If you’re lucky enough for your property to be basked in sunlight during the warmer months, you’ll know that no matter how much you enjoy it, it is possible to have too much.
Thankfully there is a solution: retractable awnings. They allow you to create a safe, shaded space for your family outside, as well as help to cool a room that may receive too much light and warmth during the summer.
As well as specialising in the supply, fitting and maintenance of garage doors, we also have years of experience supplying and fitting high quality awnings. A retractable awning has a wide range of benefits:
These days retractable awnings can benefit the aesthetic of your home, and are discrete and almost undetectable while they are retracted within their cassette. The manufacturers we work with offer a wide range of materials and finishes.
Retractable awnings can be adjusted to suit a wide range of needs and requirements with the push of a button, whether you’re looking to create shade over a patio, balcony or window.
Traditionally, if you wanted to prevent the sunlight from entering your home you’d have to close your curtains or blinds. With an awning, you can preserve your view out of your patio or windows, while still offering shade and protection.
Awnings help to create the perfect outdoor space for furniture. Your friends and family can enjoy shade during the daytime, and shelter during the warm summer evenings where rain may make an appearance.
As well as creating shade outside, an awning can help cool a room that receives too much sunlight. An awning can also help preserve your external doors and windows, as well as contents prone to sunlight damage, such as sofas and flooring.
We only work with reputable manufacturers who offer awnings built to last, coupled with robust guarantees for added piece of mind. Some awnings even have built-in sensors to automatically retract your awning if the wind is too strong.
We work with a variety of leading manufacturers and can provide high quality awnings to any spec. Our most popular models include:
