The smell and feel of fresh spring air. It’s something we look forward to every year. We also look forward to the blooming of flowers, birds chirping, and everything outdoors. We’re excited to get out there and we’re sure you are too. 

Spring weather can be unpredictable. One day it can be nice and warm and the next, cool and rainy. To keep you covered, or uncovered, we have some trendy shade options that your yard needs. There’s nothing like being in your yard and feeling like you have your own getaway to walk out to.

The Modern Pergola

We are delighted to introduce our Backyard Awning Series. Not only does this awning add shade and beauty to your yard but you can decide whether or not you want us to install it or do it yourself! I know what you’re thinking, why do it myself when someone else can? However, this awning comes without the delivery and installation frustration with prefabricated kits offered by large-box retailers. That means you can actually enjoy working on a project and make your friends think you are a skilled craftsman by the look of it.

Features:

  • Robust aluminum frame. Made from commercial-grade materials that are 100% rust-free and 4-times stronger and more durable than what is available through large-box retailers.
  • The adjustable panels block up to 95% of UV rays without trapping the heat or airflow.
  • DIY or white-glove service with expert and fast installation. 
  • Extremely durable with a UV protective powder coating, for a long-lasting hard finish that is fade, scratch, and chip resistant.
  • Multiple color options are available for the frame and panels.
  • The Premium Series includes 3 Verticool rope-operated drop screens that match the fabric and color of your adjustable panels and lighted posts.
  • Lifetime limited frame warranty and 5-year fabric warranty backed by 80 years of craftsmanship experience and over 200 5-star Google reviews.
  • Made in the USA.

With the option of DIY, you can pick-up your backyard awning today and install it when it is convenient for you. If you would rather have the white glove service, no problem! We are happy to get you scheduled for an installation.

Create an Intimate Space with Style

The new shade options and structures just keep on coming. We are excited to bring you the beautiful Timberpeak Pergola. This is a beautiful Douglas Fir wood pergola that brings style to an intimate space. It can be freestanding or wall-mounted giving you different design options. Check out more features:

  • Three sizes: 12×12, 14×14, 16×16.
  • Made with Douglas Fir.
  • Freestanding or wall mount.
  • Messmers Wood Stain – Multiple finishes.
  • Concrete footings optional.
  • Extra stain for the homeowner.
  • 5-year structural warranty.

Decide If You Want Shade or Sun

With a louvered roof, you can control the amount of sun or rain that comes into your patio or deck. This beautiful patio or deck cover has motorized louvers so you can adjust them to be 100% open, closed, or slanted. You can enjoy your patio year-round whether the sun is shining, it’s raining a little, or snowing a lot. The louvered roof can also withstand 60 lbs. per sq. ft. of snow and 180 mph winds.

Frame features:

  • Sturdy extruded aluminum that will not rust.
  • Louver Roof can be built up to 16 feet.
  • Beautiful, designer crown molding extruded aluminum gutters and screens to keep leaves out.
  • Opens in just 12 seconds.

Springtime = project time and we love project time! There are so many possibilities to turn your backyard into your vacation destination this spring. But before we start planning, let’s take a look at what you can do to prep your space.

Spring Cleaning

  • Clean it up! Grab that power washer and spray off all the gunk that has accumulated over the winter.
  • Scrub off the outdoor furniture and upholstery. You may be able to use the power washer here too but be careful, some furniture and upholstery could damage with the sheer volume of water coming out. 
  • Rake up leaves and twigs from your lawn. You can find other helpful tips in preparing your lawn in this article by Sears Home Services.
  • Weed the flower beds and get planting.
  • Prune your trees.
  • If you have an awning already, don’t forget to schedule a cleaning for it. We can definitely help you out there!

Now that we’ve cleaned everything up, let’s start planning your spring projects.

Whatever you are thinking or dreaming of for your yard this spring, we’re ready to help. Give us a call at 801-563-9600 to get started on your projects.

Winter is a great time to install Verticool drop shades. Not only will they be ready in time for you to beat the summer heat, but you can also start enjoying your outdoor space now! The shades can block wind and other winter elements so you can get some fresh air when the house is too stuffy. SugarHouse offers two different types of drop shades: Verticool Exterior Drop Shades and Verticool Rope-Operated Drop Shades. Let’s take a closer look at each one of them.

