We love our new awning! We are very happy with the product and service received from Mile High Shade. The awning is beautiful and has added extra living space to our home. We were given a lot of different options and many, many fabric colors. The service was exceptional. Any questions were answered promptly. Installation was a breeze. I would highly recommend working with Zach and Nicholas.

The patio on our house is south facing so it was almost too hot to use all summer without cover. Mile High Shade helped us select and install a retractable awning that allows us to shade the porch in the summer, but still benefit from the warm sun during the winter months. They were on time, explained the product offerings and answered our questions. Additionally, the install was a breeze. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mile High Shade to someone looking for a retractable awning solution.

The hubby and I are loving our shades! We spent a fair bit of time deciding on what option was best for affording privacy and shade in our backyard. While our neighbors had gone with a permanent option of building a half wall for their privacy we wanted more flexibility. These shades are the perfect solution. We contacted Mile High Shade and Zach came out and worked with us to get this done- very friendly, honest and professional. Installation was a piece of cake. Nicholas came out and the job was done with a minimum of fuss. Thank you, Zach and Nicholas, for enhancing our backyard experience. I feel like I’m on vacation every time I put those shades down!

Mile High Shade did a great job on our motorized outdoor roller shade. The communication and professionalism throughout the process was flawless. The install is super clean and the finished product is beautiful. It has made our back patio everyone’s favorite room. During the day the shade keeps the sun out and the temps down and bug free at night. Great work!!

Not knowing what to expect, I sent a message to Mile High Shade inquiring about getting an awning for my deck. They quickly got back in touch with me to answer all my questions and put me at ease. They took care of every detail, coming to the house to carefully measure, make sure we had a good fit and provide us with so many great options for the shade and the fabrics. While waiting for the shades to be custom made, they kept us informed on the progress. When the time came to install the shades, they went out of their way to get it done before I had to leave town. This meant they installed the shade in the late afternoon hot sun so I would have it to enjoy when I returned. I commend the staff of Mile High Shade and their product. We love the shade on our deck and the look and ease of the awning’s operation.
