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.

The Future is Home Shade Automation

A little over a decade ago, home automation was but a dream to many homeowners. Today, we’re living the future we imagined: We have smartphones, smart TVs, and even smart refrigerators. Why should shades and awnings be any different? Switching from manual to automated shades can make your life easier in many ways. Here are a few reasons to switch!


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).

Convenience


Imagine taking the time to walk around your house to roll all window and patio shades down. Home shade automation is designed to make things easier for you. Motorized awnings and roll shades can be controlled remotely via your smartphone. You can also schedule when your awnings and patio shades will open.

All Pro Shade Concepts offers MyLink by Somfy so you can control your motorized patio shades and awnings with ease.  Now you can use your time & energy for things that really matter.

Energy Efficient


Cooling your home consumes a lot of power, especially if you live in Phoenix, one of the hottest cities in the US. Automated shades can help you regulate your power consumption by ensuring comfort when you need it most. Sun sensors can detect when your patio shades should be rolled down to keep your home cool, especially beneficial in the summer.

Peace of Mind


Worried about leaving your patio shades and awnings exposed to the elements? With home shade automation, you never have to leave your shades at the mercy of nature. Motorized shades come with the options of wind sensors that can detect weather that could cause costly damage. For example, wind sensors can protect your awnings by automatically retracting them during harsh winds during Arizona's monsoon storms.

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!

Family Friendly Design


The main problem with manual roll down shades are the mechanisms required to roll them up or down. The cords or chains used in this mechanism can be dangerous for young children and even pets. Home shade automation completely eliminates this problem, giving you the peace of mind you deserve.

Thinking Of Selling Your Home? Upgrades That Can Attract Buyers

Are you ready to sell your home in hopes of finding your dream home? Maybe you’re relocating for work or family. Either way, if you’re considering selling your current home, there are some upgrades you should consider making in order to attract the most buyers. Here are some tips -

Update Flooring


If your carpet/tile/hardwood is looking a bit dirty and run down, you should definitely consider updating it. Hardwood is always a classic, nowadays tile should be kept strictly to bathrooms and kitchens to avoid a dated look, and it’s best to keep carpet colors on the neutral side.

If hardwood flooring is the look you’re going for but you don’t want to spend a lot of money, you can look for laminate flooring that looks like wood. This will keep costs down, but still attract buyers to the more modern look.

 

Tip: buyers will like the look of consistent flooring throughout. So don’t go out and pick a bunch of different types and/or colors of flooring.

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).

Tip: Try to keep the colors you choose light, bright, and neutral - especially if there is not a lot of natural light filtering in these rooms.

Kitchen/Bathroom Renovation


If your budget allows it, consider a kitchen and/or bathroom renovation. Doing one or both of these could significantly increase the value of your home and the willingness of buyers to take a look at your home. It could be as simple as changing the backsplash in your kitchen or repainting old cabinets and installing new hardware on it. If you’re looking for more value to be added, replacing your countertops will help as well.

Landscaping


Curb appeal. If you haven’t heard that term yet, get used to hearing it. This is the first thing buyers will see and consider. If the outside of your home is not appealing, chances are they won’t even bother stepping inside. To avoid this, try updating your landscape. Make sure there are no dead weeds or plants.

Ensure there is not clutter from toys or old furniture. If you’re able to, try having your home repainted. A fresh coat of paint can go a long way in addition to updated roofing. 

 

Tip: Think about updating your front door as well - especially if it’s looking old and paint is chipping.

Your goal here is to make someone drive by and want to stop just by looking at the outside of your home.

 

 

Tip: If you are installing sun screens in your windows, be sure to consult a professional. This is one project you should not try to DIY. All Pro Shade Concepts are experts at installations and even customize them to your liking. The company even participates in the SRP Shade Screen Rebate Program, which could end up saving you money if their sun screens are installed into your home!

Update Windows


If your home was constructed pre 1970 and hasn’t been updated since, the windows are probably not the best for several reasons. If your home is so old that it doesn’t have a good central air system, home buyers will already be hesitant. By replacing or updating your windows, this could help insulate the home further, allow for a window A/C unit to be installed, and give the home a more modern look. You could also consider installing sun screens in the windows to further insulate the home.

Doing this could keep more heat from coming into the home and give it another uniform look from the outside (hint: curb appeal!). They will also allow you more privacy from the outside, while still being able to see the view from the inside.

Tip: If you haven’t looked at it in over a year and it is not any kind of important document, you probably will never look at or need it again. It’s time to say goodbye to it.

Declutter


This one isn’t so much an upgrade as it is a must do. If you were to walk into a home with a lot of items strewn everywhere, you probably wouldn’t want to stay long either. So why expect homebuyers to? Make sure you declutter your home prior to any open houses (and before photos are taken as well!) to prevent potential homebuyers missing the little details you love and worked so hard to update. You could have the most beautiful living room, but if your kids have taken it over as a playroom, it won’t feel inviting to someone looking to buy.

Does Your AZ Home Need Updating?

