Awesome product even better customer service
Nelson B.Verified Buyer
I had 6 windows made and the ones that I measured correctly fit wonderful. Unfortunately I miss measured 2 windows and they help me get the right size frame and screen no questions for next to nothing in cost. I will be getting all my solar screens form these guys. Thank you again!
Screen for loft window facing south
Leonard C.Verified Buyer
I usually put my evaporative cooler on in April. Because of the screen I haven't had to put my cooler on. Dimensions were spot on and fabric is see through during the day.
Greg T.Verified Buyer
The screen and frames worked perfectly!
John H.Verified Buyer
Great Product, and Solar Screen delivers as promised. Buddy was great to deal with from the first phone call. He was very helpful and answered all my questions and concerns. I ordered 7 screens in a period of 4 months and all screens came perfect and on time. On my last order Buddy even gave me a replacement piece that I damaged from a previous order at no cost. All the screens fit perfect as per the dimensions I ordered. My wife and I could not be happier with the results. I would highly recommend Solar Screen Outlet to family and friends in the future. Thanks for all the help.
Great product even better experience!
Brian T.Verified Buyer
Can’t say enough good things about how well the product works or how pleased we were with the process! Received order quickly, great customer service. Including the hand written work order was nice, we could connect our purchase to an actual person that prepared it for us. Thank you!
Love my screens
Elizabeth M.Verified Buyer
I'm so happy with my screens. Very easy to assemble be sure to follow the directions and helpful hints. After assembling the first screen I tried it on the window and found that it was 1/4" to long so I used my little hand held saw for metal and trimmed all the long pieces, easy fix, better too long than too short. The price was way better than the other place that wanted almost $200 just to ship. I live in Las Vegas and initially I tinted my windows, the solar screens work way better than the tint and they look just as good as my neighbors professionaly done screens. I highly recommend this company the price is right and the free shipping was the kicker. Thank you.
Very happy with this company
Valerie BVerified Buyer
I ordered the 90% for a bay window that gets full sun all day. The screens were easy to put together. I can see through the screen better than I thought I would and it really makes a difference in how hot the house gets. When I first unpacked the box I didn't see the spline so thought they hadn't sent it so I did an online chat with the company. They were so nice; apologized and said they'd send it right out. As I was on the chat I found the spline so it was my fault not theirs but I'm happy with how the they responded. Highly recommend the company and their products.
Valerie BVerified Buyer
The screen roller worked just like it should; made the job a lot easier.
Patrick S.Verified Buyer
I purchased 6 windows, shipping was fast and on time. Everything was neatly packaged and labeled based on size and the name i gave the item, very helpful for assembly. It took me a total of about 2.5 hours to assemble and hang all 6 screens and it looks amazing. Thank you i will be ordering my last 2 windows soon and order extra casement clips i lost two of them.
Thomas SVerified Buyer
Order arrived ahead of scheduled date and was well packaged. It remains to be seen how the 90% solar screen performs in Az but I'm optimistic. It was easy to assemble and install. Looks similar quality to what you could pick up frame wise at home depot for a lot less but you'd need to cut to size. Overall I'm satisfied with my purchase and would recommend these guys.
Jennifer B.Verified Buyer
Perfect fit! Gives privacy but plenty of light! Great job!
Screen and Frame
John V.Verified Buyer
First of all Buddy who works for the company was a great help, and very patient with all my questions and concerns. The product came fast and was very good quality as described. I am very happy and planning on ordering screen kits for 6 more windows in the next 3 months.
Michelle L.Verified Buyer
It actually helps the house to be cooler! It was easy to install and looks nice outside our windows. Looking forward to order more for the rest of our windows for next summer. Thank you and great customer service too!
Solar screen installation
Charmaine G.Verified Buyer
I bought our solar screens for the french doors in our home & everything arrived quickly. It was simple enough to put together & really helps keep the sun & heat out of the house. Pricing for everything was very good. It also keeps the birds from killing themselves because the glass reflected back the trees & sky. Now, no bird strikes ever! Very pleased.
Easy to assemble and install
Janet C.Verified Reviewer
Watch the (great) videos to decide which installation methods are best for your home, and how to measure. Have someone double-check your dimensions and order. I did buy the samples set and it made choosing colors easy. Shipping was fast. Watch assembly and installation videos and you’ll have professional screens at a fantastic price! Seriously!
Renae C.Verified Reviewer
I would definitely use this company again if the need should arise. Quality materials and excellent customer service.
I love these screens
John A.Verified Reviewer
Very good value and very effective. Glad that kits are available! I've installed 80% and 90% solar screens on my home. Huge improvement!!!! Love these!!!
90% Solar screening
Vanda K.Verified Buyer
I received the screening 2 days prior to the original delivery date. The screening was exactly as decribed and does a great job blocking the afternoon sun on my porch.

