Great blind! Definitely blocks the light. Work 3rd shift , so when I sleep during the morning/afternoon no light comes in to wake me up.

Our window width measured 61" & we bought ther 60" width but it was too short & did not fit Inside the window frame. We thought because the mounting brackets were 1/2" on each side it would give us the 61" we needed to fit the window frame. We were really disappointed as the blinds are very nice looking on the window but we had to return them. Unfortunately 60" width is the largest they come in.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by daddyo Looks great and blocks scorching heat
We have a SE facing window over our stairs landing that is approx 4'x5'. The Texas sun was turning our upstairs into an oven even with A/C and fans going. We like having the view from the window so we didn't want to place curtains over it. This shade was ordered cut-to-size to fit perfectly in our window. Once installed, the temperature of our upstairs dropped significantly. Now, we can sit upstairs during the day without all of the fans going all day on high speed. Also, we can still see out the window and it is similar to looking out of a tinted window. The only minor complaint is the quality of the plastic roller chain. One of the chain beads is deformed and it can get caught when raising/lowering the chain. This is minor for us because we plan on leaving the shade down most of the time. Overall, we're extremely pleased with this product and its effectiveness. I recommend this to anyone that wants to block heat but still be able to see out their window.

As another reviewer said (which encouraged me to purchase this shade) it looks better in real life than the picture. It's not opaque and just filters the light. The window I put it in gets a very hot afternoon sun, and I am amazed at how much cooler the room is now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AnnaP Very impressed with quality and home depot service!!
I purchased this shade online as the stores no longer stock it. When it arrived, I took it to the local home depot with my window dimensions and had them cut it to size. They cut it perfectly and it fit exactly as I had measured. I had been looking for a solar shade for my picture window and found them to be very expensive. When I found this one at Home depot I was thrilled. I am very pleased with the quality!!! and the very reasonable price!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KissnRain You should buy these
I get nothing but compliments on my shades; they look stylish and have really classed up my windows. We bought a house in Central Texas, where there is a lot of sun and a lot of heat. It had no window coverings on any of the back windows. Even though we have a covered back porch, the windows create a lot of heat; the floor and furniture, heck, even the air near the windows is HOT in the summer. We looked into replacing the windows, but wow does that get expensive fast since they are custom sized. Instead, I installed these shades in the family room and breakfast nook (11 floor to ceiling, side by side windows). Since I installed them, the temperature at the windows is much cooler. It seemed that our AC wasn't kicking on as much, and sure enough, our power bill for last month (June) dropped $130 from what it was on either of the previous 2 years! Even on an overcast day, you can see outside just fine yet, people cannot see in. It is time to get some for the other four rooms on this side of the house. To recap, 1 - They look high end. 2 - Privacy (you can see out, but people can't see in) 3 - cuts down a lot on AC. Like I said, you should buy these!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sue3 So much better than I expected
Took the suggestion of other reviewers and brought it to Home Depot to have "cut to size." It's perfect! It looks so different hanging than in a roll. The shade is seamless, just blends into the wall, as it is sheer. I'm amazed that not only does it block off the sun's rays, but blocks the heat as well (morning sun.) Great product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gram excellent product
Ordered these for the west side windows in my sunroom.
They prevent the sun from coming through, yet I can still see out. Just what I wanted and are easy to get up and down.
