The solar screen contributed on lessening my electric bill by 20% during the hot season. I should have considered the 99% filtration to have gained full benefits.

We put additional solar screens on the south and north side of our house. We like the privacy in addition to saving money. They were prompt and thorough.

Fast service. Very polite staff. Didn't even need to be home for the quote. Loved the clips for easy removal of the screen. Looks great!

Lone Star was prompt, friendly, professional and very well priced! It took very little time to set up and complete the project. And it took very little effort from me (the home owner).

I placed the order with Terry on Thurs June 13 and had my screens installed on Mon June 17th. I love the screens. I am very impressed and look forward to lower utility bills in the future.

The sales reps were very knowledgeable and helpful on the initial call. We have a lot of windows and did the entire house in stages so I got meet at least 4 different reps and they were all helpful. The installation team was skilled and I have had no problems on screens. The only issue had was I selected one type and my wife decided on another. Have 2 types on the house made it clear her choice was better. Now I just need to have them out again to replace the first set so the house matches. (LOL) The savings were immediate. I worked in one room where the sun was direct. I could feel the differnce in the summmer temp inside. The saving in utilites were worth the cost of the screens. And they look great! Just be sure you consider the effect of lighting. Our house is darker on the inside. Its ok, we wanted to utility cost reduction more than the light comming in.

Technican came out on Saturday to measure windows and all were installed on Wednesday. Cost was lower than any screens we found online and we didn't even have to measure them. Great service and great price for top-of-the-line screens. We are very pleased!

Super Company! Quoted 1 other company, Lonestar was more professional and better priced, explained the screens,how they worked and the amazing warranty. I live in a community that needs HOA approval, Lonestar worked with me, built the screens and held onto them until I got approval. I called them and the screens were installed the next day after approval.

That was 1 yr ago...my electric bills last summer (2011) were substancially lower than year before..and 2011 summer was hot! Highly recommend!

To keep it short and to the point.I had to call several times to get a screen repaired that was covered on the warranty.I was told something different everytime I called.The manager Adam was rude loud and no help.Then spoke with the owner Jim that did nothing but yell and use vulgar language to me then hung up.I was and am still shocked at the way the owner spoke and the things he said.He would not even let me speak.Screamimg do you have something stuck in your freaking ear,we won`t even come out and fix the freaking screen.I then called back and he would not get on the phone.Wow!!This is the short of the story not the complete version in the manner I was treated as a paying customer that just wanted my screen repaired and was attacked.

This company took my order and lost it for over two weeks. When I called and asked for a date for install they said they never received my order so I faxed it over to them he started yelling at me. I know now it was the owner from the way other company's described the same scenario as what happened to me. I asked for the name from the suppliers and got a great guy that is respectful. I printed the other reviews and faxed them to this company and told them thanks for doing me a favor and running me off. I hope by doing this review and letting everyone in my e-mail list know what kind of company this is they might get the message but I talked to the BBB and they said these were the same comments they had received on this company and there were many more.

Good Response time on the free estimate (my neighbor and I both got estimates). Excellent Prices (so we thought). They were about 17% less than The McKinney TX Company that also gave us an estimate.

My neighbor got them & boy is he sorry about it. We waited to see their screens before we made the decision to buy. Holy Cow is all I could say when we saw the screens screwed right into the window frames. Very thin and flimsy aluminum frame, cheap outside plastic corners (that will break in a year or two in this Texas Heat & Sun), and SCREWED Into the windows.
We went ahead and ordered the more expensive screens from SSW in McKinney because we liked the owner, who came to our home twice) and explained everything. They are here in McKinney. He was professional, provided us with a LIFETIME Warranty and the screens are 4 or 5 times better than our friends next door. The Frame is VERY Heavy Duty Extruded Aluminum, Matches perfectly with our paint, and they don't have to be screwed into the windows. They FIT Perfectly.

I recently contacted Lone Star. I found them to be extremely rude and unprofessional. Since then I have visited with other solar screen businesses and found out that their product is sub par also. They use plastic corners and smaller frames and the grids are not riveted.

Be aware, this company can be nasty! First someone came to my house gave a quote for something in the range of 300. 6 month later when I shop for a new quote, another guy from the same company came and quoted me close to 700 for the SAME windows. When I asked why, they claim material price increased, and the first guy made a mistake!

Later on when I purchased the screens, they installed without notifying me, so I never had a chance to make changes to the old plan. Then they called to ask for money, attitude was really rude, and threaten to go collection on me on the phone.

The workman ship seems OK. But be aware, the experiences I had with this company was awful!
