...and it will continue to do so until you have made 20 posts.

It's also NEVER recommended to post emails in the forums. Any reason WHY you do not want to share with all of us?

i just made that account for this purpose only, but I appreciate it danger mouse.
it seems to make more sense to me to let me pm people than force me to spam 20 other peoples posts just to unlock the option...

I too would like to know how you built the mounts and attached them to your home. This idea would be perfect for us to use if we had the details.
Thanks,

Your deck cover is beautiful! Do you mind sharing the plans?

Re: cover for my deck to protect from sun


I see I'm a bit late to the party, but these brackets and mounts are exactly what I've been looking for! Are the plans still available? if not, I'm sure I can come up with something similar, but do you have pointers how to attach them to the house/soffit?

Re: cover for my deck to protect from sun


Wow, can't believe this popped back
I'll have to go through the archives to find the plans that the head guy drew up.

I'll pm you as soon as I locate them. I found these when I did a quick
look see...We changed the screening in June 2013. I wanted a darker
bronze color and also wanted it longer.

This is our third cover since 1973... The first time we went all the way back to the house and I wanted it changed
because I wanted more light into
the house...then We changed the second one in 2013 cause I wanted it a darker
bronze color and we also made it about two foot longer. There was nothing
wrong with the fabric, I just wanted a change.

ok, found this one first...too many pics

Re: cover for my deck to protect from sun


If you have any doubts regarding how it works,look at the dark
cozy deck compared to the sun in the yard.
It's also cool as it lets the air flow go through; canvas traps
in the air and makes it hot underneath.

Another asset of screening, you can see through it.
And that's a good thing!

Re: cover for my deck to protect from sun


Two Knots, I got your PM and agree absolutely. Looks like I need to start a new thread detailing the entire project so I can get my post count up so I can PM back....

Re: cover for my deck to protect from sun


Wooden trellis would be a best sun blocker and the flower's shade will provide you a cool environment.
