The summer/fall season means longer days, temperate weather, and getting excited to spend some time out on our back patio or deck. Whether we are having friends over for an evening cocktail, family over for a fall BBQ, or we are simply relaxing with a cool drink in our hand, spending time outside lets us fully enjoy the summer season. Of course, this enjoyment can quickly transform into agitation if our decks and patios are not properly covered. That is why we are excited to talk to you about our collection of exterior shades! These allow you to enjoy your outdoor space without any of the downsides, including bugs and harsh UV rays. Read on to learn more about the benefits of adding exterior shades to homes.

Transform Your Space

If you are ready to give your outdoor space a stunning upgrade, then you will love learning more about our custom exterior shades and solar screens. We have a variety of custom options that we are happy to discuss with you depending on your needs. Different opacities, for example, will provide more or less protection from the sun. A variety of colors, on the other hand, lets you create a shade that you will love showing off. You can enjoy your patio all year long with our solar screens and sun shades! After all, why limit yourself to your outdoor space to just a few months out of the years?

Be in Control

You should control your exterior shades, not the other way around. Certain big box exterior shades will be difficult to control, making you wonder if they are worth the benefits they provide. Fortunately, our exterior shades are easy to operate. That is because all of our custom outdoor products, including exterior shades, are featured with automated raise and lower functions. All you have to do is use your remote to raise, lower, or adjust your shades. No more struggling to enjoy some shade or protection from the elements!

Protect Your Patio or Deck

Odds are, a lot of time, thought, and money went in to creating your perfect outdoor space. With that in mind, you will want to protect it so you can enjoy it year after year. That is why one of the benefits of exterior shades is that they protect your patio or deck. Not only do these shades eliminate damaging UV rays, but they also keep insects at bay, curb the afternoon sun to keep your outdoor space temperate all year long, and protect your furniture from bleaching or becoming damaged by the rain.
