Exceptional Heat Protection For Homes in Dallas-Fort Worth, TX, and the Surrounding Areas

Blinds and curtains can only do so much to protect your home from the hottest days in Dallas-Fort Worth and nearby areas. More often than not, such accessories block the view of the outdoors and still allow sun rays to enter your place. If you’re looking for the ultimate shade to protect your home from heat transfer, you’ll need a more effective sun shading solution. That’s where we come in.

You will definitely notice the impact our solar screens have on the heat that enters your Dallas-Fort Worth area home. We design our system to stop 95% of unwanted solar heat before it enters your home or business. Save on unreasonable energy bills and enjoy the coolness of your home with our efficient solar screens in Dallas and Fort Worth.


Different Fabrics To Choose From 

Our most popularly used solar screen fabric options can be found in 5 and 10 percent openness. Based on the openness, they provide 95% and 90% sun protection. Thanks to the darker color of our fabrics, the heat and excess light are absorbed before it passes through. More absorption results in more protection, as well as a clearer view with less glare. Our fabrics come in two main styles: Natte and Satine. Natte offers a standard 2x2 basketweave pattern, while Satine offers a unique and decorative twill weave pattern.

Automation & Motorization

Solar screens are typically controlled with a motor using a built-in radio receiver. With one touch of the transmitter, you can lower, stop, and raise your sun screens. A transmitter can operate each screen one by one, or as a group. Our remotes are the best choice for flexibility in regards to upgrades and integration. 


Square Handheld Radio Remote

Our magnetic wall-mounted base allows you to conveniently store your remote at all times. 

Our remotes are available in both single or 15-channel. With single-channel remotes, you can control one screen or one group of screens. 15-channel remotes can control up to 15 screens, separately or all at once. 


Radio Wall Switch

Our wall switches are also available in single or 15-channel control options. Control one screen or 15 at a time with our wall switch. Our wall switch also includes a master channel, allowing you to control everything at the same time. You can use our wall switch with both the Hub Connector and the accompanying mobile app. 


Hub Connector

You can program our Hub Connector to operate your retractable screens. With the Connector app, you can operate the radio transmitter motor individually or as a group, even when you’re not at home. Our Hub Connector is a great choice for the smart home with easy integration options with Alexa and Google Home. 


The Connector Mobile App

We offer a free app that allows you to control your solar screens from your phone. With the app, you can create different scenes for how you’d like to use your screens, including a timing function for operations at times set by you. Alexa can also control your retractable patio screens for you with our app. 


LiTouch Safety Drive

Our patio screen is reliable due to the all-new LiTouch Safety Drive. With the LiTouch Safety Drive, your screens can travel down without concern regarding obstacles and resistance. Our specialized system will stop if any resistance is encountered, and will continue to move down when free. 


Tucson Adjustable Bottom Bar

The Tucson Adjustable Bottom bar is the easy solution for most patios that sit on a slope. With the Tucson Adjustable Bottom Bar, your screen can sit flat, ensuring complete coverage for your sloped outdoor area. Our adjustable bottom bar automatically adjusts to the slope, and seamlessly returns to level once retracted.

Great local family owned DFW business. They took the time to show us amazing options and demonstrated onsite functionality that ultimately set them apart from the competition and earned our business. The solar screens are beautiful and block out the western sun completely. We are so pleased we are going to have them install indoor shades to darken the bedrooms.
Bob P.
I would absolutely recommend Blinds Brothers. First of all, they are a locally owned family business that is great to support. They were professional, trustworthy, and got the job done. They do high-quality work and I’m extremely happy with the results.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of motorized exterior shades?

Exterior shades can keep your home cool by blocking out heat; reduce glare by controlling the amount of sunlight that enters; and protect your home from insects. As an added bonus, you can even save money on energy bills with exterior screens that protect your home from heat.

Which exterior screens are best for my home?

Blinds Brothers is proud to offer Tucson Rolling Shutters' exterior screens, such as Solution Screens, Solution Xtreme, and Cable-Guided Solar Screens. During our initial consultation, we'll take precise measurements of your windows, door, and patios to recommend the exterior screen that may be best for your home.

Can exterior shades be motorized?

Yes, our exterior shades can be motorized, remote-controlled, and even connected to your smartphone so you can open and close your screens even when you're away from home.

How much do motorized exterior shades cost?

The cost of your motorized exterior shades will depend on the size and number of windows you're aiming to cover. For a free estimate, contact Blinds Brothers.

Will solar screens block my outside view? 

Solar screens from the Blinds Brothers offer full visibility, similar to looking through a standard window screen. Don’t worry if you’ll be able to keep an eye on the kids in the pool or the barbecue with a solar screen, as you’ll have no problem seeing the area beyond the screen.

Will people be able to see into my house?

That’s the beauty of solar screens — while your view outside is unobstructed, it blocks outsiders from seeing in during the day.

Do solar screens reduce fading caused by the sun?

Yes! Many of our customers choose solar screens for their patios and porches to protect their expensive outdoor furniture. Whether it’s fabric or wicker, solar screens can stop them from fading entirely, helping exterior furniture keep its like-new appearance for a longer amount of time.

How long do solar screens last?

When shopping with the Blinds Brothers, you can expect your solar screens to last up to 10 years.

Will solar screens darken my home?

Solar screens will make it slightly darker in the room or area of a home they are installed in front of. They should not be thought of as “room darkening” though, similar to something like a blackout shade or rolling shutter. Still, there will be a noticeable difference in the brightness of a room after a solar screen is installed.

What areas are served by Blinds Brothers?

Blinds Brothers serves Fort Worth, Dallas, and the overall surrounding DFW metro area. If you're not sure if we service your area, give us a call or contact us online today and we'll let you know.
