Retractable Sunbrella Awnings Offer Convenient Patio Shade

A Sunbrella Awning as the focal point of your porch or patio, is much more than desirably decorative. It extends your living space, adds a splash of color, and protects both your family and furnishings from a scorching sun. In addition, the vibrancy of a Sunbrella Awning adds to the value of your home.

Advances in awning technology now also makes it possible to have an automatic, custom window treatment that literally keeps an eye on the weather. The addition of a motor system such as Somfy, transforms it into this automatic convenience. Rather than limiting yourself to a motorized retractable awning, with a wall switch or a remote control, you have the option of adding a weather-sensitive sensor that manages weather extremes fór you!

On a mild, sunny afternoon, your porch awning extends on its own, creating a shady, sun-protected area. In doing so, it allows you to bask in the many benefits a retractable Sunbrella awning offers.

Not only does it protect you from the elements, it allows interior temperatures to drop, which result in lower air-conditioning usage. The sun-protection extends to the inside of your home. Thanks to this, sun-bleached carpets and furnishings will be a thing of the past.

If the sensor picks up a marked increase in wind speed, or heavy rains, it will automatically retract fully. In this way, your shading solution remains in tip-top condition, without you having to move from the comfort of the couch.

Sunbrella Awnings are well-known for their durable acrylic, mildew-resistant fabric lines. They understand that you are there to enjoy your patio or porch with family and friends, without worries about stains or spills.

The Sunbrella Awning fabric, which can also be used for patio furniture cushions, needs minimal maintenance. It retains its bright cheerfulness without fading, and it copes effortlessly with everyday entertaining mishaps. The fabric is designed to withstand outdoor exposure, and passes test after test with flying colors.

You may do well to compare Sunbrella's range to that of the Sunsetter Window Awning company, before making a final buying decision

You are a step closer to luxurious, laid-back, outdoor living, with a Sunbrella Awning incorporated into your patio design.
