Retractable Awnings for Houses

If you want a way to enjoy the outdoors during the summer while still staying cool, a retractable awning is an ideal solution. Retractable awnings provide protection from the sun and keep you and your family comfortable during the hot summer months. They're a great way to add a little luxury to your outdoor space and can be used to create a comfortable oasis for entertaining, relaxing, or just enjoying the beautiful weather. With such an array of styles and sizes available, you’re sure to find one that fits your space perfectly.

How Do Retractable Awnings Work?

A retractable awning is attached to your home's exterior and provides you with instant shade and comfort. It can be used to create a protected outdoor area for relaxing or entertaining, blocking the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays. Retractable awnings are available in manual or motorized operation, allowing you to adjust them according to your needs. When not in use, they retract back into their housing unit and become almost nearly invisible.

Why Get a Retractable Awning for House

Florida homeowners install awnings for a variety of reasons. Motorized retractable awnings for the home offer many advantages from offering sun protection to creating shade and additional living space.

Protection from UV Rays

If you spend a lot of time outside, you want to make sure that you are protected from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Retractable awnings provide reliable protection that's easy to use for everyone in the family.

Expand Your Living Space

During the hot summer months, having a covered outdoor living space can make all the difference. You can easily extend indoor activities outside with an awning, giving you additional room to entertain guests or just relax and enjoy the outdoors without worrying about getting too much sun.

Using awnings to add more living space is more cost effective than adding a wall or other structure and still allows you to enjoy the natural beauty of your outdoor space.

Prevents Sun Damage to Furniture

An awning can also prevent fading and sun damage to your furniture, as well as keep your house cooler in the summer months. This means you can enjoy outdoor living with less worry about the long-term effects of direct sunlight on your home and belongings.

Lower Energy Bills

Awnings can also reduce energy costs by shading windows, doors, walkways and more to prevent heat gain during the hot summer months. This means lower air conditioning bills in the long run. Furthermore, retractable awnings are an ideal choice for homeowners looking to upgrade their outdoor aesthetic without breaking the bank.

Motorized Awning vs Manual Awning: Which Is Right for Your House?

Home awnings come in two main types: manual awnings, which you must open and close with a crank, and motorized awnings, which retract automatically into their housing.

Manual Retractable Awnings

Manual awnings are usually operated by a simple hand crank. To unfurl the awning, you must turn the crank, which will cause the awning to extend out and cover an area of your choosing. This type of system is often chosen by those who are looking for a cost-effective solution that requires minimal effort. On the downside, manual retractable awnings are not as durable as motorized versions and can be difficult to manage the cords and cables that normally come with one.

Motorized Retractable Awnings

On the other hand, motorized retractable awnings offer much more convenience and durability. These systems are powered by an electric motor which can be operated with the push of a button on the remote that comes with it. They are also able to withstand stronger winds than manual models and require very little maintenance. Motorized awnings are typically more expensive upfront, but can be worth the investment if you're looking for an easy-to-use and efficient system.

At Sun Protection of Florida, we offer a lightweight, motorized model that's perfect for protecting you from the elements. Whether you want your awning installed over a patio, pool area, or your backyard, our retractable awnings have you covered.
