Retractable Patio Awnings
Patio awnings can be retractable or fixed, motorized or manual, fabric or aluminum. Retractable patio awnings are made of a high tensile strength fabric that provides up to 95% shade. Attached to your house is the storage for the retractable patio awning. The fabric is attached to two elbows that collapse into the storage container. If you have a motorized patio awning, all you have to do is press a button and watch as your awning rolls out to provide shade. With a manual retractable patio awning, you will use a chain to pull out your retractable awning to the desired distance. The beauty of a retractable patio awning is that it can be stored if you want a little extra sun during the winter, but is easy to pull back out when you desire.
