Does Your Home Need More Privacy?

Does your home need more privacy? If you live in Arizona, you probably know this problem well. Not having enough privacy is a common problem in parts of Arizona where developers tend to maximize profit. Homes in Gilbert, Queen Creek & West Valley are built so close together, not leaving much to the imagination of prying eyes or curious neighbors.

People passing by can see you go about your daily routine through your windows. Having a nice afternoon in your backyard patio? Your neighbors can see you from the second floor of their homes. When you just want to relax and enjoy solitude, the last thing you want to see is your neighbors staring at you. How do you solve this privacy problem?


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).

Build Fences or Walls


This seems to be the pretty obvious solution. But first, you have to pick the kind of fence that works for you. You can go for the usual wooden fence, or a stone wall topped with wooden fencing. Mixing it up a bit with interesting materials such as glass, ornate ironwork or different kinds of wood can get rid of the claustrophobic feeling you get from dull fences. Just make sure to follow your area’s Property Line & Fence laws.

 

 

Consider Lattices


One good way to gain privacy is to use lattices. Lattices can make your yard look more cozy and inviting. If your yard is looking a little grey, you can add some color by growing vines like Bougainvillea or Cat’s Claw unto your lattice. While lattices allow air flow and natural light into your yard, it also serves as a good visual barrier.

Get Sun Screens on Your Windows


If you need some privacy from your neighbors and shade from the glaring sun, shade solutions can hit two birds with one stone. It takes a bit of work to put up fences and lattices, and not everyone has the luxury of time. You can always ask a professional to install shade solutions for you. Sun screens are great all-year round visual barriers and it helps you cool your home. You can choose your custom screen materials- like fabric, where you can decide the amount of visibility you want from the outside.

 

 

Get Patio Shades or Awnings


Retractable awnings and patio roll shades are awesome options that will also let you enjoy your patio without worrying about being seen from your neighbor’s second floor window. You'll be amazed at how much more privacy you'll feel with these simple shade solutions. Just as the window screens, you can decide the amount of visibility you prefer with your custom patio shades, along with your choice of track style.

Do Some Landscaping


There are many ways to use plants and trees to gain more privacy, and there are a number of trees that can grow in the Arizona climate. Trees like the Desert Willow, Blue Palo Verde and Arizona Rosewood are perfect for landscaping. Hedges and other plants are also a great way to block your neighbors’ view. If your yard space is a little small, experiment with raised plant beds, huge planters and layered gardens and turn your yard into a quaint little getaway.

Get Your Arizona Home Ready for Nice Weather

It’s been a long, hot summer, but it’s finally time to get your Arizona backyard and patio ready for the cooler fall and winter months! Check out these home makeover tips just in time for your outdoor soirees.


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).

Mood Lighting


Nothing sets the mood like outdoor lighting when you’re entertaining. While standard overhead lighting on your patio is practical, it can make your outdoor party seem drab and dull. String market lights or lanterns across your entire yard to light up the whole space and make your yard and patio more inviting. Uplighting on trees makes a dramatic impression, and walkway lighting is a practical and trendy way to draw attention to your entertainment space.

 

Patio Shades are an amazing feature to add to your Arizona Backyard.

Add Patio Shades


Patio shades are another option that will improve your entertainment space. Make your backyard patio comfortable for your guests, by opting for a zipper-sealed track- as it helps to keep out bugs and blowing debris out without sacrificing the fresh air. Go for premium options by automating your patio shades, controlling it with a touch of a button via wall switch or smartphone. All Pro Shade Concepts utilizes only the best, top-of-the-line motors by Somfy

 

New Patio Furniture


Labor day is the symbolic “end of summer” holiday, so many stores try to clear out all their summer merchandise to make way for fall and holiday decor. Patio furniture is no longer advertised, which means you may be able to snag a great deal on a brand new outdoor dining set or outdoor seating collection. Your best bet at this point is to try searching clearance sections in store and online.

