For this Austin Texas solar screen installation, we installed 27 solar screens on this Austin Texas home. We used the black solar screen fabric with white frame. The front of the home received six solar screens, right side of the home received three solar screens, the back of the home received ten solar screens and the left side of the home received four solar screens.
Austin TX Solar Screens 27 Windows
We also put solar screens on the garage apartment, we put 80% solar screens on the front, 80% solar screen on the back, and for the right side patio door we use a 90% solar screen. That is the only 90% solar screen that we installed on this house. The customer chose to use the 80% solar screens for all of their windows with the exception of that one window (patio door) that faces Due West.
The next picture shows the back of the home. We put solar screens on all of the windows and the back swing doors. Also you’ll see there to the left, you’ll see the garage apartment where we put a solar screen on that window as well. Look how nice and uniform it looks having solar screens on all the windows to include those back patio doors. These windows are even recessed, they are within that patio, therefore they do not receive a whole lot of sun but because the customer wanted this installation to look complete, he put solar screens on all of those windows.
This is a great picture that shows the back patio doors wearing our 80% black solar screens with white frame. Often people will want to try to use a different color of framing for the door screens that we put on the patio door. Like they will want to use a dark framing that closely matches the fabric. Or, they will try to use a frame color, one of our five, that better matches the door. I personally feel like it looks so much better when all of the screens look the same. So if you have some screens on your windows that have white framing then it is my recommendation to use white framing for the screen that’s on the back door. I think it looks odd if you have white framing for your windows, and you have another color of framing for your doors.
Sitting out on this back patio could have been enhanced if we were to have installed some of our Austin patio roller shades. Our Austin patio roller shades roll up and down by a pull chain. The goal to give temporary shade for the patio when the shade is needed. Our Austin patio roller shades are not a permanent shading device like our Austin Texas Solar Screens are. What’s on these windows here are solar screens for windows.
This picture shows the front of the home and the three Windows here to the right of the home. This customer could have easily left those three Windows uncovered because they are being blocked from the Sun by the garage that is there to the right. But correctly, the customer chose to put screens on these windows, every window on his home has a solar screen. Just imagine what it would have look like if there were no screens on these three right side windows.
For all of my solar screen Austin TX installations, I recommend that you put solar screens on all the windows of the side of the home. Point being if you’re going to put solar screens on the front of your windows and think you just want to put solar screens on some of the front windows but not all, I strongly encourage you to consider what it will look like. I am not a fan of putting solar screens on just some of the windows.

This is a picture of the left side of the home where we used the 80% fabric for all of these windows. These windows all have a track at the top and a track at the bottom to hold a full size screen. We used leaf springs at the top of the screen to apply pressure to hold a screen in place.
Here’s another picture of the right side of the home, where we shot the picture from the back of the home looking at the right side and showing at that garage apartment Window. The customer could have easily left that garage apartment Window uncovered but again, for uniformity, putting a solar screen on that garage apartment Window is the answer, it just looks good
For this Austin TX solar screens project, I only installed one 90% solar screen and this is where I put it, on this garage apartment’s patio door. This side of the home is west-facing. You can tell I put the screens on sometime in the afternoon because you can see the Shadows from the tree branches there on the side of the home.
