ADDING A FIXED ROOF STRUCTURE TO PROTECT A PATIO
This home is located on Vina Del Mar Island, at the southern tip of St Petersburg, FL. As you can see in the first photo, the house has a nice courtyard with a pool, and the patio space back of the pool deck and nearest the wall has been transformed into a dining area by the owners. The problem was the exposure to the sun and to the wind. The choice of a fixed roof structure was the best option to cover the dining area and protect it from the sun, but the structure had to be anchored very strongly to the existing masonry and carpentry to make it hurricane-proof. You can see in the second photo how we anchored it to the existing carpentry. On its under side, it is also anchored to the wall masonry, and to the deck itself with a column dug and cemented into the ground. This fixed roof structure enables the owners to entertain guests outside all year round. It is much stronger than retractable awnings. If you need advice on any project to expand your outdoor with fixed structure like pergolas and roofs, call us.Read more
SMART LOUVERED PERGOLA IN PALM HARBOR, FL
We finished building this smart louvered pergola in the back of this very nice home in Palm Harbor. The owners have a great view on the golf course, but can’t always enjoy it during the say because of the direct sun exposure. The pergola now houses a wet bar, which expands the entertainment possibilities of their home almost all year round. Located on the wing of the house, it also compliments what would otherwise be just a wall. The black metal structure follows the line of the gutters, blending the pergola seamlessly into the architectural design of the home. If you want to maximize your outdoor living, call us to study your project. We’ll be happy to advise you.Read more
NEW LOUVERED PERGOLA ON THE SEASHORE

This modern pergola has the technology to open, close, pivot, and slide depending on your needs. It is fully lit, extending its use from sunset to late at night. It protects family and guests from the hard sun, and also from a light rain. Its clean aesthetic compliments the typical 1960s Florida seashore home. If you are wondering how to expand your outdoor, or how you could live more of your time outdoors, give us a call. Our technical team will help you create your dream project.Read more
INSTALLATION OF RETRACTABLE SCREENS ON DAVIS ISLAND, FL
We just completed this project on a site on Davis Island, FL. The owners have a patio open on 2 sides, with a very enjoyable view. However, this patio is exposed to wind and rain, as well as harsh sun during summer. This limits the numbers of days the family can actually enjoy some R&R with their guests. So they decided to install Vyzioné motorized retractable screens to use that space in all seasons. If you are in a similar situation and want to enjoy outdoor living all year round, call us with your ideas and we’ll discuss how to make them into reality!Read more
MOTORIZED RETRACTABLE SCREENS
We did this short video to show some of the details of the installation of motorized retractable screens in this residence in Davis Island, FL. You can see how the support brackets and the cassette were mounted on the masonry with minimal intrusion in the walls and the roof soffit. The retractable screens shield the patio from wind and rain, and protect the homeowners from harsh sun during the summer. It’s a way for homeowners to regain more of their outdoor living space all year round. If you want to live outdoor more of your life, call us. We have custom solutions for all home configurations.Read more
PERGOLA WITH MOTORIZED LOUVERS
This is a great addition to a porch that would otherwise be mostly unusable during the year due to sun exposure. Anchored to the wall masonry, this permanent structure covers the porch edge to edge, and provide a really welcomed shade during our hot season. The louvers can be closed or open depending on sun and rain, and offer just the right amount of sunlight or weather protection all throughout the year. If you want to enjoy your outdoor space even more all year-round, just give us a call to discuss your project. If you are interested in what we offer, we will send an estimator to give you a quote. We cover the whole of Tampa Bay, and all the way to Orlando, from the Gulf to the ocean.Read more
HURRICANE SCREENS PROTECT PATIO
