Upgrade Your Home for Summer with a Motorized Screen

The summer months bring good weather and great times outdoors. How fabulous would it be to have an enclosed, shaded area to sit? Motorized screens make this option a possibility. If you’ve ever considered enclosing your porch, consider a motorized screen.

What Are Motorized Outdoor Screens?

Motorized screens are retractable shades for outdoor spaces. The retractable shades are controlled with a single button, allowing you to have an enclosed area with one simple step. Instead of enclosing an area permanently, the Houston Motorized Patio Shades can provide shade only when it’s desired. Many Texas homeowners install the screen on backyard patios, where the sun is constantly beating down. The screen shades the area, making it more comfortable for relaxation.

How Do Motorized Retractable Screens Operate?

Motorized retractable screen installation maintains the integrity of your home design. The screen tracks can be hidden from view or mounted on the existing structure. Most motorized retractable screens operate with a zipper-track system. The track system is a sleek design, offering protection from the tiniest insects. For those homes not suitable for the zipper track system, we offer a cable guided outdoor shade system. The look is similar but doesn’t provide protection from insects. For homeowners in areas without many insects, this doesn’t pose a problem.

Universal MotionScreen Options

Universal Screens’ MotionScreen is available in screen or vinyl materials, depending on the homeowner’s needs. The motorized retractable screen provides shade for an area while remaining see-through. Homeowners can enjoy an unobstructed view without overheating. These Houston motorized outdoor shades come in a variety of colors, including off-white, white, tan, champagne, brown, bronze, and black. Custom colors are also available. The patio shades are available with a variety of fabrics, from solar screen to vinyl.

The Vinyl motorized patio shades provides homeowners with a four-season option. The vinyl retractable screens are clear and solid, providing protection from all elements. Homeowners can then enjoy the outdoors but still have the comforts of heat or air conditioning. The vinyl is clear and provides unobstructed views.

Choosing Motorized Patio Shades

If you enjoy the Houston outdoors, now is the time to install a motorized patio shade manufactured by Universal Screens. The easy-to-use MotionScreen systems make your area more livable and comfortable. The annoying aspects of heat and bugs are missing, making your outdoor time more enjoyable. The outdoor shades also provide privacy from nosy neighbors, which is helpful if your home is in a crowded area.

MotionScreens are available for installation in garages, pergolas, and outdoor kitchens. You can maximize all Houston outdoor spaces by installing retractable solar screens to block the elements. Additionally, MotionScreens can help shade areas of the home to reduce energy costs. If your home has a side consistently hit with sunlight, the installation of a retractable screen will keep it cooler. Solar shades can block up to 90% of solar heat, making your home more energy efficient. When the weather is cooler, simply retract the screen with one button.

MotionScreen Availability

MotionScreen installation can occur at any time of year, but many Houston homeowners add the products during spring upgrades, in preparation for summer heat. If you’re considering upgrading to a motorized retractable screen, contact Texan Glass & Solar Control to explore the many options are available for your Houston home.
