Pergola Canopies and Solar Shades

Do you have an existing pergola that you are unable to use? We can install a canopy system underneath your pergola that will not only deliver shade but will allow water to run off, giving you a dry space below.

And when you need shade or privacy, consider a retractable solar shade. These shades are perfect for your porch, around your hot tub, or outdoor dining space!

ECCO did a great job with the sunroom… The staff always answered my questions via phone call and email. The workers that came out were professional and experienced. The sunroom is beautiful and even through the cold weather the family is able to sit outside and still be comfortable. The glass is amazing and really blocks out the cold wind and air. Thank you ECCO for the new upgrade to the house.


ECCO did a fantastic job with our new sunroom! This build came with some challenges since they were connecting to another room. ECCO successfully tied into the existing room and the job looks great! We are very pleased with the outcome of the room and enjoying it everyday! If you are considering a sunroom then you should consider ECCO. You will not be disappointed!


I am very pleased with my sunroom that was completed by ECCO Sunroom and Awning of Chesapeake on the front of my house in 2019, I really love it. In fact, I loved it so much, I got another sunroom added to the back of my house last month (Aug 2022). It is beautiful and I am enjoying both of them. If you interested in getting a sunroom addition to your home, ECCO Sunroom and Awning (Chesapeake) is the place to get it from. Very pleased with the product as well as the company!


ECCO installed our solar shades on time, as promised. The installation crew was pleasant and efficient. They returned for some minor adjustments, no problem. The shades are fantastic!


We recently converted our screened porch into a sunroom. We are delighted with the finished room! ECCO staff and workers were prompt, professional, friendly and eager to make sure we got what we wanted. The sliding windows and screen are top quality and very easy to open and securely lock. We highly recommend doing business with ECCO!


After two years and ten home-improvement projects working with a plethora of contractors, I can say that ECCO has been one of the best companies I’ve hired. Erica ensured the process was pleasant and worry-free from our first meeting to the last. Kelvin and crew did a phenomenal job installing; they were punctual and professional. My family and I were enjoying our new pergola by dinner time. Great job!

 I will be referring this company to anyone I know that is looking for this type of product! I feel my money was well spent for the exceptional service and product I received from ECCO! I now have the beautiful, comfortable and functional sunroom of my dreams!
We absolutely love our porch, it has enhanced our home and will be used frequently when the weather permits, and continuously when spring and summer arrive. The porch is well constructed and enhances the safety of our home as there is no way one could break through the doors or windows. With the housing market booming this investment will improve the cost of our home by far more than the cost to build. We are so happy that we purchased this beautiful addition for our home and family.
I love what they did to our sunroom! Absolutely perfect! Great quality, good price and everything is on time.
This is our second ECCO sunroom. When we moved to a waterfront home, we knew that a sunroom would enhance our view and appreciation of the location. We wanted to have an old wooden deck removed, and replaced with a new deck and sunroom area on the rear of our home. Our very professional design consultant, James Whitley, presented us with various options. He listened to all our concerns, suggestions, etc., and designed a perfect 4 seasons sunroom for us. All of our communications with the company were polite and in a timely manner. The workers on our new deck and sunroom, as well as the electrician were professional, knowledgeable, and courteous. Both the sunroom and deck are of the highest quality products and will last forever! We would highly recommend ECCO Sunroom and Awning to everyone.

Our consultant, Erica, was very pleasant and on time. She was informative and provided us with a variety of options for our awning project and patio enclosure. She answered all our questions simply and if she didn’t know she referred the question to someone in ECCO who had the qualifications to answer. She made us feel comfortable, demonstrated her products and made the entire process feel seamless. I would definitely recommend her to my neighbors.

