Phoenix native Robert Mulvin began his journey in the shade business at the tender age of 16. He first earned his stripes assembling window sunscreens in his friend’s father’s garage, a part-time gig that grew into a lifelong passion and business. Fast-forward 17 years, and today he presides over All Pro Shade Concepts, the most sought-after provider of shade solutions in the Valley.

The company has blossomed under Mulvin’s leadership, employing a team of 24 dedicated to installing, selling, and managing the inventory of the most diverse range of shade products available — from window sunscreens to retractable awnings and patio drop shades.

Mulvin’s business ethos is grounded in customer satisfaction. Offering free quotes with no sales pressure, he maintains, “We are there to inspect your home or business, not to pressure you into a sale. We pride ourselves on our transparency and offering the best price from the start.”

Why choose All Pro Shade Concepts over a big-box store solution? Mulvin explains that while a cheap shade from a large retailer might save you money in the short term, the product’s quality and longevity don’t match up to their custom-made alternatives.

Mulvin’s company prides itself on providing durable, resilient fabric shades built to withstand the punishing Arizona sun. They custom make every product, professionally measuring and installing them to ensure a perfect fit and premium feel.

“All Pro Shade Concepts only deals with the top manufacturers in the country,” Mulvin states, “This, coupled with our purchasing power, enables us to offer the lowest prices and quickest delivery and installation times.”
Offering manual and motorized shades and awnings, All Pro Shade Concepts caters to a variety of customer needs. They began offering retractable shades in 2008, adding motorized options in 2012. These shades not only shield against the Arizona sun but also extend outdoor entertainment space and retain heat during winter.

Motorized awnings come with an additional bonus — built-in dimmable LED lights as a standard feature. This addition allows users to control the lighting level conveniently via remote control. Furthermore, each awning is equipped with wind sensors and a motor override for power outage scenarios.

Apart from shades and awnings, All Pro Shade Concepts has a solid reputation for delivering superior window sunscreens. Mulvin boasts of having made and installed more than 300,000 window sunscreens to date. Customers can customize their screens by choosing the frame, sun blockage percentage, and fabric color to suit their specific needs.

The company’s Textilene shades are popular, blocking a majority of the sun’s rays and resulting in a cooling cost savings. Moreover, customers can take advantage of the SRP Screen Rebate offered by SRP for professionally installed shade screens, another smart way to stay cool during Phoenix’s scorching summers.

Mulvin says, “We conduct business with integrity, ensuring satisfaction for our clients, suppliers, and contractors.” This belief, combined with an unmatched commitment to customer service, is why All Pro Shade Concepts is the top choice for shade solutions in Arizona.
