Protect Your Home with Exterior Motorized Shades

Do you have hard-to-reach blinds on your windows that are a hassle to open and close every day? Are you frustrated with hanging cords that get twisted up in knots or get in the way? Shades with exterior motorization can help provide safety and convenience for your home and family. Here are three ways shades featuring exterior motorization can benefit you in protecting your home.

Minimize Sun Exposure Damage

Sun exposure in the Southwest area can deter you from enjoying the outdoors. It can be uncomfortable to sit outside with the beaming sun shining on your delicate skin and it can also cause significant damage to indoor and outdoor furnishings, rendering them obsolete. Often, we find temporary solutions to protect us from the sun with the intent of a permanent solution.

Luckily, the pursuit of a permanent solution has been conceptualized in which durability is fueled by product lines featuring desert-specific components and materials that ensure longer-lasting, better-performing window coverings resilient to the harsh sun. Southwest Blinds & Shutters offers exterior motorized shades that are engineered to block up to 98% of harmful UV rays.

Exterior motorization shades can be an excellent investment for sun damage protection. Effortlessly program timers to lower and raise shades at specified times of the day and use a handheld remote anywhere within a 65-foot radius around your home without a line of sight for easy operation.

Greater Enjoyment of Your Outdoor Space

Shades featuring exterior motorization can help you as a homeowner to fully enjoy your outdoor space. The durability of exterior motorized window coverings provides better insulation to assist in regulating temperatures for your comfort while outdoors.

Sometimes we want to go outside, but we don’t necessarily want to mingle with our neighbors, so exterior motorized shades make it easy to go from “out in the open” to “my own little sanctuary” with a click of a button. Transparent material options help to filter lighting while preserving the view of the landscape you invest so much time perfecting.

Durability Against Harsh Weather Conditions

Heavy rain, strong gusts of wind, and hail can appear suddenly in the Southwest and threaten damage to your home. The material used in exterior motorization shades can withstand these elements through the intentional durability cultivated with desert-specific components. Aside from weather protection, these exterior shades also pose as a barrier for insects and other critters.

To ensure your motorized window coverings protect you all year long, make sure to perform an inspection on a regular basis for any minor issues. Clear any debris from the tracks and look for any loose components. Contact a professional immediately if you notice any potential problems. These treatments are often protected by warranties to help cover expenses if damage does occur.

Affordable Exterior Motorization Shades for Your Southwest Home

The weather conditions in the Southwest can lead to expensive damage to your home and valuables. Investing in motorized window coverings can result in savings that would have otherwise gone to repairs or replacements. Southwest Blind & Shutters offers a comprehensive range of window coverings for homeowners living in the Southwest region. When you buy three or more motorized shades, you’ll receive a free Automated Hub to give you greater control over protecting your home from outdoor elements.

  • They did a great job installing my shutters. Very polite and went the extra mile to do some minor adjustments that I requested. He identified a couple of things that were incorrect on my order and made sure new items were ordered. He came back to reinstall the corrected pieces and did a great job.
