Very Pleased
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

Since we got the screening for our sky light we did see a difference in the temperature in our sunroom.

We are very pleased with the product and just took it off for the winter since the sun will give some heat through the skylight. Will put it back on in April.

Skylight Shade Review Photo from Mr Cordero

I upgraded my skylights to Velux and still noticed that our house was warm despite the upgraded skylights.

Heard great reviews about EZ snap so I ordered the kit. It was very fast and simple to install. The instructions given are clear and ordering was very easy.

Our house feels considerably cooler especially in the summer. Would highly recommend EZ Snap!!!

They don’t block the view, just the heat!
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

This product works exactly as marketed and makes a significant difference in the amount of heat coming through our skylights; so much so, that our cats were confused by the cool sunspots!

Even better, it was super easy to install, thanks to the well written instructions!

We removed and stored them last week, since it’s now mid-fall, and even that process was easy!

I also really appreciate the fact that they don’t block the view, just the heat!

I looked at a lot of different products and was very skeptical about buying this one; needless to say, I was wrong! Great product!

Sherri

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the positive review Sherri! Nice to know that EZ Snap is keeping you and your cats cooler.

AC runs less often
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

What can I say - worked exactly as described.

The directions were clear from start to finish.

The benefit of the skylight shade is evident - the room is several degrees cooler and the AC runs less often.

Hopefully they last a long time!

Greg Mummah

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the update Greg. Rest assured, EZ Snap Shades last a long time... 8 to 12 years expected useful life.

Congratulations on a great product.
EZ Snap Product: Exterior Window Shades

We are thrilled with our purchase of ezsnap. Having no air conditioning and only ceiling fans to cool our house in Southern California, it was crucial to find a product that would block some of the heat coming in.

I installed ezsnap shade on a large east-facing skylight and large west-facing window along with a smaller skylight and the inside of a west-facing quatrefoil window. We had previously used shade cloth to provide some relief from the blazing sun in summer, but after putting the ezsnap shade in place, our rooms were noticeably cooler while letting in more light. The difference was amazing.

Cutting the shade to size and installation were easy following instructions provided on the website.

We are very pleased to find a product that actually does what it says it will, and we plan to order more for a greenhouse window. Congratulations on a great product.

Brian

EZ Snap® Team - We are happy to hear that EZ Snap Shades are keeping you cooler in Southern California!

Skylight Shade Review Photo from Haley H
Hi y'all!

I just spent Labor Day weekend Ez Snapping some shades to my skylights! The entire process took two days and the majority of that time was spent letting my snaps adhere to the skylight.

Once the skylights were cleaned and snaps were ready - we simply rolled the fabric over the skylight and placed it into position. Snapping the tops on top of the fabric and cutting the excess couldn't have been easier.

This week is supposed to be a cooler week in Savannah, but I'm sure we'll get another 95 degree test day before the summer is actually gone!

Thanks again!

Extremely happy with this product
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

I purchased the ez snap product for the skylight in our family room. It’s an older model with no shade.

We’re in Southern California where it gets quite warm!

After installing the ezsnap screen we saw a remarkable difference in the comfort of our favorite room! It has blocked, just as promised, the great majority of heat but allowing daylight through.

I am extremely happy with this product and would recommend it to others who need help from the intense sunshine!

L. Steinberg

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the review Laurie. Nice to hear that EZ Snap Shades are keeping you cooler in Southern California!

Cooled our room 15-20 degrees
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

Hello,

I love the snap shades, they were easy to install and they have already faced a tropical storm and stayed put.

Oh yeah, and they cooled our room 15-20 degrees since they were skylights.

Thanks,

Syd Peterkin

Highly recommend the product!
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

I ordered the fabric after doing some quick research. Knowing I didn’t have to fool around with sticking a perfectly cut piece of tinted plastic was something that sold it for me - I knew there was no way that could come out as easy as they make it seem.

When the fabric came, I read the instructions, got on the roof, and installed over my skylights. Took around 1 hour to install for 3 skylights.

Following the directions was easy, and it is a straightforward process.

Noticed the difference immediately in the temperature in the house- it did not get nearly as hot.

Highly recommend the product!

Jim

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the recommendation Jim.

Skylight Shade Review Photo from Tammy B

We put EZ on our sky light at our home a month ago.

We are east of Lake Charles by about 200 miles, we had gusts from hurricane Laura of 40-50 mph winds ( maybe more than) and were without power for awhile because of downed trees in our area!!

The EZ snap is still in place after the storm!

I am beyond pleased with this product!!

It has also made it much cooler in my kitchen. I definitely can tell the difference in temperature!!

I would definitely recommend EZ snap!!

Really pleased with how they worked
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

HI !

I installed EZ Snap shades on the 3 skylights in my home during the heat wave in July.

They were pretty easy to install and I had no difficulties whatsoever. And they worked great!

In the kitchen it was almost impossible to get the temperature below 80 before installation but now was the same temperature as the rest of the house and I noticed that the A/C was cycling off for longer periods of time.

I am really pleased with how they worked and have ordered the EZ Snap shades for my weekend home in upstate NY.

Our usage of the AC has gone down
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

Hi EZ Snap Team,

We installed EZ Snap on our skylight in the entry way, which is about 55"x55".

We've lived at our home for about 7 years and every summer that skylight makes our living room much hotter than it needs to be. We love the natural light, but it gets hot during summer, and our electricity bill shows!

We installed the EZ Snap (which was VERY simple) a few months ago and our AC is very happy with us! Our usage of the AC has gone down and our electricity bill has gone down a bit as well.

Best investment; should've done it years ago!! Thank you times a million!!

Keeps the hot sun out of my kitchen.
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

I was looking into a shade for my skylight when I came across EZ Snap website. I liked the thought of this better than a shade that I needed a pole to open and close.

EZ Snap website is very informative and easy to use.

Following directions of measuring and ordering was simple. It arrived quickly and was easy to install. Made an error on the type of pins I needed and emailed them and they corrected the order for me no questions asked.

