About Lifetime Exteriors

Lifetime Exterior Shades is a Comox Valley business in operation since 1987. Our reputation has been built on integrity and honest hard work, always putting the customer first. Our rates are reasonable and we focus on quality. We will help you choose and install the right awning, shades or patio cover for your needs.

Mark Tizya, Owner

Mark began his construction career in the glass trade right after high school in 1986. After six years as general manager of a European rollshutter company in Vancouver he started Heritage Shade & Shutter in Vancouver in 2003. After 15 years running that business, Mark settled in the Comox Valley and acquired Lifetime Exterior Shades in 2020

The History of Lifetime Exterior Shades

Lifetime Exteriors was founded by Bruce Corra in 1987. Originally, the business focused on supplying and installing siding, but it has now evolved to dealing exclusively with the installation of awnings, screens and patio covers. Known for his courteous manner, fairness, and attention to detail, Bruce ran the business until his retirement in 2020 when Mark Tizya took on the operation of Lifetime Exterior Shades, bringing over 30 years of industry experience to the business.

Locally Made Awnings

We manufacture many of our awnings locally using the highest quality parts and materials. With such control over the manufacturing process, we can give you the very best products and service with shorter lead times.  

Our Suppliers and Partners

We carefully choose the best Canadian suppliers for our products including awnings manufactured by Rolltec in Ontario, screens from Phantom Screen Systems in Abbotsford, BC and interior shades made by Timestyles in Vancouver, BC.
