We know about inside and outside mounts, but how about outdoor mounts, on the outside of your house? It’s completely possible and actually one of the most effective placements for solar shades. Outdoor solar shades are weather resistant, making them a practical choice if you’re going to put them up outside and expose them to the elements. Sunblocking solar shades can slip easily between the pillars of your outdoor deck or hide under eaves to add a discrete layer of privacy and light protection. They are easily mountable to any wall or ceiling and can even be motorized, allowing you to adjust their position from comfortably without even stepping out of your home.
An outdoor mount will be especially useful if you’ve chosen a darker color solar shade. Since dark colors attract more heat, mounting a dark solar shade inside your home might pull additional heat through your window. Outdoor solar shades are a perfect solution for patios or decks as well, to help temper aggressive evening sunlight and save your guests from squinting. By mounting these sun blockers outdoors, you’ll be stopping the heat at the source which could even save you over 40% on your energy bill. Let your shades have their moment in the sun!
