Spring is just around the corner and in a few weeks’ time flowers will bloom, plants will grow, and the dreaded cold will start fading away. It’s also a time when everyone is eager to bring out their patio furniture and sit under the sun in their pergola’s, decks and yards. It’s a time of relaxation and fun, a time of gathering with family and friends and also the start of the barbecue season. Now the only problem with this entire scenario is that, sitting directly under the sun in our pergola’s, gazebo’s and deck’s is that after one point the sun will start getting warmer, brighter and just an annoyance in general. What can be done about this you say? The answer is simple; Outdoor Blinds. Adding motorized outdoor shades to any patio, pergola or gazebo provides you with protection from harmful UV rays, control over the amount of light that’s let in and lets you enjoy your backyard in peace. Crown and Graber, currently offer one of the leading Exterior Solar Blinds in the market and provides a wide variety of fabrics ranging from blackout (prevents all light form coming through) to 15% opening (which lets in up to 15% of the light and also lets you see through the shade).