Steven F.Verified Buyer
The kit was easy to assemble and install. The only tools I needed were a hammer and the screen installation roller. I plan on purchasing more soon for other windows on my home!
Love these screens

Easy assembly and install. Made a huge difference in how hot the house gets.

Love them. Wish I had ordered them years ago. Shipping was very fast. Ordered them at the beginning of the week, had them by the end of the week. Would highly recommend them.

The screen really darkened my door.
Diane C.Verified Buyer
Just what we needed.
Nice product looks as good
Russell C.Verified Buyer
Nice product looks as good as the ones my neighbors paid hundreds more for.
Ken O.Verified Buyer
My purchase came with the wrong type of clips. A type that I couldn't even find on your website. BUT your customer service was excellent, sending me the proper ones. Someone needs to be a bit more careful putting orders together since there were 4 or the right type mixed in with 12 weird ones I couldn't use...My other suggestion would be to give your customers a bit more screen material. Just a teensy bit larger.
Excellent product and customer service
Linus J.Verified Buyer
As a renter I needed some non permanent patio slider and bedroom window sun protection. The solar fabric, fasteners, and Buddy’s quick responses to my questions were top notch!
Best way to go!
Ira R.Verified Buyer
Fast service, quality product, easy installation. Looks great. Take that to all you screen companies that wouldn’t service my home 40 miles north of Las Vegas, NV. Would buy again in a heartbeat.
Good quality product.
James B.Verified Buyer
Good quality product.
Much cooler house!
Johnathan R.Verified Buyer
Well, takes time to assemble but it’s worth it. Did some testing on windows to compare them. Both windows were facing the sun. Out air temp was 94. I measured the temp about an inch behind the windows. The window without a screen was 91 degrees the window with a screen was 81! That’s a huge differences! During the evening time those two rooms are always hot compared to the rest of the house now they are just as cool! Only knock I have is they are pretty dark so I’d recommend the 80 percent stuff in your living room and kitchen and such.

