Re: Porch Sun Shade
We use the plastic "bamboo" shades on about half of our windows and don't generally have any mechanical problems with them until they've baked in the sun a couple years. They're attractive enough and work well.
A tip, if these will be free hanging in direct wind (away from a wall ), then it's best to either weight the bottom down or attach it to something to keep it from blowing. If it's against a wall, wind generally doesn't do much to them.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
