Summers in Texas can be brutal and taking measures to beat the heat and avoid too much sun exposure are a must. At ABC Blind & Drapery, it’s our goal to help our customers reduce the impact of sun and heat on not only themselves but their home as well – which is why we offer products from The Corradi Group. They design and create custom-made solutions for the year-round enjoyment of outdoor spaces. We recommend these outdoor shade essentials for backyard entertainment this summer!


The pergotenda is a wonderful outdoor shade because of its versatility. Rain or shine, a Corradi pergotenda provides the shade and protection you need to enjoy your outdoor space year-round. Models are available in various aluminum and wood designs and can be partially or fully extended, allowing you the ability to create the look you’ve always wanted with a fully customizable process.

retractable awnings

Retractable awnings are an elegant and practical way to protect your home from the sun’s harmful rays. With several retractable sail awnings options, you can easily add instant shade to already existing structures with the easy-to-mount application.

Awnings come with a traditional hand-crank operation or can be motorized for ease-of-operation. Wind and sun sensors can also be added to motorized awnings to protect your investment even when you aren’t home.

Outdoor shade essentials can be customized to fit your unique style and needs. To make the decision process easier, our ABC Blind & Drapery showroom gives customers the opportunity to see Corradi products in action. All of our in-home and showroom consultations offer guidance from a designer who can help you consider the possibilities of a custom outdoor space. Schedule a visit with us today!