It works! It keeps the hot sun out of my kitchen.

It is a little bit darker in the room and takes some getting used to but definitely keeps the heat out. I'm not sure if I had chosen the white screen it would allow more light.

Karen

Wish I had gotten these years ago!
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

These screens were very easy to install and have made a huge difference to the temperature of my home. I used it over 4 skylights that used to make one half of my house SEVERAL degrees warmer than the other half. Now that the EZ Snap shades are up, I had to INCREASE the temperature in my house to keep from getting cold!

In addition, I had extra fabric, so I installed it over my kitchen windows. I used to have to wear sunglasses to do the dishes early in the morning, but no more! I wish I had gotten these years ago!

Cut the heat immediately
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

EZ Snap was a snap. My daughter installed it on our skylights. I thought we would need a handy man, but the instructions were very clear and our daughter said “I can do it” and she did!

It cut the heat immediately from the skylights.

We live in a very hot climate and it made our kitchen almost unbearable in the afternoon. Now it is great.

The light is still good but very diffused and the difference in the temperature is amazing.

Can’t recommend enough. One happy customer. Just wish I had known about EZ Snap sooner.

Birdena

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for reporting back. Nice to know that EZ Snap is keeping your kitchen cooler!

Amazing difference in the temperature
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shade

We have two skylights in our NW Ohio home. This brutal summer got me searching the internet for some sort of shade to block the heat from coming in our kitchen and family room and cut our air conditioning bill. Our local Lowe’s Hardware store recommended the film you place on from the inside. No way …we dealt with that mess years ago and ended up with a sticky mess on the old windows. We have since replaced all of the windows in the house.

I found your website and read up on it… sounded pretty easy but after watching your video and another customer video on YouTube we were sold. EZ Snap sounded like it may do the trick, so we had our sons climb out on the roof and get the measurements.

We placed our order and our shipment arrived very promptly.

We waited for a cooler summer morning to clean the areas and install the 3M sticker posts. That was easy. We let them cure until the next morning and the boys went out to install the mesh and snaps.

Our sons were shocked at how simple it really was. Usually when you attempt a job it’s always much harder than it seems.

The only problem was that I forgot the steps to assure the right amount of snaps. No problem there… I am placing an order for the balance of what we need to place between the installed snaps we have in place.

Both skylights are protected by other roof lines from the winds we get. The 40 mph wind we got a couple of days after insulation didn’t budge the covers even without the recommended snaps.

This installation has made an amazing difference in the temperature of our two rooms. You can still, amazingly, see through the screens fine and a cool sunbeam will reach the floors without the heat and glare.

We wish we would have found these years ago! Thank you EZ Snap for your great product!

Kitchen is noticeably cooler by several degrees
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

I have several flat skylights in my kitchen that are lovely for letting in some natural light, but make the room absolutely miserable and turn the kitchen into a greenhouse in the heat of the summer. After weeks of researching skylight blinds, window tints, and stick-on shades, I feel lucky to have come across EZ Snap.

Now, I’m an amateur when it comes to DIY home projects, but the instructions for measuring the skylights for the material were clear and simple to follow. The install was also super easy. Remember to follow the advice of ‘measure twice, cut once’ because the last thing you want is for the cut material to not fit over the skylight. I was comfortable climbing up and down my gently sloped roof to measure and then install the material, but if you have a steep roof you may want to err on the side of caution and find a roofer friend or handy-person who can install this for you.

My kitchen is noticeably cooler by several degrees after the install, and I’m thrilled. There is still a lot of natural light coming into the room but the heat has been cut significantly. We have had a couple storms and heavy rainfall since I put up the shades but nothing has come loose due to the elements.

If the DIY aspects of a skylight shade project excite you, and you enjoy the feeling of satisfaction when your electricity bill is suddenly lower than it’s ever been in the summer, then EZ Snap is the way to go!

Great product, easy to install, five stars!

A good product overall.
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

The EZ Snap shades are very easy to install, and the website is very helpful with lots of information.

My one complaint is that the stainless screw sets also come with plastic caps and pins. Unfortunately, I did not read the description thoroughly enough or it could be more explicit. I had existing stainless studs installed already, so I now have a lot extra of those, and I miscalculated how many of the adhesive studs I needed, so not enough of those. If I had known, I would have ordered differently.

A good product overall.

Affordable and Simple
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

I am not completing this review as part of the contest, but because I was a skeptical believer at first. I purchased two EZ Snap screens for my two flat skylights. I followed the instructions completely as instructed on the first EZ snap window. On my second skylight, because I was on the roof, I attached the devices on the window frame as instructed, but then changed the installation snapping the next two pieces together before snapping them into the devices attached to the window frame. The devices are well made and very snug making snapping them together while on the roof challenging.

The results are immediate. I LOVE them! You can feel how much they cool your room immediately lowering your utility bills. They entire system is well made and durable. The shades provide a bright cloudy atmosphere indoor, but the ability to see through the skylight.

I rarely take the time to complete a product review and did not complete this review until the EZ snaps had been on the skylights for 3 months. The EZ snap has endured heavy rains, strong winds and hail with out any changes to the structure of the EZ snaps. The only thing that I did not think about was the leaves that would attach to the EZ snap screen. With stronger winds, most of these had blown off.

I strongly encourage anyone looking to decrease the summer suns heat from entering their room to make this affordable and simple installation to their skylights.

Skylight Shade Review Photos from Debbie MSkylight Shade Review Photos from Debbie M Inside View

Hello! It is my pleasure to send my review to your company.

I purchased your five foot kit to cover two skylights.

The old Andersen skylights no longer opened and when I removed the interior screens the sunlight through them in our family room was unbearable.

I am a very capable sixty year old female who hates heights!! Being a ‘Jill of all-trades’ I decided that I could get this done; just wish it was ground-level work.

