Shade Solutions – Pergolas, Canopies, and Mosquito Curtains

Your backyard is your retreat.  It is your escape. It is where you go to relax, where you enjoy precious moments with the children and entertain your friends and family.  Sometimes though, the summer sun is especially hot and the mosquitos and bees swarm around you.  When this happens, do you find yourself mulling over just what you should do?  Shade and protection are the most logical conclusion, but is a screen porch or sunroom necessary to provide these attributes?  Building a screen room may be the perfect solution for your family.  Perhaps, however,  you prefer the open atmosphere of your deck and patio, or a room isn’t the sort of investment you are looking for at this time.  Fortunately, Archadeck has many options when it comes to shade and bug protection.

Pergolas can provide a substantial  amount of shade; and for many, this is perfect.  If you’re looking for more coverage, installing a canopy on the pergola is an excellent option.  Canopies allow you the flexibility to let in as much sunshine as you choose or create as much shade as you need at any given time.

Adding mosquito curtains offers protection from pesky little insects.  You are able to pull them closed when the mosquitos and bees are out or open them back up when such protection is not necessary.  Not only are they versatile and functional, but the curtains also add a beautiful and elegant touch to any pergola.