Good quality, was easy to put together. Really quick delivery ( within 1 week). Nice communication with them on my questions. A good group of people to buy from
Truly Amazing for keeping cool
Joe S.Verified Buyer
I originally ordered for 1 window to get rid of sun reflection on my turf. I ended up ordering one for another room in the house that has southern Arizona exposure. I am completely surprised at how much cooler that room stays. Also, installing was a very easy with the instruction videos on your site. Everything was shipped very fast and in immaculate condition. Solar Screen Outlet is A++! I will be ordering more for the rest of the house.
DIY solar screens
Phil A.Verified Buyer
These assemble very easily and look great on the windows. The 3M duo lock is a very convenient way to mount them as well.
This is my second order.
Tim V.Verified Buyer
This is my second order in a week or so. I am very happy with your product and level of service. The product fits just as measured and looks great. Thanks for being a great company to do business with.
Great product, great service
Tim A.Verified Buyer
It’s nice to come across a company that makes fixing a problem so easy and affordable. I am very happy with the performance and look of the product. Thanks!
First solar screen DIY
Rodney H.Verified Buyer
The most difficult task is putting the frame together. Once the frame is set, apply the screen and spline is easy. Will order more solar screen kits soon.
Perfect screen company
Greg D.Verified Buyer
Called and telked to them over phone, confirmed what I needed and I ordered them. came in one box, easy to put together and install.
Pre cut solar screen
Jimmy HVerified Buyer
Everything arrived sooner than anticipated, screen framing was cut exact and enough over hang on screen to cover.
Joseph YVerified Buyer
All I can say is WOW I saved a bunch of money here and they are easy to put together. The YouTube you have is great!!!
William WVerified Buyer
the order came on time, all the parts are numbered. the kit is easy to do--- great savings thanks.
love the diy and $/effort value
Teri GVerified Buyer
easy except that instructions for cross bar could have been included in the main video. waiting to see if it really makes difference on temp inside. Saved big bucks!!
I bought some 80% and
Linda BVerified Buyer
I bought some 80% and 90 % but I could not tell which was whcih. you should have marked them on the screen. I do need more of the 3m tapes. Can you send them to me All I got was the package that said 96 on them. I need another pack of 96
Celeste OVerified Buyer
Fast service. After receiving samples I placed an order.
Everything was perfect!
Chris C.Verified Buyer
Everything was perfect!
Excellent experience. More to come.
David H.Verified Buyer
My order was delivered in two days. Everything assembled easily and fit perfectly in the windows. The screen fabric is much thicker than normal insect screens, so it does require more force to get the spline installed. The brick clips are a great way to install the screens. I only ordered enough for the east side of the house to take care of the morning sun and to try them out. I will be ordering more soon to do the rest of the house. An excellent experience.
Simple to put together, really
Mark O.Verified Buyer
Simple to put together, really like the 90 percent, can still see out, just installed 4-29-17, great product

Jodie C.Verified Buyer
I was very satisfied when I received my pre cut screens. I put them together which was very easy and mounted them on my windows and love the outcome.
Pam GVerified Buyer
these are the best !!!!!
Georgina P.Verified Buyer
Once I put one together the rest were a breeze!! High quality, delivered on time, and the customer service they provided was awesome (had to call prior to purchasing to determine which attachment type would work best for my windows). Highly recommend!
Thomas F.Verified Buyer
Great website. Very informative and easy to use. Requested sample a had them in no time. Followed the measuring directions and had my screens for our sliding door two days later. Fit was perfect and installation was a breeze. The Velcro fasteners worked well. The screens work very effectively and look terrific both inside and out. The whole purchasing experience was excellent and I would highly recommend to anyone trying to solve a sun problem.
Best home improvement purchase ever!
Renee NVerified Buyer
I just wanted you to know how fantastic my new Solar Screens are, but first let me say this, I received them so fast. This has to be one of the best purchases I have made to block out the heat of the desert sun. They work great! They let in light and block out so much of the heat. I put them up on the inside with the suction cups, so easy. Each one is exactly perfect and the edges are somehow finished. Wow don't know how you do it but thanks so much for such a great product and matching service!
Roland L.Verified Buyer
Received the solar screen in a timely manner. A lot cheaper than having someone locally install them. Didn't come with instructions but figured how to install them. The only problem that I had was that when I stretched the screen over the frame, it cause the frame to bow a little. Maybe if it came with instruction, this wouldn't have happen. I'm still satisfied with the product
Brian H.Verified Buyer
very high quality material and good prices.
Brick Clips from Solar Screen Outlet
William R.Verified Buyer
Great price, fast shipping, very good quality. Thanks.
Great Looking Screen
Gary SVerified Buyer
Fairly easy putting it together. I'm happy with the way it looks up on my door, and it does block the suns heat. I can't say enough about the great service I've received when I needed help. And the super fast shipping. Would buy again.
Mike B.Verified Buyer
Good quality frame and screen. It looks nice and blocks the sun's heat on my south facing windows. However the ends where they were cut were bent making it hard to insert the angles and the crossbar clips. Also the service is good since I asked for screws to convert from Velcro and they were sent right away.

