Here is a collection of Enviroblind Exterior Solar Shades images with inside and outside views. These images should give you an idea of what to expect with retractable solar shades and screens on your property. You can see in some of the images the contrast between areas that are shaded vs. unshaded. Motorized patio sun screens are great at shading people and furniture from sun glare, greatly improving your comfort level. Outdoor solar screens also help reduce energy use.
