What Are My Choices When Purchasing a Retractable Awning?

Some people think that choosing a retractable awning can be pretty confusing.  Not with New Haven Awning. There may be a few choices you need to make to make sure your new awning perfectly accentuates your backyard and/or patio and we are here to help you along this journey.

Fabric Type and Color:

New Haven awning has access to hundreds of fabric colors and designs. We carry all the top named brands like Sunbrella, Weblon & Tempotest. We know it is a large selection and that can make things complicated so we make sure we have our people available to help guide you through the process or just to answer any of your questions.


Frame Type and Color:

There are basically 2 main choices:

  1. A powder coated frame is the most popular option. They can come in your choice of white, almond or brown. These is great if you want the awning to disappear and have no remaining structures easily visible when the awning is closed.
  2. Another option would be to use a Corradi Pergotenda which is like having a retractable awning over the top of a pergola. This method gives you a few more options that can really help turn your yard into a hidden oasis of your own.

Add A Valance?

You can add a standard valance and even choose to make it longer to block a little more sun or you can even choose to add a drop valance that would allow you to raise or lower it depending on how much sun light you would like to let in.


Method Of Operation:

Your final choice is really just a matter of preference. You can choose to use a hand crank or a remote control to retract or extend your new awning. One benefit of the remote control is that you can open you awning from the comfort of your home to help keep you house cool and block some of the suns harmful rays.