I had the opportunity to speak with several companies in the Hampton Roads area that would satisfy my need to purchase an awning for my newly constructed home. I was particularly impressed by the Design Consultant from ECCO Sunroom & Awning, Mr. Niles Groves. His professionalism and product knowledge of awnings made it easy for me to decide which way to go when it was time to settle on a purchase. He displayed multiple examples of awning fabrics, colors and suitable framing that accented my homes curves along with satisfying my particular style. There was no need to compare any further. One visit and my search was over.

Thank you for your professional service Mr. Groves


Our recent experience with ECCO Sunrooms was a very pleasant one. We are delighted with out new sunroom and looking forward to spending many contented hours there.   Thank you and KUDOS to all who were involved in making Our dream a reality.

ECCO Sunroom and Awning enclosed our porch and created a wonderful sunroom.  The ECCO team provided a pleasant experience from our initial contact with them to the conclusion of the installation.  We understood the materials that would be used and had a timetable for the project.  All of our questions were answered thoroughly, and we were updated as we moved through the installation process.  The crew was careful and cleaned up so there was no evidence they had worked around our shrubs and in our flowerbeds.  Now complete, our sunroom looks like it has always been here.  We love enjoying the garden in comfort, without regard to the weather outside, all day and every day.  The “height” of unsolicited compliments came from the gentleman who climbs on our roof to clean our house gutters:  he complimented the “seam alignments” and said whoever did the installation did a great job!  We highly recommend ECCO Sunroom and Awning.

We had a wonderful experience with ECCO. For those who are looking for the low-cost competitor for awnings; don’t. A superior product and superior install will give you the longest lasting awning that looks great attached to your home. This is what ECCO delivers; a high quality product with a high quality installation with great warranties. ECCO installers removed the siding, installed a ledger board, coverer and flashed the board, reinstalled the siding, and routed the wire inside the wall. The low cost competitor wasn’t going to do anything like that; they just going to screw the awning to the studs over the siding and it would have looked horrible. I am glad we chose ECCO; they delivered a product that looks as nice retracted as it does extended and will hopefully last for years to come.

Compliments to everyone on the Ecco Remodeling team for a beautiful outcome on our converted screened porch. I was able to receive an excellent financing option, our sales rep was knowledgeable and helpful. But particular thanks are extended to our installers for a job well done and to the office manager who handled some hiccups with promptness and professionalism. I highly recommend this company for sunroom remodeling. 


We had a screen porch removed and a Sunroom installed. I must say that we love the outcome, it’s better than we could have hoped. We have referred friends and family to work with ECCO and we would use them again in the future.

Our new under-pergola canopy from ECCO Sunrooms & Awnings managed the hurricane well. Matter-of-fact, a downburst of wind blew under the deck and completely knocked out a section of lattice; not just a piece of lattice, but an entire section – framework and all – where it was screwed into the deck itself. Yet, up on top of the deck, all went unscathed.

We installed a motorized awning with ECCO Sunroom & Awning in spring 2019; it’s been installed professionally and on time. It’s working as expected for the second summer. We even recommended it to our family, happy with it also.

Just a note to say “thank you” for the installation of our new under-pergola canopy system. The canopy looks great with Merrilyn’s material color selection against the house’s color in the background, and the system is easy to operate and does so, smoothly.

Your leads mechanic, Ricardo and his assistant Bo showed up on-site as scheduled and worked steadily the entire time while here. Both gentlemen exhibited themselves as professionals and carried themselves accordingly; at the same time, they were polite and courteous.

The system installation was neat & clean, with the surrounding area left in the same condition as when the ECCO crew started the job.

This is the first time getting work done on house is a pleasant experience.

I just want to let you how much we are enjoying our new Sunroom and to thank you for all your help in making recommendations and suggestions during design. We finally have it furnished and have been enjoying it for 2 weeks now. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be our favorite room. Even before it was furnished we received many complements. Thanks again Ed, and to Eddie, and to all the different crews involved in the construction (foundation, construction, electrical, and flooring). The work was all first class and proceeded in a timely manner and minimal disruption to us.
