Chicago homeowners created a modern outdoor haven to maximize their space and entertainment options. The unique deck space mimics a courtyard with an unroofed area, enclosed by concrete walls and white decorative fencing. Rather than enclosing the area with a fixed roof, a white retractable shade provides protection, open-air, and a modern touch.

ShadeFX customized a 16’ x 16’ motorized retractable shade in a fire retardant and waterproof fabric. The white shade fabric is manufactured with 6 extra wings, reducing the canopy drop. With a slim track profile measuring 1.875” in width the track is easily mounted onto a single beam down the middle of the opening, allowing for an open view when retracted.

“Well, first off, I want to thank you for being consistently there to help. You were the utmost best customer service and technical person I have ever dealt with. I have been running multiple e-commerce companies doing north of $100MM now for many years and have to say that I never experienced such assistance. No matter what help I needed, whether it was doing a facetime chat to look over my issue, email, weekends, etc you were there. I write on Quora and The Medium and will be doing a writeup about exceptional customer service and how it can make or break a transaction. Again, absolutely superb.”

As for the product side, with the automation, this is now a fully functioning system and works great.”

– E. Lichstein, Homeowner

Depending on the comfort of the homeowner and the ambiance they desire, they can choose to have the shade extended or retracted.
