Enjoy the Many Benefits of a Retractable Fabric Canopy

Hot days laying on your patio sounds like a great idea until you consider damaging UV rays and oppressive heat. When you want to enjoy the outdoors, but want to be comfortable, consider a retractable fabric canopy.  

Stay Cool Inside & Out

Shade on your patio is the most obvious benefit, but the sun-blocking capability of retractable fabric canopies can also help cool the interior of your house. By keeping the inside temperature lower, you will see energy savings with less air conditioning use.

Stop Faded Furniture

Damage from the sun isn’t limited to our skin; your outdoor furniture can take a beating as well. Bleaching, fading, and cracking are all a result of too much sun. Extend the life of your furniture with an awning.

Flexibility First

Your fabric canopy will last longer than a fixed awning because it can move with the wind and you can store it during storms. And if part of your canopy ever gets damaged, a replacement fabric awning will fit seamlessly into your existing installation.

Convenient Coverage

Since retractable fabric canopies come in vinyl, canvas, or water-resistant fabric, you can perfectly match your outdoor esthetic. They are easy to open and close and offer incremental coverage, so you can have them open partway, all the way, or not at all. 

Join countless homeowners and transform your backyard oasis with a new installation or make an upgrade with pergola replacement fabric.
