Outdoor Patio Drop Shades Provide Privacy
If you enjoy having a meal with your family and friends, reading a book, or simply
chilling on your patio, your new vertical drop shades will give you privacy and shade.
They will protect you from passers by, neighbors and will allow you to feel free and even
more comfortable at your outdoor space.

How Do Vertical Drop Shades Work?
Most modern vertical drop shades can be operated with remote control. By pressing a
button you can roll them up or down. Another way to operate this type of screen is by
using a handle that is hooked into the covering. By rotating the handle on the vertical
shades you can either roll them up or roll them down. When completely rolled up, the
drop awning screen is hidden inside the housing at the very top.

Pros of Vertical Drop Shades
One of the main benefits is versatility and flexibility of the vertical drop down shades.
Contrary to the conventional window coverings, the vertical drop shades will remain out
of sight once closed. Once the vertical drop shades are rolled up, they are not visible
and won’t obstruct any views of your garden, backyard, hills, mountains or ocean. And
on the contrary, once the shades are down whether manually or automatically they will
protect your patio from excessive heat and light on a hot summer day.
Another great advantage of the vertical drop shades is that they will give you a little
more privacy and protect you from the view of others. Being hidden behind the drop
shades make you feel a little more secure and comfortable on your patio or porch.
Vertical drop shades can also protect you from bugs especially on summer days. This is
especially convenient if you enjoy having a delicious homemade meal with your family
and friends on your porch.
And finally, vertical drop awning screens give a special modern look to your patio and
outdoor space and look stylish and elegant.

How to Take Care of Vertical Drop Shades
Usually vertical drop shades do not require a lot of maintenance. Once they are rolled
up, they are protected by the cover they are stored in. If they’ve been rolled down, it’s a
good idea to to wipe them clean with a soft cloth and mild detergent. This will clean your
shades from dust and other debris and will give it a fresh look. Do not use hose to clean
your vertical drop shades. This may damage the material or other parts of the shades.
