Different Types of Shade Covers That You Can Install at Your Home

Shade CoversShade covers come in many shapes and sizes, and so it can be challenging to find all that’s available on the market. With so many options, it’s important to search around so you can find the best possible shading system for your home. Here is a brief list of some of the most popular types of shade covers:

  • Patio and deck awnings – Perhaps the quintessential shade cover, patio and deck awnings can attach to your wall or roofline to extend and cover the area you want to be shaded. In addition to sun protection, they also act as shelter from light rainstorms.
  • Window and door awnings – In addition to increasing the curb appeal and value of your home, window and door awnings can reduce the amount of sunlight that floods into your home, which can protect your furniture and other belongings from fading due to sun exposure. Additionally, these shade covers can make it easier for your air conditioning system to maintain a comfortable interior temperature – a benefit that can help to lower your monthly energy expenses.
  • Pergola covers – These shade covers are perfect for homeowners who have existing shade structures (such as a pergola) but would like for them to provide a little more shade and protection from light rain.
  • Retractable screens – A bit different from the rest, retractable screens can be installed on any existing wall-less structure at your home to create an enclosed space. Retractable screens come in various fabric styles, and can be customized to provide different functionality, such as to provide shade or protection from bugs.
