Solar Shades and Awnings

,Solar Shades

Make your outdoor space more comfortable on hot sunny days with solar shades and awnings on your patio or porch.  Solar shades are available in numerous colors and opacities to bring elegance and sun protection to any outdoor space.  They can be raised or lowered using motorization or manually with a crank or cord.  Solar shades can cover openings up to 25-feet wide.

Whether you need to cover one opening or ten, there is a solar shade solution that will meet your needs and fit within your budget.  To control light and reduce the effect of the suns radiant heating, solar shades may be used in the home or on the exterior.


Exterior retractable awnings provide an overhead solution for that deck or lanai that gets too hot in the mid-afternoon.  With the push of a button or a few turns of an easy-to-use crank, your patio or lanai will be basking in the cool shade.  The fabric options are broad and colorful and are sure to please even the pickiest of consumers.

Don’t need an awning over an entire deck or patio?  Traditional window awnings are another popular option for keeping things cooler inside on those hot days?  Unfortunately, Home-Owner-Associations often restrict window awnings in today’s newer communities.  When not restricted by an HOA you are free to let the cool down begin.  You can even motorize today’s window awnings.

Lastly, an option not considered much anymore, is the door awning.  Keep out of the rain and keep the hot sun off exterior doors with a door awning.  A traditional style that has faded over the years but remains classic and highly functional.
