Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lisa Shades
They were easy to install and no parts were missing. One of the shade were assembled too close to one side but no problems getting them rolled up or down. The quality is very good and I believe they will last a long time. The shades keep my patio heat down very well since I get sun all day long in my back yard.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by daddude good product, easy to install
Very easy to install. High winds were not a problem because the blinds are held in place very well. They block the heat coming in from the windows and walls pretty good. Our inside temperature went down during a hot stretch by several degrees. It did take a long time to get our shipment, 10 days.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WalleCo great product, great service..........but........
The problem is the special order shade(s) I was trying to match (special size) were the same brand, color etc but mislabeled as "Sesame" for the color. So, I decided to drive 50 mi R/T a store to figure it out and ended up paying more for a stock size to get the right color (Walnut).
As for quality, I'll have to see how they hold up on the hot / sunny side of my house.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shadowman Does What it's Supposed To Do
Easy to install (after the 1st one). Just followed directions, measuring carefully.
Loosened/turned the 'Brake Screws' 1 full turn (counterclockwise) so as to not break the plastic chain for raising/lowering.
Using bungee cords for anchoring the bottom w/ mild tension, repeats, mild tension (keep them from blowing around in the breezes). Raises (retracts) them in breezes in excess of 10mph +/-. You'll know when to.
My Coolaroo exterior shades range in size from 48" x 72" to 120" x 96", total of 5 up at this time. The larger, heck, we could place them on a sailboat & be in Hawaii in 3 days, the way they catch the breezes.
This array of shades keeps the interior room temperature 10 - 18 degrees cooler which allows the ac to consume less electricity + providing some additional privacy.
May add more to this review in time. Time of service/durability is a semi unknown factor as the original set purchased have only been up for a year. They have weathered well so far.
I live near Phoenix, AZ, btw. It gets a tad warm here during the summertimes.
Now, Kudos for store service:
Mgr Ryan Oda, Store # 420, is the reason I spent nearly $1k with Home Depot during the recent weeks. He is a credit to Home Depot. I have observed him work w/ clients, w/ staff members, dealt w/ him personally & found him an excellent organizer, communicator, exceptionally knowledgeable person who effectively accomplishes in necessary areas, even those that may not have been thought of previously. I know from experience, more than likely, Home Depot is not paying this gentleman near enough $$$$$$ for his services to the Corporation.
Staff members Corey, Tom, & Rick deserve recognition & very positive kudos for work/assistance well accomplished.
My thanks/kudos to all of this team.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SM886 Not as described!
The shades came with poles to raise and lower. The description said it was a corded shade. I will have to return because I can have poles hanging in my windows.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HiDez Not the same quality
This shade is definitely not the same quality as the other Coolaroo exterior shades we have purchased. It is basically just the cheaper shade cloth material on a roller - flimsy fabric compared to the other high quality shades Coolaroo has made in the past. If this had been for a window that was in plain view I would have returned it immediately, as it is we will live with it for the time being because it is very difficult to find the 4' size. We don't expect it to hold up as well as the other shades we have on our house.

These shades are good quality with a plastic weave cloth and easy to use roll mechanism. It was easy to install and even includes shade holders at the bottom in case your shade is in a windy area.
