To Retract Or Not To Retract That Is The Question.

Before you decide on which type of awning is right for you it’s important to understand the benefits of each. Both add beauty to your home and limit the impact of the summer heat on you cooling costs, but there are some noticeable differences in each type. Stationary or Fixed Awnings A fixed awning has a welded frame that is attached permanently to a wall or structure. These awnings don’t move and become a great permanent addition to your home or business Advantages of a Stationary Awning: Some store owners want around the clock backlit business promotion as well as shade and curb appeal.
