Why are there both
Exterior and Interior Retractable Screens?
The decision is based on the need. Anything you do outside the glass is 7 times more effective for heat gain than on the inside. Simply put – if heat gain is the problem exterior is the answer. If fade and glare are the primary problems then interior is the answer.
I have an existing patio cover but the sun still comes under it in the mornings or afternoons...what can I do?
You can install what’s called a
Vertical Drop Screen, which you can roll down during those problematic times of day to give you
shade reducing heat and glare.
Will the awning have posts that obstruct my views?
No, retractable awnings are self supporting and require no vertical support. You have use of your outdoor living space without having any obstacles in your way.
Why should I purchase a
retractable awning vs. a stationary patio cover?
retractable awning you control when you want shade and how much. With a
stationary awning, it is always there even on a cloudy day when you want light inside your home. Retractable awnings last longer than stationary fabric awnings since they are not exposed to the elements 24 hours a day.
How are retractable awnings and screens operated?
They can be operated with a wall switch, a remote control, even with automatic sun and wind sensors. If you have a home automation system, our retractable awnings and screens can integrate with it for further ease of use and automation.
