Outdoor Shades Can Turn Underutilized Patios Into Shaded Retreats

Southwest Blinds’ exterior shades provide a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living spaces. Designed to block heat and glare before they reach your windows, these shades help regulate indoor temperatures and protect your furnishings from sun damage. With a focus on durability and weather resistance, exterior shades are an excellent investment for homes with outdoor entertaining areas or rooms that face direct sunlight. They enhance both the aesthetic appeal and energy efficiency of your home’s exterior.

Imagine having a cool oasis on your property that allows you to enjoy even the hottest of summer days. Think of all the time you could comfortably spend outside while entertaining friends, playing with the kids, or simply catching up on some rest and relaxation. To bring this vision to fruition, turn to the reliable experts at Southwest Blinds & Shutters. We offer premium outdoor shades that can add functionality to any property. Whether you want a patio shade or exterior window shade for added privacy and protection from the sun, we can assist you. Our exterior patio shades are available with cable guides, side channels, and zipper tracks, and they can be operated with a crank handle or motorized and controlled by remote, voice control, or home automation.

  • Blinds look awesome! The install was quick and lacked any drama. Just like I want. :-) We will definitely be buying from them again once we redo a couple areas in the house first.

  • 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.

  • The technician who measured our windows and eventually installed them did a professional job and was done very quickly. Got our rebate form promptly and would do business again if we are ever in need.
    Nathan T.
  • James was doing a job across the street and we asked him to come over for an estimate. We hired on the spot and were genuinely pleased with the quality and service we received. He worked fast and clean and on time. Very pleased with the outcome.
