Get Ready For The Heat! How To Turn Your Home Into A Summer Oasis

When the heat comes in full force, there’s nothing you can do but embrace it. Here are a few ways you can turn your home into an oasis that makes you forget just how hot it is outside.

REFRESH YOUR BACKYARD

Whether that means fresh, new grass, a summer vegetable garden, string lights, or fresh tile in and around the pool. These are some of the few ways to make your home feel like an oasis. Summers are best spent in and around the pool and the barbeque, so think about making your patio more comfortable. This could be a new grill, new cushions for your patio set, an awning, or patio shades.

PROVIDE A SPACE WITH SHADE

An awning is a great choice to keep your patio cool as it provides shade, but it can also be retractable if you feel like basking in the summer sun for a while. All Pro Shade Concepts even has retractable awnings that can be controlled by your smartphone! If you’re looking for more shade than an awning can provide, look to patio shades. Patio shades hold many of the same benefits as an awning, but encloses a patio to further block the sun and can be utilized to block out other weather elements in other seasons.

Should I Get Zipper-Sealed Patio Shades for My Arizona Home?

Are Zipper-Sealed Roll-down patio shades right for my Arizona home?

Bugs, wind, and heat. The one thing they all have in common is that they all exist outside. That doesn’t mean you have to stay indoors in an effort to avoid it all. With summer approaching, the kids will be out of school, there will be barbecues with family, and you’ll want to entertain as many friends as you can.

Benefits

Keep Out Debris & Critters

Did you know that there are special patio shades can actually keep an area enclosed from bugs, wind, and keep the area cooler? A patio shade that is zipper sealed allows you to seal off your patio from intruding creatures or inclement weather thanks to a strong zipper that is secured into the tracks installed to your patio's opening. Because of the tight seal it creates, you won’t have to worry about covering the hot dogs for fear that those pesky flies will be all over it the second you set  it down.

Keep Your View

One of the best features of a patio shade is that even though it protects you and your guests from the hot sun, you still get the view of the rest of your yard. If you have a pool, you can safely watch your kids swim while sitting comfortably in the shade.

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!

All Weather

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.

AWNINGS

5 Things To Consider When Replacing Your Awning Fabric

Everyone loves to hang out when the weather is nice. But nowadays we should always keep ourselves protected from too much heat, and UV rays. For outdoor lovers, we often look for options on staying outside without worrying about sun exposure. Thanks to the invention of awnings, we can enjoy the summer sunshine without the concern of protecting our skin.

 

If you have awnings installed at home or at your business establishment, Here’s 5 things to consider when replacing your awning fabric:

 

  • Worn Out   

Let’s face it. Fabric can’t last a lifetime, so they tear or fray with time. Sometimes damage is caused by extreme exposure to the sun causing the fabrics to fade or even break.  It can cost a lot of money if you replace the whole awning, All Pro Shade Concepts can help. We offer a wide selection of awning fabrics to bring your awning back to life.   

 

  • Fire Resistant

We should always consider awning fabrics that are fire resistant. There has been an increase of importance in fire prevention even in public spaces. You might want to check your awning fabric specifications to see if it meets the standards. Look for a fabric types that not only keep you safe, but is also energy efficient.

 

  • Ultraviolet Rays Resistant

We think of awnings as effective sun shading. But are they really efficient? Go back and check the current fabric used in your awning. Fabrics really vary in their ability to absorb or even block ultraviolet radiation. All Pro Shade Concepts offers a variety of awning fabrics to best protect your family.

 

  • Durability

Often, people worry solely on budget when purchasing products or services. They miss the mark on the importance of good quality and proper installation. For awning fabrics, you want to use fabric that will last, especially in the Arizona Heat. Look for fabric that can endure extreme heat, is waterproof, and resistant to mold and mildew.

 

  • Attractiveness

This is important for business establishments, but also at home. Awnings bring appeal and can make or break the look of a building. Frayed or damaged awnings can make a home or business look dingy and unattractive. Look for a fabric that matches your home or business motif, adds to the style, but also resists fading.