You purchased your home 5, 10+ years ago. Back then, it may have been fully updated and turn-key, or maybe you bought a fixer upper and never got around to finishing it. If you can feel your home’s age, it may be time to do some updating. You can update it from the inside, or from the outside - it all depends on how much time you have. Whatever you choose, you will improve your living surroundings, and are now increasing your home’s equity.

Update the Inside

With all that's available: online shopping, purchasing new furnishings is as easy as a tapping a few buttons on your phone. Update your overworn couch, purchase new chinaware, or find a great entryway table.

Try finding unique pieces at garage sales or consignment stores and repainting them to match your homes style. If you have more time, look into painting rooms, replacing old flooring, or renovating the bathrooms and kitchen.

While you beautify the interior of your home, you'll want to protect it, too. If you want to customize the visibility of the inside of your home, look into having window sun screens installed to all the windows in your home. This will give you the security and privacy you’re looking for, being able to see out of your windows, but bystanders wont be able to see in.

Update Your Exterior

When you update the outside of your home, you instantly improve its curbside appeal. In your front yard you could update your landscaping with new plants, a fountain, or pavement. Replacing your old garage door will make your life easier if it hasn’t been working properly in addition to giving your home a uniform look.

Custom window sun screens can completely change the look of your Arizona Home's exterior. Replace old, faded, or torn window sun screens to give your home an elegant, and more sophisticated look.

A Backyard Dream

If you’re more into updating your backyard, look at updating your pool with a waterfall or new tiles, upgrade your patio furniture with newly upholstered cushions & umbrellas, or purchase a new grill for all the summertime parties you can host in your updated backyard.

Get ready to party!

To prevent damage to your new furniture and grill, you can also install awnings or patio shades. Awnings attach directly to your home and are retractable so you can choose whether or not you want to use it. Patio shades are a great option if you want to be able to shade your patio like an awning, but want more coverage and versatility. With patio shades you can protect your patio from different kind of weather including rain! In addition, it shields it from unwanted insects and from blocks most of the sun’s harmful rays.

Is Your Home Energy Efficient?

Is it too cold in the winter and too warm in the summer? Do you feel like your wallet is emptying quicker than usual? If you answered yes to either, maybe the real question you should be asking yourself if whether or not your home is energy efficient.

Here are a few things to take into consideration when trying to find out if your home is energy efficient.

The Age of Your Appliances

Your hand-me-down washer and dryer units are all probably wonderful appliances, but if they are not energy star certified, it’s time to upgrade. You may be spending money upfront, but according to Direct Energy, over just a 5 year span you can save over $300 on your electric bill just by switching to more energy efficient appliances.

 

Gaps Between Your Windows

Can you feel air coming through the cracks of your windows? If so, there’s a good chance that you’re turning up the heat or air because of these uncontrolled air leaks. By simply sealing these spots, Energy.gov says you can save around 10-20% on annual heating and cooling bills.

Start a Compost Pile

Reducing the amount of trash you produce daily by starting a compost pile in your backyard not only helps the environment, it can be used to fertilize your garden, where you can grow your very own organic fruits and vegetables.

Use Less Water

According the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), homeowners can save about $170 a year on average benefiting from changes to their water usage. Being conscious of running water while doing daily task like shaving or brushing your teeth can be helpful. Also, bathing typically uses 75 gallons of water compared to a shower that uses about 17.2 gallons on average.

Sun Filters Through Your Windows Most Of The Day

Even with sealing the unwanted air coming through gaps in your home, it could still heat up from the sun’s rays coming through the windows. Consider solar blocking drapery or installing sun screens in this case. When you install sun screens in your home, not only do you make your home more energy efficient, but you also get privacy and security from any wandering eyes outside, without the need of bulky fabric.

All Pro Shade Concepts specialize in creating custom sun screens. All Pro Shade Concepts even makes their screens by hand, so you know you’re getting a quality product. These sun screens can block 80-90% of the sun’s rays. Now your home is cooler, more secure, and there are less of the sun’s damaging rays making its way into your home.

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

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.

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.

Is the sun keeping your patio use limited? Or, want to have a more functional outdoor living space but don’t know where to start? Here are three practical ways to put your desert patio into good use all year-round and even years!

1. Take control with retractable awnings.

A patio cover is worth your New Year’s upgrade. If you are considering quick to install and more flexible option, a retractable awning is perfect for you! A retractable awning gets you the benefit of extending a shade when the desert sun is up shining or soak up the beautiful desert scene at dusk with more open feel by simply retracting it. Rain or shine, you can bring any activity outdoor without worrying being drenched or burned up. Plus, it is a stylish way to limit your neighbors view of your patio and let you be in control of your privacy.

2. Patio drop shades for a comfortable desert patio.

A patio drop shade is a cost-effective investment to beat the year-round Arizona heat. You’ll thank yourself later as the sunshine can get intense in the Valley during summer. Put up as much shade as early as now. Patio drop shades keep the sunlight out and minimize the heat that gets through your recreational or relaxation spot.
