Posted by Polar Shades on Jun 8, 2018 2:27:08 PM

Summer is the time of year when we want to use our patios the most. However, Las Vegas sees about 300 days of sun each year. During June through August, temperatures rise to 100+ degrees. In order to beat the summer heat and be able to enjoy your outdoor space, install exterior shades. There are a variety of shades to choose from that will keep the sun out, reduce the temperature and eliminate glare and UV rays.
