If by daytime you mean open windows, sun shining through... not really. You'll see something, but it will be immensely washed out compared to a real TV.
If you have some blinds, you're in a much better position.
OK, screens... you must use a UST-specific screen if you are going to employ an ALR (ambient light reflecting screen) all of which is a necessity for daytime use.
If you have blinds and do a bit of light control/dimming then you can treat it like a regular projector in terms of screen choice, again just don't use a "regular" ALR screen, that will give you a very dim picture because it will actually reject the light from the projector.
I do not have the personal knowledge or experience to make specific recommendations, I'm hoping that some members here can offer some additional assistance.
Anyhow, one thing to remember is that the bigger you go, the dimmer the picture. So if you go for the max 150" screen, the ambient light threshold where it starts to look good will be a little bit dimmer.
Of course the reward is that when you do dim the lights, the resulting picture looks like a high quality TV at that size.
