Retractable awnings are one of the best fall awnings you can install for your home.

Selecting the best awning for your home can be difficult. There are a few factors you need to consider, including how you plan to use your awning. Some families like escaping under the shade of an awning during summer, while others want their awning to make sitting outside in the spring or fall more enjoyable. Different types of awnings are more suitable for different seasons, and it’s important to figure out which awning fits your needs best. If you want to find the best fall awnings that you can enjoy this season, read on to consider how a few awning types may suit your property. 

Stationary Awnings

Stationary awnings can provide a more permanent covered area for you to enjoy at your home. Stationary awnings have an impressive design and can easily be customized, making any porch or patio a prime feature of your home. However, stationary awnings should be removed before heavy winter snow arrives to ensure that they remain intact and beautiful. At Carroll Architectural Shade, you can use our storage service to protect your awning during the winter.

A free-standing stationary awning allows for more maneuvering of the awning. These fall awnings can be used for most of the season without issue and can help keep your porches and patios free of fallen leaves. 

Shade Canopies

Shade canopies and pergolas are fixed structures designed to withstand the elements. These fall awnings do not need to be removed for winter. Pergolas provide less complete protection because of their interlaced design that allows for airflow. Retractable shade pieces can be installed on pergolas, but they are best used for blocking the harsh sun during the summer season. 

Retractable Awnings

Retractable awnings are a popular choice for many homes. They can be motorized or manual, and they permit the homeowner to quickly choose between sun or shade at any time of the day. They don’t require complete removal during the winter, as they can just be closed up to avoid heavy snowfall. This means that these can be perfect fall awnings, ready to open and protect your patio from rain or falling leaves whenever you need that protection. Or, on a beautiful sunny day, you can close your awning to enjoy the sunshine. Your retractable awnings are fully customizable so that they can suit your lifestyle and home design perfectly.
