1. Quality is Top Notch!
When shopping around for sunscreens, I got several estimates and chose who I felt would do the best job with the best QUALITY! Of course, I chose Boss Blinds & Sunscreens! The main reason is because I have a HUGE arched window in front of my house that is SOOOO HOT in the late afternoons. I wanted grids, but no other companies would notch and rivet the grids to make sure they stayed in place! Everyone else just wanted to overlap the grids… a very flimsy proposition!
Needless to Say, I am so glad we chose A to Z! Not only were they really friendly and professional, but their QUALITY IS TOP-NOTCH! My neighbor up the street chose to use another company because they were cheaper…. And I must say, the difference in quality is obvious!
Spending just a little more for a better quality screen and a great purchasing experience was well worth it!
If you are shopping around, take it from me, you get what you pay for, and while not always the least expensive, Boss Blinds & Sunscreens definitely gave me the best value for my dollar.

I recently hired Boss Blinds and Sunscreens to make 5 customer 90% shade screens for five of our windows on our home. Caeser came to my home for a free estimate, was polite, professional, and offered excellent competitive pricing so we quickly chose Boss for the job. We could not be happier with him and his work, as Boss blinds offers a great product and installation of the highest caliber.

When you find that your sun screens are faded or worn looking it is probably time to replace them. And, if you do not, you are likely to hear from your homeowners association about it. Homeowners associations are tasked with keeping neighborhoods looking well-maintained and ensuring that each individual house upholds certain “standards” or requirements. If you have a received a notification from your homeowner’s association that your exterior window shades are no longer compliant you need to replace them, and soon, or face penalties and fines. At Boss Blinds & Sunscreens in Glendale we have helped many customer’s find the ideal sun screens for their home that provide protection but also are compliant with HOA guidelines so that no penalties are incurred. There are a variety of shades and levels of darkening ability to meet even the strictest homeowners association guidelines and if there is flexibility within the guidelines for appearance there are many styles to choose from for homeowner’s that will blend seamlessly with any style of home.
In addition to replacing worn out or old sunscreens, your homeowner’s association may ask you to replace bug screens on your windows if they are looking old. Bug screens are very important because it is ideal to open windows when the weather is nice and let your home be naturally (and inexpensively!) cooled. But, if you open your windows and have no bug screens or fabric shades installed then bugs and outdoor creatures can come right in. Needless to say, this is not ideal. If you have to replace your bug screens, Boss Blinds & Sunscreens can replace your bug screens to keep you HOA compliant. Additionally, if you need make a replacement it may be an ideal time to switch from bug screens to sunscreens on some or all of your windows so that you provide bug protection and sun protection as well. Speak with our experienced staff for recommendations and assistance in keeping your home HOA compliant while reducing energy costs and making your home more comfortable with sun screens.
"Wove wire for window screens" are referenced in the American Farmer in 1823. Advertisement for wire window screens also appeared in Boyd's Blue Book in 1836. Two wire window screens were exhibited at Quincy Hall in Boston in 1839.
In 1861 Gilberr, Bennett and Company was manufacturing wire mesh sieves for food processing. An employee realized that the wire cloth could be painted gray and sold as window screens and the product became an immediate success. On July 7, 1868, Bayley and McCluskey filed a U.S. Patent, number 79541 for screened roof-top rail-car windows, allowing ventilation, while preventing "sparks, cinders, dust, etc." from entering the passenger compartment. By 1874, E.T. Barnum Company of Detroit, Michigan advertised screens that were sold by the square foot.
Window screens designed specifically to prevent insect entry were not patented in the United States, although by 1900 several patents were awarded for particular innovations related to window screen design. By the 1950s, parasitic diseases were largely eradicated in the United States in part due to the widespread use of window screens. Today many houses in Australia, the United States and Canada have screens on operable windows.
For screens installed on aluminium frames, the material is cut slightly larger than the frame, then laid over it, and a flexible vinyl cord, called a spline, is pressed over the screen into a groove (spline channel) in the frame. The excess screen is then trimmed close to the spline with a sharp utility knife. Common spline sizes range from 3.6 mm (0.140 in) to 4.8 mm (0.190 in), in increments of 0.25 mm (0.010 in).
The spline is often manufactured with parallel ridges running along the length of the spline to provide a better grip and compliance when it is pressed into the channel. A spline roller — a special tool that consists of a metal (or plastic) wheel on a handle — is used to press the spline into the frame. The wheel edge is concave, to help it hold the spline and not slip off to the side. Some spline rollers are double-ended and have both convex and concave rollers; the convex roller can be used to seat the spline deeper into the channel without risk of cutting the screen. Driving the spline into the channel tends to tension the screen on the frame, so the installer must avoid pre-tensioning the screen excessively to prevent the frame from becoming warped.

