You want quality, durability, and reliable service when it comes to making home improvements, so before you purchase retractable awnings, get references for local dealers from the Better Business Bureau and look at consumer reports on Angie’s List.

We recommend that you select a dealer that does their own installations and make sure you have a thorough understanding of what’s included in the product and installation warranty. Protective hoods provide added protection from rain and wind and keep the first few inches of fabric clean so when you roll out your retractable awning, the entire fabric area will be color consistent.

Modern awning fabrics by Sunbrella, Dickson, and Sattler are 100% acrylic, resist mildew rot, fading, and are available in a wide selection of colors and patterns.
