Retractable Awning

For homeowners who love to spend time outdoors, protection from harmful UV rays is crucial. Avoid an increased skin cancer risk by installing a retractable awning in your outdoor living space. On days with unbearable heat, awnings provide reduced temperatures in both outdoor and indoor seating areas. Deterring the sunlight from reaching the windows, retractable awnings can assist with keeping indoor temperatures nice and cool.

Retractable awnings also offer a safe haven from blinding sunlight, allowing you to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors while reading or playing games. With retractable awnings, there are a variety of design and layout options. Some even feature screens to protect from bugs. One of the best features of the retractable awning is the ability to motorize the shade. With the touch of a button, your retractable awning will assemble itself over your outdoor living space. No work required!

In spaces that receive maximum sunlight during the hottest part of the day, retractable awnings give homeowners a temperature reducing location for pets to play outdoors. Another added bonus with retractable awning is shelter from the rain. If you’ve ever planned a barbecue or hosted an outdoor party only to scramble to get everything indoors, you can appreciate the retractable awning even more.

Professional installation for the retractable awning is strongly recommended. This product is heavy and requires someone with technical know-how to properly affix the awning to the house.

While there are other options for outdoor shading, such as the fixed awning, a retractable awning is superior. When the weather is stormy or windy, having an awning that can be put away easily will save costly repairs. Also, there are times during the day when you may like to use your outdoor space for tanning or other activities requiring sunlight. Fixed awnings limit the options homeowners have when it comes to utilizing their outdoor space to the fullest potential.

Another benefit of the retractable awning is that it can be tailored to your exact needs both during production and after installation. You can open the retractable awning precisely according to your shading needs. If multiple people are using the outdoor space, you can change the retractable awning for shade in one area and sunlight in another.

The best part of retractable awnings is that they are transportable. Fixed awnings become a part of the house. Retractable awnings can be taken with the homeowner after a move and offer more options as far as sizing and design.
