These solar shades work well at reducing afternoon sun, for a fair price. The color turned out to be more yellow, less brown, than we had expected. In the past, we have taken advantage of BC's offer to send color samples before ordering. We were in a hurry this time. Next time, I will definitely order color samples first!
One minor comment about the installation instructions: they seem to apply to two different types of bracket, only one of which is actually in a given package. I don't understand why the sheet of instructions isn't specific to the one model that is actually shipped. The instructions were fine, but I thought it would not have been too difficult to make them even more clear. For instance, I installed two shades side-by-side. With clearer instructions, or with a practice run first, I could have made them perfectly even when fully unrolled. I can easily go back now and tweak them, but so far I haven't bothered.
