With a warmer-than-average Spring predicted, now is a great time to give thought to how you want to entertain outdoors this season. Huge fire pit and outdoor movie screen?

Moral of the story--be careful who you select to handle your home's technology installation. IDS has a longstanding reputation for providing quality work. Contact us to learn more.
When You Need a Roof Over Your Head
If you'd like some shade outdoors but don't have a structure, you need to take a look at Aracadia Louvered Roof systems. These can be standalone systems or attached to an existing structure. They can pivot open and closed, depending on how much light you need and the angle of the sun. They can also slide, to open completely open the space above. Definitely worth exploring for your summer enjoyment!
