Porches, patios, and decks allow you to enjoy the usually ideal weather that South Florida is known for. However, when the excessive heat of the summer months make its presence felt, it is necessary to have effective protection and comfort in order to partake of these amenities for any length of time.
With this in mind, exterior shades provide an appealing combination of functionality and visual appeal. Since these shades tend to be larger and installed in higher, harder-to-access areas, a remote controlled-version is often ideal, allowing the user to control the amount of light streaming into a patio with the touch of a button.
Exterior shades are typically hung outside porch windows, allowing them to block the sun before its rays reach the glass panes and impact the temperature and comfort level of the room they are shielding. In this way, exterior shades provide the additional benefit of keeping cooling bills at a tolerable level in South Florida’s tropical climate.
