Retractable Awnings for Patios & Decks
Awnings have been a widespread accessory in Europe for a long time, and Americans haven’t been far behind in discovering their benefits. Retractable patio awnings like the ones we offer at Sunrise Shading allow you to control the amount of shade and sun for your outdoor space.
Retractable awnings benefit both residential and commercial properties. Homeowners gain more usable outdoor space, not to mention saving a little money on their utility bills by shading an especially hot and sunny part of the deck or patio. Businesses such as restaurants and storefronts can also create a more comfortable and welcoming atmosphere with the use of retractable awnings. And when you want more sun, that’s easy to accomplish: With a motorized retractable awning, this change can be completed in seconds because you only have to push a button.
Just like window awnings keep a home cooler, deck and patio covers maintain temperatures outdoors. While an outside area can stay up to 20 degrees cooler with a patio cover, the canopy also protects from UV rays and light precipitation. Unlike many other home improvements, awnings are quite affordable.
Since buyers can select from many sizes and styles, retractable awnings come in many price points. An attractive retractable awning that complements the home’s colors lends a home a finished look while offering protection. Awnings with wireless wind sensors are also popular. These automatically retract when the wind surpasses a pre-programmed speed. This comes in handy in climates with rapid weather changes and where storms develop quickly.
Awnings with built-in panels or screens are also available. These see-through panes offer protection from the wind and block sun that’s low on the horizon, but without blocking your view! You can even customize your own awning design by combining different colors and styles.
Retractable awnings give you the power to enjoy sun or shade at a moment’s notice. You merely extend the fabric cover whenever you want. This allows you to maximize the enjoyment of an outdoor space, whether it’s at your home or place of business.
