So, how do you make your outdoor space into the place where everyone wants to spend their time this summer? The answer is easy, retractable awnings!

Options for Retractable Awnings
You have a lot of options when it comes to choosing a retractable awning, and while that’s great, some people can feel overwhelmed with the choices. Understanding what each type of awning is most suited for will help you to make the best decision. There are many retractable awning features that work particularly well for making you more comfortable in the Midwestern climate.
In addition to the style, you also can choose to have your awning motorized so you can control it with a remote control instead of manually opening and closing it. You can also choose the size, frame color, fabric style and colors, and more. You can even add a drop down valance for added protection and shade when the sun is lower in the sky.
