Hot enough for ya? It will be! In fact, summer temps in the Soo are expected to reach the mid-to high 20s throughout the summer months. But, as tempting as it may be to jack up the AC, there are smarter, more sustainable steps that you can take now to reduce the temperature of your home, and your energy bill.
Naturally, when you take steps to block the sun’s sweltering rays you can significantly decrease the ambient temperature of your home. Custom-made, cooling window treatments such as cellular blinds and exterior solar shades from ZebraBlinds are easy to install and provide welcome relief from the heat for your home or vacation property.
Custom-made Cellular Shades
The best option for blocking those hot summer temps is with cellular shades. These shades are manufactured using a unique cellular ‘honeycomb’ pattern that actually blocks air movement through the windows. Energy-efficient cellular shades keep you cool in summer and cozy during the winter months.
ZebraBlinds offers cellular blinds in your choice of light-filtering fabric that allows a soft glow of natural light into the room, or room-darkening fabric that blocks light completely. Both types provide complete privacy, and are manufactured to fit your windows within 1/8 of an inch.
Cellular shades are available in a range of designer colours, pleat size, and lift options including motorized blinds that sync to your smart home device.
Exterior Solar Shades
Think about the areas outside your home that could use some relief from the scorching summer heat.
Outdoor patio blinds or solar shades are a great way to create naturally cool comfort by the pool, over the kids’ play area or on the balcony, patio, porch or terrace. ZebraBlinds custom-creates exterior solar shades that effectively filter light, reduce glare and block the UV rays that are not only harmful to people and pets, they can damage décor, furniture and landscaping.
Customers in the greater Sault Ste. Marie area can order stylish outdoor patio blinds in a range of colours, fabrics and mechanisms that are created to withstand our often unpredictable weather patterns. ZebraBlinds will help you choose the best product for your needs.

All of the window coverings at ZebraBlinds are crafted using the customer’s individual measurements, making it a great choice for homes, cottages and RVs with uniquely shaped windows. Even those soaring A-frame cottage windows can be outfitted with beautiful, energy-saving cooling shades.
