Deck/ Window Sunshade
« on: February 21, 2017, 11:07:42 AM »
So i'm thinking of making a sunshade for my deck. 

I was thinking of using PVC for the structure 1.5" and then putting a Tarp or something else over it.  I would remove the sturcture and tarp in the winter to allow sun to warm the house.

This would serve 2 purposes.

1. make the deck cooler in the summer
2. block sunlight from warming the house. 

Has anyone done anything like this?

so that is likely what i will do ... now the trick will be attaching poles to my deck to support the corners of the shade.  house side is obviously easy.  just a ring hook ....

upper windows i'll get some shades made that are permanent for the summer as those blinds never get opened.
