Free shade-screen workshops at Mesa Home Improvement Expo in June


Salt River Project is partnering with Kabat’s Ace Hardware to host free in-person shade screens workshops for SRP customers at the Sheraton Mesa Home Improvement Expo. 

Shade screens block a substantial amount of heat which is crucial in the triple-digit Mesa summer. ACE Hardware professionals will teach participants how to measure, cut and install shade screens. All of the necessary material will be provided at no cost to build one shade screen at the workshop. 

SRP customers can also receive a rebate to offset the cost of materials so they can build and install additional screens.

The home improvement expo is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday, June 28, and Saturday, June 29; and 10 a.m.–3 p.m. Sunday, June 30, at Sheraton Mesa Hotel, 860 N. Riverview in Mesa. 

The workshops will take place on the hour, starting at 10:30 a.m., with a lunch break from 12:30 p.m. to 1 p.m., and will resume at 1 p.m. Each workshop has a duration of one hour.
