Custom Patio Shade Structures for San Diego, CA, Homeowners


The sun can be a cruel mistress. One day it’s warming your face as you stroll along the beach with the waves lapping around your feet, the next day it’s turning your patio tiles into hot plates ready to bake those same bare tootsies into fillets of sole. Homeowners in San Diego, California, have always had a love/hate relationship with the sun, but a little shade can go a long way in finding a happy medium between overexposure and inside confinement. At Pacific Patio, we are the company to turn to for custom patio shade structures that provide the perfect balance of protection from the sun and access to the outdoors.

More Than Just a Cover Overhead

When mulling patio shade structures, key considerations are their ease of use, durability, and maintenance requirements. After all, you don’t want to spend a lot of time repositioning your shade provider throughout the day, or having to scrub it clean regularly. Umbrellas may be relatively inexpensive, but their coverage is limited. Awnings provide more shade, but they need to be washed at least every few months to prevent stains and limit the growth of mold and mildew. Pacific Patio offers patio shade structures that never rot, warp, rust, or succumb to insect damage. What’s more, they’ll wash clean with just a quick spray of a garden hose and can be installed with minimal disruption to your home, usually in just one or two days. Our options include:

  • Pergolas – These structures have fixed lattice roofs and open walls. They’re available in both attached and freestanding configurations.
  • Operable pergolas – Just like the name suggests, these pergolas have pivoting, motorized louvers that can be rotated to provide anything from full shade to maximum exposure.
  • Patio covers – These solid-roof options boast thermal panels overhead that deflect heat, helping to mitigate extreme temperatures.

And all of our patio shade structures can be fitted with side screens for additional protection from bugs and glare.
