2 months in and still happy
Erik from Waunakee, WI – Verified Buyer
Granted there is not a lot of history with my purchase yet but so far I'm pleased. I have the 96" version for an outdoor gazebo. I've never been able to use the deck during the summer on a sunny day. The gazebo helps up until 3pm when the sun angle floods the interior of the gazebo. These shades do a wonderful job of keeping the direct sunlight off of our bodies. This should not be considered a privacy shade. You can see out and in during the day to be able to see most objects. You need to be about 30 feet away to make out faces but both motion and stationary objects are visible. there is still enough light penetrating during the day to see clearly inside and it also lets breezes through to keep it cool. You can still feel on your skin a small amount of sunlight penetrating the shade but it makes it feel up to 20 degrees cooler and never uncomfortable. In the evening someone from the outside can still see in if the interior is lighted. I had initially hoped for slightly more blocking but after this summer I'd say the blocking level is nearly ideal. We can finally be outside again and comfortable even in oppressively hot direct sunlight. These blinds are corded and work smoothly and easily. Installation was easy and the quality is impressive especially for the price. Id but again.
Worth Every Penny

These shades have made such a difference in our living room. We have them hanging outside on our lanai, which faces west. Before we bought the shades, we would close the drapes every afternoon, but the living room would still heat up. Now we don't even need to close the drapes. The shades cut down the sun more than we could have imagined and the living room stays nice and cool. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that the fabric in one of the shades had several small runs in it. Didn't want the hassle of returning it so we're just living with it. Also, there are supposed to be bungee tie downs included to fasten the shades and keep them from moving in the breeze. However, we bought 6 shades and NONE of them came with the tie downs. Other than those small problems, we love them. Definitely worth the investment.
EXCELLENT sun blockage
DEBRA from INDIO, CA – Verified Buyer
This shade is to block the eastern rising sun in the desert summer - temps sometimes 120 degrees. The blinding sun used to fade furniture, pictures, and make it impossible to view the computer screen. Now, problem solved. Most people hang these outside the covered area; I mounted it inside for additional protection of the roller and parts. Very happy.
Excellent and Quick Service!
Virginia from SC – Verified Buyer
Wayfair provided excellent service in the ordering of the Designer Series Roller Blind. The quality of the blind is very good. It was very easy to install and works flawlessly. Absolutely love the product.

Used it to block a nosy neighbor and it did the trick. Stood up well to freezing cold blizzards. Make sure it is hung on a VERY sturdy frame. I built a portico and bought three of these. Excellent and well made.
Excellent quality shade
J from Farmville, VA – Verified Buyer
After many years I needed to replace an outdoor shade; again I chose Coolaroo. The fabric on the old one still remains in very good shape,however, the stitching finally wore through and could no longer support the bottom rail. I give this product 5 stars; I especially like the way this blind raises and lowers.
Keeps heat out!
Susan from Franklin, TN – Verified Buyer
I really liked the color of my shade. It does block out considerable heat. Just don't pull the chain too fast or it jumps off track.

Works well on screened porch and has held up well.
Leonard from Quartz Hill, CA – Verified Buyer
Very nice shade. Blocks setting, western sun well and color of shade goes with all home colors. Very easy to install.
Peajay42 from Berlin WI
Good quality. It was fairly difficult to install because we had to make adjustments in the width of the shade's hardward. The shade was listed as 10'x 6'. We measured our area as exactly 10' and the shade was 2-1/2 inches longer due to the hardware on both ends. We had to cut off one end of the pole in order to get it to fit. It actually worked out just fine. It definitely makes a difference in cutting the heat factor down in our sun porch. [...]