Exterior Drop Shades

Privacy Screen 12Our exterior drop shades are available with either an electric motor or a manual that uses a crank that can be removed and stored. Guides on each side of the shade allow it to roll up and down properly and add stability. The guides can either be metal tracks or thin cables.

Here are some top features:

  • Wind sensor
  • Sun sensor
  • Home Automation Integration
  • 10-year limited warranty
  • Available in reliable and well-known fabrics such as Awntex and Textilene
  • Are infused with Microban® technology, an antimicrobial that inhibits the growth of stains and odor-causing bacteria
  • Offer excellent shading advantages without trapping heat or airflow
  • Our vinyl-coated, polyester-fiber mesh fabric stops 85%-95% of UV rays
  • A solution-dyed acrylic material, such as Sunbrella®, is also available. Because it blocks nearly 100% of the sun and visibility, this material is ideal for both shade and privacy.

Rope-Operated Drop Shades

Privacy Screen 17Rope-operated shades simply drop when the rope is released and raise by pulling on the rope. Cleats attached at the side and bottom of the screen secure the screen when it is extended or retracted. If you wish to install these drop shades yourself, they can be ordered as will-call/shipped items in standard or custom sizes.

  • Available in reliable and well-known fabrics such as Awntex and Textilene
  • Mesh-like, open-weave, vinyl-coated, polyester fiber material
  • Protected by 5-year limited warranty
  • Plenty of color options
  • Provides 70-97% sun protection while still see-through
  • Also available in Sunbrella fabrics, providing 100% protection but not see-through
  • Made to order in standard or custom sizes
  • Standard sizes – 48”-168” (4ft.-14ft.)
  • Available for DIY installation

All of our drop shades are customized and we would love to get to work for you. Give us a call at 801-563-9600 to have an expert craftsman work on your shade solution.

Enjoy the Snow Under Your Louvered Roof

We’ve been waiting (not so patiently) for Old Man Winter to show up! There are plenty of people who are itching to hit the slopes, rev up the snowmobile, or have a good old fashioned snowball fight. On the flip side, there are plenty of people who want to spend their social distanced winter at home. If that’s you but the idea of staying huddled under a blanket isn’t appealing to you, don’t worry. Enjoy the snow under your louvered roof!

A louvered roof is perfect to make your patio winter wonderland ready. The really nice thing about a louvered roof is that you can leave it open when it’s not snowing or close it with the push of a button when it is. It can also hold up to 60 lbs. per square foot of snow. 

And there are still ways for you to stay warm and cozy while outside.

Create a Warm Space

It’s no secret that it’s much easier to enjoy the snow when you are comfortable. So in addition to your louvered roof, let’s create a warm space outdoors for you. Here are a few ideas to keep you comfy while getting fresh, crisp winter air. 

  • Patio heaters. These can definitely bring some warmth to your deck or other outdoor space. They come in tons of different shapes and sizes. Check out this article from Business Insider showing the top picks for 2021.
  • Chimeneas or portable fireplace. The crackling of a fire is something that always brings back happy winter memories. This is an affordable way to add a fireplace to your patio.
  • Heated chair. Relax those muscles in a nice heated chair. You’ll feel warm and snug as you watch that snow fall.
  • Pet bed. Now that you have a comfortable place to lounge, put one out for your best friend. They will feel as cozy as you on one of our gel-infused pet beds.
  • Teepee/tent. Watching snow fall can be so relaxing especially when you are warm. Having a teepee or tent set-up will give you a place to sleep or just hang out so you can enjoy the entire night outside.
  • Inflatable movie screen. Okay, as we’ve established, we’re waiting on some snow but until we get it, you can still enjoy your time under your louvered roof. Just rent an inflatable movie screen and voila! You’ve got some outdoor entertainment.

Louvered Roof Features

Here are just a few of the many features a louvered roof offers.

  • Shade Control – by operating the motorized louvers with the remote control, you can fully open or fully close to adjust the shade exactly where you need it.
  • Sun Control – when you want the sun on the patio, coming through your windows or patio doors, you can easily get it by opening the louvers at a slant, to provide up to 85% of the natural light.
  • Ventilation Control – with Louvered Roofs, you get almost 100% ventilation. When the louvers are open, they are parallel to each other.
  • Rain Control – the Louvered Roof has interlocking louvers with a drip edge, so the rain simply runs into the louver troughs, and then out into the full perimeter gutter. It can then run into the post as a downspout or through a regular downspout. It can also be saved into a rain storage device or directed to the lawn or garden. Because of the gutter screens, you will never have to clean out leaves!

