Vin de Set Rooftop patio shade sails

"We are more than pleased with the product and service provided by Shade-Guard. The attention to detail went above and beyond our expectations. The sails not only provide the shade we requested, they are an attractive architectural feature that has created a lot of buzz with our guests."

Residential Shade Sails

"Shade-Guard Did It! We wanted two large sails for our residential patio, both the bar and dining area. Johan worked with us on planning and designing a structure that looked exactly as we had envisioned it. During the planning and bidding process, I spoke with other “recommended” companies that said that they could/would not be able to design and fabricate a residential shade that I described. Large residential sails are not yet popular in our area, but Johan’s extensive knowledge and years of experience in this field were obvious in his designs and quality workmanship. Shade-Guard surpassed our expectations by working under a restrictive timeframe in order to get it installed before a large gathering we were having. I recommend Shade-Guard to everyone who asks about our sails, and believe me, everyone who sees them asks about the designer! Thanks again Johan!"

Residential Shade Canopy

"The sun is brutal in my back yard during the summer.   I wanted shade on my patio without a loss of natural light in my breakfast room and kitchen.  A patio umbrella provided only a little shade, and  I thought a patio cover was not only too expensive, but it would also reduce the light in my house.  After some research, I found Shade-Guard. They were great to work with from the initial design through installation of the sail.  My patio is now much cooler allowing me to enjoy it with my morning coffee  and entertain on it during the weekend.  Neighbors and friends comment how attractive the sail is compared to other ways of shading a patio. I highly recommend Shade-Guard and their product."

Commercial Awning

"We had a great experience working with Shade-Guard for our awning. They did an outstanding job designing and installing a custom awning that is attractive and functional. The entire process from our first phone call to final installation was professional and stress free. We highly recommend Shade-Guard!"

"Thank you for the excellent job on the shade sails for our deck. We appreciate your attention to details and your willingness to explain everything that went into the design and construction. Throughout the entire process we were both impressed with your commitment to good communication and willingness to work with us to achieve our desired goals."

Commercial Frame Shade Canopy

"Shade-Guard went above and beyond to get our new shade cloths ordered, prepared, shipped, and installed, including two site visits by the owner. In addition, he sanded and painted existing frames which were not part of the job specification, simply to insure an attractive structure. Shade-Guard was wonderful to communicate with, insuring timely responses before and after job completion. I highly recommend Shade-Guard, and on behalf of the United States Air Force and the children of Little Rock AFB, we thank them very much."

     Ryan M. Haselhuhn, SSgt.                          USAF Contracting Specialist

"I had an exceptional experience working with Johan and Shade-Guard to have sails installed on our restaurant garden patio. The planning process was seamless, the install was on our target date, and the follow-up breakdown for our off-season, and reinstall this spring went perfectly. Strongly recommend!"

     Brad Beracha, Baiku Sushi Lounge


"Shade-Guard did an amazing job installing two sun shades at our local elementary school. Excellent communication throughout the entire process. They were able to work within our PTA budget and delivered an amazing product, detailed installation, and excellent customer service. Highly recommend them for your next school, business, or home project!"

   Kimberly Trennepohl

" Johan is one of the most positive and committed people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He worked hard, communicated very well, and is a man of his word. As for the project, in my experience the awning has saved my company and the integrity of our product on hundreds of occasions since 2016. Our awning is by far the most important part of protecting our customers, our products, and allows us to build our business while protecting our brand. Words cannot express how grateful my crew and myself are in the results of Johan's product. We now have a very safe storage area and better Crew experience which has positively influenced our customer's experience directly. This product exceeded our expectations,

and we could not be more pleased."

"I really don’t know where to begin. From the beginning bid process until project completion, Jerre and Johan of Shade-Guard provided the utmost in customer service and quality workmanship. They consistently went out of their way to keep us informed during the stages of Solar Shade's structure manufacturing and material processing. 
  This company provides the 'best bang for the buck' without sacrificing the ultimate in quality. True professionals in every sense of the word."
