Everywhere I go I see homeowners
spending more time than ever on their
decks and patios. Whether it’s a family
barbecue or simply relaxing with a good
book, it’s hard to find a better place to
unwind than in your own backyard. That is, if
the blazing summer sun or a sudden shower
doesn’t put a damper on your activities.
A retractable motorized awning can give
you the best of both worlds. It rolls out at
the touch of a button in less than a minute,
then retracts to fit snugly against your
house when you want to enjoy a romantic
evening under the stars. Not only is it up
to 20 degrees cooler under the shade of
an awning, but awnings block harmful
ultraviolet rays that can lead to skin cancer.
They also keep the sun off windows and glass
doors, protecting furniture and rugs from
fading while lowering air-conditioner bills.
Since they’re exposed to the elements,
awnings take a lot of abuse, so it’s
important that they’re made to last.
I’ve found the SunSetter motorized awning
to be a quality product that’s hard to beat.
SunSetter has been in business for
20 years and makes the bestselling
retractable awnings in America.
