ShadeFX takes pleasure working with talented, professional firms that share the vision of making clients’ outdoor dreams come true.

Founded in 2003, our partners Nicholson Builders have been helping homeowners design, build, and remodel their homes into beautiful, relaxing spaces.

Dubbed the “remodeling professionals”, the Nicholson team is one of the most sought-after design-build firms in the Central Ohio region. They have won numerous awards over the years for their excellence in the design and construction industry, solidifying themselves as a regional leader.

With an 8-step design process for any build, the award-winning company collaborated with ShadeFX for a backyard renovation in Columbus, Ohio.

“We recently partnered with ShadeFX on a project at Nicholson Builders. Their customer support was top-notch and the installation went together as planned. The instructions that came with the unit were easy to read and made sense for our installers. As a Design-Build company, we search for high-quality products and people to partner with. We will definitely partner with the ShadeFX Team on future projects!”

– William Nicholson, Owner, Nicholson Builders

To create the perfect chill-out spot, Nicholson Builders constructed a large wooden pergola to cover the pool loungers and comfy outdoor armchairs. The area is further defined by the wood decking underneath the lounge area.

Knowing their clients’ needs, the team sought ShadeFX to provide the perfect weather solution to fit the custom structure. Two 14′ x 10′ manual retractable canopies were specified in an earthy Sunbrella Cocoa fabric. The canopy track, wings, and accompanying hardware are powder-coated cream to match the colour of the pergola.

The manual canopies operate independently of each other and the double-manual feature allows them to extend or retract to either end of the pergola. They also provide the option of changing the layout of the space without sacrificing functionality due to bad weather.

ShadeFX retractable canopies transform outdoor areas into functional, engaging spaces. Contact us today.