We would love to get you set-up with a louvered roof so that you can enjoy your winter when it finally shows up! Give us a call at 801-563-9600 to get going on your customized design!

Make Snow Removal Quick and Easy

December 10, 2020

It’s the beginning of December which means we can’t wait for snow! Snow has a way of making the world seem more beautiful.

It’s the beginning of December which means we can’t wait for snow! Snow has a way of making the world seem more beautiful. The peaceful feeling you get when you see the pristine white flakes falling at night or the sparkle that happens when the sun hits it just right. There’s one thing that some might not look forward to with snow – removal. But for over 30 years, SugarHouse Industries has been making snow removal a little bit easier with Snow Shields.

How Do Snow Shields Work?

Snow Shields remove hundreds of square feet of snow in minutes. Just lay the Snow Shield out before a storm, attach the corners to overhead cranes after the snow has fallen, and lift. If you are using Snow Shields at home, you can easily attach them to a four-wheeler, UTV, etc. to pull the tarp off your driveway. It will make snow removal easier on your back and you’ll have more time to spend with the out of town relatives. Yes, that’s a good thing 😉 

Watch Snow Shields in Action

What Sizes Are Available?

There are two different sizes of Snow Shields available – 20’x20’ and 25’x25’. 

Features:

  • Industrial-grade 18oz. vinyl-coated
  • Heavy-duty construction with double reinforced corners for strong performance
  • Certified 10,000 lbs lift capacity
  • Water repellent, mildew, and tear-resistant
  • 20 ft. x 20 ft. red Snow Shields cover an area of 400 sqft.
  • 25 ft. x 25 ft. red Snow Shields cover an area of 625 sqft.

Straps are attached but we also sell five-foot strap extenders to increase the strap length to just over six-feet. These extenders are removable so you can easily transfer from one tarp to another. 

Storm Preparation

We are confident in our product and know it will save you a lot of time and back-breaking labor. To give you a reminder of when to lay your Snow Shield out, we provide free weather alerts that come straight to your inbox. You can sign-up for these alerts here.

Where Can You Purchase?

You can purchase online at Snowshields.com or you can find a dealer here. Don’t delay your purchase as winter is on its way!

Who says you have to stop working on your outdoor space once the temperature drops? Fall is a great time to get some projects done so when warmer weather returns, you’ll be one step closer to enjoying time outside. Let’s fall into new projects.

SugarHouse has some brand new products that will definitely enhance your space. They will also give you a place to relax and enjoy this beautiful fall weather!

Backyard Awnings

After raking leaves, trimming dead limbs from trees, and planting a fall garden, you’ll want a nice place to relax. Our Backyard 100 & 200 Pergola series lets you relax and enjoy the outdoors. They are affordable and durable plus adds beauty to your yard. These pergolas are used a lot to provide shade and privacy over hot tubs – which is such a nice way to unwind in the fall. They can be mounted on any surface including a wooden deck, concrete slab, or the ground. 

Features:

  • Robust aluminum frame. Made from commercial-grade materials that are 100% rust free and 4-times stronger and more durable than what is available through large-box retailers.
  • The adjustable panels block up to 95% of UV rays without trapping the heat or airflow.
  • White glove service with expert and fast installation. We handle the project details so you can just sit back and enjoy your new outdoor structure.
  • Extremely durable with a UV protective powder coating, for a long-lasting hard finish that is fade, scratch, and chip resistant.
  • Multiple color options are available for the frame and panels.
  • The Premium Series includes 3 Verticool rope-operated drop screens that match the fabric and color of your adjustable panels and lighted posts.
  • Lifetime limited frame warranty and 5-year fabric warranty backed by 80 years of craftsmanship experience and over 200 5-start Google reviews.
  • Made in the USA.

Railings

Fall evenings spent on your deck with a cup of hot cocoa and wrapped in a blanket. Sounds pretty nice. Unless you have an unsightly railing that is ruining your view.

Update your out-of-date or unfashionable railings on your porch or outdoor stairs. Railings provide safety but they can also be quite beautiful. SugarHouse now offers three different types of railings – iron, cable, and glass. 

