The days of having to find relief from the sun by attaching a stationery awning to your house are long gone. That doesn’t mean that these particular units have lost their usefulness because they are still a wonderful commodity for offering sun protection. What we are referring to here is the sun shade canopy that one can get now that is portable or semi permanent.
Many of us make use of the sun shade canopy that is basically like a tent with no sides. They certainly have found their way into many backyards, and one has to admit they are worth every penny we pay for them when it comes to protecting us from the sun.
