For long canopies, multiple hook and base pairs can attach anywhere along its length allowing connection to multiple cables regardless of their location. The profile holds the panels securely and can withstand strong winds yet allowing the panels to install and be replaced within minutes.
These canopies use individual fabric panels that can be easily interchanged within minutes with panels of different color and fabric to create an infinite number of beautiful and unique designs to meet any taste, mood and design need. Canopies can be configured in one or multiple colors and modified even after installation to create new designs for any taste, style and need.

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

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
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
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
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.

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
