Everything Your Arizona Home Needs During the Extreme Summers

Arizona can be unbearable during July and August. The intense heat can make us lethargic and unproductive, and the next thing you know, the summer’s over. This is why you should prepare your home for the summer, if you haven’t yet. It’s only going to get hotter from here on out. Here’s everything your Arizona home needs during extreme summers:

Install Screens and Roll Shades

While it’s good to let natural light in once in a while, a good amount of heat in your home comes from your windows. Installing shade screens on your windows can help block up to 80% of the sun’s rays, in turn, cooling your home. SRP customers in Arizona may also enjoy rebates when they get window shade screens installed professionally. Motorized interior roll shades are also a  great option if you want to open or close the shades at the touch of a button. 

Clean or Replace Your Air Filters

Because of the dry weather, dust particles get stuck everywhere, especially in your AC’s air filters. Forgetting to replace or clean them may cause your air conditioning to malfunction, affecting its efficiency. The heat in Phoenix can go as high as 115 degrees, so it’s best to get your AC serviced at the start of summer.

Keep Your Backyard Cool

The heat shouldn’t be an excuse for you to avoid the outdoors during summer. It only takes a few steps to prepare the perfect backyard for you to relax in. First things first - expand your entertainment space with awnings and patio shades. This will make sure you get enough shade throughout the day, while enjoying your pool or barbecuing. Misting systems are also a great way to regulate your backyard’s temperature. 

Conduct a Home Energy Audit

You spend a lot more time cooling your home during summer than the rest of the year. Because this alone raises your electric bill, it’s important to make sure everything else in your home is working properly. Have a professional conduct a home energy audit for you. They will check your home’s insulation, lighting, use of electronics, and check for leaks. If you’d rather do the audit yourself, Energy.gov has written a simple home energy audit guide for you to follow in their blog.

Ways to Prepare Your Home for Monsoon Season Storms

The increasing humidity can only mean one thing - Arizona’s monsoon season is here! From June through September, Arizonans may experience high winds, heavy rains, and even thunderstorms. So how does one go about preparing for harsh weather conditions? Quick answer: It all starts at home. Here are ways to prepare your home for monsoon season storms.

Protect your shades and awnings

The monsoon feeds on the summer heat and moisture, so naturally, the weather can be a bit erratic. One day the sun’s heat could be unbearable - and the next thing you know, the winds are howling and rain starts pouring. Strong winds can cause damage to your awnings and patio shades.

One good way to protect them is to use sun and wind sensors. Somfy sensors can automatically open or retract your motorized shades and awnings based on weather conditions, so you don’t have to worry about leaving them unattended.

Check your roof and gutters

Before heavy rains start pouring, make sure to do a routine check your gutters. Monsoon winds can send debris flying into your gutters, clogging them. This can cause rain water to overflow and lead to water damage.

You should also get your roof inspected the roof before and after rough storms, to make sure there are no damages that can cause leaks inside your home. Routine check might take some work, but it’s better than spending hundreds of dollars in repairs.

Inspect Your Windows and Screens

If you didn’t get the chance to do a full inspection of your home during spring, now might be the best time to do it. It’s important to check all openings in your home, especially windows. Look for holes that may cause debris and bugs to get in. If you have window screens, make sure they’re attached properly too, as loose screens panels may cause damage to your windows. If you’re unsure, have your windows inspected by reliable shade installers in your area.

Brush up on Safety Practices

Monsoon Safety Awareness week (June 14-19) may have passed, but it’s never too late to educate yourself. The Arizona Emergency Information Network (AzEIN) has compiled a list of articles that can help you and the rest of your household prepare for weather hazards. In their website, you’ll learn how to build a basic emergency supplies kit, flood preparedness, and even pet safety during harsh weather conditions.

6 Effective Ways You Can Lower Your Energy Bills this Summer

During the summer, people want to stay indoors and escape the heat. This is especially true if you live in states like Arizona. With the rising cost of electricity, plus the demand for cooling, how do you stay within your budget? As always, we’ve got you covered. Here are 6 effective ways you can lower your energy bills this summer.

Inspect Your Appliances

We’re almost halfway through 2019, so it only makes sense for you to give your appliances due routine check. Start with the cooling appliances like your air conditioning. If you keep your AC running while the filter is dirty, your room won’t be as cool as it should be. Make sure to have a professional look big appliances like your AC or fridge to see if they need some cleaning or repair. There are also small changes you can do yourself, like switching your lights from incandescent to LED.

Install Zipper-Sealed Patio Shades

Your patio is a good place to entertain guests, but it can be too hot during the summer. Zipper-sealed patio shades can help keep the heat away without obstructing the view of the backyard. It also keeps the debris and insects out. It also protects your furniture from intense UV rays leading to bleaching or sun damage.

