1. You have a deck, porch, or patio that rarely gets used

Decks are among the most desired features for homes, but in many cases they quickly become unused space.  For many homeowners, their deck is too hot or glare from the sun makes it difficult to enjoy the outdoors.  With a retractable awning, these common problems are no longer an issue.  Retractable awnings provide cool, comfortable shade so that you have a great outdoor space to relax and unwind without the sun shining in your eyes.

2. You want to save money on energy costs

If your air conditioner runs your electric bill too high in the summer, it might be time to consider a retractable awning.  When extended, awnings block the sun’s direct rays from hitting any glass doors or windows, reducing the amount of solar heat gain during direct sunlight by as much as 70%.  Without the sun’s direct rays hitting the glass and heating your home, the indoor temperature can be reduced by up to fifteen degrees.  What this means is a possible 52% reduction in your cooling costs!  With all that money saved, a retractable awning quickly pays for itself.

3. You’re tired of sun damage

We all know that sunblock is important for protecting our skin, but what about outdoor furniture and decks?  Constant sunlight will cause your furniture to fade and decks to discolor and crack.  By blocking direct sunlight, awnings help protect all of these.  Our fabric collection aids in the prevention of sun damage to the skin. Sunbrella® fabrics are recommended by the Skin Cancer foundation; they block harmful UV rays by as much as 94%.  You’ll be safer outdoors under an awning, and your furniture and deck will last much longer too.

4. You‘re looking for ways to improve the look and value of your home

Does your deck or patio look like it’s missing something? A retractable awning can help give it a finished look.  Awnings also add curb appeal and resale value to your home, and they’ll help your house stand out in the neighborhood.    

5. You want to add personality and style to your outdoor living area

With many options to choose from, our awnings add style and character to any home.  Choose from hundreds of fabrics—patterns and solids—and several models.  From small mounting widths to large areas that need to be shaded, we have awnings to fit every need, style, and budget.  They are easily extended or retracted with the push of a button so you can have sun when you want it and shade when you need it.
