ShadeFX custom builds structures and retractable shades since no two spaces are the same size and style preferences vary. The ready-to-install systems are often created through collaborations between ShadeFX and creative designers, architects, and homeowners, all with varied visions.
The ultimate poolside retreat needs to provide an area to take cover from the blazing sun. Level Furnished Living and Cabana Pool Bar both use the integrated track curtains, adding an elegant factor with a privacy option. The classic white structures enhance the resort-like feeling.
Double the Beams, Double the Posts
Land Art Design helped The Livmore refine residential rentals. Their distinct design of two beams and two posts provide creative protection on their 5thfloor outdoor amenities.
ShadeFX both built and installed the custom shade structures. Now, the appealing shade solutions protect delicate skin in the playpen and hungry bellies in the communal kitchen.
Think Inside the Box
An area with minimal space can still feature floral accents: ShadeFX can customize shade structures to fit within chic and stylish planters’ box. Govan Brown Associates and this Outdoor Structure in Washington both share a green thumb to go along with a turnkey retractable canopy solution.
ShadeFX’s newest product is proving popular; the freestanding, wind-resistant, custom structure has three tilt positions, giving protection from the easterly or westerly sun. With only two posts, the structure adapts well into tight-fitting spaces or alongside the edge of a pool. As part of the custom solution, it can be specified with a variety of fabric colors to complement any design.
Rendezvous and Rooftop Views
There is something special about rooftop views, in this case, Washington homeowners researched shade solutions for years before finding ShadeFX’s structure and a retractable roof. The unique corner location and footprint of their rooftop deck proved to be no problem for the custom shade structure.
Likewise, Rooftop 25 at Twenty Five Lusk found that by adding a fully equipped custom structure kit, they maximized their return on investment. Rain or shine, patrons can enjoy delicious wood-fired, hand-crafted pizzas.
Goats on the Roof
This application showcases the expansive space custom shade structures can cover. The once exposed 2200 sq. ft. patio now comfortably covers 150 guests. Al Johnson’s Stabbur Beer Garden was an exciting installation complete with retractable roof and gutters. From May to October, there are grass-grazing goats on the attached barn roof.
Unique Patio Shapes
Landscaping and backyard improvements can happen in phases and sometimes result in a one-off patio shape. Square, rectangle, rhombus or even a trapezoid, ShadeFX can customize structures to fit any patio. This Birmingham patio required offset posts for the black structure. Although not where your typical posts are placed, there is no interference with the retractable canopy.
Not Just for Shade
Custom built homes usually need custom solutions. This house, in particular, desired a unique structure to tie in two patio areas without interrupting the garden. Rather than having two separate structures, the homeowners opted for three connected structures attached to their home. Three bays, two shade canopies and a flourishing garden complete this backyard nirvana.
