Why You Need Shade Year Round in Southern California

As we approach the end of summer, the sun-drenched days of Southern California remind us that, even when the season changes, the sun’s rays do not. Boasting an average of 284 sunny days per year, the consistent glow is a defining characteristic of this region. And with that sunny disposition comes the undeniable need for outdoor window shades.

Consistent Sunshine, Consistent Protection

Living in Southern California is like experiencing a sunny day, every day. While it’s a blessing forbeach-goers and nature enthusiasts, it also means that our homes are constantly exposed to the sun’s relentless rays. This year-round sunshine highlights the importance of having window shades outside during all seasons, not just in the sweltering heat of summer.

Defend Your Home and Yourself

The sun’s rays, while inviting, can be harmful in multiple ways. Exterior window shades are crucial in:

  • Preserving Interiors: Sun-blocking shades or exterior shades help prevent harmful UV rays from fading furniture, artwork, and flooring. These exterior sun shades play a pivotal role in maintaining the vibrancy of your home’s interior.
  • Safeguarding Your Skin: Prolonged exposure to UV rays can lead to skin damage and an increased risk of skin cancer. That’s where sun-blocking shades come into play. Sunbrella fabric, recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation, provides an effective shield against UV radiation, making it a crucial part of your skin protection regimen. Dive deeper into how skincare transcends just sunscreen with Sunbrella.
