Solar Screen For Windows & Solar Shades

While natural sunlight is a great thing, it can also cause unwanted glare or hot spots during particular parts of the day. Installing Metro Screenworks solar screens can block up to 90% of that energy, and will as a result, help to increase the efficiency of your home's heating and cooling system. Therefore, adding solar screens will not only make your home more comfortable and energy efficient, but they will eventually pay for themselves.


Sun blocking window screens and sun shades for windows can reduce glare, heat, and hot spots in your home, as well as damage from UV rays. Whether you live somewhere like Phoenix that has 365 days of sunshine or not, when you install our solar screens or solar shades you can experience increased energy efficiency and comfort — with these benefits, solar screens and shades may eventually pay for themselves.
