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.

A Basketball Hoop


Whether you have a son or a daughter, or even just an active couple, a hoop is never a bad gift idea. It will encourage your kids to play outside more and be active. It’s also a great way to spend time with your kids. To surprise them, wait until the last minute to get a basketball hoop installed in your backyard and unveil it on Christmas morning!  

Patio Furniture & Outdoor Grill


If your outdoor space is looking a little empty, you can liven it up with a bit of patio furniture. Creating a space your whole family can use is one of the grandest gifts you can give. Give them a place to gather during lazy weekend afternoons. Lounge around and talk to them about how their week went. If your family is the type to host small gatherings, an outdoor grill is an essential add-on.  

A Hot Tub


Mothers and fathers who work all day (and night, for those with small children) deserve a breather. Is there a better way to relax than to soak in a hot tub after a long day? Have the hot tub placed on your patio so you can enjoy the fresh air as you relax. For a small add on, buy an outdoor side table or a floating table to hold your refreshments.

Patio Shades


Patio shades don’t have to block your view as you lounge around or relax in your tub. You can choose the visibility level of the fabrics used and even have them motorized so you can roll it up or down at a touch of a button. Patio shades All Pro Shade Concepts have the option of being motorized. You can also add sun and wind sensors for peace of mind.

A Pool!


This one is quite huge and your family will definitely notice the big hole in your backyard as you’re having it constructed. The element of surprise might not be present but they will definitely hold their breath in anticipation. A pool encourages family time and lets them stay healthy by keeping them active. It’s also grand enough to serve as several holidays’ worth of gifts!

Awnings


If you already have a pool, install some awnings to serve as poolside shade. It will give your family a place to unwind and relax together. While it serves as an extension of your home’s entertainment space, it’s also a practical gift, as it can protect indoor and outdoor furniture from harmful UV rays.  All Pro Shade Concepts’ traditional and retractable awnings are made with high quality fabric and come with a 10 year warranty.

How To Maximize The Natural Breeze In Your Arizona Home

Arizona living at it's best!

 

It’s no secret that Arizona can see some sweltering summers. What most people who aren’t locals don’t know though, is how beautiful our spring seasons can be. On average, an Arizona spring season sees temperatures from 77℉ to 85℉. With great weather and sunshine to be enjoyed, there’s no reason to be cooped up inside and running up your electric bill with air conditioning.

 
Here are some tips on how to make the most of spring and invite some Arizona breeze into your home -

Open Windows

The most comfortable way to enjoy the breeze is opening a few windows in your home. Not only do you get fresh air in and circulating around your home, but it’s an energy efficient way to cool down a space.

While the weather is nice enough to open windows, the sun will still come in and heat up your space. However, you can still enjoy having a few windows open and still block out the harsh sun. By installing sun screens from All Pro Shade Concepts, you can have both a breeze and block the sun!

Sun screens are installed on windows in your home and are able to keep a room cooler - blocking 80-90% of the sun’s rays - while still inviting in a breeze. The best part is that it doesn’t block your view from the window. While you’re saving about 20% in cooling costs, you can enjoy the beautiful weather that Arizona has to offer.


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). 

Take advantage of the extraordinary weather! All Pro specializes in the precise installation of awnings, window sun screens, or patio shades to reduce the amount of sun enters your home, while letting the breeze in!

Spend Time On Your Patio

The easiest way to feel a breeze when at home is to just step outside! Enjoy the sights and sounds of nature and bask in the great weather before summer comes. When outside though, you are exposed to the sun’s damaging UV rays. While you could put on sunscreen and generously reapply every 2 hours, that doesn’t help when the sun is directly hitting you and sooner than you know, you’re sweating.

Instead, think about getting an awning or patio shade.

An awning will be retractable with an option to make it motorized, and when purchased with All Pro Shade Concepts, the awning will be made from high quality fabric that will come with a 10-year warranty. If motorized, you could control it with your smartphone and the motor even has a 5-year warranty as well!

Create an Oasis

If you feel that your home needs more than just awning, you could also think about having a patio shade. Patio shades give full coverage from not just the sun but all types of weather. Not only will you be able to enjoy the wonderful spring weather, but you can comfortably enjoy your patio during summer, fall, and winter.

 If there are any ways All Pro Shade Concepts can help you enjoy the beautiful spring weather at your home:

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.

