Louvered Patio



Smart Design

The Equinox® Louvered Roof embodies smart design that elegantly increases your client’s outdoor space. Enhance their outdoor experience with on-demand sunlight, shade or rain protection, all with the touch of a button.

The Equinox Louvered Roof is manufactured with quality elements and precision engineered for exclusive comfort and control. Equinox enhances any outdoor space through uncompromising versatility and style. The Equinox patio system is strong, conforming to most wind and snow load requirements. Incorporate new elements that seamlessly integrate into an Equinox Louvered Roof system such as misters, heaters, all-new lighting systems, screens, and rain/wind sensors.


Innovative Technology

An innovative smart motor system moves the louvers into the perfect position for ventilation, sun blocking or rainfall protection. Designed with extruded aluminum, the system is strong, lightweight and durable. The low maintenance louvers can be positioned for the perfect amount of protection or ventilation.

The Equinox Louvered Roof system utilizes a high-capacity integrated hidden gutter system that manages rainwater runoff. At installation, the louvered roof is precisely angled to ensure that rainwater flows into the gutters along the perimeter of the system, keeping your space dry and comfortable.

Harnessing the sun’s energy, the battery cell powers the motor that rotates the louvers. Combined with the remote control, the louvered roof needs no wiring and uses no power from the home making it an eco-friendly and sustainable design. The Equinox Louvered Roof solar battery is securely mounted in a discreet and sunny corner of your patio.

These state-of-the-art sensors are designed to protect your Equinox Louvered Roof system even when you’re not home. They detect weather occurrences and automatically adjust your louvers, screens, and more to prevent damage, maximize energy savings and ensure your comfort everyday. The system will close your roof during an unexpected downpour or open it during windy conditions.

Rain or shine, hot or cold, your Equinox Roof can be complemented with a variety of products to get the most out of your outdoor living experience. Using the latest innovative technology and precision engineering, Equinox has created unparalleled comfort and control accessories that are among the best in the louvered roof industry.

The Somfy system is compatible with popular smart home systems available on the market today. Incorporate your outdoor oasis into your technology driven home. Use the app to control everything from one source with ease.

With the touch of a button, a Power Screen from Rainier provides shade, energy savings, and ventilation. Each screen is made to order, so you get exactly the options that suit your space and lifestyle.

The new Equinox lighting collection features four custom designed and engineered state of the art LED lighting fixtures. Our design approach centered on developing low profile, minimalistic lighting solutions that are aesthetically pleasing and balanced with any outdoor environment.

Stay outside in comfort with our cooling misting systems. Choose from our MiniCOOL or Mist360™ options. A great replacement for ineffective ceiling fans, our misters will cool the interior of your patio up to 20 degrees.

Create a cozy outdoor space with our safe and maintenance-free heaters. Gas and electric versions are available depending on your space.



I had a very positive experience with Shade Builders. Robert was very responsive to my endless questions. He also gave me great money saving suggestions and worked with my HOA to give them what was needed. The people who worked with Robert were terrific, nice and very accommodating. I would highly recommend them if you need a patio cover. They all were the best and very professional.

So glad we chose Shade Builders to install our patio!.ROB BAMBUSCH is a great guy. He was patient and helpful in assisting us with designing. He made a few trips to our place in Blythe to scout out the yard and offer his input. Wish we would have done this year’s ago. Glad we lost those shade trees…this is so much nicer and no upkeep.Good price and first class materials. Thanks Rob.  I feel very confident in sending referrals your way!

My wife and I had a few different quotes and shopped around for the best price. We met with the owner, Robert who took his time to explain everything carefully and made us feel secure going with his company. He gave us a beautiful patio cover that was at a great price. With it being so hot in our area we appreciated the fast turnaround. We enjoy our cover and our time relaxin in our backyard!
