Enhancing a slab of concrete is as simple as adding a pergola with a retractable shade. This essential and versatile addition can completely transform a dull backyard into a slice of heaven.

For these homeowners in Indianapolis, adding a water repellent retractable shade would allow them to comfortably sit throughout the spring and summer seasons. This area, in particular, receives a slightly higher than average amount of rainfall from May to June in a city that experiences upwards of 20 thunderstorms annually.

After completing a custom pergola, homeowner Laurie reached out to ShadeFX. Following consultations through phone calls, e-mails and photos, ShadeFX manufactured a meek 10’x10’ manual retractable shade for their lightly stained structure.

The water-repellent HarborTime Edge Putty colored fabric provides sun and rain protection over a small patio set below. ShadeFX’s patented single-track system, stabilizers, and end caps are also colored black to visually complement the structure.

Once installed, the homeowners found an immediate likeness to the overhead weather solution.

“We sat outside under the shade yesterday afternoon and we thought we were in heaven!”

As can be seen from this outdoor project, simplicity is key. The pergola and retractable shade duo have added much-required zest to this once bare patio.