WIMAUMA, FL — We just finished installing these hurricane screens around a covered patio in Wimauma, FL. This home faces a wide open space and the owners wanted protection from wind and rain without having to enclose their patio with a hard structure. With their tough, weatherproof synthetic canvas, hurricane screens achieve the double objective of shielding the family from the elements when monsoon season is upon Florida, and doing it at a much more reasonable cost than a traditional enclosure with steel and glass panels. Hurricane screens offer the family the flexibility to continue enjoying their outdoor from their covered patio. They are fully motorized and are very solidly anchored to the superstructure of the home. If you have any project in mind, because you want to enjoy your outdoor more often and longer in the year, call us to advise you on your project and to give you an estimate.Read more
NEW PERGOLA FOR HIATUS HOTEL ON CLEARWATER BEACH
Large pergola project for an open air covered patio at the Hiatus Hotel on Clearwater Beach. Look at the photos to see how our project is progressing. You can see the structure and the motorized louvers that will open and close the structure to protect the hotel guests. This structure enable the hotel to utilize open air space that could not be used 24/7 before when it was raining. Increasing the capacity of the hotel entertainment areas directly improves the bottom line. If you have an unprotected open air area that you are thinking of utilizing without concern for the weather, call our engineers to discuss your ideas. We will help you study the feasibility of the project.Read more

If you also need to live more of your life outdoor, call us to design a protected space like this one.Read more
RETRACTABLE SCREENS IN WESLEY CHAPEL
Take a look at the photos. The wide openings of this home in Wesley Chapel now have retractable screens that protect the balcony (upper floor) and the patio (ground floor). The screens are fully motorized independently from each other. Our installation enables homeowners to enjoy their outdoor area without the typical inconveniences of a house situated on a golf course: wide exposure to winds and rains, and mosquitoes during springtime and summer. Before we installed the retractable screens on the balcony, they could not enjoy it at all because of the unceasing mosquito attacks and the exposure to high winds due to the wide-open space in front of their home. Retractable screens are made in weather-resistant and sun-resistant material. The electric motors makes lowering and raising the screens effortless. If you can’t enjoy your outdoor living as much as you would like because of winds, rains, and mosquitoes, call Lyfe Outdoor Comfort Solutions to help you design a solution perfectly adapted to your home. We service the whole Tampa Bay area, as well as Orlando, Sarasota, Bradenton, and the localities north or New Port Richey.Read more

EXPAND YOUR OUTDOOR LIVING SPACE
We built this louvered pergola on the side of our clients’ home in Clearwater, FL. They wanted to have more livable outdoor space to entertain their guests. The louvered pergola gives them the flexibility to enjoy their yard even when the sun is harsh, as the louvers can be completely closed, and reopened towards the end of the day. The louvers also protects them from a light rain as we often have during the monsoon season in FL. Louvers are easy to clean, and the structure ensure rainwater is evacuated to the existing gutters. The pergola structural beams are deeply anchored in the concrete and under the roof line, to resist very strong winds as per code.

RETRACTABLE SCREENS IN ACTION IN A POOL CAGE
Take a look at this short video showing motorized retractable screens lowered and raised to protect a pool patio from harsh sun and monsoons. This system is mounted on track permanently affixed to the structural elements of the patio. The synthetic textile used for the screen is extremely solid and mold-resistant. It can be washed easily too. Protect your patio furniture, enjoy more time by the pool with your family and guests. Call us for an estimate.Read more
RETRACTABLE SCREENS ON A COMMERCIAL BUILDING
This is Ford’s Garage Wesley Chapel, FL, a great restaurant with a menu full of options: salads, shrimps, burgers, nachos, chicken, pork, etc. We installed retractable screens, fully motorized alongside their dining patio. This installation encloses the patio and protects the patrons from the sun and from sudden showers. For the restaurant these retractable screens make a lot of financial sense as their patio can now be used all the time during daytime and evenings, increasing the number of diners served each day. For their patrons, the retractable screens also make sense as their installation gives them a sense of comfort and safety. If you have any space that would boost your revenues if it was enclosed with screens, give us a call to study your project.Read more
CLOSING POOL PATIO WITH RETRACTABLE SCREENS
