What a 5 star company. We had our windows cleaned inside and out and they are sparkling clean. We also had solar screens made. All work was completed in a timely manner, and the staff are wonderful, friendly and hardworking. Would highly recommend Defined Window Cleaning.
Ade and his crew did a fantastic job on my solar screen replacement project. They were very professional, always on time and finished exactly as estimated with great prices. He has come out to do some screen doors as well. And of course prompt and very reasonable. I would highly recommend - you’ll be glad you did
Screen color is not just purely cosmetic. The stucco solar screen mesh is more visible to the eye when viewing from the inside of the home. So take that into consideration when deciding which color you want.
As far as effectiveness goes, all the colors provide the same amount of sunlight reduction entering the home.
The pricing is the same for all colors.
This depends on the time of the year. In the summer months, you can spend up to $10-13 a square foot. However, in the colder months, on average, the price comes to approximately $7-8 a square foot. This cost includes the price of the actual screen and labor for installation.
If you already have solar screens and you need them rescreened, then it’s about half the price.
Solar screens reduce the temperature of your home by up to 15%. In a Las Vegas summer, that’s an average of up to 15 degrees cooler. This means you won’t have to use your AC as much to cool your home. The actual dollar amount is difficult to say because it depends on many factors. But you can save up to 30% on your AC bill. In Las Vegas, that’s significant. On average, solar screens pay for themselves after only 1 or 2 summers.
Another factor to remember is that by using your AC less, you’ll be increasing the unit’s lifetime. This results in money savings as well.
On average, it takes approximately 3 days between accepting the estimate and installing your solar screens. In the summer months, this can change because of demand. But on average, it never takes more than a week.
Solar screens are designed to reduce heat mostly. There will be a reduction in light, but the screens allow light to pass through. So no, your home will not be too dark.
In addition, there are two types of solar screens. The two types block 80% and 90% of solar heat. The 90% will allow less light, so if darkness is a concern, it would be wise to go with 80%. The good thing, too, is that 80% is cheaper than 90%. So you can even save some money.
Yes. Solar screens are installed to be easy to take off. Some people decide to do this in the winter months when the screens are needed as much.
If you’re getting new screens installed, then once you accept the estimate, you will pay a 50% deposit. This allows us to purchase the materials for your screens. Once the job is complete, the remaining 50% is due.
We take all forms of payment, including:
Credit Card, Debit Card, Cash, Check, Venmo, Zelle, etc.
We have yet to find an HOA that does not allow solar screens. We know what the HOA regulations are, and we build solar screens to ensure that they fit with the regulations of HOAs in Las Vegas.
All you need to do is call or text us at (702) 747-0901, and we’ll schedule a FREE estimate. Or you can fill out the form above, and we’ll get back to you ASAP to schedule your FREE estimate.
Our solar screens come with a 10-year warranty.
Whether you get solar screens for all your windows or just some of them is up to you. The heat reduction, though, will be much greater if you buy screens for all the windows. And the better the heat reduction, the greater cost savings you will find over time.
Phifer screens recently have been having some issues with deteriorating quicker over time, so we have moved to Twitchell screen products.
We find the cooler months to be the best time to install solar screens. Prices increase in the summer months because the demand is so high.
We’re currently offering 20% off all solar screen services.

Why is indoor air quality important?
People spend about 90% of their time indoors, where air can be 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air. Products can release thousands of potentially harmful chemicals (VOCs or volatile organic compounds) into the indoor environment. Once airborne, VOCs can easily be inhaled by building occupants. Poor indoor air quality can trigger a number of health problems, including asthma and allergy attacks, headaches and flu-like symptoms.
Microban technology is built-in antimicrobial protection that gives products an added level of protection against microbes such as stain-and-odor causing bacteria, mold and mildew.
Microban protection continuously fights the growth of microbes such as odor-and stain-causing bacteria, mold and mildew. Microban protection makes products easier to clean and keeps them cleaner between cleanings.
Warranty: Twitchell will warranty any product that does not meet their respective production tolerances and loss of dimensional stability including mildew and rot from exposure conditions outside normal atmospheric pollution or other debris.
