Retractable awnings and solar shades save you money on your energy bills by keeping the temperature cooler indoors when the porch and windows are shaded, give your indoor carpet and furnishings longer life by reducing sun glare, and expand your backyard living space during the summer months. Most importantly, retractable awnings block out up to 96 percent of the sun’s harmful Ultra Violet rays that can damage skin.
