Published On: April 12, 2022|Categories: Retractable Shades|

One of the challenges of enjoying your outdoor space in Ottawa is that the weather can be quite fickle. The sun is beating down on you one moment, and the next, it isn’t. Homeowners have tried various solutions to make their outdoor space more comfortable, but one that is quickly gaining in popularity is the retractable canopy

What is a retractable canopy? 

Retractable canopies are shades that can be affixed to almost any outdoor structure to provide you with protection from the sun or light rain or to provide you with some extra privacy. They are an economical way to make your outdoor space more comfortable without having to make any cuts to your deck or major changes to the structures you already have. 

Because they are retractable (usually motorized and easy to use with the touch of a button), they can be conveniently adjusted with the weather and with your desired level of privacy. 

Benefits of retractable canopies

Some of the benefits of retractable canopies are as follows:

  • Protection from the elements – retractable shades allow you to get more use out of your outdoor space because they provide protection when the sun is too hot and protection from light rain. 
  • Added privacy – these canopies give you extra privacy, making it easier for you to enjoy your outdoor space without feeling like you are on display. 
  • Easy to use – Our retractable canopies are motorized and can be easily retracted or expanded with the use of a remote control or with your smartphone. 
  • Can go almost anywhere – Our retractable shades are designed to work with almost any outdoor space, including large or oddly shaped areas. In fact, our ShadeFX models can cover nearly 600 square feet. To cover even larger areas, you can combine multiple canopies. Furthermore, these shades can adapt to existing structures so you don’t need to affix them to a wall or make any major renovations to your outdoor space to use them. 
  • Stylish and attractive – Choose from a variety of fabric colours and patterns. You are sure to find something that suits the style of your outdoor space and your personal tastes. 
  • Low maintenance and easy to care for – Our retractable canopies are made from durable, UV-resistant materials and fabrics. They are fade-resistant and easy to wash and maintain. This means that with only minimal maintenance, they will continue to look great and function well for many years.
