Typically, the main reason we see people purchasing retractable awnings, retractable folding lateral arm awnings and retractable patio covers is for the shade that they offer. While our clients will call this shade, we always refer to it as “sun protection,” and the various styles and types of awnings and fabrics will offer different levels of sun protection, as well as varying levels of protection from rain, wind, snow, hail and more.
You might be asking “Why should I get retractable awnings or other products for my property?” Maybe you are wondering about the different advantages and benefits that owning retractable awnings and patio cover systems offers. If you need to know why retractable awnings, patio covers and other products are better than their stationary predecessors, then you’ve come to the right place.
If you were wondering about the cost of retractable awnings and other sun, wind and rain protection products or the price of maintaining them over time, know that they pay for themselves. How is that, you ask? Savings.
Every time you cover a window of any kind, protect a door or extend some extra shade over your patio, pergola or deck on a very sunny and/or hot day, you are keeping some of that sun out of your property. As you might already know, sun will turn into heat as it’s brought inside. Over time, this heat spreads and adds extra strain and demand to heating and cooling systems in a property. Through effective shade and sun protection, property owners will save on energy bills related to heating and cooling. Keep in the sun when you want it, and get rid of it when you don’t, it’s that simple.
Property owners can also enhance the cooling potential of areas with retractable awnings, patio covers and other systems by taking some simple measures. Installing fans will improve air flow in an area and improve cooling efforts. Clients can also choose fabrics that reflect sunlight, displace heat and offer enhanced shading.
With stand-alone non-retractable awnings and patio covers, it’s a dice-roll every time the bad weather rolls in. Each time the item is damaged by severe winds and other intense weather conditions, costly repairs await. Instead, retractable awnings’ folding lateral arm awnings and patio cover systems can be drawn back during bad weather. This way they stay completely undamaged, and as soon as the weather’s nice again, it can be pulled out to help with some extra shade.
Property owners must be careful with any awning, retractable or not. Each product has specific wind, rain and hail ratings that dictate how well they fare during different types of severe weather. It’s important for a property owner to know when it’s appropriate to have the awning or patio cover out, and when to pull it back in. In other words, it’s important to know the limitations of awnings, and really any other product you’re installing in or on a property.
Many people have already gone through the quite-unpleasant experience of having the sun “bleach” something. That is because the sun dries things out and drains the richness of colors over time through solar radiation exposure. This entire process can be extremely frustrating for new property owners. Anyone wondering how to prevent sun bleaching of furniture and flooring inside and outside a property should look into installing retractable awnings and patio covers.
When the sun is more severe, the awning is expanded, and when the sun subsides, it can be retracted so that the great outdoors can be enjoyed once again from the window or door in question. Retractable awnings and other retractable sun protection products can be fitted with sun-resistant fabrics. Some can also be supported with timers, so they retract and expand automatically during the day or evening.
Whenever you go to a regular store or franchise to get retractable awnings and retractable folding lateral arm systems, you are restricted to their selection, their schedule and their limitations. This is a problem for individuals seeking a more contemporary, artistic and personalized feel to their retractable awnings, folding lateral arm awnings and retractable patio cover system solutions. We have the answer to the question of, “How can I get the exact retractable awning or patio cover that I want for my needs and tastes?” Look no further than RetractableAwnings.com.
We offer comprehensive solutions to all of our clientele. First, we determine the location of the retractable awning and/or patio cover; whether it’s over a deck or patio, above a window, over a hot tub or around a pool.

Our experts at RetractableAwnings.com then figure out details including your desired dimensions and what kind of cover style you desire.