In this example of our work, you can see retractable screens in the back of the pool cage. These screens are motorized and can be raised and lowered at the flick of a switch. The house is located in Plant City, FL. Our client wanted to shield the patio in the back of the pool cage for a couple of reasons: 1- When it rained, the pool cage would only limit the volume of rain coming into the patio area, not eliminate it completely. After each monsoon, their patio furniture was wet. And during a shower, their family could not stay outside without getting rained on. 2- During summer, the sun would directly fall on the patio during the day, making it too warm to stay outside and enjoy the pool cage. Our clients didn’t like the UV exposure either. These retractable progressive screens are a great solution to address both concerns, as they stop the rain, filter the sunlight, and provide a cooler area during the day. Also, during the winter season, the screens provide a degree of protection against the cold wind. This family can now enjoy their pool cage at any time during the day, any season of the year. If you live in Plant City or anywhere else in Central and South Florida, and you want a permanent solution to live more outside of your walls, call us to study and design a solution for you.Read more
WATERPROOFING OF TOP OF PERGOLA STRUCTURE
hese photos show the permanent cover plates affixed on the pergola structure we installed for Lime Fresh Mexican restaurant in Orlando, FL. These cover plates are located at the center of the structure. They are waterproofed to ensure no rain falls on patrons in the sitting patio. the waterproofing also prevents debris (leaves, dust) to settle between the plates. The weather resistance of the whole structure is improved. That pergola adds money-generating sitting space to the restaurants sharing the covered patio. The pergola structure can be seen at LimeFresh on Narcoossee Rd in Orlando. If you want to build a pergola or any kinds of shading structure to extend the livable outdoor space in your backyard, call us! We will help you design and engineer the structure for year-long use.Read more
LARGE PERGOLA STRUCTURE EXTENDS MONEY-PRODUCING SPACE
We just delivered this large pergola structure with retractable awnings on both sides and a fixed section in the middle. The awnings are motorized and can be extended or retracted to offer maximal or minimal weather exposure to patrons. The center part is permanently covered by fixed ceiling plates and offer year-round sun and rain protection. We mounted a lighting system to make sure the restaurant’s new patio operates day and night all year round. This structure provides both restaurants with additional revenues as the serving space has been expanded and is in fact, a year-round sitting patio. This unique structure was commissioned by the Lime Fresh restaurant and the burger restaurant on the other side. It is solidly anchored in the walls of both buildings. It can be viewed on Narcoossee Rd, in Orlando, FL where our company has built a large number of residential and commercial projects. Lyfe Outdoor Comfort Solutions designed and engineering the pergola structure. We installed it on location in record time. If you have any project to expand your restaurant or store outdoor on a patio, a backyard or a parking lot, give us a call to help you with the engineering and the installation.Read more
MOTORIZED RETRACTABLE SCREENS CREATE A BETTER EXPERIENCE FOR BAR CLIENTS
The bar at the JW Marriott hotel in Clearwater, FL has a million-dollar view on the shore. But the window structures were not equipped with screens. That bothered patrons in the afternoon when the sun passes its zenith. We installed these motorized progressive Magnatrack retractable screens all along the window wall, providing patrons the comfort they seek during the day and making the bar all the more welcoming. Each screen is individually controlled, so the overall sun exposure of the bar can be controlled by the hotel at any time during the day. These motorized retractable screens are also energy savers: sun rays are blocked at their harshest, reducing the need for air conditioning during the day. Call us to consult us for any patio shading project you have. We will help with the design to develop a custom-engineered shading structure for your home or your business.Read more
PATIO LOUVERED PERGOLA
We installed this louvered pergola directly into the pool cage to extend the patio space available to the family and their guests. The louvered structure lets in the sun when it is sunny, and closes when it is rainy, protecting the sitting area. The pool cage could not protect the area, so the residents could not use their available outdoor space. Our louvered structure integrates an LED lighting system, and the framing matches perfectly that of the pool cage. If you have any patio improvement project, request a consultation with our specialists. We will be glad to help you design and build it for you.Read more
