Renovating your backyard always starts with inspiring ideas. Whether its projects seen in a neighboring backyard or online searches, homeowners see a blank canvas and picture their grand plans of creating their backyard oasis.

Some prefer the white glove experience and let the pros take control. Others favour the hands-on approach and tackle their backyard renovation on their own. Dependent on the scope of the project, most ShadeFX retractable canopies are designed to be easily installed by homeowners.

These DIYers took on this backyard project and built a sleek, charcoal pergola on their concrete patio. Defining their outdoor living space, the pergola needed one last feature to complete the area, a custom retractable canopy.

The homeowners contacted ShadeFX and reviewed their design ideas with their Product Specialist. With a few photos and a phone call, the homeowners were thoroughly guided on how to flawlessly measure their structure. Once measurements and color choices were confirmed, ShadeFX manufactured the custom 12’ x 14’ manually operated canopy.

The Sunbrella Cadet Grey fabric complements the color of the modern pergola and outdoor furniture. Continuing with their DIY skills, the homeowners also installed the canopy and built their own aluminum stabilizers, to assist with the canopy deflection.

“Hi, we absolutely love your ShadeFX. It was super easy to install and looks fantastic!”

– Mark and Marilena Madio, Homeowners
