Roll-Up Solar Shade-4'W x 6'L 4.6 5 191 191
love the shades! this looks and feels like an excellent product, however, they are for our beach house and we have not been there since i received my order. we are so anxious to install and enjoy them! July 23, 2014
easy to install. really keeps the sun out. for years i have been looking for shades for my porch that let you see through them. these are perfect. July 23, 2014
Very nice looking I ordered two of the roll up solar shades. We put the first one up and and no problems, it looked nice. We weren't able to put up the second one until today and realized that the tabs at the bottom (to fasten it down) were missing. I haven't contacted Improvements yet but I feel certain they will send us the needed parts. I'm going to order one more. They are very attractive. July 12, 2014
Nice produce...average mechanical performance Overall, I like the appearance of the shade...color, fabric, etc. It was not difficult to install and is easy to raise and lower...and, it provides the shade that we were looking for. However, it is apparently not fitted squarely on the roller so that when it is fully retracted (rolled up) it is not even all the way across. That is, one end hangs down about 3 inches below the other end. When fully extended there is about an inch to inch and a half difference in the length (above the patio floor). When rolling up onto the roller it rolls straight until about the last 2 1/2 to 2 feet and then it stops rolling straight. It is unsightly when fully retracted onto the roller and looks like a cheap imitation of a quality roll up/down sun shade. I sent a note to customer service that I am not happy with it and would like to have it replaced. July 11, 2014

How much privacy?

Can you easily see through the screen from the outside if you're more than 20 feet away? We're looking for some privacy as well as sun shielding.

Thanks in advance.

Answer: 
You can see through your shade from the inside out. But No if your neighbor was looking in you cannot see through the shade into your house.

Answer: 
Yes, that's where we installed our shade. See the installation directions (on the Improvements website in the product description). Just a few screws were needed.

Thank you for your question. The type of hardware needed depends on the material and construction of your soffit. We recommend consulting a professional or your local hardware store for assistance.

Answer: 
Yes. I use this material for inside shades in my dining room. When the 72 in. width began to bow after several years, I cut the shade in half and now deal with two 36 inch shades more easily.
The material was easily cut with sharp shears and did not curl on the edges.

Thank you for your question. Although we don't recommend it, you can cut the Solar Shade tubing and material to size. Please note that the shade will have unfinished ends that can be repaired by a professional sewer.

What is the exact width of the 4' wide screen without any hardware? Same question including the hardware? Do you recommend moving the shades indoors during the winter months to increase longevity? I live in Seattle and we have mild winters.

Answer: 
The fabric width is 69 1/2". The overall installed width with hardware is 72". I would suggest that you take the fabric inside during the winter as this would definitely prolong the life of the fabric and it is not difficult to remove the roller from the hardware.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. The Roll-up Solar Shade (4’W x 6’L) fabric width is 46.10”, the screw-to-screw measurement is 46.65” and the total width installed is 48”. The shades can be left up year round, but taking them down for the winter may increase their life span.
