Top 7 Reasons to Invest in a High Quality Patio or Deck Covering

Backto all posts


When the sun is shining and the weather is warm, you likely want to spend more time outside, enjoying your backyard, patio, or deck. You’ve invested time and money into making your outdoor living space beautiful and functional, but have you thought about adding a high end retractable awning?


There are many benefits to purchasing and installing high quality awnings or quality pergolas, but the fact remains that many manufacturers simply do not meet high standards of quality when designing, engineering and manufacturing these products. RetractableAwnings only provides the highest quality European patio and deck coverings, and we’re proud to do so. But what’s the benefit to you? Why should you invest in high end retractable awnings?

Read through to learn some of the many reasons you should be investing in quality products for your outdoor living space. You won’t regret going the extra mile in ensuring your patio and deck coverings are quality products, and you’ll be rewarded with the ultimate outdoor space.


They Provide UV Protection

Spending your time outside in the summer is enjoyable and healthy, but too much sunshine can lead to sunburns, skin cancer or even heat stroke. High quality awnings save your summer plans by providing you with shade and protection from the harsh sun’s UV rays, any time during the day.


Spend your time in the backyard with your family and friends, cooking and using your BBQ, without worries over UV rays and sun damage. A high end retractable awning will keep you cool, comfortable, and protected.


They Protect your Patio or Deck from the Elements

Not only do high quality awnings and quality pergolas protect you, your friends and your family from the sun and heat, they also protect your outdoor space from the elements. You might like to sit outdoors through every season, but weather such as rain and snow could prevent you from enjoying your backyard in the spring, winter, and fall.

High end retractable awnings and retractable roof pergolas will allow you to stay outside, even if the weather isn’t cooperating. You can enjoy your time outside without worrying about getting wet and being exposed to wind. Retractable awnings are a wonderful solution for the sun and light rain, while we recommend retractable pergolas for sun, heavy rain, and hail. If your area experiences snow, look into rotating and retractable louvered roof pergolas as a way to stay outside even when it snows.


They’re Energy Efficient

Having a patio or deck covering can help reduce your use of air conditioning. How? The shade from a high end retractable awning will keep you cool and comfortable, even in higher temperatures. Skip out on blasting the AC and spend a bit of time outside. High quality awnings use durable and substantial solution-dyed acrylic fabrics and materials that keep the heat of the sun to a minimum.


With a retractable awning, you can reduce your reliance on air conditioning and keep cool, even in the middle and hottest time of the day.


High Quality Products Can Be Repaired

Unfortunately, when people purchase an awning that’s made with low quality materials (components and fabrics), it’s almost impossible to repair. This results in a patio covering that might break after a year and be virtually useless. 


The truth about the retractable awning and retractable pergola industry in the USA is that product regulations are non-existent. This means investing in high end retractable awnings from Europe and certainly not from China is essential for the longevity of your product. RetractableAwnings provides warranties for each part of each product – you can rest assured that your awnings and pergolas are simply of the most impeccable quality around the globe and made to last.


Retractable Awnings uses Quality European Products

Because we want to ensure that our customers receive the best quality in their search for the perfect patio and deck coverings, we only sell products from Europe. This is because Europe has engineering requirements and regulations for high end retractable awnings, while countries like the USA and China do not. Our high quality awnings are the absolute highest quality in the world and are of a commercial-grade.


You can sit back, relax, and enjoy products that have been subject to the most stringent quality control in the industry when you invest in products by RetractableAwnings.


High Quality Products are Safety Regulated

Your new retractable awning or pergola will sit right above your head, making it essential that this item be sturdy and safe. You want to thoroughly enjoy your new high quality awning, and that means you should be able to host company and sit underneath without thinking about your awning breaking and falling. 


You’d never want a cheap product to fall, break, or injure someone, so investing in high end retractable awnings is the only way to safely cover your outdoor space. You can trust in RetractableAwnings and our guarantee that your products will be subject to world-class safety and quality regulations.


Quality Coverings Last

While safety is our top priority, one of the best parts about investing in high end retractable awnings is that your awning, canopy, screen, or quality pergola will last. Unlike cheaper alternatives that are lucky to make it to a year without failing, RetractableAwnings sells items that will keep you sheltered, shaded, and dry for many seasons.


Enjoy the summer, spring, fall, and winter with awnings that stand the test of time. You can host parties, get togethers, and meals with those you hold near and dear underneath deck coverings that will last.
