Thank you so much, the shades in the hot tub room make about a 30% difference in temperature and look beautiful. My cats love it. We have gotten tons of compliments and have given your company to a couple of people on the Island that have the same situation..."
"We LOVE the shades!!!!! They look great and really help make the room look amazing. We're still working on making changes to the room as a result and will send pics soon. Feel free to use us as a reference. Happy to
write a recommendation. We're so stoked!
Cheers and thanks to everyone at Thermal Designs,

Noreen recently installed our motorized solarium shades then left us a nice voicemail (click this link to listen)...
"We just received the replacement shade today for our sunroom. Thank you so very much. It is perfectly beautiful. Thanks for standing behind your products as you advertise that you do. Recently we had so much trouble with a company we used for venetian blinds that we will not be using them again. Not so with yours. It is refreshing to see high quality workmanship and great service from your company."
"... want to take this opportunity to thank you for your help & service with the design & installation of our thermal shades for our Brady-Built Sunroom. You were most supportive & helpful with our installation process. Everything is working well. We are most happy with our thermal window shades..."

"... When my wife started looking, and finally decided on purchasing our shades form Thermal Designs, I must admit I was somewhat skeptical. .. When we received the shades, my opinion changed significantly. All eight units were received in perfect condition, well labeled and when I opened the cartons, I was immediately impressed with the quality of the material and workmanship. I also had my doubts about the installation instructions, as I have received some that were very poor. All of the instructions were clear, concise and easy to understand. They even included all of the necessary brackets, screws and even the correct size drill bit. The installation went smoothly and quickly. We are delighted with our shades and I would highly recommend Thermal Designs if you are considering Four Seasons retractable shades. Well done! "
We received the blinds and my husband hung them over Christmas break, and we both are in love with them. They fit the windows perfectly and we couldn't be happier. Thank you for all your hard work and committment to getting them to us before Christmas. It is much appreciated! We have MANY more windows in need of blinds, and we plan on ordering them all from you in the future. Thanks again for the business and we look forward to working with you again in the future. Have a Happy New Year!"
"Thank you very much, the blinds arrived wednesday and they look absolutely awesome!!! We should have purchased these long ago, the temperature in the sunroom has dropped tremendously and the air conditioner doesn't run as often. It is such a wonderful room to sit and relax to watch tv in now."
" I wish to thank you for the very efficient way my order was handled and for the crew that prepared it for shipment. Everything worked out to perfection. The dimensions and fit couldn't have been better. They are all up now and look and function perfectly. I also appreciate your congeniality. To me your company seems highly ethical and holding to high quality standards."
"...Just a too brief note of exceeded expectation in WV! Excellent work. The kitchen shades are next! Thanks to all your wonderful and talented people..."
"...The shades are perfect! The color and weight of the shade are exactly how you explained, they look great with the wood trim. I was also impressed with the detailed instructions on installing them and all the supplies that came with them to install. We were able to install them in just over 4 hours. I would recommend Thermal Designs to all. You were fast and courtesy and knew your stuff..."
"... wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the shade system. I am so glad we found you on the web. The shades were great and the installation was very simple. I was a bit nervous about installation, but went very smooth and straightforward. Looking forward to winter to see how the shades perform in my passive solar room."
"Hi Isabel, We finally retired and our #1 project is to install our shades. Just to keep you up to date, the 1st is almost installed. Give us 10 more minutes to finish!. Only five to go. We are thrilled with the quality and ease of installation. Will send an email when we are done.."
"...Just wanted to let you know we've had our shades about a month now and we love them. My husband was delighted at how easy they were to install."
"The shades are in and I really love them! This makes my sunroom totally usable all summer long, despite the 90+ degree days we've been having.
The larger swatches of material you sent me and your feedback over the phone really helped. The fabric is perfect! They are extremely easy to open and close, so I don't hesitate to modify the lighting depending on the time of day and temperature.
Thanks so much for your help and for this terrific product!"
" Just wanted to drop you a quick email to let you know that the Sun Shades are up! We think they look totally lovely and gorgeous - and do a great job of reflecting the sun and providing shade and cooler temperatures.
Also, appreciate getting these in the timeframe promised."
"Well here is my sun room in Guilford, VT and the beautiful shades I purchased from you that were so easy to install. I must admit that I was overly nervous about the installation process, but was pleasantly surprised to find that I had all six shades installed in about 1.5 hours. I absolutely love how they look and the shade that they provide for me as well as for protecting the furniture in the room. I could not be happier with them. I am so glad that I found you on the internet. Anyone with a sun room should consider these beautiful as an addition to it. I think they will be as happy as I am with my new shades..."

Motorized Solarium Shades
Motorized solarium and sunroom shades offer great ease of operation and are run from a wall switch or radio frequency remote control, either hand held or wall mounted.
All of our solarium shades, sunroom shades and greenhouse shades operate on wheels which ride in pre-existing shade track imbedded in your room's glazing bars or we fabricate decorative add-on track specifically for your installation. Our Add-on Track Solarium Shades use gliders that run inside our custom fitting add-on track.

Solar shades (screen shades) are roller shades, require no track, cover vertical window surfaces and are operated by bead chain or motorization.
Our solarium and sunroom shades are available in a variety of durable, moisture-proof fabrics, textures, weaves and attractive fade-resistant designer colors. The choice of fabrics gives you the ability to control the amount of privacy, degree of transparency, heat reflectivity and heat retention.
Order your shades with insulating Thinsulate™ to maximize temperature control. This insulation layer inside each shade will work to keep your room warmer in winter and cooler in summer, reducing your heating and cooling costs. If your solarium is heated or air conditioned, we've found our insulated shades to be amazingly helpful in comfort and cost.
Insulated Solarium shades... and Greenhouse shades by Thermal Designs.
Our solar shades (screen shades) offer several densities to choose from for optimal sunlight reduction while keeping your visibility of the outdoors.
Thermal Designs solarium shades and blinds are also designed with low pitched solarium and greenhouse models in mind. Where gravity may need a little help in lowering, our shades are operated by hand using a simple shade wand against the shade handles to easily push them down and up.
Insulated Solarium Shades. (low pitch with handles for wand operation).
Shades for your solarium's gable end windows and doors are also available. Each bay of the gable end has its own shade that conforms to the roof line in curved or straight eave areas.

A recent email from one of our customers:
"...We are finally finished with our patio. We want to thank you again for your quality product. The blinds allow us to be in control of the patio. We've got sun (and heat) when we want, and cool shade when it's too hot. The blinds went up slick. Everything was in the shipment that we needed--well thought out. All the blinds were uniform and very well made. Our project, being a unique DIY type of installation, I was impressed ...NO surprises. You know your product very well and are able to communicate very well. That means a lot when you are doing the project all by yourself. We would highly recommend your product to anyone."
