Reduce your electric bills with my solar screens

My Solar Screens for Windows can SIGNIFICANTLY improve your air-conditioning efficiency by shading your home's windows from the heat of the sun.

By shading your home's windows with our solar window shade screens, the sun's rays are not able to penetrate your windows, therefore the heat generated by the direct rays of the sun will no longer impact the interior of your home.  Additionally, and very importantly, a solar screen will provide shade for the glass itself of your home's windows, therefore eliminating your windows from getting hot {touch your glass now to see how hot it is}.  By keeping the windows themselves from getting hot, the significant transferring of heat from hot (heated-up) windows into your home will be eliminated.  

Improve A/C effeciency

With solar window screens shading your home's windows, you will eliminate the hot harmful sun's direct rays from entering your home through your windows.  And you will shade your windows from the sun keeping the windows from getting hot and turning into a huge problematic source of heat. My Austin Solar Screens for Windows are the answer to reduce the temperature within your home and lessen the load on your air-conditioner.  My Shade Screens for Austin TX Windows will significantly reduce the amount of electricity used to run your air-conditioning unit.  Using solar screens to shade windows from the hot Austin Texas Sun is not only a must; it is imperative.

I custom hand-make my top-quality solar window shade screens using a long-lasting PVC coated exterior fabric woven of extremely strong and durable polyester yarns.  We only use the industry's best  (highest-end) most robust Made in USA solar sun screen material.  Read our Solar Screen Guarantee.  There is not a stronger or better solar shade control screen material available, The fabric is manufactured in the U.S. and is pet and hail resistant, it's very strong.  The Twitchell Textilene sun shade fabric I use was designed specifically for HOT climates like ours to last in the hot Texas sun, and it is as durable and long-lasting of an exterior solar shade screen fabric as they come.  Our 80% and 90% fabric was designed and manufactured to last.  When you build solar window screens, you should only build them to last, which is what we do.  The uniform weave design allows for 'EXCELLENT' visibility from the inside of your home outward while offering outstanding daytime privacy from the outside of your home inward.  In our opinion, there is not a better solar window screen material available.

Question : Is there a way to get a quick    BALLPARK COST   for the solar window screens?  Can I get a quick rough estimate for what my out of pocket installed total cost will be? 

& Answer :  Absolutely, I developed the following calculator that will give you an estimated installed cost based on today's quantity discounts and this month's coupon offers. The following calculator is based on an average-sized window of 35"w X 60"h.  Using the 80% shade fabric as a base and offering an upgrade option to the 90% fabric.  See here the difference between the 80% and 90% solar screen fabric.  If you do not want solar screens for all of your opening windows and you have deteriorated (old) bug screens within those windows that you want to be replaced, this calculator gives you the option for replacement insect Bug Screens as well.  Each window takes its own screen.  if you have a set of side by side windows, that's two windows.

Question : Do I need solar outdoor screens for all of my windows?  Can I get solar sun control screens for the sun stricken windows and regular insect bug screens for those that are not sun stricken. 

& Answer :  Yes, aesthetically you want the entire side of a home to look it's best, so you will want to use one kind of screen for the entire side.  Here's the section, solar screens on some windows not all, that has 50+ pictures showing homes with sides of the home with solar sun control screens on some, but not all of the windows.  These pictures are an ideal way to see for yourself what it looks like to have that unfinished look for a home.  For opening windows that are not sun stricken that you want new replacement bug screens for, not solar-sun-shade-screens, you can use my insect bug screens for windows

Question : Can I install the solar outdoor window screens on the inside of my windows?   

& Answer :  No, the solar cooler room screens are meant for the outside of the window to provide shade for the window and glass.  A solar sun shade screen will keep the glass from getting hot.  Thus keeping the heat from a hot heated up window from radiating into the home.  If you want something internally, you will need to look at interior blinds, draperies and shutter solutions. 

Question : What is your solar window sun screen guarantee?

I only believe in the best, the longest lasting, and the strongest (what we have for our own home), whereby we only custom hand assemble the highest-end solar sun window screens we can priced to you at inexpensive pricing personally installed with meticulous attention by myself Josh Hobbs.  Visit this section for my Austin Tx solar screens warranty.  Our exterior (Made in USA) 80% and 90% solar control screen fabric is hail and pet resistant, you can not tear it with your bare hands, it's that strong.  We assemble all but our small solar-cooler-rooms screens with 1" wide Heavy-Duty .024 Gauge Industrial Grade Aluminum Framing which is the strongest most heavy duty and durable solar-screen-windows framing available that will fit into the window tracks around Austin Texas.  The 1" framing was made specifically for heavy PVC coated exterior solar screen fabrics like ours.  We do not cut corners by trying to use small bug screen light weight framing to build our solar window screens out of.  We only use solar screen grade leaf springs on our screens, we do not use flimsy tension springs that were made for small bug screens (tension springs are commonly being misused all over the city).  For enhanced durability, we make miter cut corners and use aluminum metal corner inserts within our frames not plastic, and when needed for additional structural support we build our solar screens with center support bars.  All of our corners are mitered, we do not use the common industry methods of exposed plastic.  When flush clips are required to hold pop-in screens for tracks, I never use cheap low-quality plastic clips, I only use die-cast metal clips that are powder coated to match the color of the solar screen frame which ensures longevity from our brutal hot Austin Texas summers.  Note : Anything plastic exposed to the hot Texas sun will become brittle over time.  Simply put, from Josh Hobbs, you get the highest quality possible product with incomparable personal service at unbelievable LOW Austin TX Solar Screen Pricing !

Question : How does your solar sun outdoor screen pricing compare to others?   

& Answer :  I publish all of my pricing, so it is easy for someone else to beat it by a few percentage points or small dollars.  The difference will be trivial.  Installed solar screen pricing is so modestly priced as is, that even in certain situations where my pricing is more, it's so small and minimal that it's inconsequential.  What you are getting from Josh Hobbs is 17 years with well over 5,000 residential homes of experience.  And the industries best, most well made solar window shade screens.   I hear often from home-owners calling around on a $400 project to try to save $20, and that's just not what I am about.  You are guaranteed to get the best with Josh Hobbs, which is why I proudly say

"Why gamble with the rest, when you can be guaranteed the best with".
