Pergolas are relatively simple structures that are wildly popular in some of the most beautiful Texas backyards. Formed with sturdy posts and crossbeams, a pergola is an archway that creates shade over any outdoor feature, such as a walkway, garden, or sitting area. Conceptualized by Italians during the Renaissance, pergolas provide an elegant European flair to any backyard.

But despite their stylish qualities, pergolas are not effective in blocking the sun or rain. Your patio is unquestionably an excellent space to spend your days outside in great weather. But as you’ve surely experienced, sometimes the heat can be unbearable, and all you want is some cover. Also, exposure to the sun and rain degrades patio furniture quickly. If your home already has a pergola, Shade Outdoor Living Solutions offers the perfect motorized retractable cover: the Sunesta Suncover.

The Sunesta Suncover is a fully retractable, versatile line of pergola covers designed to protect you from the sun’s harsh rays. Discrete and attractive, the Suncover offers a number of options including: 

Custom Sizes – Through a precise custom manufacturing process, we can fit any pergola up to 16′ in width and 23′ in projection.
Fabric Selections – Sunesta offers the industry’s widest variety of material and styles to fit your aesthetic sensibilities. Choices range from permeable sun screen to waterproof woven acrylic fabric.
Openness Factors– You’re able to choose exactly how much shade you want to let into through your cover by selecting the openness factor of your fabric. To determine the optimal openness number for your cover, understand that the amount of shade provided works inversely to the openness factor. Meaning if you are looking for about 99% shade on your cover, your openness factor is around 1%. If you’re looking for something that lets a good deal of light in (around 60%), your number is probably likely to skew higher around 14%. The Sunesta Suncover is available in the following openness factors: 1%, 4%, 5%, 6%, 10%, 12% and 14%.

The Sunplus: A Cloth Retractable Roof
Looking to take your retractable shelter to the next level? Drive the rain away from your deck or patio with Sunesta’s Sunplus. The Sunplus is manufactured with gutters that handle rain run-off. Its external frame allows the Sunplus to to withstand wind gusts of over 45 miles per hour. Like a retractable awning, the Sunplus offers a wireless remote control and automatic sun and wind sensors to make operating it a breeze. The Sunplus can be mounted on top of an existing structure or rest upon aluminum posts provided by Sunesta.

Sunesta products are backed by a 10-year warranty on the fabric and a five-year warranty on the motor and frame. 

 

What Our Clients Are Saying

Testimonials

Shade Outdoor Living Solutions out of Austin just completed our Arcadia Louvered Roof here in the Canyon Lake, TX area. After looking at some other options out there, this was an easy choice in regards to durability, low cost of maintenance, and the 10 year warranty on the work and structure itself. The install took two days. The crew was great, on time, knowledgeable, and kept us informed and involved throughout. I have and would recommended this product to my closest friends and family members. Very happy with the purchase!

I hired Shade Outdoor Living Solutions to install an Arcadia Louvered Roof system at my house. I am extremely pleased with the results. It looks great and has totally changed the look and feel of my outdoor space. My specific project included a single support beam with two sides of the porch attached to my roof. It’s very stable. I also had them wire the system for a ceiling fan and two LED lights. Before adding the porch, we had no desire to spend time in the back yard because it was too hot. Now, it’s very inviting and we’ve added some party lights to make it look and feel even better. In fact, one of my teenage sons said “the porch looks cool and modern and now it makes the rest of your house look old.” So there’s that. I’m extremely pleased and would highly recommend the Arcadia louvered roof system from Shade Outdoor Living Solutions. It looks awesome and completely changed my back yard. Everyone that has been to my house also really likes it.
