If you're looking for a way to provide shade over a deck or patio, and at the same time add a colorful area for you and your guests to get together, retractable awnings are an innovative solution. 

How They Work

Retractable awnings can be opened or closed. You control the awning and how much shade is provided.

Open it a little for a little shade or open it a lot to provide a lot of shade.  

In spring and summer, when the sun is higher in the sky, the retractable awning will help block out unwanted UV light and provide up to a 20 degree cooler for those under the awning.

At the same time, a retractable awning can give your utilities a break with reducing the sun's heat rays and lowering the amount of Air Conditioning needed, saving you money monthly.

The Choice is Yours

These custom-built retractable awnings come in a variety of colors, allowing them to coincide with your home's exterior colors and design.
