Do You Need Roller or Solar Shades?

Either/or situations are part of our daily lives. You either want something sweet or savory for breakfast. A drama or a comedy for movie night. Pasta or tacos for dinner. This either/or scenario is also often present when choosing between different window treatments. For example, would your home benefit better from a roller or solar shade? What is the difference between the two, anyway? If these questions have been rolling around in your mind recently, allow us to help you decide which option is best for your home’s needs. Imperial Blind & Shutter has the experience and knowledge you need to find the shade that will fit your home the best.

Choosing a Solar Shade

If sun protection and great views are at the top of your list when deciding between roller or solar shades, then the latter is the best fit for you. Solar shades protect your home from up to 99% of UV rays that can damage your home’s interiors over time, including flooring, artwork, and furniture. At the same time, these shades allow you to enjoy your views of the great outdoors. No more having to sacrifice views for sun protection and vice versa. Hunter Douglas Designer Solar Shades offer smooth operation, UV protection, and stunning view-through to provide you with one powerful window treatment.