Two of the options offered to home owners when we install a louvered pergola structure are fans (with lights) and heating elements. Louvered pergola structures enable people to enjoy more their outdoor: louvers protect them from monsoons and harsh sunrays. Fans add to this comfort by providing air movement when the heat becomes unbearable. In winter (even if Floridian winter is limited to January and February), heating elements make dining “al fresco” really enjoyable. These louvered pergolas are really helpful all year round when you want to live more outdoors, and not be confirmed to your home. And the mosquito control services and mosquito misting systems we offer will help complete the picture: live life outdoor, no limit. Lyfe Outdoor Comfort Solutions proposes a full solution to the problems so typical to Florida: with full mosquito control services, mosquito misting systems, and fixed patio structures like louvered pergolas, we make it possible to homeowners to get rid of mosquitos and reclaim control of their backyard and property. if you want to live more outside and less inside, call us!Read more
LOUVERED PERGOLA SYSTEM IN THE TAMPA AREA
One of the specialties of Lyfe Outdoor Comfort, smart pergola systems enable homeowners to enjoy their patios for longer periods during the Florida summer. Here in this photo, we can see a louvered pergola we installed recently in the Tampa area. The owners selected the louvered system because a regular pergo does not allow the patio to be protected from harsh sun and rain. The louvers can fully close the top of the pergola, and let any rain run to the gutters. During hot days, closing the louvers either fully or partially will also prevent vertical sunrays to directly hit the patio, enabling homeowners to enjoy lunch outside without being roasted. Lyfe Outdoor Comfort Solutions designs and installs smart pergolas and other shading structures all over Florida, including Tampa, Orlando, Miami, Palm Beach, Bradenton, Sarasota, St Pete, Ft Lauderdale, etc. Call us for an estimate and to check our portfolio of shading structures.Read more
SMART PERGOLAS PROTECT BETTER FROM SUN & RAIN
We just finished building this smart pergola structure. It features pivoting louvers that can be opened or closed, either to let the sun in or to protect from it. In the closed position, the louvers also protect from the rain. This is an elegant solution to extend the time you can spend outdoors with your family and guests. Note the presence of super-gutters on each side of the structure: they help channeling rainwater coming down the roof to the side and into the ground, rather than letting it flow over the louvers. Not only is it better for the louver mechanism, but it also avoid water, dirt, dust and leaves staying on top of the louvers with the risk of mildew growth and difficult clean-ups. Call us for more information.Read more
Vizioné Motorized Retractable Screen
We just installed this motorized retractable screen around this overhang to provide a shaded enclosed area to the owner and their guests. Learn more about our retractable screens.
MOTORIZED RETRACTABLE SCREEN BEHIND GARAGE DOOR
An uncommon, but very practical installation. The homeowner wanted to be able to work in his garage without exposure to mosquitoes or rain. He also wanted to keep the temperature down during summer. The motorized retractable screen checks all these boxes, and brings him a degree of privacy too. Sometimes, you just don’t want to inform the whole neighborhood of what you do in your garage. Also, in an age where tool theft has become a plague, preventing thieves from seeing what’s inside your garage when they casually go around a community “to case the joint”, is an effective deterrent. Thieves go for the easy target. The screen hides what’s inside, and it also tells them “this will be harder to go in”. Installed behind the garage door, it does not prevent lifting and lowering the door. If you think that’s a great idea for your home, please give us a call to get a quick estimate.Read more
BUILDING A COMMERCIAL PATIO COVER STRUCTURE
We are almost done with the building of this patio cover structure set up between the 2 buildings of Lime Fresh Mexican Grill and BurgerFi on Narcoossee Rd, in South Orlando, near Lake Nona and Lake Hart. This structure will provide guests of both restaurant with much needed shade this summer, and will also protect them against the coming monsoons. Our brand Vizioné has a deep know-how in building this type of structures, both in commercial and residential settings. If you need sun and rain protection all year round, these are the way to go. Call us to discuss any project you may have or check out our website.Read more
