Huntington Beach, or ‘Surf City’, has a vibrant downtown, fresh marketplaces, open-air dining and of course, killer waves. With miles of pristine beaches and near-perfect weather, it’s an endless summer getaway. Luckily, some get to experience constant sunshine and radiant sunsets as they call Huntington Beach home. Even so, winter nights can still be a touch chilly for Californians.

Looking to provide a warm ambience on cooler nights, the homeowners added a classic white pergola to define their outdoor living space. The addition of an electric fireplace, a high definition TV, powerful speakers and retractable roof was the gateway to a pleasant entertaining atmosphere.

“As we looked to redesign our outdoor space, we decided to utilize ShadeFX after extensive research on high-quality retractable roofs. Residing in the year-round warm climate that Southern California has to offer, we have a great opportunity to extend home enjoyment by leveraging our living space. In doing that, having the ability to adapt to a range of weather conditions, from full sun to rain was of key importance to my wife Victoria and myself.

Prameela and the ShadeFX team have been an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. They worked closely with our contractor through the process of specifying our optimal design solution, kept us aware of the key steps in the factory build timeline as well as sending Peti (one of their experts) to supervise the delivery and installation at our home.

We love our ShadeFX retractable roof and the flexibility that it provides for us to enjoy our total home. Thanks so much to the entire ShadeFX team for an outstanding job in helping to bring our concept to reality!!!”

ShadeFX customized and installed a black motorized 20’x 10’ retractable roof. The Ferrari waterproof and fire-retardant fabric provides protection from rain and the fire feature below. The system was powder coated white to blend in with the outdoor structure.

The homeowners went for a fully automated environment, from the retractable roof, to the tuck away television. Technology is no longer restricted to the interior of your home and choosing products designed for outdoor conditions keep homeowners stress free.

Whether these Californians are hosting a spa retreat, the neighborhood barbeque, or Saturday night’s sports event, this backyard has it all; location, outdoor protection, great weather, backyard technology and a laid-back vibe.
