Heavy Duty Tinted Palstic

andrelaplume2May 13, 2009

I was not sure where to turn so I will try hear first. Pop's huge tree died and had to be removed. He has one of those pole/fabric awnings on his back porch but that does not keep the sun out late in the day. He tried those bamboo style and plastic rollup blinds but was not happy with them since he wants to see out.

I am thinking there must be some sort of heavy duty tinted clear plastic that we can perhaps put grommets in and hang, and rollup when not in use. I am thinking something thick like a tarp but clear and tinted.

Anyone have any ideas or suggestions. They would need to be about 10 feet wide and maybe 4 feet long. We'd likely need 3 sections. Ideally durable or cheap enough to replace each season.

check with a shop that deals in convertible tops or with boat canvas. They should have big rolls of the plastic used for windows, and probably have tinted window material as well.
