Retractable Shades Provide Protection from Insects and Extreme Weather

We’re fortunate to live in a beautiful high desert area that boasts an average of 300 days of sunshine every year. And for many of our clients, it’s the call of the outdoors that led them here, from fishing, hiking, skiing, and snowboarding to the miles of bike trails.

This enthusiasm for the great outdoors leads many to place a special emphasis on their home's outdoor spaces. Some create the ultimate in outdoor entertainment, from outdoor TVs by the pool and on the patio to high-resolution outdoor speakers that fill the air with high-fidelity music and audio. Of course, clients also envision a quiet, peaceful setting—a place to enjoy al fresco dining surrounded by beautiful landscape lights or greet the sunrise with their favorite yoga asanas and exercises.

There’s one outdoor feature that enhances all these activities—outdoor shades. Today’s shades are effortless to control and create a protected and beautiful area. Let's explore their many benefits and how they let you enjoy your backyard in Reno, NV, year-round.

Enjoying Your Backyard in Any Weather

Your outdoor shading system creates an oasis protected from the harsh summer sun and cold winter winds. With firepits, outdoor heaters, and fans, you can add beauty while providing a comfortable climate. It’s the ideal room for entertaining friends, relaxing at day’s end, and enjoying meals with the family.

Some retractable shades are designed specifically to protect you and your outdoor furniture from the sun’s harmful UV rays and solar heat gain. They let in just the right amount of diffuse sunlight while preventing glare. These motorized shades can also keep the rain out, letting you enjoy an afternoon storm without rushing inside.

Pest-Free Entertainment & Dining

Nothing disrupts an outdoor gathering faster than insects and bugs. Imagine dining outdoors, enjoying your stunning landscape, patio, and pool lighting without the irritation of cluster flies, mosquitoes, wasps, and other intruders. Retractable shades offer insect-resistant fabrics that seal the bugs out.

Adding to Your Aesthetics & Effortless to Control

Today’s motorized outdoor shades come in beautiful materials that align with the aesthetics of your outdoor areas. They're ideal for patios, pergolas, gazebos, and lanais, extending your home and adding living space without costly renovations. The fabric is designed for your unique needs, from reducing solar heat to keeping pests out, with some manufacturers creating custom fabrics designed to match your outdoor design.

One-touch control lets you raise and lower your shades instantly. We can also program them to automatically open and close at certain times of the day, such as ensuring privacy when night falls. When integrated with your Control4 home automation system, you can manage your outdoor lighting, entertainment, and shades from the same user-friendly platform.
