Spring is in full swing, and it's time for your family to fully enjoy the weather. Exterior shades are an excellent addition to your home, making it easier for you to utilize your home's outdoor living spaces. Here are just a few of the benefits of adding exterior shades to your home:

3 Benefits of Exterior Shades

Enjoy Your Outdoor Living Space More with Exterior Shades

1. Exterior Shades Can Keep Pests Away from Your Outdoor Spaces

Bugs make it difficult to enjoy your outdoor living space. ZipRite Shades add a temporary enclosure to your porch or patio. These shades fit securely into their tracks, creating a solid seal that insects can't penetrate. You can select a manual shade, or you may opt for an automated style, which you can operate simply by pressing a button.

2. Shades Protect Your Furnishings from the Sun's Rays

Even though the sun feels amazing on a clear spring morning, this doesn't mean you want to expose your home's furniture and decor to potentially damaging UV rays. Protect both your interior furnishings and items in your outside living areas by adding shades to your home. 

The Elite Patio Roll Shade mounts to your home's windows. These shades are great for protecting your indoor furniture. You can even program the shades to open and close on a pre-set schedule.

Your outside furniture is especially susceptible to damage from the elements. The Titan Patio Roll Shade will block the sun from your patio, keeping your décor safe from UV rays and allowing you to enjoy the outdoors more.

3. You Can Reduce Your Energy Bills

The heat causes your energy bills to go up as your cooling system works to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. Exterior shades prevent 98% of the sun's rays from entering your home, meaning your air conditioner doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the desired temperature. This allows for lower monthly energy bills.  

Exterior shades come in a variety of hues and styles, making it easy for you to find a look that complements your home's aesthetic. If you’re ready to install exterior shades on your home, find a dealer near you to schedule a free, in-home consultation today.
