3 Unique Ways to Add Shade to Your Patio

Shades and other structures help protect you and your outdoor spaces from the heat. They also make a fascinating addition to your property thanks to their distinct design that helps enhance your home’s curb appeal. Each type offers a certain amount of shading and comfort that will suit your lifestyle.

ArmorGuard Exteriors, the premier source of quality exterior solar shades, can help you choose the right shading solution for your home. Some of them include:

Solid Patio Covers

Solid patio covers offer complete protection against extreme weather conditions, allowing you to enjoy the best outdoor experience. They are usually attached to your house’s structure, which can cost less than freestanding structures. Alternatively, if you like daylight along with the shade, consider combining the solid cover with an open lattice for a vibrant feel you can enjoy.


Pergolas can be used as a cover for your walkways, patios, or decks. They not only offer some respite from daylight heat but also a beautiful view of the sky at night. It features a slatted roof that allows you to incorporate various lighting fixtures for a classic, soothing feel for your outdoor space. You can also use this as support for your growing vines and other plants, making the most of your garden space. Consider investing in our quality retractable screens for your interior for added shade on hot days.


Compared to traditional pergolas, a lattice has slimmer and simpler-shaped pieces. It can block heat and still brighten up your outdoor space. If your home has a modern architectural style, the sleek lines of a lattice can define its visual appeal.