Using an extension ladder on my deck I went up on the roof two evenings in a row. The first evening was to apply the bases and then 24 hours later finished up with the mesh application following the excellent instructions provided.

I have attached two pictures – one showing my new interior view and the other showing the exterior wrapped skylights.

I highly recommend this product as it is super easy to install, very cost effective and I am sure I will be saving additional monies on my electric bill!

Happy to be safely off the roof, (LOL)

Cooled my sunroom by 15 degrees
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

Wow very pleased with final results!

The ease of installation and the quality of material. Everything I ordered was present.

Very simple process from prepping of surface, cutting material, attaching snaps and cover. It took me approximately 2 1/2 hours from start to finish.

It has cooled my sunroom by 15 degrees or more. I have recommended EZ snap to some friends who are looking for a similar solution.

Less costly solution to our issues
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

Looking for a solution to reduce the amount of heat and sunshine coming through our skylight, we found your product on the Internet with great reviews.

It was a significantly less costly solution to our issues, and we decided to give it a try.

Installing it was relatively easy and we have been very pleased.

Prior to the installation, we could walk under the skylight, and feel the intense heat. Now we don’t feel that heat, and the light is diffused.

We haven’t had it long enough to see if the savings will be reflected in our electric bill. We saved nearly a thousand dollars from the solution we nearly went with, a honeycomb roller shade...fingers crossed!

Very happy with the purchase
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

We got EZ exterior window shades for our 3 skylight windows. Before ordering, we called the customer service for some questions, and the person who answered the phone was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Once we got the products, my husband put the adhesive studs on the skylight windows. Super easy! It took him less than 1 hour to put the studs on all 3 windows on the roof. After waiting for at least 24 hours, as instructed, he put the shade screen on the windows, again in about 1 hour. He said it was very easy.

Now how do we feel about it? We love it! Before the installation, our living room/kitchen can be really hot especially in the afternoon in summer when the sun hits the floor directly through the windows for few hours. Now with the shades, although the room still gets warmer, the temperature does not go up as much as it used to be. Definitely we are saving some energy bills. We also like that the shades darken the room but not completely block the sunlight.

Before we got the EZ exterior window shades, we explored the option of motorized blinds on our skylight windows. But it is very costly, and we heard a lot of trouble with them such as the remote stops working after a season. We chose EX exterior window shades, because, hopefully, they will last long, and we can take them off in winter/fall, if we want.

So far, we enjoy the shades every day, and we are very happy with the purchase.

It does everything they say!
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shade

I bought the smallest skylight shade kit. It was incredibly easy to install. I bought the white fabric and it allows a pleasant filtered light to come in but cuts the heat incredibly. I think it took me about 25 minutes to install the skylight shade and that included washing the skylight and waiting for the primer to dry. What a great product!

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the 5 Star Review Philip!

Highly Recommend
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

Hi there,

I purchased easy snap skylight covers several weeks ago but I did not have them put up until yesterday.

I wish I had bought this product years ago.

The second floor of my small house was unbearably hot related to four skylights. I was always reluctant to cover the skylights because I did not want the second floor to be dark but after a few heatwaves I decided something had to be done.

This is the first time during the summer I have not had an approximately 5°C difference between the main floor on the second floor during hot part of the day. The difference is astonishing.

Also, it has not made the 2nd floor very dark.

I really feel silly for not doing this a long time ago.

I would highly recommend this product to anyone suffering through skylight related heat problems.

M. Adrain

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the recommendation. Much appreciated.

We love the EZ Snap product.

We bought a 15 ft kit to do 6 skylights. EZ Snap sent us a cutting guide and it was so easy to cut them to size and install the panels.

It has helped to keep the hot direct sunlight from heating up our home, tremendously.

They do not block the view of the sky and they look fine from the inside.

We are very happy with this product and would highly recommend it to others.

Definite decrease of heat in the house
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

EZ Snap Skylight Shade Review Photos from Diana E

I live here in Tucson, Arizona and the summer heat from the skylights was horrible. Many days of 105 and over. I have 5 skylights that have domes.

I measured each skylight, then cleaned the sides of the frames as they were covered with roof coating. Applied the snaps and then placed suction cups on top as recommended for dome skylight and then placed my self-cut-to-size material onto skylights, trimmed off excess material.

I love them and there is a definite decrease of heat in the house. I also don’t have to worry about my clothes fading in the sun from the closet skylight.

I plan on keeping them on year round. Love them. Thousands cheaper than replacing skylights with expensive energy reducing skylights.

Also customer service was excellent and promptly answered any questions I had about installation.

Diana E.

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Diana... glad that EZ Snap is keeping you cool in Tucson!

Well worth the investment
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

We installed our EZ Snap shades on three of our skylights in our new-to-us 1982 house.

It has made a huge difference in the amount of heat coming in from the skylights.

We are very pleased with the results of the shades.

It was not easy to put them up, particularly because we were installing them over skylights, two of which we had to be on the roof and it felt really precarious. The snaps are hard to snap as they are pretty tight, although that means they will stay put for a long time.

Overall, I would say it was well worth the investment and effort to reduce the heat coming into our home!

Recommended... does not feel as hot now.
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

I really think EZ Snap made a difference to the two skylights in our living room.

The sun shined in making bright sun spots that tracked across the room with the sun's movement.

The skylights also made the room feel hotter than any other room in the house due to the general heat let through.

Also it was annoying to have the sun spot right in your face on the couch, during certain times.

Now, after putting up the EZ Snap, the sun spots still show but are less intense and do not affect the room temp like before. Standing in the sun spot does not feel as hot now.

I'm pretty happy with the install and it wasn't too bad installing. Just have to plan ahead and remember to double check measurements.

I would recommend it to anyone I know who would have the same issue like me, or other windows related issues.

Simon

Much Cooler in Our House
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

My contractor was less than enthusiastic about my order with EZ Snap. He had worked with similar products and snickered at the prospect that the installation would be simple. He installed the screen on two skylights in about 30 minutes. He said the installation went well and used an intuitive design to tack down the screen. He was impressed and that is not easily accomplished.

