Glass-walled exteriors can give you an incredible view, but what's the point if you're blinded by the sun streaming into your apartment in the mornings or evenings?

Solar shades are made of a material that blocks UV rays but distribute light evenly so you can still maintain your view. Various materials and mesh sizes are available, so you can choose the amount of light being filtered. The basket weave looks more like a fabric than a mesh, and they also have shades in vinyl-coated fiberglass, which provides less glare.

The shades manually roll up and down easily with the loop control system, but they are also available as a motorized system.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS   Ask Tom  
   
Q:  

Could someone contact me about a quotation for motorized shades for my apartment?  I'd like for someone to come over and do measurements, etc.

 
    Asked on 9/29/2012 by Dave from Manhattan  
 
       
A:   The best way to get an estimate for motorized shades is to set up an in home consultation. There is no cost involved in setting an appointment.

We bring to the meeting fabric samples and in addition to measuring the windows we are able to give suggestions about opacity of fabrics selected, colors and advise about the different motorized systems that are in the market.

Q:   I would like to know if you do all the electric wiring and also sheetrock valances when you install motorized solar shades.
Please let me know ASAP. This is for a residence in NYC.
 
    Asked on 8/20/2012 by Madeleine from Manhattan  
 
       
A:   Yes, we provide electric shades and have our own electrician in house that would bring power to the shade.

To cover the roll you can choose a metal fascia, a valance or a wood cornice that can be painted like the walls. For sheetrock valances you would refer to your contractor as it is part of construction.

Here is an example of wood valance that were painted.
