Awnings for Expanding Entertainment Space

You may have been asking yourself: How can I provide more shaded space for visitors to take cover from the Arizona Sun? The answer is Awnings.

Additional Usable Space

Awnings are perfect for homes that do not have an attached patio structure. If the sun is shining directly on your guests on the deck area, an awning can give them the shade they need. If you do have a patio, you can expand your shaded area significantly by installing awnings to patio openings.

Stationary or Retractable Awnings?

You have two types of awnings to choose from, depending on your preference. Retractable Awnings allow you to hide it away when you don’t need it. Lounge under the sun for the perfect tan, or catch a glimpse of the night sky during evenings. Stationary awnings cannot retract, but instead serve as a permanent source of shade and cover from the elements.

Awning Accessories

There are a number of accessories you can add to your motorized retractable awnings to provide a more efficient experience. Wind sensors ensure your awnings retract when winds reach a certain level. Sun Sensors extend your awnings when intensity raises to a certain level.

By expanding your entertaining space with awnings, you can definitely spend the entire day outside with your guests while being protected from harmful UV rays. Invest in awnings for expanding your entertaining space, use an honest company, trusted by Arizona homeowners.

East-West or North-South: Where Should Your House Face?

For a number of homeowners, orientation matters when it comes to where the house faces. Many would opt for east-facing homes for that beautiful sunrise or a home that’s facing west for cooler mornings that are great for sleeping in. When you’re living in Arizona however, having an east-west facing house can actually entail problems.


All Pro Shade Concepts installs custom window sun screens, awnings, and patio shades; and are the leading shade providers in Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, the East Valley (Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler, Tempe, Queen Creek) and West Valley (Phoenix, Glendale, Sun City, Laveen, Peoria, Avondale, Goodyear).

For home efficiency’s sake, your best bet is to have a home that’s facing north or south. Here’s why.

East-West Facing House


With an east-west facing house, the intense heat will be concentrated on the front and backyard, discouraging yard time with loved ones. Homes rarely have large windows on the side of their homes, they’re usually located at the front & back of the home. The summer sun will beam into windows and temperatures indoors will be a lot higher, demanding more in cooling costs.

North-Facing


Typically a north-facing home will only get sunlight in the back of the home and will be naturally cooler and darker than that of a south-facing home. In a place like Arizona this is typically the home you’ll want to look more at to keep cooling costs down when the temperatures rise. Who wouldn't want to save more money when you're running the A/C so often?

All Pro Shade Concepts will be at the MARICOPA COUNTY HOME SHOWS this March 6-8 2020. Catch us at the State Farm Stadium and take a look at our custom quality awnings, sun screens, and more.

What to Do When You Have an East- or West-Facing Home

If you have a home that faces east or west, your best solution is shade. Trees shading windows can help block heat & sun exposure from entering your home. If you are concerned about your view becoming obstructed, shade installations could be the answer.

Window Sun Screens provide you with increased privacy, where passersby cannot see in, while you can clearly see out. Installing Window Sun Screens on your home can save you up to 25% on Cooling Costs in the intense Arizona summer. 

All Pro Shade Concepts is Phoenix’s most trusted when it comes to sun screens. If you have an SRP Account for your home, you may be eligible for the SRP Screen Shade Rebate Program. SRP is offering customers a rebate of $0.80 per square foot on window screens installed by All Pro Shade Concepts.

Patio Drop Shades keep your home cooler, and also serve as an added layer of shade for you and your guests, when the sun shines into your patio. 

Awnings can be installed over doors or windows to provide protection from sun entering your home. Attaching retractable awnings to patios also provides expansion of shaded entertainment space, that you can retract when not needed.

Patio Shades & Retractable Awnings reduce cooling costs and can both be motorized & integrated with sun or wind sensors, for maximum efficiency.

