Exterior vs. Interior: Which Solar Shades Is Right for You?


Solar shades are made out of a fiberglass mesh material that is designed to block harmful UV rays from the sun without completely eliminating natural light. While both exterior and interior shades successfully block up to 80 percent of the sun’s heat, which can increase temperatures in your home, you might prefer one model over the other.

Exterior Shades

Much like a custom awning, an exterior shade is attached to the outside of the window. Exterior shades are fixed into place, where it will always block obtrusive glare or harsh sunlight that makes even simple activities like watching television less enjoyable. While exterior shades allow homeowners to easily see outside, passersby cannot peer into the house, which increases your privacy. These shades also reduce heat from the sun before it even reaches your window, which will increase your comfort and decrease your energy bill.

Interior Shades

If you don’t want constant protection from a solar screen, then a retractable interior model could be your answer. Homes in climates that experience cold winters might benefit from the interior style, allowing homeowners to raise the screen temporarily and warm up the house with cozy sunshine. Just as easily, the shade can be closed to keep that heat inside, which will lower heating bills.

Your Choice

Although you might prefer one style, both exterior and interior solar shades protect your windows, your family, and the inside of your home from dangerous UV rays, keep unwanted insects from entering the house, and allow ventilation when the windows are open.

Moran Canvas Products has the best solar shades for your home. We also offer residential and commercial awnings to transform your house or storefront. Check out our products on our website and call us at (888) 904-8665 to order your new screen or awning.

Enjoy the Outdoors in a New Cabana


Summer is a great time to enjoy the outdoors and the company of friends. Unfortunately, intense sunlight beating down can make outdoor gatherings unappealing and impractical. But a new cabana can solve this and other common outdoor troubles. Explore the many benefits a custom cabana or awning can add to your household:

More Hosting Opportunities: Your expansive patio is the perfect place to plan a summer BBQ or mixer. A cabana allows your guests to enjoy the outdoors and poolside relaxation in total comfort. A shaded cabana space will also help limit foot traffic through your home. By hosting your party mostly outdoors around your cabana, you reduce any indoor cleanup after the guests have left. Say goodbye to tracked dirt and spilled drinks on indoor carpet for good.

Improved Home Value: Friends and family members aren’t the only ones who will appreciate your new cabana. Homebuyers are likely to see cabanas and outdoor additions as huge incentives to purchase. Cabanas are especially beneficial if your home also includes a pool. The outdoor fun offered by these home improvements is hard to resist. You can even start open house tours under the cabana to show off your backyard.

Shaded Storage Options: Cabanas offer more than summertime entertainment. These covered installations also provide outdoor storage throughout the year. High-quality canvases can protect outdoor decorations, pool accessories, and seasonal lights from solar fading and precipitation. Plus, cabanas are far more attractive than wooden or aluminum storage sheds.

Expanded Outdoor Use: The added shade provided by a cabana can also help you expand your living space. Gym equipment, comfortable couches, and dining tables all go great under the shade of a cabana. Consider increasing your square footage with a cabana before choosing an expensive home addition.

Moran Canvas Products is your top choice for fine canvas cabanas. We’ve continued to design and construct stylish outdoor additions since 1988. Put our experience to work for you today by calling (888) 904-8665.

The Appeal of Awnings from Moran Canvas Products

A bit of shade makes all the difference during the sunny summer season. In fact, high-quality awnings greatly improve indoor comfort. This video shows why awnings from Moran Canvas Products are such an attractive upgrade for your home or  business.

Excess sunlight is the source of numerous troubles for homeowners. Indoors, UV radiation can fade furniture and carpet. Outdoors, sunlight makes relaxing on a deck or patio uncomfortable and can also fade and crack paint. The addition of an awning can solve all these household issues and greatly increase your home’s appeal and comfort!

Moran Canvas Products is founded and operated by a third-generation awning craftsman. Since 1988, we have served San Diego residents and business owners with beautiful custom awnings. Contact us at (888) 904-8665 to learn more about our products.
