Answers To Some Questions About Retractable Awnings.

What is a Retractable Awning? A lateral arm or retractable awning uses spring-loaded arms to provide tension to the fabric as it rolls from the drive tube. The retractable awning is unique in that it may be extended as needed and only as far as needed offering unlimited utility. Is A Retractable Awning Right For My Property? Retractable awnings are a great option for any homeowner or business looking to improve the aesthetics and usability of their outdoor space. For homeowners, awnings can increase a home’s value as well as provide needed shade during the summer months. Businesses can benefit from these awnings because they create more outdoor seating for customers as well as raising the storefront’s curb appeal. Why Buy a Retractable Awning?

You can adjust the tilt of the awning up to 45 degrees from the straight out position. You can extend the awning as little or as much as you like. Will I Save Money On Cooling Costs? A properly installed awning can reduce heat gain in your home up to 65 percent on southern windows and as much as 77 percent on eastern and western windows.

We now have cool rooms and a happy AC unit since my awning was installed, not to mention eliminating the fading issue with the furniture and paintings.  You can read more about saving on cooling costs here. How Do I Operate My Retractable Awning? The most popular system is a manual operator using a simple removable hand brace.
