Motorized Shades.. The Perfect Alternative to a Screened In Porch

Screening in your porch can be a great idea. But, it can also be a costly and time-consuming process. Our custom outdoor patio shades are an affordable alternative, and they are much more convenient, allowing you to use a remote control to open and close.

Motorized Patio Shades vs Screening in your Porch

Have you ever considered closing your patio or porch with screens to keep out nasty bugs and critters? If you are like thousands of other homeowners across the country, the big decision is….”Do we permanently close off our outdoor living space or leave it open to the outside for easy access to the yard, pool or kids play area?”

Consider Motorized Shades

Now, thanks to our cable free, motorized patio shades (also called outdoor roller shades, solar shades and porch shades), this decision doesn’t have to be permanent. Nor do you have to contend with clumsy pull down screens that don’t fully cover the area and are subject to damage from high winds. 

Our new motorized outdoor shades feature a slotted track that keeps your new screen completely in place until you wish to open them with your handy remote control. 

You can open your custom outdoor shades fully, partially or close them completely, all convenient and cable free with the touch of a button for both your convenience and peace of mind. You can also customize your privacy level to suit your needs. Our custom outdoor shades are fully retractable to avoid any unsightly cords.

Motorized Deck Shades or a Screened in Porch? | Pros and Cons

Motorized Patio Shades vs. Screened in Porch

A screened in porch might be right for some people, but we believe that our motorized shades are better.. here’s why..

Pros of Motorized Shades

Cost and Build Time

Motorized exterior shades are more cost effective to install than screening in your porch, and you don’t need any construction skills at all to put them up. At SCS, we’ll do it for you! Exterior motorized shades also come in a variety of styles and colors, so you can match your home’s decor. Make your outdoor living space not only functional, but beautiful as well.

Easy to Maintain

Our motorized deck shades are easy to maintain. They are easy to clean a vacuum cleaner attachment or with a damp cloth. The smooth finish of the fabric means that the time spent cleaning is minimal.

Durability

Motorized Patio Shades are durable and because we use only the finest materials, our shades are built to last.

Versatility of your View

With our deck shades, YOU control how much you want to see at any given time. Easily raise when you want to see out, and close when you want more protection or privacy, all with your convenient remote control.

Keep the Bugs and UV Rays Out

Our outdoor deck shades are a safe, convenient, and cost-effective way to keep your family comfortable and protected from bugs and mosquitoes. Unlike bug sprays that can irritate your skin, our fabric is 100% chemical free. Designed to provide protection from both UV rays and bugs, our fabric can be installed in a variety of ways that will fit your needs.

Block the Wind

Our deck shades not only look great but they also offer protection from strong winds so you can enjoy your day or evening.

Enjoy the Rain

Ever want to be outside and enjoy an afternoon thunderstorm? Block wind, keep out rain and stay outside for that thunderstorm.

Customize to Your Unique Style

Our motorized exterior shades are available in a variety of colors, textures, and styles, so you can complement your existing décor and personalize them to your individual design taste.

Cons of Screened in Porch

Cost

Having a screened-in porch can be expensive. It requires more materials and will take more time to build.

Maintenance

A screened in porch can wear over time. If one of your screens rips, it needs to be replaced.

Your View

If you have a beautiful yard, one of the best reasons to sit out on your porch is to take in the beauty. Screened-in porches are great for keeping bugs away and providing shelter from the elements. But a screened in porch isn’t open and unfiltered and can partially obstruct the view of your outside landscape. Exterior solar shades are built to withstand the elements and can be opened or closed depending on your your needs.

It’s Permanent

If you want versatility, then a screened in porch isn’t for you. Once your screens are installed, there isn’t an easy way to open and close them, unless you spend even more money and install windows.

Are Motorized Patio Shades Worth It?

Motorized outdoor patio shades are an excellent way to enjoy the outdoors. Outdoor patio shades are the best way to ensure that you stay cool and comfortable all year round.The best time to install motorized outdoor patio shades is during your construction phase, but they can be installed any time of the year. At Southern Custom Shutters, we will ensure that you can have a seamless installation and avoid installation headaches.

Motorized outdoor patio shades are also worth it if you live in a hot climate, as they provide more shade than screened in porches do. Motorized outdoor patio shades also offer more protection from harmful UV rays, and provide an extra layer of privacy for your house and family.

Sound Interesting?

We think so. Your home deserves the best and our motorized outdoor shades provide you with the opportunity to enhance your exterior décor and interior décor with beautiful, modern window treatments that give you ultimate control over what you see, when you want to see it.
