Window Awnings

Adding awnings to your windows can help reduce the amount of strong UV rays entering your home. As a result, your house will stay cooler in the summer, and you will use less energy and reduce cooling costs. These awnings are particularly useful on west-facing windows to provide shade from the afternoon sun. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, window awnings can reduce 77% of the heat entering your home. We offer two popular awning styles: cottage awnings and cottage drop shades. Cottage awnings feature a retractable arm for a traditional awning look that is adjustable depending on your needs. The cottage drop shade is also adjustable and retractable, but this model raises and lowers vertically.

Tension Shade Systems

Our Tension Shade Systems provide the expected benefits of a retractable awning with a stylish and modern design. This system can be mounted in conjunction with a glass roof or pergola or mounted to a wall and supported with legs. Since it has additional support, it can cover a larger area than a traditional awning.

To protect your awning from strong winds you can install a wind sensor. When it detects winds strong enough to cause potential damage, it will automatically retract your retractable awning.
