Has anybody used one? I saw an ad in a magazine for them- they have the new sunproof (?) fabric. A client has a raised brick patio, and it's really too hot in the summer - it faces south. There is a tree coming along, but the patio is at second story height, so it's going to be a while yet. I was thinking a retractable awning would be good for the summer, and then pull it back in the winter for sun and heat. Maybe they could get a ceiling fan to go on the pergola structure.
Any opinions out there?
