Sunpro Hawaii's FAQ's

If you have any questions about our products, this is the section to read. Here are a few commonly asked questions we've gotten over the years.

General

Q: Why should I use a shading device?
You lose up to 40% of energy through windows and doors - our shading devices help cut that percentage down!

Q: Why should I use an exterior vs. interior shading device?
Exterior shading devices are 10-20 degrees better at insulation, which means you can save significantly on your utility bills.

Q: Do you do custom work?
All of our work is custom except for shading devices, which have certain size and ratio limitations.

Q: What choices do I have to operate the shading devices?
You can use straps, cranks, or electric motors.

Q: What are the advantages of awnings, solar screens, and rolling shutters?
They are excellent for patio shading and allow for you to enjoy outdoor activities without being exposed to the harsh sun.

Q: Is it easy to clean and maintain exterior shading devices?
Yes! Each product has its own maintenance instructions, so please ask us for those instructions.

Q: Do all your products come with warranties?
Yes, all of our products and services come with 5-year warranties.

Q: How long do your products last?
The hardware can last for decades while the fabrics can last 10-12 years or even longer.

Q: Can I install your products myself?
If you do not have professional experience, we do not recommend it. You may put yourself in unnecessary danger and void your warranty.

Q: How much do your products cost?
The prices vary depending on the size, installation site, and the method of operations.

Awnings and Shutters

Projection length is 13.5 feet, but there is no limit for the width of the awning. If it is longer than 23 feet, we need to use multiple frames.

Q: Do shutters keep houses warm in the winter too?
Yes! Energy loss happens for both heat and the cold, so with our shutters, you can retain energy for both the summer and winter.

12 feet in width and 10 feet in height. However, we can customize our shutters to fit your needs.

Always Reliable

Q: Can a solar screen be installed horizontally?
Yes, but we recommend rolling shutters instead of solar screens for that purpose.

Q: What is the UV blockage for your screens?
UV blockages usually range from 85%-90% but you can special order higher blockage screens.

Q: Is there a size limit for a solar screen?
