This is a Leander Texas solar window screen installation that we installed 14 solar window screens on this home. This home has red brick exterior with a white trim all the way around the house. Will used our dark chocolate brown 80 and 90% solar window screen Fabric and white framing. All of these windows required surface-mounting for the installation technique. These windows were not made to hold a full size solar screen. These windows are made so that in order to install a full-size screen you have to use metal turn clips or directly screw the screens on. The metal turn Clips are installed on the leg sides of the solar window sun screens and with pressure they hold the solar screen up against the window.

You can easily just direct screw solar window sun screens like this to the window. To make it so that you can easily take the screens off and put them back on, or you can replace the screens at a later date and not have to drill new holes into the windows, by using these turn Clips, all you have to do is loosen the turn clips and remove the screen from the window. If you have to make a new screen, you just replicate the size of the screen that you are removing, and simply set the new screen in place and turn those turn Clips to hold the screen up against the window. If the screens were direct screwed, and you have to replace a screen, you would get a screen made of the same size, and you would have to pay really close attention when screwing the new screen into the window so that you can screw into your existing old holes. Otherwise, you could just screw a new screen into the window and create new holes.
That is a half arched solar screen over the front door, it’s measurements are 41 inches wide and the Center Height measurement is 18 in. For solar window sun screens like this, arched solar window sun screens like this that fit over non-opening windows, we will center a screw to the left and to the right of the screen, centered there on the leg height, it’s those screws that we use to hold the screen onto the window framing.
I don’t believe this customer got any sort of sun into the window over the front door, that arched window, so from my recollection, I think the customer chose to put a solar screen up there for continuity. The front of the home would have looked odd if it had a arched screen to the left there over the opening window but not a screen on the window over the front door. I believe the customer put that screen over the front door so that the front of his home looked complete.
Here’s a horizontal sliding window here on the second floor, front of the home. We made this solar screen out of our 80% solar screen fabric. Solar screens for horizontal sliding windows typically get direct screwed, meaning we can’t use any kind of turned clips. Some horizontal sliding windows will have tracks to hold a large screen where we can spring load the screen.
This is the left, southwest facing side of the home. This side of the home gets at least six hours of Sun during the summer, therefore it warranted the 90% solar screen fabric upgrade. We upgraded these windows from the 80% solar screens to the 90% solar window sun screens.
We surface mounted both of the solar window sun screens to the windows, each solar screen received four turn Clips two 8 inches from the top and two 8 inches from the bottom on the left and right leg sides.
This is the right side of the home where there is only one window, and it’s the north side of the home. This customer could have gotten away with leaving this window uncovered, but to keep the home uniform, to make the home look finished and complete, the customer chose to put a solar screen on this window.
This is the back of the home, the back of this home gets full on sun. The back of this home receives the blunt of the afternoon sun. You will see that there are no trees, no patio coverings, nothing to shade any of these windows. This homeowner rightfully chose to put 90% solar screens on his back patio doors. Those doors got blasted by the Sun, now with 90% solar window sun screens, he has 90% shade for those doors, for the inside of his home.
All of these windows on the back of the home received the 90% solar window sun screens.
I remember putting these screens on (some four years ago from when I am writing this). I remember when I measured this home. I’m remember when I measured this home writing a note on my measurement sheet saying to install these screens during the morning, because the backside of that house was so hot, that time of the year, on that day. With the 90% solar screen fabric giving this guy 90% shade for these windows, the inside of his home has got to be a staggeringly cooler difference.
