5.0 out of 5 stars I can enjoy my deck!, May 24, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Coolaroo Premier Window Sun Shade 8 Feet Wide by 6 Feet High, Desert Sand (Lawn & Patio)
This sun shade is just what I was looking for in order to enjoy sitting outside on my deck. I live in an upper unit of a condo complex that faces West so I get the full heat of the afternoon sun. Since the association cut down the tree that used to provide shade, sitting outside during summer evenings was unpleasant! Not anymore! The shade blocks a great deal of the sun while still allowing light through. Plus, I can see through it -- to still enjoy the blue sky or see what's happening around me. Plus, it is going to keep my living room cooler as well. I love the color, too. It looks great against the deck without sticking out like a sore thumb!

The shade was easy to install and I'm no handyman (I will admit it took me longer than the "20 minutes" the directions said it would take). I just needed a neighbor to help me lift it into the brackets I mounted on the ceiling of the deck as the shade is 8 feet wide and I couldn't hold it, insert it into the brackets and tighten the screws at the same time by myself. You can also make a couple simple adjustments to the internal mechanisms in order to change the side the chain hangs down and to install it to the "ceiling." (the directions are clear) The chain also has a mechanism that can be screwed to a beam -- to prevent it from blowing and, more importantly, to make sure it can't become a "hanging hazard" to a toddler or young child. Even more -- there are two optional "eyes" you can insert along the bottom of the shade -- attach a couple hooks to the deck and the bottom of the shade can be anchored to prevent flapping in the wind and to keep it out of the way. I am THRILLED with this purchase!!!
