Motorized and Manual Retractable Awnings

Choose the Perfect Solution to Your Sun Control Challenges

Sometimes you feel like some sun, sometimes you don’t. A retractable awning provides all the same advantages of a traditional awning, but it also gives you the option of choosing if and when you want to use it. This makes it great for sudden afternoon showers or the sweltering summer sun, which are so common here in the Tampa–St. Petersburg, Florida, area. In addition to being a high-quality investment, our awnings are also an aesthetic asset. You can select from a wide variety of colors, patterns, styles, textures, designs, and options to make sure that the one you choose will be the one that best complements your home or business. Every retractable awning that we install lends its intriguing look of quality and timeless sophistication while protecting your property, saving you money, and establishing your patio’s any-weather, any-season practicality.

Think about all the places and uses for an awning, then think about using a retractable awning. A retractable awning provides all the same advantages of a traditional awning, but it also gives you the option of removing it when you want to. Retractable awnings maintain the protection factor of a standard awning, but provide the additional benefit of choosing when you want to use it.

Patio or Deck Canopies

KE Outdoor Elite Plus retractable patio awning

The most popular type of retractable system is one that provides a canopy or awning over your patio or deck. This popularity likely stems from its practicality in the hospitality and commercial industries as well as the residential, home marketplace.

Window Awnings

Window awnings are a smart investment, but retractable window awnings may be even smarter. They can hang lower, blocking more of the sun’s rays on those hot days, but can fully retract to let more of the sun inside when so desired.
