this, but in this case, there is so much mortar and rock around the window that we had to split the screens up. We put a fixed screen on the right hand side of this window (screwed it on), and then a removable screen on the left hand side, the side that opened. For the removable screen, we spring loaded the screen to fit into the opening portion of the window just like the previous bug screen did.