Host the Most Epic Super Bowl Party

Now that 2019 is but a distant memory, it’s time to look forward to 2020’s first big event - The Super Bowl! Super Bowl LIV 2020 will be at 4:30 PM MST on

Sunday, February 2, 2020

 

If you’re planning to host a Super Bowl party in your home, it’s never too early to prepare. Here are some in hosting the most epic Super Bowl party:

Prepare the Space

Think about how guests will watch the game. Prepare the amount of seating you will need for everyone to enjoy the game comfortably. While the couch may not be adequate to accommodate all your guests, think about putting the game on in different areas. A popular Idea is to have the game on in the backyard. Grill burgers and hot dogs, or grab a beer while enjoying the game as the kids play. 

Comfy seats are essential, and you should set them up so everyone can see the screen and easily access the food. If you’re hosting the party on your patio, you can expand your entertainment space with some awnings, or make it a little more intimate (and bug free!) with some zipper-sealed patio shades. Decorate the area according to the colors of the teams playing with some streamers, mini-flags and foam-fingers, and you’re all set! 

Game & Half-Time Show Fun

Get everyone into the Super Bowl spirit with some fun games around the event. Start a drinking game that revolves around certain plays, commercials, or the half time show. Jennifer Lopez & Shakira will be the headliners for this year's Super Bowl Half Time Show.

Make a pool for Super Bowl predictions before the game starts and have everyone put in a couple dollars to play.  You can even have some fun with the prizes- get a little trophy and pop a bottle of champagne to celebrate the winner.

 

Simple, But Delicious Food

When it comes to Super Bowl parties, there’s no need to be fancy with food. Just remember these two things: savory and sweet. You can never go wrong with classics like barbecue, hotdogs, or tacos. Make your party standout by keeping food presentation cohesive to the Super Bowl theme, if you are feeling up for the challenge try to make a Super Bowl Snack Stadium. For dessert, make some Super Bowl-themed sweets (check out delicious recipes on Pinterest!). 

Lots of Drinks!

A Super Bowl Party is not complete without some refreshing drinks. Think about what kind of drinkers your guests are, and how tipsy you want them to get. Get a beer keg or a cooler full of beer for the occasion.

Of course, not everyone drinks alcohol. Remember to serve fun non-alcoholic drinks for designated drivers and guests who prefer to stay sober. If there are kids attending think of what they would enjoy.

Ready to host the most unforgettable party ever? Let All Pro Shade Concepts get your backyard ready for parties all year round with high-quality shade solutions.

Home Upgrades for 2020

2019 will be ending very soon, and a new decade will start. As the new year draws near, you should start thinking about how you can refresh your home for 2020. Think about the home projects and upgrades you've put off over the years.

Don’t know where to start? Here’s our list of home upgrades you can add to your home this 2020.

Solar Panels

The road to sustainability and self-sufficiency is long, and the first step is renewable energy. Arizona has plenty of sun, so harvesting its power for your own use only makes sense. Solar panels can help significantly cut your utility costs. It also serves as a backup when grid power is down. When air conditioning costs are at its highest in the summer, you'll be glad to be harvesting your own power.

Going solar not only brings your monthly power bill down, it benefits the environment. It’s definitely worth looking into if you want a more self-sufficient home.

Entertainment or Game Room

If you have an extra room that’s been gathering dust, one good way to make use of it is to transform it into an entertainment or gaming room. While it’s okay to keep your entertainment electronics in the living room, an entertainment room sets an exclusive ambiance, where you can binge-watch Netflix films, watch sports, or play your favorite video games.

Wow your guests with a new pool table, air hockey table, dart boards, ping pong table, or poker setup. Get a projector and install a wet bar to host the greatest super bowl parties for years to come.

Awnings & Patio Shades

Do you need more shade in your backyard?  Sun protection is a must in the intense Arizona sun. Poolside Retractable Awnings can add some much-needed shade to your pool. With some shade, you can extend your swimming time without worrying about getting sunburned. Arizonians love to have the awnings extend over the pool, eliminating the hassle of setting up an umbrella. Awnings can also expand your outdoor entertainment space when you invite friends over. Motorized Patio shades, another luxurious addition, can reduce the glare and heat coming into your patio, so you can enjoy cooler areas with the sun blocked.

