Port Elgin is known as Ontario’s hiking heaven and beach destination that delivers stunning sunsets. During summer, the shoreline of Lake Huron is lined with locals and visitors looking to take in the beachfront sunset view.

While some take in the beauty of the sun, others look to hide from it during the day. These homeowners had an open deck, exposed to the strong midday UV rays.

“We have had our ShadeFX canopy for nearly a month now. We are delighted with it.

In the heat of the day, if we pull the canopy across you can feel the temperature on the deck change, you are in the shade and able to enjoy lunch and/or a visit.

The other night we had company who visited well into the evening outside even though we had rain.  We were pleased with how well it worked in the rain.

The canopy has allowed us to change the location of the deck furniture and we are able to be in the shade of the canopy and out far enough from the house to get the breeze.

We had ShadeFX install the canopy. We were impressed with the professionalism of the installers – pleasant and good explanations.

Summer is a short season. Our main goal when we were looking for a canopy was to extend the time we could use our outside space. We are very pleased with our canopy.

Linda and Grant, Bruce County, Ontario

ShadeFX customized and installed an 18’x14’ shade structure with a retractable manual canopy and matching curtains. The painted ‘Pebble Grey’ structure required an inset post to clear the back French doors. The water-resistant Sunbrella Burgundy fabrics protect the homeowners and guests from the harsh afternoon sun and a casual rainfall.

Although summers may be short in Bruce County, these homeowners have found a way to extend their time on the back deck with the addition of a retractable shade structure.

Don’t let climate stop you from enjoying your open deck. Contact us today to add a custom retractable shade structure.
