In Lincoln, Ontario, a pair of homeowners decided to add shade to their backyard to create the perfect outdoor retreat. They envisioned a space where they could relax, entertain, and enjoy the beautiful summer weather without worrying about the sun’s intense heat. To achieve this goal, they built a custom wooden pergola attached to the back of their house, right over the sliding glass doors that lead to their paved patio. The area was furnished with comfortable outdoor living room furniture and a barbecue grill, setting the stage for a cozy and inviting atmosphere.

Once the pergola was completed, it was time to bring in the shade. The homeowners turned to ShadeFX. A 14′ x 12′ manual retractable canopy in a neutral Sunbrella Crest Ash fabric was manufactured to complement their outdoor space.

“I contacted a few companies regarding a sunshade for our new pergola and was most impressed with the response and assistance I received from Kevin at ShadeFX. He guided me through the measuring process and after looking at a picture of our pergola, even helped me choose both the fabric and colour.”

As an older couple, the homeowners were concerned about installing the shade on their own. However, our Product Specialist was able to recommend a preferred ShadeFX installer.

“He demonstrated how easy the installation process is. It took him only a couple of hours, after which he ensured that we knew how to properly open and close the shade as well as how to care for it. We are extremely pleased with what we consider a perfect finished product and highly recommend ShadeFX to anyone needing a sunshade for their pergola.”
