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.

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 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.

It's as hot as it gets in globally warming northern Vermont and humidity is nearing New Jersey norms. I'm a schoolteacher cranking on curriculum these hot summer days and as soon as I finish posting this review I'm going to turn off my fan. That's how cool the shades are keeping this south-west facing room with huge windows. I have no idea how well the shades will withstand winter; I'll probably see if the roller can come out for inside storage. Meanwhile, the money I spent on the shades is a much better deal for me then running up my electric bill with an air-conditioner.

Bought 3 of these at our local Home Depot. Had them shipped to the house. Was here on the day promised. Hung them from the ceiling (after making recommended alterations), went as smooth as silk. No problems, look great, my wife and I could not be happier with them.
