DAMAGES IN SHIPPING:
When you receive your shipment, if there is any sign of damage to the outer packaging, you MUST notate that there was such damage on the bill of lading when you sign it and send us photos of the damaged packages and shade products. If you do not, we will NOT be able to replace parts or shades that are damaged. We can ONLY REPLACE, we CANNOT REFUND for damaged shipments. We are constrained by the freight companies’ policies in this matter.
Vandalism, improper operation, customer installation, any installer fees (North Solar Screen will not assume responsibility for any labor installation problems, including NBI and installation of replacement of in-warranty parts), wear on cords, chains pulleys and locks, rusting of décor bar, change of color from continued exposure to strong sunlight, damage to exterior shade and/or motor when not retracted in windy conditions.
We reserve the right to request specific pictures/videos detailing the problem to send to our factory for inspection and final decision. We may require you to speak to factory personnel for assistance troubleshooting to determine what parts need replacing or if the product needs to be remade. We are not responsible for the payment of any labor associated with the re-installation of parts or shades.
Battery life is estimated based on raising and lowering the shade once daily. We do not warranty batteries. Estimated battery life for a single 12 volt wand is about 1-1.5 years. A Booster Battery Wand extends battery life to about 2 years. The life of the battery depends upon the weight of the material and how often it is used per day. Average battery life is about 1.5-2 years depending upon those factors.

Inspection of Defect:
We reserve the right to inspect shades to determine if there is a manufacturing error. Please do not return shades unless we request it. Returns MUST be put in a box and then shipped to us. Returns MUST be shipped in a box and packed well to prevent damage. Freight is not covered.
Inspect all cartons immediately for damage. Please do not accept your shipment if the cartons are damaged.
Our Return Policy:
When shades are ordered from North Solar Screen, our shade materials must be cut to fit. Once materials have been cut, orders CAN NOT be cancelled.
Color Disclaimer for All Shades
We always recommend that you received samples before ordering your shades. Despite every effort to accurately duplicate each product’s color when scanned to our website, actual colors may vary. Due to monitor and/or video card differences, subtle variations in color and surface texture may not be fully revealed. Again, these are custom products and CANNOT be returned for reasons other than warranty repair or service. Therefore you need to be certain that any slight variations occurring between the actual color, and the representation on our website, will be acceptable. Slight variations might occur between the sample and the finished product. These dye lot variations are common to the manufacturing process, and are within industry tolerances. They are not defects. Due to these variations we recommend that when identical products and colors are to used for more than one opening, that they all be ordered at the same time. North Solar Screen cannot be responsible for dye lot variances.
Cleaning Crystal View Shades
1. Operate shade daily. The up and down movement will “shake off’ dust before it becomes a problem.
2. Dust frequently with a feather duster or soft cloth to prevent dirt build up and maintain clarity. The top of the shade is the front. Roll shade full up to clean the top section: roll down and dust the next section until shade is fully extended.
3. Fingerprints and most marks are easily removed with a lemon based cleaner, called Goo-Gone, on a soft cloth. Goo-Gone can be found in home improvement stores and is non toxic.
4. If possible, leave shade in brackets while cleaning. This prevents problem of handling and reinstalling shades. If you must remove shade from brackets for cleaning make sure the work surface is flat, smooth and clean.
5. Should shade be excessively dirty (after dusting) wash with a mild detergent and a soft cloth or sponge. Use sufficient liquid to wash away dirt deposits without scratching the shade surface. Dry while shade is fully extended; water drains easily from the vertical surface.
6. Blot dry with a soft cloth and lightly polish to remove water spots (easiest to work a small area at a time.) Be sure to dry the Decor Bar bottom and Roller too.
Economical Crystal View Testimonials
“Karen and Carla were TERRIFIC when we had questions about the Mylar shades for our severe glare problem. They were also terrific in proactively making sure we understood aspects of our installation request. North Solar sent us samples quickly, and answered all our questions about using these shades in the unconventional way we had in mind. We are EXTREMELY happy with North Solar Screens. And the shades are fabulous.”
Jody Sandman – Brooklyn, NY
“Although we have not measured the temperature difference, it must be significant. Now we can comfortably use two west-facing rooms – a sunroom and a bedroom – during the heat of the day. We feel good about conserving energy and almost certainly trimming our cooling bill.”
