A great addition to getting more protection from the sun for your home or business without obstructing the view of the outdoors are retractable shades. They stop up to 98% of solar heat rays from entering your home without completely closing off the views from inside. In addition, they help your home stay cooler which will lead to decreased air conditioning costs and lower energy bills, especially during the hot California summer days.
Here are the two manufacturers we work with:
A Shade That can Cover It All
Universal Motion Screens offer a variety of options for your home ranging from motorized retractable screens, cable motion screens, vinyl screens and the Arion Shading System. The best part about the screens is that they are multifunctional, serving as weather protection, solar protection, and as a privacy screen.
The motorized screens fit openings up to 22.5 ft wide and are customized to fit any window, doorway or aperture. The convenience of the motorized screen allows you to control the screen through a wall mounted remote, handheld remote or an app on your phone. For the cable motion screens, there is a cable guided system that utilizes stainless steel hold downs to anchor them into either the floor, ground or wall/post and the guides.
The vinyl screens use both Sattler and Serge Ferrari vinyl options which are put in place with mounting brackets that create a true four season patio area with unobstructed views of the outdoors yet protection from it as well. The Arion Shading System is an oversized roller shade with an aesthetically pleasing appearance of an interior shade. There’s a motor or crank option available, cable or rod guidance options and all the components are aluminum. It’s perfect if you are looking to cover a large area.
