Shade is one of the most important elements of a functional backyard design. It provides relief from the heat, shelter from the rain, and protection from the UV rays.

For homeowners in Toronto, shade from the sun and its harmful rays was their number one priority. After a major backyard renovation, they reached out to ShadeFX for a poolside shade solution, a Freestanding Retractable Canopy.

The unique two-post structure delivers on function and style. Its tall, slim commercial-grade aluminum frame is paired with our retractable canopy for a sleek, modern look. Knowing what they needed from the get-go, ShadeFX manufactured a 14’x10’ freestanding retractable canopy for the homeowners.

ShadeFX’s Service Team installed the shade structure that towers 8ft over the new outdoor living space. For a modern aesthetic, the system was powder coated black and a light Sunbrella Silica Gravel was chosen for the canopy fabric.

“We couldn’t be happier with the way the structure looks. It is perfect. The colour of the posts, and fabric colour/quality exceeded our expectations.

Your service from the beginning of inquiry to installation has been stellar and we are extremely satisfied. Tom and Nate were very friendly, informative, and professional yesterday and it was a pleasure having them work on our property.  They showed us in detail how to operate it and change the tilt.”

The homeowners created the perfect little alcove to retreat to when they want to escape the heat. They also have the flexibility of mixing up their coverage, partially extending or retracting the canopy, and tilting it forward or backward as needed.