 

Extend Your Entertainment Space


Awnings are the perfect way to increase the amount of space for your guests to mingle. Place a few extra tables and chairs for your gathering underneath your awning, and they will be protected from the sun & rain. If you choose a retractable awning, you'll be able to retract the awning back when your guests leave, protecting the longevity of your fabric, while hiding your awning discreetly. All Pro Shade Concepts are the Arizona Trusted Experts in the installation of static and retractable awnings.

 

Landscape


As the heat of the summer drops, start thinking about getting your winter grass seeded. Most Arizona lawns consist of Bermuda grass in the summer and Ryegrass in the winter. In the summer, Bermuda grass is able to tolerate the city's triple-digit temperatures. But, Bermuda grass is dormant during the winter months. For this reason, if you want to keep your lawn looking beautiful &  green all year, you have to plant winter rye grass. October is the prime month to start scalping your lawn & planting your Ryegrass seeds.

 

Outdoor Games


Lawn games are a great way to enjoy the outdoors with your family and inspire a little friendly competition. Bocce ball is becoming popular again, and cornhole (or bean-bag-toss, depending on where you’re from) is always a classic game to play. You may be able to find lawn games like ladder ball and croquet on clearance at certain stores this time of year too!

The Most Popular Home Upgrades in Paradise Valley

One of the wealthiest suburbs of the Phoenix metropolitan area sits just northwest of the city: Paradise Valley. PV is well known for its luxurious resorts, immaculate golf courses, high end dining, and beautiful homes. The overall cost of living in Paradise Valley is well over three times the cost of the Arizona average, and the majority of that cost is the result of the housing market. If you’re looking for extravagant home upgrades, PV is the place to see it.


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).

There are countless upgrades that can be done to the inside and outside of your home to not only increase resale value, but also create a unique space that you can truly be proud of.

Furniture


If the thought of major home renovation seems overwhelming, furniture can be a great place to start your upgrades when you’re not ready to make the commitment to construction. Purchasing high quality furniture may feel like a big blow to your wallet ($$$) but you’ll be saving more in the long run since better quality furniture tends to last much longer.

 

 

Pieces that get a lot of use, such as couches, should definitely be durable and last you a while. Outdoor patio seating should be especially well-made in order to be able to stand up to the harsh conditions of the Arizona elements.

Motorized Shades


Worried about protecting your new seating or outdoor entertainment spaces from the sun and other elements? Motorized patio shades and awnings are a great way to accomplish this. They are much faster and easier to deploy than individual furniture covers. They can even be installed to be controlled with your smartphone to make it even easier! Even indoor furniture can become sun-bleached, so why not take your sun protection one step further? Install sun screens on the outside of the home to prolong the life of your upholstery.

 

Bonus: Sunscreens help reduce cooling costs by up to 25%, and All Pro Shade Concepts is an SRP certified contractor. More on what that means for you here.

Lighting and Entertainment


Outdoor kitchens and bars are a major staple in many Paradise Valley homes, and they are a great way to keep the inside of the house cool while you do the cooking and entertaining outside. With flat screen televisions and full size refrigerators outside with your grill though, you’ll want to take extra precautions to keep all of these things protected.

Misting Systems


If you’re interested in extending your living space to the outdoors, consider a misting system. We all know the Arizona heat can be unbearable and can really put a damper on any plans involving the outdoors, but a misting system can make the patio a much more pleasant place to be and it uses less water than you may think. Be sure to consult a professional when it comes to installing misters though, you may need additional pumps to ensure your misters are working properly and not acting as a sprinkler system instead.

Protect Your Children with Shade Solutions

 

Children are precious, and parents do their best to protect them from anything they can control. One thing that parents can do to help prevent children from developing skin cancer is limiting the amount of harmful UV rays from sun exposure your child gets.

Not only do we have sunburns to worry about, we also have to worry about overheating in the hot Arizona summers. You don’t like the option of keeping them confined in the house, so what can you do to your outdoor space to protect your kids? You get shade solutions installed!