We all were excited that it was not like living in a cave after the installation of the screen. We get plenty of sunshine and it is much cooler in our house. That is very important when living in the Arizona desert.

Your product is everything you said it would be and more! Thank you.

I highly recommend these for skylights
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

Wow! I purchased the EZ Snap screens to help minimize the sunlight that was entering through our two skylights. I was skeptical of how simple and effective the EZ Snap screens would be.

They reduced the incoming sunlight making the temperature in the living room much more comfortable. The reduced sunlight will also reduce the fading of our couches.

The installation was an easy two step process. Simply lay out the location of the snaps. Prime with the available priming pen and adhere the snap base.

After a while (I waited 24 hours) return with cut screens, place pin onto snap and install screen. Place pin cap to secure screen in place. Then enjoy.

The view out of the skylights is minimally noticeable.

I highly recommend these for skylights and they are considerably less expensive than the alternatives such as shades.

Glen Meny

Excellent Product
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

Super easy to install.

I had quotes to remove my skylight completely. It was too bright and too hot.

I tried the easy snap screen and I am glad I did. It lets plenty of light through without the heat or blinding reflections.

The installation with the primer was easy, clean and shows no signs of coming undone. Excellent product.

EZ Snap Skylight Review Photo from John B - Before EZ Snap Skylight Review Photo from John B


 

Not easy to find skylight covers that work. UV rays, solar heat, hurricanes, and cheap materials have put more than a few companies out of business.

I was a bit wary of EZSnap, but after reading the literature, and talking to their tech guy, I thought it was worth a try.

My skylights were heating up our top floor condo like an attic.

Hired a handyman to install them (I don't do roofs anymore), it took him about 1 hour each skylight.

Tucked the fabric under and pinned every 5 inches, except 1 inch on the corners. (We're in FL hurricane paths).
The results are great so far. Pleased with the installation, and the filter effect inside is noticeable but not radical.
It is definitely working in regard to solar heat and UV protection.

Time will tell on wear and tear, and hurricane winds.

My handyman was equally impressed. He said those stick-up fasteners really are strong, and the fabric easy to work with. See my pics.

Installed them with relative ease.
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

I live in Florida, and needless to say the summer sun can be brutal.

I have 2 large skylights in my living room.

Not wanting to replace them at great expense, I was looking on you tube and came across a video of a guy installing EZ Snap on his skylights.

I ordered, received and my son installed them with relative ease.

The covers filter the light, but do not make the room dark. I will give a follow up review at a later time to let you know how they hold up.

Daily average of 89 degrees to an average of 75 degrees.
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

Hi there! I absolutely love your products - here is my review:

I purchased EZ Snap as a last ditch effort to avoid having to replace a large, old skylight in our new home which was working more like a magnifying glass - causing our upstairs to become unbearably hot and extremely expensive to cool down.

I have to admit, I made this purchase with low expectations - having been burned before with products advertising they were "as seen on Shark Tank" but I have been incredibly happy with the results.

Besides being super easy to install, it has made a greater difference than I could have hoped for with our upstairs going from a daily average of 89 degrees to an average of 75 degrees.

We're also saving thousands of dollars because we don't have to move forward with a skylight replacement. I highly recommend this product!

Best,
Michele

EZ Snap® Team - Glad to hear EZ Snap is keeping cooler Michele. Thanks for letting us know!

Review of EZ Snap Shade Screen used on two Velux skylights
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

While I was refinishing my two skylight wells, this summer, I was amazed at the solar heat gain coming in through the skylights. It was so hot as to make it impossible for me to be trying to work up there! I thought the skylights' coated glass was supposed to be enough to manage the heat but it clearly was not up to the task. I looked at various interior shade systems but began looking for a product that would *deal with the heat before it gets into the house*. I did find some interesting exterior motorized shading systems but they were big, expensive, complicated, ugly and required power to operate. I also found an opaque "cover" type product with a draw string to hold it in place. It was simple and should be effective but they are ugly from outside and inside and admit no light at
all.

I then came upon the EZ Snap product and it seemed to be just what I needed! It is very effective and the skylights are fully functional. You can see through them and they can still be opened. EZ Snap Shade Screens are very easy to install and look great too besides being *very reasonably priced*. I ordered the 7 foot kit to do both of my skylights and had relatively little waste.

The installation was pretty EZ! I measured and used the included white pencil to mark out the skylight rectangles on the floor. I cut them out leaving a generous allowance to trim off as a final step. Then I went up and washed and dried the skylights. I followed up with 99% pure alcohol to clean the skylight frames, marked the locations for the snaps and installed them. It was all pretty simple. (I picked a cool, overcast day.) I had ordered two of the primer pens thinking that would be more than enough but I ran out after priming about a third of the snaps on each skylight. I went ahead and finished the rest without primer and they seem fine. I would not bother with the primer pens if I were to do it again. I had to put the snaps on the sides of the skylight frames because the tops are all curved surfaces. In retrospect, I think this is best anyway since it looks best, is most secure and there is no way for leaves or whatever to blow under between the glass and shade screen. I bought extra snaps and installed them about 4-3/4" apart if I recall correctly. Attaching the screen to the snaps was easy enough and I just trimmed off the excess screen with sharp scissors by following along the frame.

With the EZ Snap sun screens there is much, much less heat coming in to my home. The rooms with skylights are more comfortable and I expect the air conditioning has run less too. A likely bonus is the skylight wells may not need refinishing again since they get additional protection from the sun's rays. The light admitted is much less but it is enough and you can still see through the skylights. I left my interior screens in place because my skylights open up. As you can see, because you are looking through both the inside screen and the exterior sun shade screen, you do get a "moire" visual pattern effect. I do not find it objectionable and it does not happen if the inside screen is removed. (The picture was taken just before sunset without any other lighting on in the room.) I have not decided yet as to whether or not to leave the EZ Snap sun screens in place for the winter.

