Tips when shopping for Patio Bamboo Shades & Solar Shades

Tips when shopping for Bamboo Shades & Solar Shades for your patio

Weather-proof materials and colors - obviously your patio / porch shade will be outside and therefore exposed to all kinds of weather conditions; so you want to be sure that they are built with weather proof fabrics and materials.

Why is this importance? Well, for one, here in southeastern NC the sun and the elements can severely weather outdoor furniture quickly, including outdoor shades. Over time this will cause them to fade and/or warp pretty rapidly if they are not weather-proof. So make sure that your bamboo woven wood or solar shades on your patio are made from weather-proof materials and fabrics so that you can continue to enjoy them for many years to come.

2. Rust resistant hardware - When installing your solar shade or bamboo woven wood shade be sure to use stainless steel screws and hardware.You definitely don't want to pay good money for a nice set of patio / porch shades only to have rust stains streaking down the middle of them. Stainless steel hardware will ensure that this does not happen.

3. Mildew/mold resistant fabric - there is nothing worse than hanging your new solar shade or beautiful bamboo shade only to find that a few weeks later they are full of mold and mildew. This is more prevalent in humid climates like we have here in Wilmington NC. You want to make sure that your solar or bamboo shades are made from a mold and mildew resistant material. This will not only cut down on cleaning time, but will keep them looking new over the years.

  If you follow these 3 tips when shopping for your outdoor patio shade it will ensure that your shades will continue to add that extra beauty and privacy to your outdoor living space for many years.

  1. Solar shades replace conventional window screens and like the conventional kind, they don't block out the view and they allow air to come in the room. Unlike conventional screens, they block out the sun's harmful rays. Thanks a lot.
