When most people think about awnings, they imagine the old-fashioned type that hangs over movie theaters or barber shops, but there is another kind of awning that is great for any home or business: a retractable awning. Retractable awnings offer many solutions and are becoming increasingly popular for many reasons, including versatility and affordability.

Great for Any Purpose

You can choose from a variety of colors made from high-quality fabric that blocks out different amounts of light  Choosing a retractable awning will complement your personal taste and the style of your home.  It’s a natural extension, and not an awkward add on. You can also choose the length of the awning, so that it does not extend beyond your area or leave out parts you want to protect.

Cost-effective

Typically, these awnings only have attachments to the house, meaning you won’t have to deal with standing poles obstructing your view. Retractable awning placed outside help you save on your heating and cooling bills. You can also take them down and store them when they are not in use. Purchasing a cover that you place over it while in storage also extends the life span of your awning, so that you do not have to replace it for several years.

Hassle-free Removal

A retractable awning provides shade and protection from the weather, but they are easy to remove when not in use or during winter months.  Businesses benefit from retractable awnings because they offer customers refuge from the rain when entering or leaving the business.
