Retractable Awnings Make Great Additions To Any Home

Retractable awnings can provide you with sun or shade at the push of a button. They have steadily gained popularity among homeowners for their versatility and convenience. Let's delve deeper into the many uses and advantages of installing a canopy that can be folded up at a moment's notice.

Primary Uses

Many homeowners use retractable canopies to cover their back patios while entertaining outdoors. These retractable units will stretch over a good portion of the deck area, and then they will pull back into the wall when they are no longer needed. All you need to do is hit a switch. Some creative party planners have even placed a series of retractable units to follow the sunlight throughout a given yard.

The units effectively provide shade during the brightest and warmest of days, yet they can also form a cozy shelter in the event of an unanticipated drizzle. This is because many of these units are waterproof and prevent water from penetrating through the fabric that makes up the canopy portion. You can also change the slope of the outstretched awning to accommodate the rain and control its run-off.

Retractable patio cover systems can also be converted into client-controlled "outdoor rooms" by enclosing the sides and front using fabric screens attached by zippers. These rooms can be heated in the winter and air conditioned in the summer for year-round entertaining.

There are also retractable canopies that are specifically manufactured for large picture windows. They easily block the glaring sheen experienced indoors when the sun is high in the sky; however, they can be retracted during the later hours to allow in an ample amount of light.

Advantages Over Fixed Awnings

Retractable awnings offer homeowners many advantages over the typical fixed type. Not only are they designed to fold away for controlled placement and to protect the unit in all kinds of weather, but they also last much longer and are much easier to install.

Since they are much more durable than the standard type, many retractable canopies have become long-term fixtures on the outsides of many homes. In addition to offering heat, glare, and UV ray protection, they also add a classy touch to the building's exterior. After all, fixed units have unsightly poles and supports, while a free-hanging canopy appears to be more of a natural extension of your home.

Retractable units are also much easier to install. They are usually easily mounted onto a home's exterior at sturdy points such as a beam or a wall. There is no major construction required, and most homeowners find that they can handle the labor by themselves.

However, perhaps one of the biggest advantages that retractable units have over the regular type is that they are designed to fit over small areas like windows and atypical areas like second-floor decks. Fixed canopies are not made for those purposes. Retractable units have the advantage of being custom-sized to fit any area exactly, and with several different retractable styles, you can easily select small canopies for sun-facing windows or longer dome canopies to shade wide exteriors.

Having retractable awnings installed over your patio or window can provide you with peace of mind. You can turn a hot back deck into a cool retreat in seconds and eliminate annoying glare in your living room without drawing your curtains. You can also entertain outside in almost all weather - even in the pouring rain. For all the reasons above, these units are sure to remain a choice addition to the exteriors of homes for years to come.
