Calgary Shade Solutions: Protecting Your Family and Your Home

Posted by Carla Nixon on 9 February 2015 | Comments

Calgary Shade Solutions?  Really?  I realize that it’s February and in the winter you don’t normally consider protecting yourself from the sun, but do you realize that Calgary is the sunniest of all Canadian large cities?  Just ‘Google’ it! I did and I found out all kinds of interesting facts about Calgary and the amount of sunshine we get each year.  Apparently since we are sunniest of all of Canada’s large cities we get around 2400 hours of sunshine each year.  Do the math, that means that just over half of our daylight hours are sunny!  So, even though it’s February, consumers should be thinking about how they can protect themselves and their Calgary property from the damages of the sun. Shade solutions are a real issue.
