Roller shades have been the fastest growing window covering in Utah for the last few years. True, roller shades have been around for a long time, however their revitalized design has made them the perfect window covering for many of our customers. Often used as an alternative to cellular shades, rollers shades have a clean line look that many customer prefer. When rolled up, they leave a completely unobstructed window that is ideal for people who love wide open views and light. With no horizontal surfaces, dusting is a thing of the past for roller shade owners.
Solar Vs. Roller Shades Utah
Solar shades are identical to roller shades in general form and function. The only difference is the fabric used. Solar shades are the ideal solution for ultra violet and solar heat reduction, while still maintaining a view. Although most often used in commercial applications like office building and restaurants, solar shades can be ideal for homes with a view. Solar shade fabrics are rated by a percent openness factor. This is literally a measurement of the percentage of open space between the fabric weaves. Fabrics are available with openness factors of 1% to 25%. In Utah, we typically recommend between 1% and 5%.