Simple installation! We had fun
Amelia B.Verified Buyer
Simple installation! We had fun putting the screens together but couldn't figure out how to get the crossbars on. So, that part was just a waste of money. Read the instructions before buying! Nonetheless, we are enjoying the cooler house in this desert heat.
Bob HVerified Reviewer
Ordered my solar screen kits for two windows and received them by Priority mail shipment just days later. We selected the 80% material, stucco color and tan frame, a nice color combination. I laid out the frames on the garage floor (did not have large enough table) and tapped them down after squaring them up. Then just followed the video on solaroutlet.com website and presto, two large screens assembled in under 2 hours. The screens were perfectly cut to my specifications and the savings over ordering from other companies was significant. Screens look great !!
Solar Screens with frames
Melissa WVerified Buyer
I live in a concrete block house with single pane aluminum windows in Florida. he front and 2 sides of my house are in sunlight for many hours. I wanted something to reduce the heat and still allow air flow. I also wanted something that was reasonably priced and looked good. The solar screens were the answer. I ordered 3 the first time to try them on the sides of the house. As soon as I put them up, both neighbors were raving about how good they looked. I ordered the screens needed for the front to finish off the house. It looks great, provides privacy and hides the ugly aluminum frames. I couldn't be happier and would highly recommend Solar Screen Outlet to everyone. Product arrived quickly, was perfect size, and was easy to assemble and mount. Web site videos are great for measuring and product selection.

SolarScreenOutlet: High quality screens + Excellent Customer support = Reasonable Price
Felix HVerified Buyer
Searching for DIY solar screen for my 4 huge windows and, luckily, find SolarScreenOutlet. After several emails with the customer service, I decided to place my order of 2x59x59 and 2x71x65 windows. It arrived within 3 days. The first window was a challenge for me but I managed to complete it in 2 hours. The minute I had installed my first window, the temperature of the room that receives afternoon sun lights in Phoenix quickly drops to a pleasant level. No longer I will have to turn on A/C in the afternoon after work. If you really need high quality plus excellent customer service at an affordable price and are willing to spend a day to assemble your solar screen windows, Solar Screen Outlet should be on your list.
Solar Screen Kits
Michael MVerified Buyer
I ordered 8 window kits online using the measuring instructions from the website. The windows were shipped and arrived the next day. The assembly process was simple as all parts were cut to the correct sizes. The screens fit nicely and are doing their job keeping the Texas sun out of the west side of my home. I used brick clips for some windows and casement hardware for others and they made installation go quickly. I would highly recommend the screen kits, the website was truthful and helpful.
Philip C.Verified Buyer
Ordering was easy and the You Tube video was very helpful. Although I have made screens before this was good material and easy to work with. I will be ordering a second kit very soon. Next will be 80%. 90% is pretty dark! The 3M tabs proved a little tricky but I also had to reach my window from a hill. Its best to have a helper. Secondly and most important. Leave your screen in your window if you are using the 3M tabs. There will be a gap and flying bugs etc. can get in. Enjoy!
Philip C.Verified Buyer
I purchased this (Screen roller tool) because it looked sturdy. I have used a plastic one in the past and it was very flimsy! This was comfortable in my hand and rolled evenly in the tracks.
Christopher DVerified Buyer
This was my second purchase and things went much smoother than the first. Always measure correctly.
Michael SVerified Buyer
This screen is easy to put together. I couldn't find a way to install the crossbars I ordered, so I skipped that part and it looks fine without. My only issue with the screen is that I cannot see out of it almost at all. I will be ordering more, but will drop to the 80% instead. This stuff is worth it's money, especially if you have large west facing Windows!
Loretta BVerified Buyer
good materials good kits effective
Alden HVerified Buyer
i bought the 80% kits for sun room just air conditioned. the morning direct sun was still making the room too warm and the 8 large panel solar screens block/reflect sufficient heat the a/c now controls the room. Due to the limited hours of exposure and maximum effect of screens are against the direct sun and not ambient outside temps, we calculated the 80% would do the job with less visual interference and we were right. A second purchase was for a family members home which has solar glass reflecting the south and western sun onto two areas of vinyl siding with the heat severely deforming the siding. 6 screen kits covering the suspect windows should protect the repaired siding from future solar heating. the ordering was simple, kits complete and accurately measured for custom fit. Videos were vital and helpful but did assume a greater knowledge or experience than I possessed and such things as screen alignment and tension were troubling to me but they worked. And Buddy was with me every step via email, answered each inquiry, helped analyse my project and provided overall great support. I recommend these products and this company.
Good Decision. VERY Good Decision
I ordered these on Friday evening, and was contacted Saturday that my order was finished and was being shipped! Less than 24 hours! I ordered the Stucco color. I'm so glad I did. It's actually light beige and exactly what I wanted. These were so easy to put up. There are two things to know: Don't be afraid to order more fasteners than you think you'll need. They're inexpensive and you'll have them if you need them. Also, if you have two same size windows, measure both anyway, because chances are, they'll be different. All in all, this was a great bargain. They're blocking the afternoon sun so the room is cooler. Perfect!
Frames were sent the wrong size
Humberto OVerified Reviewer
I ordered solar screens from these guys 3 times. The first order was sent at the right size, and the second two orders were cut at the wrong size. Good quality materials, but wrong cuts create more work for the customer.
Windows inside my RV
William H.Verified Reviewer
I put the fabric inside and over the windows in my rv here in Arizona and it made a big difference in the temperature. It works great !
Great screen clips
Ismael R.Verified Reviewer
I recently ordered brick clips from two different companies and found that these Brick Clips were made with heavier gauge metal than competitors. I am very satisfied on well they keep in my solar screens. Great product!
RONALD H.Verified Reviewer
Very difficult to roll in due to the 90% screen thickness and toughness even by someone like me who has done screen before and has a really good roller. Had to do de-burring on all frame ends - not my job, should have been done by SSO - and one screen panel had a blemish unnoticed until installation; should have bee inspected at SSO. Also, expected mitered corners, not square, but still looks very good.
Michael SVerified Buyer
These screens really do the trick for the rooms I want cooler and darker. The 90% is very hard to see out of, so if I could go back, I'd select the 80%.