Overall I find EZ Snap Shade Screen to be a super product! It provides an effective, good looking, high quality product at a great price and simple enough to be able to do yourself.

I am located near Windsor, Ontario, Canada and EZ Snap was received delivery within just a few days of ordering online.

I will never go back to interior skylight blinds.
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

EZ Snap skylights shades survived Hurricane Dorian. Nova Scotia was hit by Dorian back in September. There were trees down everywhere and power outages, but we still had our five EZ Snap skylight exterior shades.

Our decision to purchase exterior shades resulted when one of our interior electric blinds had stopped working. To replace it was going to involve manufacturing and shipping from Denmark at an exorbitant cost.

Luckily, EZ Snap came to our rescue with their superior product that I found online.

The staff were so helpful making sure I had everything required to install and the order shipped quickly.

Installation was a breeze.

Due to the wind conditions in Nova Scotia, I requested extra fasteners. Troy set up a design for me at 10” apart.

As advertised, the shades also reduce heat which made our kitchen and den tolerable all summer. I will never go back to interior skylight blinds.

Thank you EZ Snap. I wish you continued success and I highly endorse your product.

Installing the EZ Snap shade was a breeze
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

We are thrilled at the results of the EZ Snap window shade.

We have two west-facing skylights that heat the kitchen and great room to a level almost taxing our AC system.

Installing the EZ Snap shade was a breeze - very easy with two people, even when considering that we were dealing with skylights on an 8/12 roof rather than windows.

The product provided instant results - the rooms affected never spiked in temperature during the day and the AC easily kept all living spaces cool.

Removing the shades in the Fall also was a snap!

I have since recommended the product to several people and will definitely order the product again as we are contemplating a move to a more southerly location.

This is a great product - I give it 5 stars!

Regards,

Ken

They were a breeze to install and work great.
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

I purchased EZ Snaps to cover my skylights.

We lost our shade trees and the heat coming through the 4 large skylights was unbearable.

After quite a bit of research, I decided to go with the EZ Snap screen system. Best decision ever!

They were a breeze to install and work great.

The AC was able to keep the house comfortable even on 90+ degree days. I also noticed the furniture was no longer baking in the sun.

I would recommend EZ Snap to anyone looking for a good system to protect their home from heat and sun damage.

Thank you for making the summer months bearable once again.

Actually better than I imagined.
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

I ordered mesh for 2 skylights and have been enjoying the benefits for the past 3 weeks - including some steamy hot spells. I am grateful and relieved for the added comfort they provide.

I was hopeful these shades would make a difference but the reality is actually better than I imagined.

I appreciate the patience of Troy Assaly walking me through the installation process and for helping me decide how to proceed. However, we were not able to use the snaps provided to separate the mesh from the skylights as there was not enough mesh to do so. Even though the dimensions given were accurate there was no accounting for the height of the bubble in the skylights.

Still the outcome is very satisfying and I am happy with the results. Thanks for keeping me cool.

Keffi

Great product, great people to work with...
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

I was getting a fierce reflection from my skylights onto my new vinyl siding, actually caused the siding to warp!

I was less than pleased and pretty confused until my contractor pointed me to EZ Snap, I called, they explained, I ordered, contractor installed, problem solved!

It was that easy, wish all of my homeowner issues could be so simple and effectively solved. Great product, great people to work with, who could ask for more.

My electric bill was about 30% lower than the same month last year.
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

Hello;

I moved into my current home 4 years ago. While I admit to being warm-natured, the temperature in the master bath and master bedroom was much higher than in the rest of the house. You could instantly feel the difference walking into the bedroom. In west Texas, this uncomfortable situation extends throughout 8 to 9 months of the year. With the thermostat set on 68 degrees, the rest of the house was 68 degrees, but the master bathroom was constantly at 85 degrees or higher, making getting dressed or applying make-up a sweaty and somewhat futile experience.

The culprit? a west-facing giant skylight. Oscillating fans barely made a dent in the heat. Texas sun is hot and unforgiving, and the skylight actually magnified the heat. Sleeping in that bedroom was miserably hot and I would find myself getting up in the middle of the night to move to the sofa in the living room. I was seriously considering moving.

Then I saw an ad for ezsnapdirect. I called and spoke to a customer service rep who answered all of my questions and explained everything. I decided to order an EZ Snap cover for that skylight. My handyman put it on in no time, since the installation requires no tools or drilling.

I had relief immediately. It was so much cooler in there than it was before the screen was installed. The wonderful light still came in, but the heat was reduced significantly.

Now I can sleep at night, get showered and dressed without sweating and put on make-up without it running off.

On top of that, my electric bill was about 30% lower than the same month last year. I have to say that most advertised products that I have tried have not worked as claimed. Happily, this is an exception. It worked so much better than I had expected. Also, the price was very affordable and my handy man charged next to nothing to put it on my very steep roof. I couldn’t be more pleased and would recommend this to anyone with a skylight. I will do my west-facing windows next and see how much more I can save on my electric bill.

Sincerely,

Rebecca Coomer

Drastically reduced the amount of heat
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

I just wanted to report back on the installation of my EZ Snap Skylight Shade.

It went well... first I laid out where the buttons would go. Then installed them.

Waiting for 24 hours for the buttons to secure themselves, I measured out the material and installed it probably within an hour.

This has drastically reduced the amount of heat that normally came in without EZ Snap.

Thanks,
Mike

Easy to install by myself
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

I installed these in early July in Atlanta, where it was already hot.

They were easy to install by myself and it didn’t take long at all.

I did notice the room looking a little darker but it is clear to look out of them. However, I did not have a noticeable change in the heat in the room.

I measured the temperature inside several days before, a few times right before, and a few times after, and there was no noticeable improvement.

Trish

EZ Snap® Team - Thank you for your feedback. Inside temperatures are affected by all sources of heat including skylights and windows. In your case, it may be necessary to install shades on more than just two small skylights.

