Sweltering heat or a rainy day can ruin any chance of having an enjoyable time outdoors.

Homeowners in Georgetown, Ontario had enough of the sun hampering their alfresco dining plans. Even though they had a new pergola and deck, it wasn’t enough to keep them protected from the elements.

They contacted ShadeFX for a weather-tight solution. Initially, the family wanted a motorized retractable canopy but fell in love with the retractable roof after a visit to our showroom. The main difference being the roof would be mounted on top of the pergola, instead of underneath. This would allow the homeowners to freely hang and install accessories below.

After conducting a site assessment of the backyard, ShadeFX manufactured a 16’x16’ retractable roof to cover the custom wood pergola. The homeowners picked the neutral Sunbrella Linen for the canopy fabric with contrasting hardware powder-coated black.

The team returned to the Georgetown residence to install the roof and accompanying gutters.

“I am so happy with the retractable roof. It works amazingly. The roof can retract enough so we can enjoy our swim spa in the sun, but still get shade while we are eating our evening meal outside. It works perfectly in the not-so-perfect weather also. We can still entertain our friends if the weather turns and not have to worry about running inside. The staff was awesome to deal with from our first encounter right through to installation and beyond. Thank you so much ShadeFX. What an amazing product!”
