Tenants LOVE my Solar Screens!

My Solar Screens for Windows will create UNIFORMITY and will HIDE the tenant's interior belongings. 

My solar screens for apartments will make your tenants happy.  The solar screens shade the windows to significantly help keep the units MUCH cooler, thus relieve some stress on the A/C units.  Tenants love the privacy aspect.  They love that during the day other tenants can not easily see into their units when their blinds are open.  Tenants love the shading factor, which keeps their unit cooler.  Property managers love the solar screens because they just look so good.  The solar screens create a uniform look, they take away the site of bent blinds, stickers on the glass and all of those unsightly tenant belongings.  When the apartment property sales team shows the property it looks its best with all the windows covered.  The solar screens will unquestionably tie the property together with a clean, fresh and uniform look.

PRICING

Simply give me a call and I'll put your Multi-family property on one of my routes

to swing by to measure and count the windows.

Once I have measured I'll then email you over a cost.  If the apartment complex is in Austin TX, I'll see if it qualifies for a multi-family Austin Energy Rebate, and if so, that estimated rebate amount will be reflected within the pricing I send over.   I by default will provide you 80% and 90% sun shade (density) fabric options.  This way, you can see the cost difference between the two fabrics.  The 90% sun control fabric gives you considerably better concealment coverage than the 80% solar shade fabric, but it comes at a slightly higher cost.  See the two fabrics compared here showing some 80% solar window screen apartment installation examples and some 90% solar window screen apartment installation examples

 

Also on the estimate, I will break down the frame cost options, to use the 3/4" flimsier framing like everyone else does, or use the heavy-duty 1" framed solar screen frame.  You'll see all that as pricing options on the estimate to see the cost differences.  If you want the swing doors for apartments and sliding doors priced out as well, I can show that as pricing options as well.  I can also really dress the solar screens up by using grid patterns on them.  This adds about a 30% increase in cost, but I can show that as a pricing option as well.  

Question : What parts of Texas do you offer your multi family apartment solar screen installation services for?

& Answer :  Not for residential, but for multi family apartment solar window screen installations, I service our home base of Austin Texas and travel to Waco TX, San Marcos Texas, New Braunsfels TX and San Antonio Texas.

Question : Our multifamily apartment complex is within the city limits of Austin TX, can I get an Austin Energy Rebate?   And how much of a $$ Rebate should I expect to see / get?

& Answer :  Yes, we can for sure look into getting you an Austin Energy rebate.  There are quite a few things that have to align to make that happen, like the property has to be ECAD Compliant and the property CAN NOT be on the City of Austin's repeat offenders list of violations.  We can verify all this for you.  Windows that qualify for the rebates have to fit many of the cities parameters like they can not be under a 6' or large overhang. They have to face a certain direction. They can't be too close to another building. Lots of variables, all of which we will work out. When I see the property to work up pricing for it, I'll assess all this and give you an estimation as to what to expect back from Austin Energy in form of a rebate. The rebate actually goes to us, so when we bill you it will show that rebate as a deduction.  To get an idea of amounts, on a $40,000 install, the rebate could be as high as $20,000, so that entire job would only cost you $20,000.  The rebates also take a while to process, we are dealing with the city after all, and they never make anything easy and expedient.  You can expect about 30-45 days extra to add on to the project time just because of involving the city.  With all that said, the rebates could be sizeable and well worth it.

MOCHA 90% Fabric Solar Window Screens w/ Grid Patterns Installation Examples

 

my Video Product Eval:  Through this video product eval I quickly run through the following pictures with you, just like I would if we were on the phone. 

Question : I want to dress up the solar screens, -can I get grid patterns on my solar screens?  

& Answer :  Yes, simply let us know and we will give you that as pricing.  It's about 30% more in cost roughly.  Look through the pictures to see what the grid patterns look like on multi family properties.

Question : What parts of Texas do you offer your multi family apartment solar screen installation services for?

& Answer :  Not for residential, but for multi family apartment solar window screen installations, I service our home base of Austin Texas and travel to Waco TX, San Marcos Texas, New Braunsfels TX and San Antonio Texas.

Question :  What is better, the 80% or 90% fabric?  What density do you recommend we use?  

& Answer :  The 90% gives you the BEST concealment.  The 90% covers the windows the best to not be able to see through.  See 90% apartment solar screen examples hereAnd 80% multi-family solar screen examples here.  Experience has taught me that you want the darkest solar fabric to conceal the windows the most.  The 80% fabric is great, but it does not totally hide the interior's belongings.  The 90% fabric very much does conceal the windows the best.  I strongly recommend the 90% sun shade fabric.

Question : Why would I want the solar screens for apartments?  What are the benefits for getting multi-family solar window screens?  Why would my multi-family apartment property benefit from the solar screens for windows?

& Answer :  1) The solar screens will DRASTICALLY transform the look of the property.  2) The property will flow better in appearance.  3) Th Property with a fresh paint job will look refreshed, everything will look clean and uniform. 4) The property will really tie in together well in appearance.  5) The sales team LOVES  the solar screens because they cover the tenant's windows.  They hide the mess within a unit.  6) And, make everything look the same.  The property shows so much better.  The property will look clean and uniform.

