What is a Retractable Awning?
A retractable awning is a tent-like or roof-like structure that provides protection from the sun’s harmful rays. Since many awnings are made from materials such as corrugated fiberglass, polycarbonate and aluminum, they are sturdy and stand up to the elements. But as retractable awnings, they are easy to roll up while not in use. That gives you a way to enjoy the sunshine when you want to and also helps keep your retractable awning safe from bad weather such as rain, wind and snow.
Another benefit of our retractable awnings is that they are available in motorized versions. With a motorized retractable awning, our customers love the ease in which they are able to enjoy the comfort of a shaded patio, deck, or exterior area with the push of a button.
If you enjoy energy savings, you will also love how our retractable awnings contribute to decreasing electricity costs by keeping your home cooler in the summer due to the shade provided — thus decreasing the effects of the sun’s powerful rays on the temperature in your home.
