Posted on Monday, December 21st, 2015 at 7:14 pm.

A retractable awning is great for both summertime and winter use!

When you think about types of awnings, the first ones that come to mind are likely the commercial awnings hanging over business entryways. They are delightful, professional and almost everywhere you look. But awnings can also be great for residential property. Retractable awnings are increasingly popular for many reasons. Are you considering one? Let’s learn more.



A retractable awning provides shade and protection, and most conveniently are motorized. These awnings are attached to your home and don’t require bulky rods or poles. This means you can pop it up and create a perfect shelter and shade from sun or snow and enjoy your patio, porch or walkway space. Whenever you wish, you can conveniently retract it back. This makes having a retractable awning essentially hassle-free and flexible. You can even save on your heating and cooling bills!






Your retractable awning can come in various designs. Choosing one that matches the outdoor style of your home will allow it to appear organic and chic as opposed to awkward or bulky. They come in various lengths so no matter how big or small your space is, the retractable awning can be modified to cover it completely if that is what you prefer.
