Installing solar screens on some windows, but not all. How will doing this look? Can I shade just some windows and not others?

What does it look like to leave windows uncovered for the front of the home?

Here’s a home we did this year (2020) in Pflugerville. The homeowners did not want to cover the two 1/2 circles or the transom around the front door. But they did have us cover the 1/2 circle over the front door. To each is own, but I would have for sure covered all of these windows if this was my home.

This homeowner did however cover all the windows here in the back of their home with the solar window screens. They did not leave any of these windows unshaded.

See how the front window’s glass around the front door pop? How they jump out at you since they are not covered? You see that shiny glass. This home in my opinion could have looked considerably better. Better if the windows around the front door were covered with the solar window screens.

Do you cover front windows if you have stained glass within them?

In rare cases you have people with stained decorative glass above and around their front doors. Covering that becomes a judgement call. How do you want the front of your home to look. On one hand I can appreciate why this homeowner did not want their stained glass covered, but on the other hand the job just does not look complete to me. With that said, I can 100% appreciate why this homeowner did not shade these windows.

How about a front small window? If I have a very small front window over the front door, can I leave that uncovered?

Even tough it is a small window and you think it won’t be that noticeable, trust me it is. I do not like leaving windows above the front door uncovered because to me it is one of the first things you see when you pull up to the home. It looks almost like you are corner cutting.

The following Kyle TX homeowner did not want to put the sun screens on the top small (3) 24×24 windows or over the front door. I convinced her to at least do the the (3) 24x24s but she did not go with the one over the front door. She covered every other window on the house, to include the back door, but did not put one over the front door.
