30 solar screen Dripping Screens, Texas installation

In Dripping Springs, Texas off of Bell Springs Road, we did this 30 solar screen Dripping Screens, Texas installation of which we installed 30 solar screens. We did not put solar screens on every window of this home.

We did upgrade 13 of the solar screens to the 90 percent fabric. The 13 solar screens that we upgraded to the 90 percent fabric are on the front of the home. This customer, being in the country, he was not too worried about the aesthetic appearance of his home.

Read what so many others have had to say about their solar screen installations here.

What he was worried about was that he wanted to keep the sun out of those front windows. He said the front of his home just got blasted by the afternoon sun. He even had us put solar screens on his front wood doors.

You can see by these pictures, you’re going to see those are two half arched, 90 percent solar screens that we built for his wood doors. It is very important that when you build a solar screen and install a solar screen on a wood door that you use wood screws.

I can’t tell you how many installations I have been to whereby installers have put tech screws. Those are screws that are made for metal. They’re made for cutting into metal. They’re not made for wood. I have seen so many installations where customers have put the tech screws. What happens is, over time, those tech screws will come out.

The reason is that the hole that was bored into the wood was not properly done with a wood screw. Therefore, the screw is not in there tightly. There is a hole that’s bored out with the tip of the tech screw creating a big hole so that the thread of the remainder of the screw can fit into that hole.

It’s not the right way to put anything into wood. There’s a reason why there are metal screws, tech screws, and wood screws. We use wood screws only when adhering solar screens to the wood doors or any kind of wood. It’s very important.

You’ll see here on the front of this home the customer did not put screens on his half circles over those four front windows. I don’t think it works very good this way, but the customer was happy with it. He said he was deep out in the country and he really didn’t care. He wanted to save on some of the cost, so he chose to not put solar screens on those windows.

Also, on the windows to the left of the home, you will see that he’s got, it’s not really a half circle, but it’s an elongated arched window over two rectangular windows there. He chose to not put a solar screen on that window either. Nevertheless, he put solar screens on all the other windows of the home to include his back patio door, which was really nice to see.
