Vinyl is the ideal choice if you are looking for a maintenance-free material that will not require staining or painting. Vinyl also last longer than wood and is resistant to decay and rot. Choose the UV resistant vinyl that will not discolor or fade after sun exposure if you are going with this option.
Then we come to an electric powered patio heater. And within this type, you have a number of different choices to also make. There are electric patio heaters that can plug directly into an outlet (but not many, unless that outlet is dedicated just for this). When it is evident that the style and power needed is more than what can be plugged in, you have to consider the cost to have an electrician run wiring just for the patio heater. And with this type, you can also be strapped to where it can be placed to provide the heat you are looking for. Some are ceiling (or rafter) mounted and their base allows for some movement to direct heat to a specific spot.
Shade structures were once all made from canvas. However, today there are many colourful acrylic fibres that are woven together to make shade cloths. The cloths are long lasting and tough, making damage from wind or storm unlikely. The closeness of the weave creates different levels of protection against the sun, giving the consumer yet more choice about the amount of protection desired - and cost, too.
