Retractable awnings are a non-negotiable requirement for Florida homes., You need a quality canopy to enjoy the beautiful weather without living with the sun’s intense heat and glare, especially if you spent serious money on a patio or deck.
As the leading provider of any SunShade retractable awning in northeast Florida, ArmorGuard Exteriors wants to share the key things to look for when buying your awnings. Here are the three areas you should focus on:
First of all, put a premium on the design of your retractable awning. Check the fabric and its selection of colors and patterns to match with your home’s architecture. It’s a plus to your curb appeal if you pick the right style. But other than the fabric, take note of how visible the mechanical components are. Some products have unobscured frames, which can be an eyesore. If you choose SunShade for your patio and deck awnings, only the fabric is visible. This way, you can keep the awning’s refined visual character and style up to par with your outdoor spaces.
Retractable awnings usually work either with a switch or a remote. Wireless always beats manual control, except during power outages when the former might not work. If you don’t mind operating your awnings the old-fashioned way, then settling with a switch is the way to go.
But why pick one if you could get both? At ArmorGuard Exteriors, we can combine gears and let you operate your patio and deck canopy wirelessly and manually. In this case, you’d have a fallback should one fail to work.
Retractable awning installation can be one of the cheaper exterior improvements for your home, but it’s nonetheless an important addition. Pay attention to your canopy’s warranty to protect your investment for a long time and add more value for your money.
Compared to other products, your purchase with us comes with a powerful 10-year guarantee on the fabric and frames and comprehensive 5-year coverage on the motor. With proper maintenance, you can forget about any service expenses for the years to come.
