Shade Select

ShadeSelect adjustable patio covers are made of durable aluminum and provide both the protection of a patio cover and the freedom of a pergola at the same time. Offered in both motorized and manual systems, the louvered roof system can be opened to let in light and air and closed to keep out rain and harsh Utah conditions.

Enjoy Utah Nature with an Adjustable Patio Cover

Your outdoor relaxation zone can take a beating from nature, from intense Utah sunlight and humidity in the summer and the cold winds and rain of winter. So it might make sense to cover it up, but you don’t want it covered all the time. You might want to let in the gentle rays of sunshine in the fall but shut out the harsh heat of the summer sun—while still getting a cross breeze.

Our ShadeSelect adjustable patio covers give you the control you need:

  • They protect your family space from sun and rain when you want.
  • They allow a refreshing cross breeze, because they’re held up with pillars, similar to a pergola or gazebo.
  • You can adjust the roof to let in more sunlight.

Using either a simple manual control or a motorized system, you can open the louvers, or angled strips, of the roof whenever you want to enjoy the sky more. In moments, you can close them again to shut out a sudden rain.

An adjustable patio cover lets you enjoy nature and your porch more, letting your outdoor space become an extension of your indoor space. A top-quality cover can even add value to your Utah home.

Year-Round Protection from the Elements

The open and close feature isn’t the only thing that makes Shade Select adjustable patio covers stand out. The versatility and durability throughout the seasons makes these especially ideal for Utah. These patio covers divert rainfall onto your lawn or garden area, leaving your patio furnishings protected. Shade Selects are geo-located to take into account the wind ratings and snow loads within your region.



Shade Select patio covers are water tight — the greater the slope when installed, the better waterproofed the patio cover will be. Our sales & install teams will take this into account in the design & installation.

Wind rating

These patio covers are built to withstand at least 90 mph and can be engineered to withstand up to 120 mph. The average wind rating for patio covers in the United States is 90 MPH, areas with 110+ MPH wind ratings are hurricane areas located around the coasts.

Snow load

Our generic engineering is designed to hold up to 30 pounds psf (per square foot) of snow. For example, if you have a 20×15 patio cover (300 square feet), our system is designed to carry up to 9,000 pounds on your cover. If the snowfall ratings in your region require a heavier per square foot allowance, Shade Selects can deliver. These patio covers have been installed by our manufacturer for over 25 years and have even seen snow in the Swiss Alps! Our team has built them in places such as Aspen, Colorado, and Angoon, Alaska! Once the snow has melted from your patio cover, open your Shade Select to get back to enjoying the pleasant warm winter sun.

The Most Economical Louvered Covered System


Standard Roll-Formed Louvers:

Our durable roll-formed louver has the best strength to weight ratio in the industry and has been installed on thousands of covers all over the world. Not only is our roll-formed the most economically priced adjustable louvered patio cover available, it has also been on the market for 30 years, fitting an array of designs and shapes.

Heavy-Duty Extruded Louvers:

Our extruded louvers have double the thickness of our roll-formed and are the most competitively priced extruded louver on the market. Shade Select extruded louvers come standard with a UV resistant seal, specially designed to offer additional rain resistance and accommodate even heavier snow loads.

Customization — Sizing, Shaping, Coloring, Mounting

Our standard pricing is based on our standard Shade Selects. However, we’re well versed in knowing that each customer’s needs and desires are different in creating their outdoor space. That’s where our ability to customize comes into play!

We can go big or go small with these; we can even do window coverings! They can be rectangular, wavy, or curved. They can be custom ordered in a variety of colors (though special ordering colors does take longer for us to receive). They can be mounted on the pre-existing structures, including wood, steel, or aluminum. Let your sales coordinator know if there is a serious customization request that you have for your installation!

The patio cover roof can be divided into two separate controlled sections. This way when you are having a barbecue, the roof louvers over the grill can remain open (letting the smoke out), while your guests can sit under the closed section enjoying both air and shade!

Durable, Adjustable Patio Covers

An adjustable patio cover is a great solution, but many products on the market wear out easily, getting damaged by humidity, wind, and snow. Owners have to perform maintenance on their moving parts pretty often, which takes time away from enjoying the patio and family.

However, our ShadeSelect adjustable patio covers are superior products. They’ll make your porch or patio more enjoyable without causing you extra headaches, because:

  • They’re made of durable aluminum that won’t be damaged by harsh weather.
  • They’re customized for your exact needs, for whatever type of porch, patio, awning, or gazebo you have.
  • All the parts, including the movement system, are under warranty.
  • The moving parts take almost no maintenance.
