We love our new shade. It arrived in good order a few days ago and yesterday my wife and I installed it. It only took about three hours. (We probably could have done it faster but we worked slowly checking and double-checking and, even in some cases, triple-checking our measurements.) Your instructions and videos are very detailed and they made the whole project a breeze. From start to finish North Solar Screen’s customer service was first rate.

Just wanted to let you know that we love love love our solar screens!

We researched these solar screens for 3 months and talked extensively to six different companies but Your phone conversation with me was far more detailed and informative than any of the others. Your website is by far the most well organized and detailed than any we looked at.  The information on the website answered all the questions we had including the installation videos.  Your expertise and your website sealed the deal (and a great price).  We are impressed with the quality of the solar screens and motors… fantastic!! Thanks!

We love our shades. Everything works terrific even though installed 10 months after delivery. The delivery was well protected, the quality is top notch, and they work great with the controllers.

We are more than thrilled with this investment and folks who come by are amazed by the massive size, the smooth and quiet operation and most of all the protection and comfort it offers us on the porch or in the home. Its so nice to be able to set at our dining room table and eat dinner without cupping our hands over our eyes to keep from going blind. Great Product that is well made and backed and supported by great people who help me overcome every challenge in resolving our issues on this house from heat and glare. I’m just dang impressed!!!!

I wish to compliment your company, as I am very happy with the Baby Grande Solar shade I recently installed. The quality of the hardware and shade is excellent and the installation was straight forward. Now my wife and I can enjoy our west facing patio despite the sun beating down at times. It’s nice to see a quality product still available! Keep up the good work!

Thank you North Solar Screen!!! Our patio is usable in the afternoon now. Super easy to install and great customer service.

Thank you for the heavy duty sun shade.  It works great.  I have to say that was one of the best constructed items I’ve seen in a very long time.  The online instruction video was THE best I’ve ever seen.  It only took my wife and I a few hours to have it installed and working.  It was a pleasure dealing with everyone at North Solar Screen throughout the process.  You have a great team, and a fantastic product.

Eric Hornquist, TX

The 3% openness Baby Grande Shades were absolutely the right choice for the hot bright Texas sun. Thanks for a truly great product.

I recently purchased your outdoor solar shades for my porch. Karen guided me through the entire process. She answered all my questions and believe me I had plenty. We are very please with the quality and fit of the shades. Thank you for your great service.

Transparent exterior shades provide a functional and decorative solution to your outdoor living spaces. Enjoy your view, comfort and daytime privacy by reducing the sun’s glare and heat, keeping your porch or patio cooler, and protecting your outdoor furniture from fading. Customize your own shade with your choice of color and weave openness (which determine heat rejection and light diffusion). North Solar Screen will work with you to find the perfect outdoor solar shades for your environment. We guide you through the entire process step by step to ensure you measure correctly. 

Our custom manufactured sun shades can be installed in a wide variety of styles and sizes. For full privacy, check out our selection of total blackout privacy sunshades. If you are looking for an exterior shade that can withstand winds up to 50 MPH try our Citadel™ Zipper Track System.
