My husband bought us a KE Outdoor Sunshelter Elite Plus model – expensive for what you get! Our deck faces southwest, and this model offers something called “R-Pitch,” which means it can be angled easier to block the sun. We’ve used it for a couple of days, but it’s one more thing to go wrong. Too many moving parts mean more to break. The shade is nice, though. Since we didn’t purchase the optional wind or rain sensor, we try to close the canopy if the wind gets up as too many of the reviews expressed wind damage issues. The same goes for the rain. Metal and fabric aren’t as good as a porch roof, but I know for sure a porch roof costs a whole lot more and requires a costly building permit.
