Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GazeboLover Awesome! I love it!
I purchased 50 feet last fall and just got around to my weekend warrior project two weeks ago.
The shade fabric is awesome. I can see through it just enough to see the sun, clouds and everything, but it still provides perfect shading. You can kinda see it in the close-up pic, you can see the back of my house through the screen. Its a very nice weight too! It handles the wind nicely.
I was concerned about how big the holes would be, but it's just right. We get a lot of afternoon sun and could not enjoy our patio till now.
My project shown:
I purchased a gazebo a few years ago. A tornado ripped it up. I saved the four corners hoping to salvage it someday. 2 years ago, i put the pavers together to wrap around the bottom of the frame, poured concrete in it and let it dry. We get 2-3 tornadoes a year and it hasn't budged.
I finally found the right fabric for the top. A few weekends ago we designed and built the frame and added the fabric. Its strong enough to handle the wind and me yanking it around when the wind blows it and causes a fold at the top; and it glides nicely along the beams when I adjust the shade up and down along the front to block more sun by those two chairs.
Perfect! Love my home made gazebo!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OntWintrTxn Vertical Blinds from SunTex 80!
We liked the idea of blinds from solar screen but not the price of custom blinds. Vertical blind vanes were made cutting the SunTex 80 into 3 1/2" wide by 60" long strips, hemming the top 1" and the bottom 2". The bottoms were weighted slightly and stiffened by using two pieces of wide craft sticks cut to 3" long that were slid in place while hemming the bottom. No hole was made at the top, the blind vanes just slid into the vertical blind clip and stay in place. A labor intensive project but we love the end result. Combined with Bali vertical blind rails also purchased from Home Depot and cut on site to our specifications, we are extremely pleased with the products and the customer service from both Home Depot and Bali Blinds.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Drew This stuff is awesome
Simple to put up, I got eyelets from Harbor Freight for $3 and hung from screw-in hooks from the eaves. Gives me privacy, but I can still see out and it blocks all of the direct sun and heat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnK SunTex 80 Shading Fabric
This is a great product. I recently added two pergolas to the pool area in my back yard. However, I found that they did not block enough direct overhead sunlight to keep the area under the pergolas cool enough. I ordered 4 rolls of SunTex 80, rolled it onto the top deck of the pergolas, cut it to size, and simply stapled it to the cedar top strips. It is a perfect solution to the problem. It provides mottled shade for the plants under the pergolas even at high noon while allowing enough light to penetrate to make the area pleasantly well lit. The shade obviously reduces the temperature making the area much more comfortable. I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gtu9 Worked Perfect
I purchased this screen to build a solar screen for two bedroom windows to cut down the solar reflection that was burning my artificial grass. The sun was reflecting off of my windows and on to my artificial grass and melting it. I purchased two screen kits and this screen. It stopped the glare completely and protected the grass. I selected the 80% over the 90% since it was just as effective and did not significantly alter my view from the inside of the house looking outside. It also cooled the inside rooms of the house about 15 degrees.

I had read that one could hang this on the inside of the window. I could never afford to have screens made with this, so I sewed a pocket and hung it on the inside using a spring rod. I t worked great and has helped alot with the desert sun!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Betty25 Excellent Screen
I was very surprized when I opened up the package to the screen. This screen is beautiful. I had my deck screened in with it and I can say it is the prettiest screened room around here. Even the mailman stopped to talk and liked it! :) This screen is tough, durable and provides shading and privacy. No bugs can get in this stuff. You can see out very well. People can still see in not like the black color, but I didn't care about that because I didn't want it to be totally dark. My contractor was so impressed with this screen he had never worked with it before. He did an excellent job!
I would highly recommend this screen to anyone. I know you won't be disappointed and wait for all the wonderful feedback you will get. It's gorgeous!!!

this product is just wonderful. I have no trees around my house and its gets unbearably hot. In summer its too costly to run my air conditioner and I have several handicapped people in my home who suffer along with me in the heat. I bought a couple rolls of this screen a few years ago and it has made an immense difference. It has lasted, its starting to wear now, but Ive had it up for almost ten years now. It has been a Godsend, truly. Thank you for carrying this product.