Use Awnings to Expand Your Entertainment Space

Staying indoors for a long period of time is guaranteed to raise your bills. You’ll be tempted to use the AC more than usual, as well as other entertainment appliances in your living room. This is why you should extend your entertainment space with awnings. If you have a pool, a pool-side awning add the extra shade you need while taking a break from swimming.

Use the Oven Less

It doesn’t hurt to add a little variety to your usual meals. Summer is a great opportunity to try other recipes while reducing your bills. Take a break from using the electric oven and try eating more cold or no-cook food. This also cuts down on preparation and cooking time so you’ll have more time for family. Make more salads, smoothies (helps to beat the heat!), sandwiches, and of course, start eating more fruits. Cooking outside is great too. Who doesn’t love a good summer barbecue?

Get Quality Sun Screens

Sun screens for your windows look great and will improve your curb appeal, but it also makes our home energy efficient. Good sun screens can block up to 80% of the sun’s rays and can keep the interior of your home cool all summer long. It helps get rid of that annoying glare from the harsh sun. Plus, it also gives you privacy and security, as it blocks the view of your home from the outside.

Make Use of Rebate Programs

Always check your local energy provider’s promotions and rebates. Some utility companies encourage their customers to switch to more energy-efficient lifestyle. In Arizona, for example, local power provider SRP provides rebates of $0.80 per square foot of window screens. All Pro Shade Concepts is a trusted and preferred contractor for The SRP Shade Screen Rebate Program.

Becoming Arizona’s most trusted shade installer is not easy, but All Pro Shades Concepts was able to pull it off.

One business closes and another comes to the rescue

New hope for victims of a 'shady' deal
Posted: 6:00 AM, May 14, 2019

So let's say you give thousands of dollars to a business and it closes without filling your order.

It happened to people who trusted Sun City Awning in El Mirage and its owner Brian Beachy.

But because of the kindness of strangers, some customers are actually getting their awnings installed.

We were there when workers were attaching Tony and Susan Spicola's electric awnings to their Peoria house.

Tony let me know he'd given Sun City Awning $1,600. It's 50% of his full order and what the business demanded upfront, and with the closure, all of that money just seemed to be gone.

Sun City Awning took deposits from dozens of people. The state's Registrar of Contractors revoked their license and now has more than 20 complaints they're looking into.

Owner Brian Beachy's other business, Awnings by Design in Scottsdale, is also closed.

When Tony let me know about his issue, I put him in touch with the awnings manufacturer Eclipse Shading Systems.

They say they did not receive money for products that weren't delivered, but they agreed to deliver Tony's awnings for just the $1,600 he still owed on the order.

Then the question -- who would install them? Enter Robert Mulvin and All Pro Shade Concepts.

Robert let me know he wanted to help these customers, so we put him in touch with the Spicolas.

Robert and his workers came to their house on a hot day recently. And in just a few hours, they made Tony and Susan's backyard dreams come true.

And they didn't charge the Spicolas a penny to do it!

He says he wants to help as many people as he can who paid Sun City Awning and need their awnings installed.

Robert says he's owned All Pro Shade Concepts for years and plans to be around for many more years.

A couple of red warning signs here: Tony says he was not allowed to use a credit card AND he had to pay half upfront.

If a customer has any concerns about an installation, the All Pro Team addresses them without hesitation and as soon as possible.

Prepare Home for Visitors During Tourist Season

It is spring again in Arizona and the springtime festivities are in full swing. Extremely hot during summer and very cold during winter, springtime is the prime time for doing outdoor activities and is also the time when tourists come to visit. The March to May season can be some of the busiest with Spring training Baseball, rodeo and other cultural events scheduled for the season. With the influx of tourists, it is very likely that friends and family could come calling and it would be best if you are prepared to entertain them. One of the best ways to prepare your home for visitors is to create and protect your entertainment space.


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).

 

Beat the Heat


The hot Arizona sun can be relentless and providing a shaded space can mean the difference between having fun and suffering in the midday sun.  Create more shaded entertainment space for barbecues and pool parties by adding awnings. Awnings create more shaded space where you can entertain during the day time. Prepare your home for visitors by installing awnings near the pool area or over the back patio. 

 

It would also be a lot more comfortable if you could grill at your barbecue in the shade and avoid getting grilled by the midday sun yourself, awnings or patio shades (depending on your grill's location) are perfect to provide protection from the sun.

Create a comfortable grilling area to cook up some delicious meals for your friends & family. All Pro Patio Shades are perfect for your next outdoor event.