It was the second shipment

It was the second shipment that I got that was opened upon delivery. So I have to guess that you just don't package your shipments well enough. Luckily this time nothing was missing. I do like your product though
Solar screens work and good customer service
Anne J. Verified Buyer
I really like my new screens. My bedroom is so much cooler than it was last summer. Now I can do away with the dusty blinds and just use sheer curtains. They were pretty easy to put together and I had no problems with the measurements. Finished screens fit almost perfectly. Will be ordering more for the kitchen.

John T. Verified Buyer
I followed the instructions for measuring the window my two brick windows but the finished screens are 3/4 of an inch narrower than the open. There is a gap along the side of both screens which looks terrible on the front of the house. NOT happy with finished product.
Michael B. Verified Buyer
Easy to assemble, just a little time consuming. Spline rolling tool a must for assembly. Happy with purchase.
Pamela M. Verified Buyer
Received in a very timely manner. Quality of the screen fabric is good.
Awesome Customer Service
John M. Verified Buyer
Great, friendly service!
Very Nice Product
Mark J. Verified Buyer
Purchased screens for 7 windows. Was able to build and install all of them in one day. They look really great from the outside and provide privacy unless you get right up on them. From the inside they definately allow less sunlight and the front room, which faces west, is noticeably cooler. I had a few questions prior to purchase and they were answered within 24 hours by the Boss. Screens shipped in a few days and arrived neatly boxed. The hardest part was unpacking all the materials. I would highly recommend Solar Screen Outlet.

Screen malt and frames were excellent material and easy to assemble
Very Nice Product
Mark J. Verified Buyer
Wooden handle roller is much better then the plastic ones you get at hardware stores.
Ryan F. Verified Buyer
I was very happy with my recent purchase, and thought the whole experience was excellent.
Would prefer they come pre-assembled.
Christopher H. Verified Buyer
Assembly is difficult if you want the screen to be stretched tight so there are no waves or bubbles and the frame be square so it fits in your measurements. I would have gladly paid extra for it to come assembled. Quality seems good but just not seeing how the average person is expected to properly install the screen to the frame. Seems easy enough right? Not really. You'll see what I'm talking about.
Bob Z. Verified Buyer
Three 24x48 windows - dark black - has to trim an 8th inch off the vertical. But the overall fit was perfect. Didn’t use the brick clips. Industrial Velcro instead.
All parts were cut perfectly
