How to Choose a Retractable Awning

As the Summer season creeps closer, last year's memories of hot, unusable decks come back. A nice, quality, well made awning completes the deck and makes it a magnate for fun. So what are the factors in choosing one? First, limit your investment to retractables made and serviced by a financially solid company that will be around to service the unit. Another consideration should include the sales and installation team you work with. Are they knowledgeable, professional and ethical? Lastly, the specific model you choose, the fabric, frame color, motorization and accessories, should be selected to reflect the taste of the home owner, with the counsel of the awning professional. Big box stores and internet sales often produce buyer's remorse.

Sunair Solar screens save Seasonally

Not every window is appropriate for awnings, but many still get baked by the Summer sun, heating up window glass, radiating UV damaging rays and heat gain into your home.  Solar Screens may be the solution. Installed on the exterior preferabbly or on the interior as an option, Solar screens will save you money in many ways. They reduce Solar heat gain, lowering  electric Air Conditioning bills. They allow your HVAC unit to cycle less frequently, extending its lifeand deferring replacement costs. Screens allow you to enjoy the view, but block damaging UV rays. This protects your drapes, floors, furniature and carpet.

Pergola Awning pays for itself

By covering our  17 X 35  upper deck, our new Pratic pergola by Sunair, allows us to take dinner reservations and book wedding receptions with complete confidence. We expect this investment to completely pay for itself in less than 1 1/2 years.
