Need help to block the bright sun when we are on our patio.

When the sun starts going down in the afternoon we get a streight shot of hot sun on our back patio. I would like to come up with a way to block out some of the sun.

Tilting umbrellas. So, do you have a patio cover but the sun is setting and it doesn't help? Pictures please.

patio cover would do but if you got money, you can do more by tilting a roof to make a cover in your patio.

Thanks for your information. What I have is a patio with a cover and was trying to come up with some sort of shade idea that would block out some of the afternoon sunshine. Maybe something we could hang.

I've seen people use rolled bamboo shades, like the ones they put on the inside of their all-season rooms. They would be hung on the horizontal wood beam of your patio cover. has them for $37.99, 72 inches x 72 inches. I think they can be hung with simple hooks.