Millions of Window Shades, Blinds Recalled.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Window Covering Safety Council have announced a voluntary recall to repair Roman shades and roll-up blinds to prevent the risk of strangulation to young children.
The recall -- the second largest in U.S. history -- involves millions of Roman and roll-up blinds. About five million Roman shades and about three million roll-up blinds are sold each year. More than 50 million Roman shades and roll up blinds that were sold at some of the nation's biggest retailers, such as JC Penney, Walmart and Pottery Barn, are part of this recall.
Consumers are being offered free repair kits.
What are Sun Screens?
Sun screens (also known as sun screens or privacy screens) are specially-made window screens that cover an entire window in order to block the sun’s rays and heat before hitting the window’s glass. In essence, the sun screen fabric is a densely woven polyester yarn coated with a PVC Vinyl Coating that is made to withstand years of weathering from the sun’s intense heat. This special fabric absorbs and dissipates the sun’s intense rays, and can keep your home or office 8 to 10 degrees cooler, making the living area more comfortable while simultaneously saving you energy and money.
Simply put, sun screens are made to reduce 80% to 90% of the sun’s heat before it enters your home through your windows. This significant reduction in solar heat gain through your windows reduces the amount of heat that your air conditioning unit has to remove from your house. Curtains, shades, tint and other products have their uses, but nothing short of a good shade tree or piece of plywood will reduce this heat load like the quality Sun Screens!
How do solar screens work?
There are three factors that help make sun screens keep your home cool as efficiently as they do. They are:
1. Shading – With a sun screen installed on the outside of the glass and covering the entire window, a layer of protective shade is created over the glass allowing less heat and glare to heat up the window and enter your home. The higher the sun is in the sky, the more acute the angles of its rays to the sunscreen mesh. This increasingly acute angle allows less and less light onto the window, thus rendering the screen even more effective.
2. Reflecting Sunlight – Some of the direct sunlight is reflected away from the window while at the same time, a tolerable amount of soft, filtered sunlight is allowed in.
3. Absorption – The sun screen absorbs heat and disperses it into the air surrounding the screen, reducing the amount of heat to hit the windows. With sun screens installed, a constant movement of fresh air due to natural convection moves over the glass. As the screen material dissipates it’s heat, the air between the glass and the screen heats, and then rises. The heated air that rises escapes through the screen holes toward the top of the screen while cooler air is drawn in down low through the holes near the bottom of the screen.
Should sun screens be removed during the winter?
Tests show a 15 percent improvement on thermal performance with sun screens installed during the winter. This improvement comes as a result of the sunscreens acting almost as a “third pane” on the glass reducing wind chill factor and cold air drafts. Consequently, many homeowners elect to leave sun screens in place year-round. However, the screens can be easily removed during winter months, especially on south windows, if full solar heat gain (allowing the sun to shine in to warm up the house) is desired.
What kind of warranty do you offer with your screens?
Boss Blinds & Sunscreens proudly stands behind their work! We offer a 5 year warranty on the Solar Screens themselves, and a 1 year warranty on the installation. Should the screen become damaged from the sun’s UV rays, fade, or otherwise prove to be defective within a 5 year period, we will gladly repair/replace the screen at no cost to you! If within a 1 year period, the installation proves to be inadequate, Boss Blinds & Sunscreens will gladly repair, replace, or reinstall your screens for free.
How long does it usually take to get my sun screens or screen door installed?
That depends completely upon what you purchase and, more importantly, WHEN you purchase it. QUALITY is generally more important to our customers than SPEED. As such, we come highly recommended, and our workload quickly increases as the summer approaches. Generally, most products take 1-2 weeks to be installed, but during the heat of the summer, wait times can be 3-4 weeks. As such, smart customers who purchase their sunscreens early in the season (January – March) get much quicker delivery…and sometimes OFF–SEASON DISCOUNTS.
