In Las Vegas, there are several reasons you may decide to install solar screens. During the winter, they add a layer of insulation, helping you save energy when the Santa Ana winds come howling through Southern Nevada. During the summer, they not only help keep the desert sun from scorching furniture, houseplants and fabrics, but they also reduce the amount of heat that enters your home.
Exterior sunscreens offer daytime privacy year-round without blocking your view. At Eclipse Solar Screens we can help you save on energy costs year-round with custom-fit sunscreens made in the USA by Phifer.
Solar Screen Costs
Now that we’ve rung in the new year, you may be looking forward to a tax refund in 2020 and wonder, “How much do solar screens cost?” With the benefits they offer in every season, they can pay for themselves relatively quickly. Unlike other updates you may give your home, such as painting the exterior, you don’t need to cover every window or have them all installed at the same time.

Whether you have round, starburst, arched or some other shape, we can create a solar screen that fits it perfectly.
Sunscreen Cost Factors
There are a variety of factors that can affect the cost of solar screens.
You can choose either 80% or 90% sunscreen fabric. Although 90% costs a bit more, it provides better protection for your interior. This tighter weave is ideal for south and west-facing windows.
Since more Microban™ fabric is used for larger windows, they typically cost more than smaller windows. Generally, the cost is calculated per square foot.
Solar screen frames are heavier than regular frames. In most cases, you can choose to have just the exterior framed, or it can mimic the style of your current windows, from multipaned and double-hung to casement-style windows. Exterior sunscreens that cover large picture windows may require a heavy-duty frame. Due to the size, more fasteners are used to ensure they stay flush against the house and can withstand the dust devils and 60 mph gusts that sweep across the Las Vegas Valley.
