What our customers are saying about us!

My experience with Gateway Sunrooms and Shades was a positive experience. I knew what I wanted and my representative, Peter Thiessen, was quick to get me the design drawings and quotes. He tailored a specific design around our existing home, decks and garage and made an excellent fit that doesn’t look like a cheap add on. We had one small warranty issue that Peter attended to immediately and to our satisfaction. They were careful , respectful and considerate to my family, home and pets during construction. The project came in right on time and budget . We will enjoy the two rooms we added to our home for years.

We’re loving our new sunroom !! We can use our deck much more now that we’re protected from the wind, insects and hot sun. Peter and his crew did a great job installing the room – on time and on budget. We highly recommend Gateway !

We were looking for retractable screen doors for our French doors. Gateway Sunrooms and Shades installed 2 doors for us. When the installer was putting in the doors we got into a conversation about outdoor spaces. He told me about the H5000 shade. It is an automated horizontal shade that blocks the wind and provides 95% UV protection which prevents the deck furniture from being blown across the deck and increases the enjoyment of our outdoor seating area. When the wind is uncomfortable or when shade is desired we just push the button on the remote to increase our comfort.

H5000 shades

In the summer of 2015, I had Gateway Sunrooms and Shades replace my existing deck roof with their pre-manufactured roof. I was very impressed with the quality of the product along with the professionalism provided by Peter Thiessen. The new patio roof gave us extra headroom along with a new clean look.  Peter was easy to talk to and understood what I was looking for in improving my deck area.  The job was completed on time and within the described budget. The new roof has definitely added to the value of my home.

Our decision to go ahead with a screened in deck was as a result of Peter’s helpful suggestions and knowledge of product. His coworkers were friendly and very professional in their work. Everybody was always thinking outside the box to make project look like it was not an add on. I would recommend Peter and his staff to anyone wanting a job well done!!. Peter stuck to his deadlines and our budget.

New Screened Deck

We recently installed new exterior doors to our home which included a panel door with a side light and new French doors in the dining room that open outward for better function of that space.The French doors allow us to have a completely unobstructed view when open; which we love. However this posed a problem in the summer as we could not leave the doors wide open due to insects and safety concerns. Then came the real issue: how do we screen these doors and have an element of safety but more-over keep our amazing view unobstructed? Gateway Sunrooms and Shades was able to create the best solution with a extra wide retractable screen door which I can lock. It allows us to open both French doors and close the screen door with one pass. It keeps the insects out and we can enjoy the view without any impeded vision. When both screen doors are used, the cool summer breezes whispers through the house bringing in all the great summer air. The screens practically disappear when not opened as it rolls away out of sight; which is important to me because it is aesthetically pleasing to me.

We have a wonderful deck on the side of our house. In the summer, when the sun is out, we found that it got too hot to enjoy seating outside. Gateway Sunrooms and Shades provided and install a retractable awning to provide the best shaded spot in our favourite seating area.
