This is a chocolate solar screen Buda TX installation that we did in June of 2018. For this buda solar window screen installation, we installed the solar window screens on the back windows. And some on the right side of this buda Texas home. The homeowner chose the 90% solar screen fabric for all of their windows.
As this picture shows, the homeowner did not choose to put a solar screen on the patio door. Choosing to put a solar screen on the back patio door would have served this homeowner better in my opinion.
Using turn clips to hold the solar screens against the windows.
This Buda solar screen installation consisted of us using metal turn clips. Windows of this type (champion) were not made to hold full-size solar screens in place. Meaning there was not a track at the top and bottom of the screen to hold a full-size screen. Because of this, we used our turn Clips to hold the screens up against the windows.
This is the west-facing side of the home. Being the west-facing side, the homeowner correctly chose to use our 90% solar screen fabric. The 90% fabric is what we recommend for the sides of the house that get 4 hours of Sun. We recommend the 80% fabric for all other sides.
The chocolate brown color ties in well with the off-white painted exterior. But also ties in with the brownish roof. But more so with the not shown brownish tinted bricks.
For the white window frames, we stuck with a white for the solar screen framing. We could have used the brown solar screen framing. And we could have used the tan solar screen framing. Sticking with the white for the solar screen framing was the best choice. Reason being, it doesn’t introduce another color. It simply matches the white window frame and doesn’t add an additional color. This makes for a cleaner transition. A cleaner look.
