What are Solar Screens?
Solar screens are designed to shade windows and patios to provide a cooler environment away from the sun and add more privacy to your home. They also serve as a transparent barrier between you and the outside. This means that you are protected from harmful UV rays and insects, while still being able to enjoy the fresh air. Solar screens, or roll screens, are a great way to protect patios, porches, decks, and more. Our solar privacy screens ensure you can enjoy your space all year long. Our screens really work!
We also offer commercial solar screens for business use. Installing solar screens can save on energy costs and are great for your business or your home!
Are Solar Screens and Retractable Screens the Same Thing?
At Marygrove, they are!
Whether you are looking for custom solar screens for a patio, a window screen for more shade, or a retractable screen just for ease of use, they are all made out of the same materials and utilize the same functions. So although they have different names, you can rest assured that you are getting the custom window screen you need through Marygrove.
About Marygrove Solar Screens
Our window shades provide excellent outdoor shade and privacy for your home. Adding one blocks harmful UV rays from the sun and helps prevent your furniture, drapes, blinds, carpets, and rugs from fading. Not to mention, they also are great at reducing glare and can act as a bug screen, keeping spiders, insects, and other creatures out of your home. Also known as motorized retractable sunshades, our custom solar screens are easy to use.
Our shades are operated with the click of a button, making for simple and easy adjustment for anyone of any age.
In addition to providing excellent shade, our solar screen panels are made using the latest green technology. They are also completely customizable. Our design experts will work with you to create a solar shade that fits perfectly to your window, providing an energy-efficient window solution to reduce glare and save on energy bills.
Advantages of Solar Screens
1. Completely Customizable
At Marygrove, our design experts are more than happy to work with you to create a solar screen that perfectly fits your windows and openings. Our team will walk you through the process from start to end, listening to your needs and suggesting the best options for you.
2. Protect Your Furniture
Thanks to our PVC coated fiberglass properties a Marygrove solar screen is designed to block UV rays that could fade your interior furnishings and even your carpet if exposed for too long. Our solar screen panels offer you privacy and comfort, while still providing clear visibility.
3. Take In The View
Exterior screens are traditionally cumbersome and block the view of your beautiful yard, are hard to remove, and don’t last as long as the more modern options. However, they are still necessary to help eliminate pests and prevent sun damage. Solar screens or solar shades eliminate all of these disadvantages.
If you don’t want to see them when your windows are closed, simply adjust your own screens up or down with one hand. They are perfectly discreet when rolled up and our window screens will outlast traditional screens because they do not have to endure the weather year-round.
4. Operate With Ease
Marygrove solar screen panels are easy for anyone to operate. No longer do you have to deal with bulky window screens, with the click of a button you can roll them right up.
5. Say Goodbye to Bugs
Every solar screen is designed with a mesh fabric, woven in a grid pattern, stopping all bugs from entering. No longer will you have to worry about being eaten alive sitting outside later in the evening. Learn more about our bug screens here.
6. Protecting The Environment
Our PVC fiberglass fabric is incredibly energy proficient because of its ability to counter hot and cold weather. This could ultimately lead to lower heating and cooling bills due to our solar screens. Also, fiberglass is well known for being durable and built to last for decades, resulting in less waste for landfills.
How a Retractable Solar Screen Works
Once your solar screens are installed, you will find them extremely easy to use. Simply point and click the remote to see your shades ascend and descend on their own.
Our friendly team will ensure that you are familiar with the functions of your solar screens prior to leaving the install and we are always more than happy to answer any questions afterward.

Our retractable solar screens will not have to be cleaned near as often as traditional screens do, simply because they won’t have to endure the elements every day of every year.
Here’s how to clean them: begin by brushing off the easy stuff with a microfiber towel. Then, gently run water over them with a hose to get the excess dirt and mix some water with an all-purpose cleaner and lightly scrub with a sponge. Do not use a power washer!
Lastly, rinse and repeat until they are really clean, and lightly dab them on a towel to let them dry.

When traditional solar screens for windows, doors or other structures are properly installed, you can expect them to last about 10 years or more. A solar screen is capable of lasting up to 30 years as long as they are taken care of properly and rolled up when not in use.
They do! Just ask our many happy customers! Our screens are great at preventing glare and work extra hard to block the heat. It’s estimated that they can block 65% to 90% of heat from entering your home. That’s a huge cost savings on the AC bill!
