Most homeowners like to set up their outdoor retreat in the backyard area. There is that sense of added privacy, especially when walls and fences are erected and tall hedges or trees surround the space. However, many also find comfort and relaxation at the front of their property, enjoying the sights and scenery of the surrounding neighbourhood.

Accustomed to having a front porch in their former house, homeowners in Indiana sought to recreate the coveted space in their new home. Luckily there was more than enough space at the front of the house to make their outdoor dreams a reality.

We missed having a front porch, so we decided to create a seating area with a pergola on the corner where our garage meets the house. Since we like to sit and watch the world go by rain or shine, we needed some type of retractable awning that could attach to the pergola. I searched and searched and found ShadeFX, it was exactly what I was looking for; something that could withstand rainstorms and provide shelter from the hot summer sun.”

ShadeFX customized a 14’ x 10’ retractable roof to mount on top of the homeowner’s custom pergola. The traditionally styled structure was built to frame the front window. With the addition of the Harbor-Time Alpine White shade at the top, the homeowners still have clear views of their front yard.

“We have had our awning for several months now and we love it! We use it almost every day.

ShadeFX provided great customer service, and they were available to me and my contractor whenever we had questions.”

The motorized retractable roof gives the homeowners the flexibility of having shade when needed and open skies when required. Using the remote, the roof can be fully retracted, extended, or stopped anywhere along the track.