Question : Should we get spares?  Should we get spare solar screens?

& Answer :  Absolutely and I will council with you about this.  Tenants WILL damage the screens, you CAN count on that. You will want spares to know what to charge the tenants when they damage them and also to have as readily available replacements.  

Question : Can we EASILY source spare screens from you in the future?  

& Answer :  Yes, we create an account for you within our screen order system HobbsScreens.com which will have every size we used on your property.  This easily will allow you to order at any point replacement screens.  2 years from now, or 10 years from now, your screen measurements will be recorded within our replacement screen website to easily order replacements.  We try to make this all simple !!!

Question : Should I put the solar screens on all of the windows of our multi-family property?

& Answer :  This is a preference (personal judgment) call.  For sure the obviously visible windows you will want to put the solar screens on.  I can of course give you pricing breakdowns for all options and you can make up your own mind.  I have done projects that leave off the hidden back windows.  I have also done projects that leave off the windows within the walkways.  We can do whatever you want, whatever you feel will look best, and what is within budget.

Question : Can you ship your solar window screens?  We have an apartment complex out of state that we would like the solar screens for, can you ship them to us?  How do we measure for the solar screens?  How do we make sure we would be getting screens that will fit our apartment complexes windows? 

& Answer :  Yes, I for sure ship my solar screens for apartment buildings.  I have a system for doing this.  I will extensively work with your staff to measure, to make sure we have the measurements and quantities down.  And, your staff can install them or you can have your painters or even landscapers put them up.  Give me a call and I'll go over with you my system, how I ship screens to you and how we make sure they will fit, so there are no issues when you get them.  I'll explain my process when you call.  I also ship in large numbers my insect bug screens for windows and sliding door screens for sliding glass doors as well to apartment multifamily complexes.

Question : Can a Solar Screen be installed on an apartment swing door?  How about sliding doors for our apartment complex? 

& Answer :  Yes, when we are screening the windows for the entire apartment complex, we can also make and install solar screens for your swing doors and the sliding glass doors.  I can make and install just sliding bug screens doors or sliding door solar screen doors along with a pocket to slide the door behind, shown as C below.  This sliding solar screen door system provides shade coverage for the entire sliding door.  See the following pictures.

Question : Our multifamily apartment complex is within the city limits of Austin TX, can I get an Austin Energy Rebate?   How much of a $ Rebate $ should I expect to see / get?

& Answer :  Yes, we can for sure get you an Austin Energy rebate.  There are quite a few things that have to align to make that happen, like the property has to be ECAD Compliant and the property CAN NOT be on the City of Austin's repeat offenders list of violations.  We can verify all this for you.  Windows that qualify for the rebates have to fit many of the cities parameters like they can not be under a 6' or larger overhang.  They have to face a certain direction.   They can not be too close to another building.  Lots of variables, all of which we will work out.  When I see the property to work up pricing for it, I'll assess all this and give you an estimation as to what to expect back from Austin Energy in form of a rebate.  The rebate actually goes to us, so when we bill you it will show that rebate as a deduction.  To get an idea of amounts, on a $40,000 install, the rebate could be as high as $20,000, so that entire job would only cost you $20,000.  The rebates also take a while to process, we are dealing with the city after all, and they never make anything smooth, quick or easy.  You can expect about 45-60 days extra to add on to the project time just because of involving the city.  With all that said, the rebates could be sizeable and well worth it.  

Question : Do you use mitered (45 angle) cut corners or do you use plastic square cut corners?  

& Answer :  I only build my screens, all of my screens with mitered corners.  Not doing so exposes the plastic corners which in time will get brittle and break from the harsh Texas sun.  In my mind, it is irresponsible to use exposed plastic corners.  It's cheap and easy upfront, which is why soooo many assemblers do, but it's cutting corners.  Something I will not do.  I do not cut corners of any kind.

Question : What size and thickness of framing do you use to make your apartment solar screens out of?  Does the 1" wide heavy duty framing really make a big difference?  
& Answer :  I am a HUGE proponent of building the solar screens out of my heavy-duty solar screen 1" framing versus that flimsy 3/4" framing.  When I send you the proposal I will include pricing for both options for comparison.  Then the choice is left up to you.

Question :  To help keep the sun screens in place, do you additionally secure your solar shade screens?   Tenants will mess with the solar screens, what can you do to help secure the solar window screens? 

& Answer :  I ALWAYS will secure the solar window screens with either casement clips or self-tapping screws to help hold the solar screens in place so the tenants CAN NOT easily push them out.  I constantly see multi family installs all over where you will have windows with missing screens.  And it just does not look good to me.  I find myself going and inspecting a lot of these jobs down by other installers and low and behold the people (not us) that installed those screens DID NOT additionally secure the screens, they just slid them in and walked away.  Not me, I make every attempt to secure these so the strong winds or the tenants can not easily knock them out.  I go through the extra steps to make sure my solar screens are secured to your apartment complexes' windows well.