Home Automation System

Home automation is undoubtedly a necessary addition to today's modern home. It lets you control almost anything in your home. And you don't need to buy a huge system right off the bat, either. You can start with small upgrades like lighting and climate control using readily-available devices like Google Home or Amazon Echo/Alexa.

Install responsive sensors for motorized patio shades and awnings, so it retracts or opens automatically depending on the sunlight exposure and wind speed. You can also try sleek, motorized, interior blinds/shades - where you can set them to retract or extend based on a timer. With home automation, the possibilities are endless!

Of all these home upgrades, getting shade solutions is the easiest. It’s an effective way to cut cooling costs during the summer, and you can enjoy other benefits for the rest of the year. All Pro Shade Concepts is Arizona’s most reliable shade solution installer. If you’re not sure what shade solution your home needs, we do FREE HOME INSPECTIONS, no pressure to buy!

Top 5 Gifts for Arizona Homeowners

It’s almost Christmas - we all know what that means! The streets are going to be crowded with Christmas shoppers looking for last-minute deals on gift items. Trinkets, new clothes, and toys are nice, but if you want to give your loved ones something that lasts, or if you simply want to minimize the clutter in your home, look for a gift that everyone can enjoy. Here are top 5 gift ideas for Arizona Homeowners.

Multimedia Projector

Be it movie or game night, a multimedia projector will level up any entertainment space. Create a new tradition with your family where you all come together for one night each week to enjoy your favorite flicks. The great thing about a multimedia projector is that you can set it up indoors, or outdoors if the weather’s nice! Tip: create a driver-in aesthetic to your setup by adding some rugs/pillows on the floor of your patio or living room. Don’t forget the popcorn!

Outdoor Firepit

Every Arizona backyard should have a lovely firepit. There, you can gather your family ‘round for some campfire goodies - smores, hot cocoa, eggnog, barbecue, you name it! A fire pit creates a cozy spot in your backyard, and, when set up right, can also double as a grill. Thanks to Arizona’s warmer climate, you only need a single firepit to make your backyard suitable for winter family gatherings.

Hanging Patio Swings

Choosing outdoor furniture is easy if you go with the basics - but why not do something extra for your family and guests? A swing is a whimsical addition to your patio. It creates a space for you to relax and take in the fresh air while being gently lulled to sleep. Tip: Make sure to add some roll shades to your patio to reduce the sun’s glare in the morning. 

Zipper Patio Shades

Customized Zipper Patio Shades are a great gift for anyone looking to upgrade their backyard. More than protection from debris and UV rays, it also maximizes outdoor living space. Motors would be a great addition too because it makes the shades easier to roll back when not in use. Make sure to pick colors that match or complement your home’s style!

Motorized Retractable Awnings

Need more room in your yard for social gatherings? Motorized awnings are the best way to add a little more space in your backyard. As an added value, it works best with sun and wind sensors, so it can automatically open or retract based on the weather. The best part? You can make use of it all year!

Zipper-Sealed Patio Shades are a great addition to your patio, backyard deck, or any outdoor living space. This installation gives many benefits such as reducing the amount of heat and UV rays, significantly reduces energy cost, to name a few. During the fall, parts of your home may be exposed to leaves, dust, and debris. Here’s how zipper-sealed patio shades can protect your outdoor living area.

Arizona is prone to strong winds. The zipper-lock shade feature that holds the screen in rails makes it durable enough to withstand the elements. This makes your patio perfect for board games and the like. You don’t have to worry about your stuff getting blown away, as the screens can break the blow of the wind. You can also add wind sensors and motors so when the wind gets too strong for the patio shades to handle, it will automatically retract.