Highly recommend this product
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

Hello EZ Snap,

We here at Wahlco Inc. have several very large skylights that were letting in too much light for our engineering team to work in a comfortable environment.

I researched your product and found the solution to our issue.

After speaking extensively with Troy Assaly regarding our issue here at Wahlco, he provided a solution offering the 30 Ft. X 5 Ft. Exterior Skylight Blackout Shade Kit, that fixed our Issue with the engineering team and provided very satisfying results.

I have attached various photos for the before and after results that definitely improved our extreme sun light issue and satisfied our engineering group.

I would highly recommend this product for any skylight issues that customers may have.

Sincerely,
Mark Bird, Senior Buyer

Install was a breeze, took me less than 30 minutes.
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

I’ve lived in my home for over ten years and it wasn’t until recently, while installing a new ceiling fan below my skylights, that I noticed how much heat comes through and bakes the inside of my house.

I have a split level and live in Colorado so it is a constant challenge to keep my upstairs cool.

If you can cut a piece of paper after marking a straight line, you can install these. Install was a breeze, took me less than 30 minutes and the look is nice and clean.

They do shade the inside more than I was expecting but I don’t mind because they work great!

Just had a wicked hail and wind storm yesterday and they are still kicking.

I went with the stick on attachments and just made sure to clean the surface with alcohol prior to application of the 3m backed pads.

I have and will continue to recommend this product to family and friends.

At least 10° cooler in my kitchen.
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

I Received the EZ snap set in my mailbox. I should have ordered earlier in the year, but late is better than never.

The difference the screens make on my skylights is at least 10° cooler in my kitchen.

My grandson climbed on our gable roof, cleaned the skylight frames, and installed the easy snaps along with the screening. It took a while but that was mainly because of the roof slope.

We are very pleased and they seem to be very secure. I can write more when they are on after a year or more.

Thank you EZ Snap!

A fraction of the cost of other options.
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

We have a small town coffee shop in our building and I was informed that they were receiving too much sunshine through a skylight. This sunshine was drying out their baked goods and overheating the baristas.

After a little bit of research and reading other reviews I decided on trying out EZ Snap®. The product has done exactly as I would hoped and at a fraction of the cost of other options.

I would highly recommend this product for anyone that has too much solar heat coming in but doesn’t want to block it all out.

Delighted by the heat reduction.
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

After searching and searching for a 'temporary' but effective, still see outside, window covering for our skylights, we happily came across the EZ Snap system.

We needed to reduce the summer heat coming in from our 2 skylights. These are in our favorite room that we normally close off from the main house during the summer due to excessive heat and not wanting to use our air conditioner to dissipate it and have the rest of the house freezing.

The EZ Snap system was EAZY to install and we are really delighted by the heat reduction from having the skylights covered. AND we can still see the daytime AND nighttime sky which was mandatory for us. That's why we put in skylights!!

And it's great that we can remove them for winter. They will last a lot longer not having them subject to the outside elements 365 days a year!

Thank you for a wonderful product that works as advertised!

What a difference...
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

It has been several summer weeks since I installed my EZ Snap skylight screens.

What a difference they have made in the overall comfort in our home.

No more glaring sunlight and large A/C bills. Our A/C costs have dropped 10% easily so these screens will be paid for in no time.

Delivery was quick and installation is - no pun intended - a snap!

A great product!

Works as Advertised
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

I know you won't print this, but just to get it off my chest...

The EZ Snap product works as advertised. The toughest part of installation is getting on the roof.

However, seldom in my 66 years have I encountered worse customer service. I will never buy this product again, and for those that have asked me, I've recommended they do the same.

I ordered the wrong fasteners. My mistake. When I called to get them exchanged, it was suggested that I spend another $20.00 plus shipping from Canada to get the correct ones. That's asked if I couldn't just exchange the ones that I had for the others. I was told I could, but that they wouldn't send the others until I returned the tiny bag of screws, about $4.00 worth at my local hardware store. When I said I might just return the whole thing and start over, I was informed that it would cost me shipping to Canada, PLUS a 25% restocking fee! That's for a product that was virtually unopened, except for discovering I'd chosen the wrong fasteners.

I did the exchange. I paid the freight (which is understandable) but the whole experience left me really disliking their business practices.

There you have it!

Kevin

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your candid feedback. EZ Snap strives for perfect customer service, but we also have a return policy that is printed on our website. It us unfortunate that you ordered the wrong type of fasteners for your project. As promised, we did send the correct fasteners as soon as we received your return.

The room immediately felt cooler and still let plenty of light in.
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

We recently moved to a house that had an atrium with eight large skylights and, like most skylights, they can be too much of a good thing - light and heat. Our air conditioner would run non-stop on sunny hot days in the summer and watching tv with all that light wasn't enjoyable.

To solve these issues I was considering everything from electric shades ($12,000), to powered indoor or outdoor awnings ($6,000), to the EZ Snap shades ($700). My concern with the EZ Snap product was that they would be too dark or too light. A company rep described the tint as "like putting sunglasses on your skylights" - I couldn't agree more and wouldn't want to change it in either direction.

My install had a bit of a challenge in that the top and bottom of the skylights are not a 100% flat surface, using screws to fasten the shades would have solved that issue but I didn't want to drill that many holes in the skylight.

I used the adhesive studs system and haven't had any issues even after 5 thunderstorms with strong winds. I also found that cutting the shade after I had fastened it to the skylight made it easier to ensure it was cut properly to length and straight, this probably isn't necessary with smaller skylights.

The result was noticeable immediately after coming off the roof from install - the room immediately felt cooler and still let plenty of light in without being super bright.

My wife and I love it, we can spend all day in the atrium and we can still see the stars at night.

Great product and a great value!

Results were better than expected.
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

Everything arrived from EZ Snap exactly as expected, and perfectly on time.

I carefully measured the skylights on the roof (twice) and then returned to Terra firma so to safely cut the fabric, having measured and checked (twice). Returning up to the roof to install before it got too hot.