Our iron railing is a pre-welded, easily customized railing that provides a classic appearance that is versatile for a variety of applications and surfaces. Pre-galvanized steel, zinc phosphate e-coat, and premium powder coating make it the most elegant and durable steel railing system on the market. 

Virtually maintenance-free, our horizontal cable railing panels our unobstructed views of your backyard. No need to tension your system on a regular basis, as is the case with competitor’s products. We also coat our products with a durable multi-layered anti-corrosion coating technology adopted from the high-end automotive industry to ensure enduring beauty. 

Enjoy slick, modern aesthetic coupled with low maintenance. Glass railings allow natural sunlight to radiate in and open outdoor spaces and enhance views. Our simple drop-in solution simplifies the installation process and it’s more cost-effective than custom cut-glass panels.

Gate and Railing Accent Lighting

In addition to our railings, we also offer gates for outdoor stairwells and lighting post caps for your railings. Available in both aluminum and steel to match your railing, our gates convert your outdoor space into a safe area for your family and pets. 

Our energy-efficient LED lighting post caps bring your outdoor space out of the Dark Ages. Easily transform any railing style with our waterproof LED light kit. Backed by a 10-year warranty, its thermal management system offers a power supply option with a timer, dimmer, and photocell.

Our experts are ready to help you with your fall projects. Give us a call at 801-563-9600.

Bring Your Cozy Outdoor Dreams to Life

A crisp fall breeze. Crackling light from the fire pit. Comfy furniture and even comfier clothes. We’ve had our first taste of cooler temperatures and now it’s time to get ready for fall! But what if you’re not ready to say goodbye to spending time outside? Well, you don’t have to. We can bring your cozy outdoor dreams to life with the help of some products from SugarHouse.

Let the Sun In, Keep the Rain Out

One of our favorite products for making your outdoor space a year-round getaway is a louvered roof. This is a unique patio/deck cover that can let sunlight in or be closed to provide shade and weather protection. Bonus, it can handle up to 60 lbs per square foot of snow! 

Here are some features of the louvered roof:

  • Shade Control – by operating the motorized louvers with the remote control, you can fully open or fully close to adjust the shade exactly where you need it.
  • Sun Control – when you want the sun on the patio, coming through your windows or patio doors, you can easily get it by opening the louvers at a slant, to provide up to 85% of the natural light.
  • Ventilation Control – with Louvered Roof’s, you get almost 100% ventilation. When the louvers are open, they are parallel to each other.
  • Rain Control – the Louvered Roof has interlocking louvers with a drip edge, so the rain simply runs into the louver troughs, and then out into the full perimeter gutter. It can then run into the post as a downspout or through a regular downspout. It can also be saved into a rain storage device or directed to the lawn or garden. Because of the gutter screens, you will never have to clean out leaves!

Warm-Up Your Patio

Keep your patio comfortable this fall with a Verticool rope-operated drop shade. These drop shades offer year-round weather protection at an affordable price. This is ideal to transition from summer to fall. You can keep all of your favorite patio furniture out and add little touches of autumn coziness. Here are a few ideas to help you do that.

  • If you don’t have a fire pit already, get one! This is something you can use for a lot of the year. Making smores in the summer and having hot cider next to the fire on a cool fall night. 
  • Add some soft pillows in fall colors to your chairs, couch, etc. We can definitely help you with that and recover any furniture with our upholstery services.
  • Don’t forget that cushy blanket to snuggle up with.
  • Hang some lighting. You’ll have some light from the fire pit but a little extra twinkle from string lights or hanging lanterns gives the right touch.
  • Don’t have anywhere to hang lighting? Check out some outdoor lighting ideas from ylighting.com
  • Keep your feet nice and warm by laying down an outdoor rug.

Cover It Up

If you’re worried about outdoor valuables that won’t be protected by a drop shade or louver roof, we can still help you out. Waterproof, UV protect, and winterize these assets with a custom canvas cover.

SugarHouse Ind. has served its clients in the Intermountain West since 1941. In that time, we have become Utah’s largest provider of awning, boat tops, and specialty canvas covers. After nearly 80 years, our focus is still to provide customers with the highest quality products and the best prices. We remain a family-owned company, and we remain committed to putting a personal touch into everything we do. That’s why we make every product that we offer in our 30,000 ft2 facility in Midvale, Utah.
