DSC02778“My wife and I extensively researched all our options in order to find a window shade system that would both protect the investment in our porch and aesthetically complement our home. Our research paid off! When I spoke to Carla on the phone I could tell that she took enormous pride in her product and that she would make sure we were happy with the results. When Carla came to our home to take measurements and present our options, her attention to detail and expert advice added again to our confidence in choosing Weather Queen. Still, nothing could have prepared us for how fantastic the final product looked. I was there the day the shades were installed and witnessed firsthand the meticulous work of Carla’s installers. As each shade was mounted our excitement grew and when the project was complete I could not believe my eyes! The shades were absolutely stunning! One test remained, which was to see what would happened when a true Northwoods micro-storm came rolling across the lake with high gusty winds. Guess what? The shades never budged and the interior of our porch was dry, clean and undisturbed. What Carla has done in designing this shade system is remarkable and a true gift. We most enthusiastically and earnestly recommend Carla and Weather Queen Shades. Six stars out of five!”

“We have had our Weather Queen Shades for three years on the porch of our duplex in Saint Paul. We could not be happier with our shades and with the services Carla and her fantastic team provided for us. The shades still work with great ease and provide us with both visual and to some degree noise privacy on our very busy street. Quality always pays off! Thanks Carla and friends!”

Shades for sleeping porch“Best investment I ever made for the cabin! My “Adult Tent/Sleeping Porch” is a dream come true! Thanks Carla for inventing a product that keeps all the dirt, rain, snow and wind away! It allowed me to decorate with any furniture, lamps,floor covering or artwork that I wanted because it isn’t going to get wet or dirty! Plus the pull cords are on the inside. Genius! I love my shades!”

“We could not be more pleased with our custom Weather Queen Shades. A little background first. Just over a year ago we completed a house renovation project, which included a screened porch. The porch turned out great but for the past year we have not used it much, mainly because of the direct late afternoon/evening sun. Our other concern was protecting our furniture and other items from the sun, driving wind/rain storms, and heavy springtime pollen. We had considered several options (wood shutters, interior blinds, removable glass or plexiglass inserts, etc.) but all had related downsides.

I knew there had to be a good solution but had no idea what that might be. Fortunately, I found the Weather Queen Shades website when searching the Internet. As I read the information and watched the video it started to sink in that this might be it, but the only dealers for the product were based in Wisconsin and Minnesota – and we’re in Virginia. As is turned out, that was not an issue. Carla had a Virginia dealer lined up and ready to go, and the process could not have gone smoother. Both Carla and Christine Shepard (dealer) were great to work with and four or five weeks later the shades were installed. In short, we love them. Both the quality and functionality are outstanding. It turns out it was not a good solution, but a great one. We’re now using the porch all the time. As far as the elements … bring it on. It’s so easy and convenient to lower the shades from inside the porch and then simply not worry about it.”

Gwen testimonial“I love our Weather Queen Shades! Ever since the day they were installed in early June we haven’t missed a night sleeping in our porch (and it’s now October in Minnesota!). My favorite nights are the rainy ones when the shades are down. Those nights it feels like we are miles away from home sleeping in a tent, a yurt, or a Japanese tea house. It’s cozy, private, dry and beautiful in there. Buying Weather Queen Shades is the best thing we’ve ever done for our house, second only to building the screen porch. The shades are of the highest quality. You can tell they were designed with not only functionality in mind, but also beauty and quality. Working with Carla and her team was just great. They are honest, hard working, ethical people who really know what they are doing. I recommend these shades to anyone who has a screen porch. It will change the way you live in your porch.”
