Factors to Consider When Choosing a Patio Awning

What Size Shade Awning Do I Need?
The size of your awning or canopy is crucial to its effectiveness. Our Sunesta professionals will expertly measure your space to ensure your new retractable outdoor awning will provide the perfect shade. For large patios or outdoor dining areas, a spacious retractable patio awning can create a shady environment and reduce the ambient temperature for optimal comfort.

Beautiful and Hard-Working Materials
Sunesta’s retractable awnings and canopies are made from high-quality, durable materials designed and tested to withstand various weather conditions. Our retractable patio awnings were the first in the nation to exceed the strict standards of Miami-Dade County and Florida Building Codes. We are also proud that the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends our awning fabric as effective protection from the sun’s damaging UV rays.

Motorized Retractable Awnings
Modern convenience meets outdoor living with Sunesta’s remote-controlled retractable awnings option. This extra feature allows you to extend or retract your shade with the push of a button, providing ease of use and flexibility. If you value convenience and accessibility, our motorized retractable awnings are an excellent choice.

Tips for Selecting Your Retractable Outdoor Awning

Choosing the right awning or canopy involves matching its features to your needs. Here are some tips to help you make the best choice:

Identify Your Primary Use
Are you looking to create a shaded outdoor dining area? A patio shade canopy or retractable shade canopy can provide the perfect solution.
Or, are you looking to protect your windows from the sun while boosting your home’s curb appeal? Consider installing a stylish window canopy. Not only can it block the sun and cool the temperature inside, but it also adds an elegant touch to your exterior.

Consider Aesthetic Preferences
Sunesta offers the industry’s largest selection of awning fabrics in a wide range of colors, patterns, and styles to match your home’s exterior and your taste. Choose a design that complements your existing décor to enhance your property’s overall look and value.

Evaluate Sun and Weather Exposure
Assess the amount of sun and weather exposure your outdoor space receives. If your patio gets full sun throughout the day, a retractable sun shade or shade awning can help keep the area cool and comfortable. For areas that experience variable weather, a retractable outdoor awning also offers the flexibility to adjust your shade as needed.
