Retractable shade has become an essential part of backyard living. When the warmer seasons approach, homeowners plan a full schedule of backyard barbecues, alfresco dining and late-night conversations on the patio.

These homeowners are situated in Port Credit, also referred to as Mississauga’s ‘Village on the Lake’. During the summer months, the area hosts several popular festivals along Lake Ontario. Events such as the Waterfront Festival, a Blues and Jazz Festival known as the Southside Shuffle and an annual Busker Fest attracts thousands every year.

After enjoying these social events, the homeowners retreat to the comfort of their backyard complete with outdoor furniture and calming green space. The homeowners have a wooden pergola that provides filtered shade but required additional coverage for the particular balmy days.

ShadeFX customized and installed a 10’x10’ retractable shade and curtains in a Sunbrella Natural fabric. The addition of curtains block the blinding rays of the rising sun, and side rain on windy days. The canopy operates on an eco-friendly rope system. This option extends and retracts the canopy by pulling on the rope loop anchored to the pergola post. The canopy locks in place by fitting the rope into the retaining cleat.

Now when the homeowners prefer to relax outside or enjoy an open-air dinner, the flexibility of retractable shade allows them to continue regardless of the pending forecast.
