Photos Shade


Hot, sunny days are great (and what we in the Des Moines and Central Iowa areas yearn for during the winter), but sometimes…too much of a good thing is too much. For those times or for those sensitive to the damaging effect of the sun’s UV rays, our pergolas, trellises and roof structures provide shady relief.

  • Pergolas don’t generally provide full shade, but they do block some sun and cut down on the heat
  • Roofed structures include our open (covered) porch and screen porch spaces done over either decks or patios; roofs provide full shade and the added benefit of protection from rain

Overhead awning systems can also be incorporated into pergola structures to maximize shade. For low-sun situations, shade panels can be incorporated into both pergola and porch beams.
