Great Ways to Shade your Deck

Adding a deck to your home is a great way to enhance your home’s curb appeal and increase square footage. One of the elements you should take into consideration with your deck’s design is shade.

Some effective ways that Porch Builders can integrate shading solutions to your deck include: 

Portico Roofs

If your deck doesn’t cover a significant surface area, adding a portico roof is a good way to provide cover and maintain the architectural design of your home. This is a small roof that’s designed to cover the front entrance of your home, but it can be stretched to the sides to cover the deck surface. The portico generally maintains the same design as the house’s primary roof. 

Installing a Pergola

Integrating a pergola with your deck offers a more aesthetic approach, and doesn’t completely block all the sun’s rays from reaching the deck’s surface. This is because the roof is made up of a grid of beams instead of a solid covering. You can enhance the shade provided with vines and other climbing plants along the frame. 

Retractable Roofs

Another great solution for smaller decks is remote-controlled retractable roofs. As the name suggests, this solution features a roof that can be retracted or brought forth according to your particular needs. They’re made from various materials including tarps, wood, and louvers.
