Install a motorized retractable awning for maximum convenience.

If you are fortunate enough to have ample outdoor living space, you want to ensure you are taking steps to maximize that valuable home amenity. At Carroll Architectural Shade, we help homeowners throughout Easton and the surrounding areas design awnings that make their patio or deck easy to enjoy during all weather. Installing a new awning over your outdoor living space can keep that space comfortable, protect your furniture, and prevent you from sunburn and other UV rays effects. If you want ultimate convenience, install a motorized retractable awning in Easton. Our team will work with you to create an original awning that provides you with the following benefits.

Ultimate Convenience 

The biggest attraction to remote-controlled motorized awnings is their remote operation. Non-motorized awnings require you to crank out your awning when you want it open, which can be annoying or challenging. This challenge may even put you off using your awning in the first place, letting it sit unused while you fail to enjoy your outdoor living space thoroughly. 

When using motorized retractable awnings, you simply press a button on your remote control to extend the fabric or bring it in. You have the control you desire and ultimate convenience in adjusting how far out your shade is. 

Compatibility with Wind and Sun Sensors

Your motorized retractable awning in Easton can also be equipped with sun and wind sensors. These devices detect changes in the sun’s intensity and speed of the wind. If the sun is very hot, the awning will automatically extend. If winds are picking up, the awning will retract to avoid damage from high winds. 

UV Ray Control 

Too much sun exposure can lead to numerous skin changes and damage throughout your lifetime. In fact, scientists have reported that exposure to UV rays is the culprit behind about 65% of melanoma skin cancers. UV rays also cause 9 out of 10 cases of non-melanoma skin cancers. 

However, this doesn’t mean you should avoid the sun entirely. Things like sunscreen, sun hats, and awnings help protect you when you’re outside. Awnings are exceptional at blocking UV rays and can deter as much as 82% of these rays! This means when you open your awning, you can enjoy the warmth and light of the outdoors without directly exposing yourself to UV rays.

Longer-Lasting Furniture 

UV rays can also cause damage to the fabrics of your furniture, both inside and outside. Your motorized retractable awning in Easton will protect your outdoor furniture from excessive sun-related fading or water damage from rainstorms. If your awnings provide shade over windows or entrances, any furniture within that room will also be protected. The shade your awning provides blocks UV rays from directly entering your home and fading couch fabrics, wood floors, paintings, and more.
