Vinyl Austin Solar Window Screens Project

For this solar window screen project we installed a total of 29 Windows on this home. We put solar window screens on every window of this home to include the back patio door. This customer that leave any window uncovered. These windows are vinyl windows, therefore there’s not a tract of any sort at the top and bottom to hold a full size screen in place, so like with all vinyl windows will use small 3/4 inch screws to direct screw the solar screen to the outside edge of the vinyl window framing.

This is a picture of the front of the home. I’d like you to pay close attention to the window over the front door as you will see that is a recessed area that gets no sun and that’s an arched window. The customer chose to put a solar screen over the front door for uniformity. Because it’s an arched window it cost $20 more, therefore the cost to do this was around $40. The customer chose to spend the $40 so that every window on the home had a solar window screen and it looked uniform. Additionally over the garage there is a window there called a dormer window, this Dormer window does not let heat into any of the rooms, as this window feeds into the attic space. The homeowner, for uniformity, wanted to make sure that every window on the home receive a solar window screen, therefore this dormer window received a solar window screen as well.

The following picture here is of the back of the home. The back of the home is west-facing, therefore this side of the home receives the bulk amount of the Sun. Because the side of the home is the west-facing sign recommended that the customer use the 90% shade fabric. But not 80% shade fabric is 10% denser than are 80% fabric that we used for all of the other windows of this home. Notice that all of the windows on the back of this home received a solar screen including those windows under that back patio.

This is a picture of the right side of the house it’s got (1) 33 by 58 solar window screen and (2) 45 by 9 inch solar window screens. I’m glad that this customer, for uniformity, put solar window screens on these 45 by 9 inch Windows. Over the years many customers have chosen to not put solar window screens on small Windows like this. I think it just looks so much better, and the home looks so uniform, that I can’t in good conscience make a recommendation to you to leave windows like this uncovered. The cost is not all that much to do these little windows, but sometimes people are wanting to cut back as much as they can on cost therefore they leave these little Windows uncovered. We are all different, we all have different personalities, therefore leaving Windows like this uncovered do not necessarily bother some people the way it does others. If you like your home to look clean and consistent, you like everything to be in its place, then my suspicion is you will want to as well cover these little Windows like this.

Here’s a great picture showing a set of side by side 33 by 58 windows. It’s hard to tell in this picture, but 8 in from the top and 8 in from the bottom on each left and right side of the screen there’s a really small 3/4 inch long tech (self tapping) screw holding that solar window screen onto the window. When you take these solar window screens down, you need to put the solar window screens back onto the same window that they came off of so that the screw holes all lineup. A suggestion maybe, when you take the screens off to label them.