 

Here are the best ways for you to protect your children with the right shade solutions.

Patio Shades

Installing patio shades (roll-up shades that enclose your patio) can reduce sun and heat exposure. Customize your shades with different options: manual or motorized control, screen privacy transparency level, or get the zipper sealed patio shades to keep bugs and debris out. Get full luxury with smartphone control options.

Awnings

If you don’t have a patio or want to provide a space with optional shade, awnings are the perfect solution. There are 2 types of awnings, one is traditionally static and the other is a retractable awning. If you have a part of your home by a pool area, attach a retractable awning to expand when you want, and retract when you want more sun. All Pro Shade Concepts are experts in the professional installation of shade solutions. They offer many screen fabric options and only utilize the best shade control motor mechanisms. Convenience will never be problem for you since you can just easily control it thru your smartphone application.

Sun Screens

Keep your home cool for your kids to seek refuge from the Arizona heat. The best way to keep your home comfortable without breaking the bank is to have quality sun screens installed on your windows. Sun screens filter much of the solar heat gain that enters your home and keeps your AC operating efficiently without having to work as hard. All Pro Shade Concepts Exterior SunControl and Textilene Sun Screens block up to 80-90% of the sun’s rays and heat that will let you save up a chunk of money on your cooling bills this summer, up to 30%!  Plus, compared to blinds and shutters, sun screens are more cost-effective in terms of durability and performance.

With the Arizona summer right around the corner, give your kids the protection from the sun that they need. Make sure they always wear sunscreen and take breaks from the sun and heat in the shade.

Shade Solutions Every House in Arizona Should Have

Living in Arizona, you know you’re in for a great deal of sun. Whether you are hiding out from the summer heat in your home, or enjoying the incredible weather of the spring or fall in your yard, shade solutions are key to making a comfortable Arizona home. Shading your windows with sun screens can bring significant savings in cooling costs, and shade structures in your yard protect you from the damaging UV rays of the sun.

Awnings  

All Pro Shade Concepts provides traditional and retractable awnings for cooling comfort from the Arizona sun. All of our awnings are made with high quality fabrics and come with a 10-year warranty.

All retractable awnings have the option of being motorized whether open roll or enclosed in a cassette. With motorization, we use Somfy motors which have options for one channel or four channel remotes. We now offer MyLink by Somfy which allows you to control your shades or awnings from your smartphone. To top it off the motors have a 5 year manufacturers warranty.

When it comes to the fabric, we use both Sunbrella and Sattler which come in a variety of colors. Both have a 10 year manufacturers warranty. We also have the ability to add a drop screen to the end of an awning as well as an adjustable pitch which will allow you to raise or lower the awning to the pitch you desire.

Patio Shades

Enjoying Arizona’s outdoor life is so much more pleasant with our roll shades for your patio. We can incorporate advanced technology wind sensors, motorized rollers and smart-phone controls to make your shades easier to use.

Patio shades are a great way to enjoy your patio without being blasted with the sun. We carry a variety of patio shade options including manual open roll shades and manual roll shade enclosed in a box which has 6 powder coat colors to choose from. All shades have the option of being motorized either open roll or enclosed in a box.  To secure the shades we can use cable guides, tracks or zipper shades but all shade options come standard with steel cable guides.

 

Alumawood Shade

Whether you’re attaching a shaded area to your home, or building a freestanding private retreat, an Alumawood® Shade Structure has the design flexibility needed to make your vision a reality.

With the embossed surface of an Alumawood® Shade Structure, you’ll enjoy the beauty of a richly textured wood grain finish — with a fraction of the maintenance and upkeep. Unlike wood, Alumawood® Shade Structures won’t crack, peel, warp, or rot. They’re also termite-proof, won’t burn, and never need painting.

You can choose two different product lines for this structure. Laguna Lattice, it can reduce 40%-60% from sun exposure without screening the refreshing breeze. There’s Newport Solid Roof for maximum protection. All of these structures are safe because it won’t burn, crack, peel warp, rot or attract termites.