Night and Day Protection


The hot sun is not the only problem when entertaining your guests. Even at night, the wind can bring dust particles and debris. There is also the problem of insects which can land on and contaminate your food. Mosquitoes can also be another problem when entertaining outdoors. Protect yourself by installing window screens and patio shades. Zipper sealed patio shades can protect you from the dust and bugs while still allowing the fresh breeze to refresh everyone.

Indoor Entertaining


While the beautiful weather brings you and your guest outside, you can also prepare your home for indoor fun. Fresh window sun screens can provide sun protection, while allowing a wonderful breeze into your living areas or bedrooms. Ditch the eye sore of faded or torn screens before your guests arrive.

Prepare for AZ's Monsoon Season


Arizona’s monsoon season can be brutal. For your peace of mind, All Pro Shades Concepts can install Eolis 3D WireFree™ and Soliris RTS Sun and Wind Sensors to your motorized shades!

Arizona Home Flipper Tips

You might have seen it on television: a run-down house turned into a welcoming home ready to be bought and lived in. Reality television makes house flipping look like a piece of cake, but if you’re just getting started, you need to make sure you read up on the nitty-gritty details. Everyone has to start somewhere, so we’ve come up with a list basic of the things you need to know before you consider house-flipping.


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).

Gauge the Market


First things first - what does your target market need? Location is usually the biggest factor. If your potential buyer has a new family, for example, you would want to flip a house in a good neighborhood near schools and parks.

 

Work with the Best People


The key to a successful home-flip is a good crew. Share your vision with the most reliable suppliers and construction crew you can find. Always make sure to check the previous projects they worked on so you’d have an idea about the quality of their work. It also helps to maintain a good working relationship with them after a project, so you’d have a go-to crew.

Carefully Plan the Renovation


Once you’ve chosen a house to flip, think about the scope of your project. Being realistic with your timeframe and budget will save you from a lot of trouble. Think about what the property really needs to be marketable.

 

Attract more valuable buyers with patio shades that turn their backyard into an oasis that shades them from the sun & heat, while letting the nice breeze in. Many available options like sun & wind sensor, motorized/manual.

Retractable Awnings will increase the amount of outdoor entertainment space for your prospective home buyers. This is especially attractive to buyers looking to spend lots of time lounging by a pool or having guests over for outdoor parties.

Every Arizona home need sun screens, not only to cool down homes from the blazing summers, but to provide privacy and style. Don't lose buyers due to faded or damaged screens, adding fresh screens is an easy way to attract buyers that want a turn-key home.

When in doubt, always refer to your location. If you’re house-flipping in Arizona, it’s important to have good shade solutions. Work with a reliable shade installer that understands marketability factors. Apart from providing privacy, window screens can instantly improve a home’s curb appeal. Patio shades and awnings can keep a home cool during the summer, making it energy efficient.

Elegant sunscreens, manual or motorized patio shades and awnings: Quality shade solutions from All Pro Shade Concepts, Arizona’s trusted shades installer.

Keep it simple


Potential buyers would most likely want to add their personal touch to the property, so going all-out with style isn’t advisable. You can never go wrong with the necessities - good plumbing, shade solutions, a fresh coat of paint, and even a little landscaping. But never go overboard.

Clear Signs Your Window Treatments Need To Be Replaced

We all want to greet the new year with a fresh outlook. A thorough home inspection must be done at least once a year, and if you haven’t yet, this is the time to do so. Check for things that should be thrown away, repaired, refurbished or replaced. Inspecting your window treatments & shades is a good starting point. Faded awnings, window screens and patio shades can be an eyesore and can decrease your Arizona home’s overall appeal.

Here are some signs your window screens, awnings, and patio shades need replacement.


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).

Fabric or Mesh Tearing


Let’s start with the obvious: low quality window screens are often brittle and susceptible to tearing. Tearing can also be caused by curious children, pets, and even rodents! When you see small tears in your window screen, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a gaping hole. This is a clear sign that you should replace them with high quality material, to ensure they last a long time.  

All Pro Shade Concepts is a trusted and preferred contractor for The SRP Shade Screen Rebate Program.

Our hand-made sun screens can be customized to fit your home!

Discoloration or Fading


When the sun screen mesh becomes discolored, it won’t do a great job giving you the shade and privacy you need. It may be a sign that the material is about to give way. DIY solutions for discoloration or fading are usually temporary, and not visually attractive. It’s always best to consult a professional.  

Get high quality fabrics for your awnings. Awnings from All Pro Shade Concepts come with a 10-year warranty. 

Other Visible Damage


While other visible damage like dented or bent frames or mesh can be repaired, it’s best to check first if the material is flimsy to begin with. Repairing them is definitely not worth it if they’re bound to break again. The same goes for roll shades that keep getting stuck. Consider installing motorized patio shades and adding wind and sun sensors for your peace of mind.

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.
