What are Retractable Awnings?
Retractable Awnings are a fabric shade structure that is designed to roll out away from your home to cover a desired area. They can be attached to many types of surfaces, but are generally attached to a wall or overhang on the home.

Why would you choose a Retractable Awning vs. other shade options?
Many people choose Retractable Awnings because they don’t want posts and/or don’t need shade 100% of the time. Sometimes a building department or HOA in Arizona will not allow posts in certain backyard areas, thus a Retractable Awning can help you get around unusual requirements. Or maybe you want to have all the sunshine possible entering your home unless you happen to be outside entertaining guests, in which case you would want to use the Retractable Awning to provide a shaded area.
How much do Retractable Awnings cost?
Retractable Awnings can be a more expensive method of shading a particular area because of the motorized parts and flexibility of use. They generally fit a project where a cheaper alternative will not meet the area’s needs or desired appearance.