Each skylight took about 15 minutes total to finish and the install was as simple as the very helpful video implied. I was surprised that the job was so easy but happier still that the results were better than expected.

It was hard to see how we would lose so little light yet achieve the dramatic cooling effect EZ Snap advertised.

We have extremely poor windows that we are due to replace them all in a matter of weeks, however the HVAC company installing refrigerated air, made clear, that "the windows will help" but you also need to address those skylights, because the heat ingress from them is immense".

We looked at the options and settled on EZ Snap and have zero regrets or hesitation recommending EZ Snap because their innovative solution is reasonably priced, easy to install and does exactly what they advertise and maybe more.

Very happy with the product
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

Ordering this for my skylight was the best investment to date. I’m so upset that I didn’t take before and after photos.

Our upper floor would heat up soooo much that the floor even got warm to the touch.

The screen has made a significant difference temperature wise.

I have 2 sets of windows that I will definitely be buying for next as the season is coming to an end.

Very easy to install and comes with everything you need.

Very happy with the product, definitely a thumbs up 👍🏻

Excellent Quality
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

My experience with EZ Snap skylight screens was excellent at every stage of the process.

Instructions from the website for calculating exactly which kit I would need were clear and very helpful, ordering from the website was easy and secure, I received my order in less than 48 hours and the installation instructions that arrived with my order were simple and exact.

I had four skylights to cover and took the time to follow the installation instructions carefully.

Moreover, the quality of all of the materials (screen and studs) is excellent. Suffice to say, I am absolutely thrilled with the results.

I chose the black screen colour which does not block my view but significantly reduces the solar heat entering my home.

I am a short in height and very small in size woman who handled this project alone and with ease.

Thank you for your product and excellent service as I now have a cooler home in summer and have completed a job that looks excellent from the outside and inside of my home.

Uninsulated Sunroom
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

I ordered the EZ Snap screening to cut down on the heat in my sunroom, which has a row of six 2 X 5 ft skylights.

The room is uninsulated, so it's going to be hot in there on a hot day no matter what, but it gets up to almost 120 degrees on a sunny summer day with nothing covering the skylights.

In the past, I've strung fabric on tension rods to act as curtains, and that helped to keep it in the 90s.

I was hoping the EZ Snap screens would be even better, since they (supposedly) keep the heat from coming through the glass in the first place, but it still gets to almost 110 in there after putting the screens on (which took me hours up on the roof).

I'm disappointed that they don't do a better job than the fabric that I was putting on the inside of the glass. Maybe if I use both it will keep it more tolerable in there.

mel[email protected]

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your comments Mel. Exterior Shades are far more efficient than Interior Shades. In your case, however, the uninsulated roof in direct sun is likely erasing any efficiency gained from the Exterior Shades.

Our rooms are at least 10 degrees cooler.
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

My husband and I moved into a manufactured home in March. It has 3 skylights. They were great in the winter, with the sun coming in and heating up our rooms.

When summer came with 90 degree temps, the skylights weren’t so great. Our house was so hot, and our air conditioner could barely keep up.

I did research and found the EZ Snap company.

We ordered screens for all 3 skylights. We love them!! They let the light in, but keep the heat out.

Our rooms are at least 10 degrees cooler. It is such a big difference.

When it’s 90 outside, our house is a comfortable 72. It used to be close to 80 degrees inside.

EZ Snap products really work. We are telling all of our friends.

Saving about $40 a month on electricity.
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

I installed EZ Snap on two 9’ long by 3’ skylights, 16” roof truss, using the 10’ Exterior Skylight Shade Kit. I folded the 6’ wide fabric in half and cut it 10’ long, 3’ wide, using the fabric cutter.

Then I got on the roof, installed the suction cups with a circle of clear caulking, down the middle of the concave skylight each a foot apart. I let that dry for 12 hours and the next day I put the fabric over the skylight with a little bit hanging down at the bottom of the skylight closest to the eves trough and had most of the excess fabric at the top so it wouldn’t roll off the roof.

I had prepared the studs by removing the wax paper and spinning the self-tapping screws in the stud. This way you can hold the stud and spin the self-tapping screw. Next | got on the roof with my impact driver, Phillips bit, should be using Robinson self-tapping screws from Canada they stay on the bit much better. Then I self-tapped the two bottom corner studs and one in the center of the bottom. Then I started on the sides, starting at the top corner working my way down using the length of the impact driver as a measuring tool, 8” to 10”, keeping the fabric centered on both sides. After installing a stud I would snap the pin over the stud, snug up the fabric over the pin and cap it.

We have had winds since installation that have blown the shingles off the neighbours roof but the product has had no damage. We have had hail, rain and a few hot days.

The product reduces the UV inside over 90%, we can now sit on the couch in direct sunlight without getting a suntan or needing to wear a baseball cap. It’s like being in the shade under a tree.

Previous years we needed to install a portable, 11,000 BTU air conditioner but not this year, saving about $40 a month on electricity.

26 years in this house and we can’t believe we lived here this long without this product.

Now we'll pop off the pins in the fall, when the temperatures hit zero C and store the fabric inside till it warms up in the spring. Then up on the roof in the spring and re-install the fabric by popping the pins back on the studs.

Great product and the neighbours keep asking what is that?

Thanks

Relief at last!
EZ Snap Product: Skylight shade

We have an 11x12 sunroof over the centre of our house. Room is a fitness room/grandkid's playroom. The room gets so hot in the summer it is unusable.

We got quotes for an interior blind system but $5000 wasn't going to work for us! We found EZ Snap online and it was the best money we have ever spent!

The room is 10 degrees cooler and now pleasant to be in.

I can't say enough about the excellent customer service from Troy, the fast shipping and delivery to our door, the quality product and the ease to install it.

A BIG recommendation from me! THANK YOU!

skylight dimming
EZ Snap Product: skylight shade

I wanted to wait until the sun was close to it's highest point to access the effectiveness and must say I'm very impressed with the results.

