The best way to install Solar Screens depends on the application. Our highly trained technicians will know how, best, to make your Solar Screens for a perfect fit and installation. Most of the time this includes using die-cast barrel clips. These clips come color matched to the frame to blend in. These clips are perfect for Solar Screens because they allow for easy tool-less removal and re-installation of Solar Screens by the homeowner for cleaning. Be wary of unlicensed people installing Solar Screens: water intrusion, window warranty issues and ill-fitting Solar Screens are some of the things we’ve seen in the field when un-licensed people are hired to do this work. Be sure to check for a contractor’s license and insurance anytime you are having someone do work on your home!
Solar screen is available in multiple colors (black, brown, grey, stucco and beige) and also available in varying weave densities. An 80% weave blocks 80% of the UV rays. At Mike’s Mobile Screens we usually recommend using an 80% weave on most residential applications. You will still get a nice breeze through the screen and retain great outward visibility. A 80% solar screen cuts the heat and glare without darkening the inside of your home. Our 90% weave is great for picture windows (windows that don’t open). We also recommend 90% when you have direct sunlight (such as when we are covering a skylight). Although 90% will not completely block out light it is useful for people who sleep during the day and want something to drastically cut the light coming into their home.
Actually Solar Screens are an efficient way to add another insulation barrier between your windows (the leading areas of heat transfer) and the elements. Solar screens, in an 80% grade, cut harsh UV rays still present in winter without cutting natural visible light. These UV rays in the winter can still fade carpet and furniture. Solar Screens make your home more efficient, regardless of the season and save you energy and money!
Can Solar Screens last longer than any other part of your home? Absolutely! Mike’s Mobile uses the highest quality materials, and has the best Solar Screen warranty in the industry – 10 years!

Solar Screens with grids are a great way to spruce up the look of your home. One thing to note, however, is if your home already has windows with grids and you have us install Solar Screens with grids then your windows may look busy from the inside looking out. From some angles you may see both sets of grids. If you don’t want a grid pattern we would recommend at least one bar going across the middle (we call it a spreader bar) that matches the separation in the middle of your window.
The simple answer is that Solar Screens stop the sun’s rays before they ever have a chance to reach your window. In contrast, window tint goes on the inside of the window, actually working against nicer insulated windows (some window tinting can actually void warranties on dual or triple paned windows due to the overheating possibilities). The same goes for all blinds and interior window coverings. Your window will still heat up and radiant heat will still heat up your home. Solar Screens work with your windows to keep the heat out and act as another insulation barrier making your home more efficient, more comfortable and saving you money. Mike’s Mobile Screens offers the highest quality Solar Screen materials available that block 80-90% of the sun’s UV rays.
