Choosing Your Patio Shades
You know you need shade for your patio but with all of the options, how do you decide which one will work best for you? The following is a guide to help you in choosing the right shade for your home. To start you want to ask yourself the following questions:
Do you already have a covered patio but are still getting tortured by the sun and the light because your patio faces east, west or south?
Consider our patio sun and windscreens or outdoor curtains/drapes.
Retractable Patio Shades
Liberty’s line of retractable patio shades are an affordable way to block the sun, protect your outdoor furniture from fading, reduce the load on your air conditioner and increase the enjoyment of your patio during the times when the sun is too intense. Manufactured in our shop located right here in Phoenix, Liberty customizes the shades to your opening. You have many fabrics and colors to choose from with either a 90% or 95% sun block so that you can block the sun without blocking your view. Or you may choose a 100% sun block for both sun protection and privacy. Patio, sun and windscreens can be built as large or small as you need and are equipped with a lockdown system so they don’t flap around in the wind. We offer a Lifetime Warranty on the frame and a 10-year Warranty on the fabric. There are both manual and motorized options to fit any budget and you can even automate them with the Somfy Sun and Wind sensor so they will come down when the sun comes out even if you are not home and will retract in the wind or when it gets dark.
Outdoor Patio Curtains
Outdoor patio curtains or drapes are another great way to shade your existing covered area. They give your outside area a resort-style look, turning it into more of a “Cabana” feel but function much the same as the retractable shades in that you can close them when the sun gets too intense. You can customize your curtains by choosing your rod, finial, colors and styles, as well as choosing your fabric from the hundreds of color choices Sunbrella offers. The frame has our Liberty Lifetime Warranty and the fabric has a 10-year Warranty.
Do you already have a covered patio but want to expand your living area out so that you can enjoy shade beyond what you already have? Or, do you not have any shade at all and want to expand your shade out?
If your answer to either of these questions is yes, consider retractable awnings, patio covers and/ or shade sails. All of which are low maintenance, long lasting options for sun control.
Liberty’s own line of retractable awnings is a great way to expand your shade out over a living area and even shade part of a pool. Not only will you increase your living area but you greatly reduce the energy of the sun that reaches your windows and sliding glass doors that make the inside of your house heat up. The nice thing about a retractable awning is that you can have shade when you need it, sky and sunshine when you don’t. They range in sizes from 10’ wide by 5’6” projection to 36’ wide by 13’ projection. The hundreds of color options from Sunbrella and the hand crank and motorized options allow you to customize your awning so that it fits the look of your home and your budget. With Liberty’s Lifetime Warranty on the frame, Sunbrellas 10 year Warranty on fabric and the ability to just change out fabric in 12-15 years, you can rest assured that the investment will pay off.
Aluminum Lattice & Solid Patio Covers
Aluminum lattice and solid patio covers are another great option to create more outdoor space and increase the value of your home. Made of aluminum that has a rich textured wood grain finish and the DuPont Teflon surface protector, you will never need to paint or worry about cracking, peeling, warping, termites or burning. You can choose from either a lattice cover that only gives partial shade but allows some sunlight to come through, or a solid cover that will completely shade and protect you from the rain. The best thing about aluminum covers is that they can be completely be customized to fit your needs perfectly. We can curve them and design them to whatever picture you have in mind and they last a lifetime.
Shade sails are another way to shade a garden, playground, pool or any other area that needs shade. These modern looking shades come in many fabric colors from Coolaroo and can also be totally customized. The fabric blocks 95% of the sun but still allows some light to come through, as it is a mesh-like fabric.
Other Things To Consider
Other things to consider when making the choice for you patio shades are your budget and where your patio is in regards to the sun. Retractable awnings are great at expanding your living area but are about twice the cost of the retractable screens and if you are west facing, as the sun gets lower in the sky in the late afternoon, it will creep in under your awning. So if you really want to reduce the sunlight that glares into your windows and sliding glass doors in the afternoon, the patio sun & windscreens might be a better choice for you. Also, if your patio faces south, retractable awnings do give great shade but your shade will move around as the sun moves from east to west. Alumawood covers give you the option of installing patio shades on the sides so you can have shade no matter where the sun is in the sky. However, the covers are permanent and don’t retract.
