Exterior Blind & Shade Reviews
Window & Skylight Shade Testimonials from EZ Snap Customers.
We are really happy with the EZ Snap System screen. Our house has a room with a with a very large window facing east. I placed a thermometer in that room through the summer. On sunny days, the thermometer commonly read 30c (86f). This was the reading, even though the air conditioner was running and other rooms in the house were being maintained in the low 20 degrees Celsius.
We made sure all vents were completely open in the room. We first installed interior solar shades and even blackout window blinds. These two items did help some, but the room was still unusable and very hot.We even paid for a HVAC company to do an inspection. They said the insulation, ducting etc was good. The problem was the heat load from the window. This window was only 3 years old and so we thought the only way to fix this would be to replace the window with a smaller one. That solution solution was going to be a huge project, as well as very expensive, as that section of the house has a stone exterior.
Before we downsized the window, I thought I would research one more time and look for a less expensive option. I found the EZ Snap exterior shades and figured for less than $200, it was worth a try, especially compared to the new window, which was going to cost thousands.
THIS SHADE SYSTEM IS FANTASTIC.The shades look good on the house, although I noticed that when I installed them that I put a few wrinkles into the fabric in the corners. Most important though is that they are the functionality and they work. We put the shades up on a hot Summer weekend.
On day 1 (Saturday), before the screens went up, the room was 29 degrees by 10:30 AM.The outside temperature was 25 degrees Celsius.
On day 2 ( Sunday), with the screens up, the room never got warmer than 23 degrees.The outside temperature was also 25 degrees Celsius.
ONE MONTH LATER.Since installing EZ Snap, the thermometer in that room shows the temperature is now remaining the same as the rest of the house. I'm a little shocked every time I walk into the room, as I expect to be hit by a heat wave. Problem Solved.
Great product. Delivered on time by UPS.
What a difference! Easy to install and looks great on my windows. I would recommend this to anyone that needs to protect the inside of their home or floors from damaging UV rays in the summer. The adhesive snaps work well on glass or metal, just make sure you wait at least 24 hours for the adhesive to really bite onto the surface, before you install the shade cloth material that comes in the kit.
Everything turned out exactly as we hoped. Easy to install and very effective. We allowed the base studs of the snap to set for three days before installing the shades on the exterior windows of our yacht. So far, they have survived a summer in Baltimore, Maryland and an Atlantic Ocean and ICW trip down to St. Petersburg, Florida. If you follow the directions and clean the window and use rubbing alcohol on the area where you will adhere the snap and allow it to cure, all you should be fine.
Love this stuff, made a huge difference in the heat allowed into the house.