My only complaint would be regarding pricing/invoicing. My invoice including applicable taxes was as expected but i used my MasterCard to purchase and was accessed U.S. exchange on my monies, A - not reflected on my invoice... B - not clearly indicated as U.S. Funds on the website.

Otherwise keeping it cool.

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Les. We've added a bold "All prices are in US dollars" note to the bottom of every invoice. Additionally, we have increased the prominence of the US dollar pricing in our checkout process.

LOOOOOVE IT!
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shade!

We have gorgeous skylights but because of the way they were built they let a lot of direct sunlight into the house, making the living room totally uncomfortable in day time. Enter ez-snap and life is so much better, we are really enjoying our living room so much better now!

Thank you!

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review Mira... glad we could help!

Installed Skylight Shades
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shade

Just installed our Ezsnap mesh on our skylight today.

Had to wait as we have had numerous days of rain and very high heat and heat index days. So should not be able to tell until a few days have passed to see if your product does all it is advertised to do!

Will review again after a few days have passed.

Thanks, Steve F.

EZ Snap® Team - We appreciate the update Steve. Thank you.

Even my wife was impressed.
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

It’s nice to find a product that actually works as advertised.

EZ Snap was recommended to us by a friend who had ordered some skylight shade screens.

It was easy to install. I did it myself in less than one hour total time, and that included cutting the screen up on the roof.

Even my wife was impressed. We have noticed a considerable difference in the amount of heat in the house around the skylight area.

Thanks for a great product!

Skylight Shade Installation was a Breeze
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

As a child I always looked forward to the warm weather. However, as an adult and the owner of a home with sky lights, the summer months were dreadfully uncomfortable... not to mention extremely expensive when running the air conditioner nonstop from May through late September!

After looking through dozens of expensive alternatives I stumbled onto an advertisement for the EZ Snap Skylight Shades and figured I'd give it a try.

Not only was the customer service extremely helpful when choosing what kit to order but the installation was a breeze!

Now instead of living like an ant under a magnifying glass in my own home I finally get to enjoy the summer months again and start saving money on my electric bill!

Bert Amerman,
Proud homeowner of the EZ Snap Skylight Shade system.

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Bert. Glad the Skylight Shades are working well for you.

Perfect room darkener for bedroom skylight
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

We have a skylight in my daughter's bedroom, which let in too much light to let them sleep.



We used to have a room darkener fabric attached by velcro to cover the skylight area from the interior. It didn't look great, and it started falling down.



Thankfully with some quick research online, I found this fabulous product. We got the room darkening product by notating it in the order notes.



It's the ideal solution - it was inexpensive, provided room darkening and room cooling for a bedroom that has a skylight that the previous owner's of the house installed. Plus, it was really easy to install!

EZ Snap® Team - Thank you Amber. Great to hear that EZ Snap is working for you.

Heat Reduced Dramatically
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

Hi,

I wanted you to know how happy I am with the screens used to cover the skylights and windows.

The heat coming from the skylights has been reduced dramatically and since the weather has been in the 30's it has made such a huge difference...

Lesa

EZ Snap® Team - Glad to hear EZ Snap Shades are working for you.

Very Impressed with Wind Resistance
EZ Snap Product: Skylight Shades

I don’t know if you followed the weather in Alberta last weekend but we had sustained winds gusting from 50 to 80 km/h for three straight days.

My skylight shades were exposed directly to the wind. I was positive they would give way at some point. I was wrong. I’m very impressed they held up to gale force winds.

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Fred. We appreciate hearing from happy customers like you.

Easy Installation... wish I would have installed years ago

EZ Snap Skylight Shade Review Photos
Just thought you’d like to see a few photos of my installation.

I got up early while it was still cool and it only took me about 15 minutes to put the fabric on by myself. I had installed the studs a few days earlier...

It was a lot easier than I thought.

We have a hot week ahead of us so am looking forward to seeing how they perform.

Update…

Our sunroom had been getting over 30C on hot days. With the covers in place it hasn’t been over 24C so they have reduced the heat entering considerably.

I wish I would have installed them years ago.

Fred

Place approximately 12 inches apart on the lens of the skylight.

AirFlo™ Spacers are recommended for all Dome Skylights or Skylights with Plastic Lens.

To use: Place the spacers approximately 12 inches apart or how every many
would be required to keep the mesh from laying on the skylight lens.

Why do we suggest the AirFlo Spacers: Many dome skylights are quality, "Made in America" skylights, but unfortunately there are
a lot of skylights on the market now that are made off-shore. In very hot weather, these poorly made skylight lens can develop crazing or imperfections in the
plastic of the skylight lens. This is caused by an excessive heat build-up in the sub-standard plastic lens.
The AirFlo™ spacers lift the shading mesh off of the lens of the skylight, allowing the excess heat to dissipate.

NOTE: Using AirFlo Spacers will slightly increase the size of the dimensions of the shading mesh you will need.

If you are confident that you have a quality built dome skylight, then these spacers
are probably not necessary for your project, but if you are unsure, better to be safe than sorry.

The Primer Pen is used for applications where it is necessary to increase the surface adhesion of the EZ Snap stud.

Contains a 3M Clear, Colorless primer. Enough to prime the surface area for approximately 50 studs.

To use: Shake the pen well before using.
A gentle squeeze 1″ in from the felt tip, ruptures the inner membrane, allowing the contents to be easily dispensed.
Apply a thin, uniform coating to the bonding surface using the minimum amount that will fully coat the surface.
Dries clear. Allow to dry thoroughly before applying the studs. This takes approximately 5 minutes at room temperature.
Extremely porous surfaces may need a second application for uniform coverage and good adhesion.

TIP: Make a template, cut-out to the same size as the stud.
This prevents wasting primer by only priming the area that the stud will bond to.
**As with all primer type products, test on small area first to ensure it is compatible with surface.
