The best way to address your problem with sun exposure is to invest in awnings, sun screens, or patio shades. These products can provide much-needed shade and protection from the sun’s harmful rays. Awnings can be mounted on the exterior of your home and extended or retracted as needed, while sun screens and patio shades can be attached to your window and patio.
