Frequently Asked Questions about Roller Shades

Can you see through window roller shades?

It will depend on the type of roller shade. For example, solar shades have an open weave fabric that lets in the light.

When the lights are turned on in your home at night, it is easier to see inside through the blinds.

How do you fix a roller shade that won’t roll up?

If the shade doesn’t hold, the spring is too loose. Pull the shade down enough to roll the roller several times; if it is very loose, pull it down about halfway. Lift the flat end of the roller off its base. Then roll the blind by hand, keeping it firmly rolled up.
