Exterior Motorized Shade Applications

One of the best things about motorized screens is their versatility. Install them in any of your exterior spaces, including:

  • Screened porches or patios. Instantly create privacy and shade on your outdoor patio by installing Atlanta porch shades. A stationary screen may offer protection, but it also prevents you from enjoying the outdoors to the fullest. With a retractable shade, you can enjoy the best of both worlds with the click of a button
     
  • Garage doors. We often do home improvement projects in the garage that require ventilation. An Atlanta motorized garage screen door allows you to complete all your outdoor projects with adequate airflow while keeping pests outside where they belong.
     
  • Privacy screens. A retractable screen can help you enjoy the great outdoors while retaining some of your privacy. Enjoy a soak in your hot tub or read a book in the outdoors uninterrupted. When you’re ready, simply click a button to open up to the world again.
     
  • Your four seasons room. A motorized screen allows you to use your four-seasons room as intended—through all months of the year. In the summer, you can enjoy the evening breeze without the buzz of mosquitos or even weather a summer storm. In colder winter months add a vinyl shade in tandem with your solar mesh to close off the harsh elements.

The Screened Porches of 2020

So many Georgian’s are stuck in their home dreaming of the vacation they would have had. Due to the Covid-19 situation, the summer of 2020 points to evolving homeowner expectations, it may be the frequency with which locals are integrating screen porches, patios, and outdoor kitchens into original landscaping that artfully marries the house to its setting.

Gone are the days of the minimal outdoor footprint; today’s homeowners want to express themselves—which is why the traditional house is becoming more personalized. Atlanta homeowners want outdoor rooms and spaces that are wired for entertainment, useable for seven or eight months of the year, and so easy to maintain that the usual repair and replacement tasks are mostly eliminated.

Screen porch construction has become much more advanced with a vast range of products and technology available. Most of these technologies are designed to fit right into an existing home automation system. And with the popularity of Alexa and Google Home, voice control is expected.

To satisfy this more demanding criteria, Peachtree Blinds constantly stays on top of a new generation of weather-resistant materials, absorbing and applying fine building techniques that will shape non-traditional materials into designs perfectly suited to the home’s style and setting. As the standard has risen, so, too, the need to stay ahead of the curve.

The Motorized Porch Shades of 2020

One of our inovating products that has become extremely popular are our motorized screens from Universal. Motorized retractable screens are not necessarily new but the technology surrounding them is constantly evolving. From rain and wind sensors that lower or raise the screens when the weather is not cooperating to home automation integration and iphone or android device control. We also install many Alexa and Google Home controlled screens.

This weeks motorized outdoor shade installation took place at Reynolds Plantation at Lake Oconee, Georgia. The screens were produced by Universal Motion Screens of Dallas, TX. The customer’s primary goal was to block the bugs and gain more enjoyment from their deck with an awesome view of the water. Powered by Somfy motors, the client will have the ease of a multi-channel remote which will allow them to operate the screens individually or as a group. The screen mesh is produced by Phifer who manufactures Pet Mesh; a 10 year warranty screen material that won’t rip, tear, or mildew.

A single window was covered with a 95% solar mesh to help reduce the incredible amount of heat that was reflecting off the water. When the screen is down it reduces the temperature coming into the house by a whopping 16 degrees!

On the outside patio you will also notice Retractable Screen Doors installed on a set of custom French Doors produced by Mirage Screens. Mirage Screens offer the same resistant pet mesh which will keep the look and consistency in tact with the rest of the patio / deck area. Mirage doors are made to retract slowly to prevent injury and a safer retraction that won’t slam or pinch fingers.

Prepare For Spring With Motorized Patio Screens

Midtown Atlanta Porch Shades

Spring is right around the corner, and the seasonal clean up doesn’t have to be limited to inside spaces. Tidy up your Georgia patio for the warmer days ahead. Sweep off the porch, wipe down furniture, wash cushion covers, and add some motorized exterior shades to keep your space cool, comfortable and convenient.

Motorized solar screens are made with solar screen fabric that is available with varying degrees of light blockage ranging from 60- 90%. Fabrics with higher light blockage ratings will give superior UV protection, but allow for less visibility.

If you want to keep your great view, but still need moderate sun protection for family or fragile furniture, choose a fabric with a lower light blockage. These weaves let some natural light in, but keep out glare.
