I was hoping to get some recommendations on installing solar shades.
Can it be done by myself or does anyone have any recommended companies
in the Dallas Fort Worth Area?
Also, what is an approximate cost on these things?
Do you mean cellular and with sealing track of R 3.5-5. If you use them
on south exposures with dual pane check your glass warranty first, it
may or may not be advised as daytime heating will trap heat affecting
All screens reduce solar heat gain, and visability. I remove mine in
winter. But I would realy worry about how much your visability is
reduced and their claim of energy reduction for an average home, you
wont save what they claim. Now interior cellular shades work, up to R 5,
your best dual pane lowE is only r 3.5 so you can more than doulbe R
value. Screens help only a bit with sun, Cellular shades help winter
summer day or night

I've tried using films with some success. One recommendation, use
lots of fluid/spray and do it during the warm season. The film slides
better and contracts the window better.
