Outdoor curtains and roller shades offer patio shade on demand as well as shelter from wind and cold during winter months. Privacy and reduced cooling costs in the summer are added benefits. For all practical purposes, installing patio shades is like adding another room to your home or business – without the expense of remodeling. Choose from roller shades, outdoor curtains, decorative patio drapes and fixed enclosure panels. Roller shades may be manual or motorized and are designed to also function as exterior window shades.
