Retractable Patio Awnings
Another great option to get some shade for your outdoor living space is to install a retractable awning. The best part about a retractable awning is that they allow you to control your patio space. You can easily retract and extend your awning depending on how much sun or shade you desire. They are also more affordable than a stationary patio cover so it’s ideal if you have a limited budget. There are different fabric choices, material and styles that you can customize to your liking. Retractable awning cut down energy costs by shading your windows and doors, protect your outdoor furniture from the sun, and add more appeal to your outdoor living space, making it a more inviting, enjoyable place for you and your guests.
