Solar Screen Pros, Benefits, and Cost Savings


The real advantage to solar screens is that they are one of the most inexpensive solutions available. If you do the measurements and installation yourself, they can cost less than $50 for an average 35 X 70 inch window. If you have a contractor install them professionally, you could spend around $7.50 a square foot. Compared to complete window replacement, this is definitely a cheaper option, particularly if you are just looking for a temporary solution. Solar screens can also provide some privacy for the interior of your home during the day; however, you should know that if you have lights on in the house at night, the screens will no longer block the view into the house from the outside.

Twtichell's Solar Screen is a durable and tough TEXTILENE® brand synthetic fabric made of PVC coated polyester.

While blocking the sun's rays, Solar Screen will reduce energy cost and provide protection to your indoor furnishings. Flame resistant and fade resistant, Solar Screen is a durable alternative for insect screen. Excellent for daytime privacy without blocking the view, this versatile fabric will endure years of outdoor use. TEXTILENE® 90 Solar Screen blocks up to 90% of the sun's rays.