Versatile and Customizable

Zipper-sealed patio shades can be customized according to your home’s needs and style. You can choose the type of fabric and colors. Motorization is also a great addition to zipper-sealed shades. This allows you to control your shades at the touch of a button. You may also add sun sensors that will automatically roll your shades down when it gets too hot out. 

Fade Resistant Screen Fabrics

All Pro Shade Concepts uses only Textilene® to make sure the screens are of high quality and fade resistant. This type of fabric can block up to 90% of the sun’s rays and can significantly reduce your energy cost during summer.

During colder months, it can help you create a cozier environment for your family and guests.

Replace Those Summer Exposed, Faded Window Sun Screens

Sunscreens are essential to protect yourself, your family and your furniture from the sun’s glare. If your sunscreens are looking a little worn out and faded from the previous summers, it’s time for a change. Here are the reasons why you should consider replacing your sunscreens after the summer.

Faded Screens Are Ineffective Against Heat

Depending on the type of screens you have, getting blasted by the Arizona sun during the day may have caused your screens to fade, therefore weakening its resistance to heat. Upgrade your sunscreens with a fabric that’s resistant to high heat and other elements. Premium Textilene Screen Materials are always the best option.

Enhance Your Curb Appeal

Old screens don’t look great on your home’s exterior. Dented and dull sun screens are a no-no when it comes to curb appeal. This may lower your home’s value. After all, appearance is important for real estate properties. Invest in handmade, custom sun screens to match your home’s aesthetic. Make sure to choose a color that matches your exterior.

Better Screens for Fall

Remember that you don’t only need sun screens during summer. Torn mesh screens won’t protect you from other elements. If you want to keep your window open to let in the nice fall breeze, sun screens can protect your home from falling leaves and other debris. It also provides the privacy you need, so you’re free to do as you please in every room in your home, without worrying about nosy neighbors.

Save on Cooling Costs

If you’re an SRP customer in Arizona, you can qualify for the SRP Shade Screen Rebate program. Work with a trusted and preferred contractor that uses Premium Textilene sun screens. These screens block up to 80% of the sun’s rays. With SRP, you can get up to $0.80 per square foot reimbursed on your sun screen installation!

Try Something New For Shade

Motorized Standard Track Shades for Doors & Windows have been growing in popularity here in The Valley. Easily control the amount of sunlight entering your home with the touch of a button. All Pro Shade Concepts is Arizona's #1 Trusted Shade Installations for residential and commercial projects.

How To Enjoy Fall in Your Arizona Yard

The leaves are transforming into shades of mesmerizing golds, reds, and oranges. The temperature gets cooler at this time of the month. In Arizona, where the summers are longer, the Fall season is a welcoming sight, and it’s the best time to relax outdoors. Here’s how you can prepare your backyard this fall, for your and your family to enjoy. 

Make Your Yard More Inviting

Just because pool season is almost over doesn’t mean your yard has to sit idly. Fall is one of the best times to take advantage of your outdoor space. Add some outdoor rugs to your patio create a warm and cozy space. You may also change your slip covers to match fall colors. Make sure you install patio shades to block out the sun’s glare without disrupting the view. Motorized patio shades with sensors are ideal, because you can program it to automatically roll up or down depending on the sun or wind.

Use Awnings to Expand Your Guest Space

Awnings are a perfect way to expand your guest space and add a little more shade to your backyard. Water and mildew proof awnings are great for the fall season too. Retractable awnings with wind sensors are easy to use. The sensors make sure that your awnings retract when the wind starts blowing too hard.

Protect Your Patio from Elements

Wind in the fall season cools your outdoor patio area and leave an atmosphere of cozy weather in the yard. If you have a backyard full of trees and plants, debris can easily get into your patio area. To prevent this, use zipper-sealed patio shades. Zipper-sealed patio shades keeps the debris and bugs away from your patio while letting the cool breeze in.

Getting your backyard in shape for the cooler months is not rocket science. Improving your outdoor living spaces adds more value to your home, too! If you’re not sure where to install shade solutions, schedule a FREE home inspection with us. No pressure to buy!
