Nature-lovers flock to Surrey, British Columbia for its diverse landscape and recreational opportunities. The region’s mild climate means that residents can enjoy the outdoors year around. Surrey is also in a coastal temperate rainforest zone, meaning when outside, it’s best to be prepared for unexpected showers.

These homeowners and outdoor enthusiasts desired a backyard space that embraces their alfresco lifestyle. Enlisting the help of a local contractor, they built a split-level deck and outfitted it with amenities for dining, relaxing, and enjoying their surroundings.

There is a porch swing, an outdoor dining area, BBQ, and for the spot where the homeowners spend most of their time, a covered living area complete with comfy seating and a firepit. Attached to the back of the house, just beyond the double doors, is a large, natural wood pergola covering the entire living space.

To provide the homeowners with reliable weather protection, their contractor contacted ShadeFX for a retractable solution. Guided by a ShadeFX Product Specialist, a 16’x12′ rope-operated shade was manufactured for the custom pergola. A bold HaborTime Edge Nautical was chosen for the canopy fabric, adding a pop of colour to the space.

“Excellent experience with ShadeFX. Professional and punctual with delivery. An error was made with the canopy colour and Kevin immediately ordered the correct colour at no charge to me.

Would highly recommend their service and product.”

– Meena Bhagat, Homeowner

The homeowners can now enjoy their open-air living space on a newly renovated deck, hidden away from fiery sun and unexpected showers. The eco-friendly rope pulley operation allows them to stop the canopy at any location along the track, controlling how much sunlight they want to keep out and let in.
