Using Palapas for Shade

Man Posing in the Garden

A palapa is an outdoor structure that looks like a pergola with a thatched roof. Often seen peppered across beaches in Mexico and in tropical regions, palapas are great shade providers. When deciding to build a palapa over your patio for shade, or any sun blocker like a window awning or commercial awning, be sure you’re aware of how the sun moves across your property throughout the day, and position your shade structure accordingly. Hire a reputable professional who specializes in building and installing shade structures such as a palapa or a retractable awning in NYC .