Design a Trendy Outdoor Space

In Arizona, everyone loves being outside when the weather is nice. It’s fun to gather with loved ones in your backyard, forgetting about the intense heat of the summer. Even if it’s a small space you can eventually turn it into something amazing.

Deciding What Shade To Put Up

This is an important thing to consider, especially with the dangers of too much sun exposure. It’s not just setting a simple table and chair outside your house, it’s about making an oasis, a place for entertaining and relaxing. Awnings are a great way to provide shade for your family and friends. There are many awning types that you can choose from with All Pro Shade Concepts. You can choose from stationary to retractable, to portable and motorized. You just have to be very keen in choosing one to match with the type of environment that you have. If your location is windy, stationary awnings are not really recommended but you can always ask an expert at All Pro to help you in making sure that it will endure any impact. Portable awnings are something that can be transported right away to one place or another, so you can definitely use that if you have bigger outdoor space and would often want to alternate spots. For motorized and retractable awnings, these are the common modern shades that are useful to those who want to control your shade with ease. You can easily operate these type of awnings with controls.

 

Alumawood structures are also a shading option that might suit your needs. When you think of the word “wood”, maintenance is something that you keep in mind. But with this type of shading, you don’t have to worry about cracks, peels, warps or even termites. It is actually made out of recycled aluminum so it is a “no maintenance” shading structure option.

 

Think of the benefits that you can get when you install one. Aside from being able to enjoy the outdoors, you’d get to protect your family when you are out under the heat of the sun. It is a balance of style and comfort.

 

Choosing your Style

This is a fun step to create a vision of what you want to achieve in your dream outdoor space. Bring your space to life and make the area inviting to the eye.

 

  • Add furniture – You don’t want to leave the space as empty as it was. So start add furniture that can match the color of your awning or alumawood shade. This is where you can also choose the best style that matches your personality. You may add wooden furniture to add a homey vibe. The cushions and chairs should match with the furniture to make sure it is comfortable and sophisticated. You can also look for neutral colors to create a fresh and calming environment.  If you want to feel glamorous, you may try to place throw and pillows with pretty textures and prints.  If you have vintage furniture at home, don’t just hide it in your stockroom. Match it with pastel and neutral colors and surround it with other antique finds. For modernist, you may try the striped colors of black and white. You can also choose furnitures that is perfectly pain or sharp.

 

 

  • Place Plants –  It is actually plain and simple, but plants can put a scenic appeal for your outdoor space.

 

 

  • Accent Lighting –  If you would want to relax and take a cup of coffee at night, outdoor spaces are the best place to stay. String lights, or bistro lights are commonly used in outdoor spaces. With this, you can achieve a perfect personality of your outdoor space.

What is more relaxing than being able to enjoy nature in your outdoor space? Take advantage of the nice weather and bring your vision into reality with the help of All Pro Shade Concepts. They are the experts in providing The Valley with beautiful shade structures for all design ideas. With all the ideas presented, a trendy outdoor space is very achievable with All Pro Shade Concepts.

5 Benefits of Awnings

1. Add another space for entertainment.

Awnings allow more time for outdoor entertainment. Design your space to your desires. You can have guests over without the worry of them getting burned from sun exposure or wet from rainfall. Enjoy your backyard area with friends and family or create your own private sanctuary.

 

2. Awnings not only add beauty, but can add value to your home's market value.

Placing an awning over a patio area creates more livable space- and consequently equity in your home's value. They bring more appeal to homeowners that want an outdoor space to relax and enjoy the weather, without the worry of the sun.  

3. Retractable Awnings give you control of your patio space.

Retractable awnings give you the convenience of controlling whether you want the shade, or not. Retract and extend your awning depending on how much sun or shade you desire. 

4. Awnings can reduce energy costs.

Awnings reduce direct solar heat that is observed through windows and can save you up to 23% on your annual cooling energy costs in the summer. If you choose the retractable awnings, your savings go even further. Retracting awnings during the winter allows the sun to assist in warming your home -throughout the year!

5. Protect your home from the Sun's UV rays, rain, or snow.

Installing awnings can protect your outdoor space from the weather, prolonging the longevity of your outdoor furniture by preventing exposure to direct sun, snow and rainfall that can cause deterioration and discoloration. Awnings can also help prevent the UV rays from damaging your indoor furniture or flooring that may be getting exposure.
