Years ago my father gave me my first job installing and repairing awnings, and decades later I have witnessed leaps in technology, advancements in materials, rotary mechanisms, and vastly improved installation procedures. Along with a fair share of sub-standard equipment too. Over the years I’ve come to rely on certain retractable awning brands, while avoiding others. With so many friends and do-it-yourselfers needing advice on the best and worst in brand name awnings, I decided to put together this blog to help others benefit from my experience.
In recent years, retractable awnings have become a huge phenomenon. A colorful accent is one of the first things that people notice about your home’s appearance. It’s no mystery that a retractable awning makes a home look better: stylish, more attractive, and more inviting. This is why home-owners all over America are now opting for installing retractable awnings to improve home’s look as well as expand their outdoor space and reduce energy costs.
Although awnings are very popular, many people have a hard time grasping the wide array of different products, options and installation related procedures that are now available. Today, there are dozens of manufacturers that all claim superior quality and easy, self or professional installation. But results can range from beautiful to disappointing, or even disastrous (if you’ve selected a fraudulent product.)
In an unfamiliar world with so many manufacturers’ claims, people have a difficult time selecting the right retractable awning for them. That’s why it is important to get the right information before you make a major purchase decision. There is a lot of confusion about which products to use, which are worth the price, whether or not you should seek a professional installer or install it yourself – and what, if any, care is needed to maintain your awning system.
Here, at Retractable Awning Review.com, you’ll find useful, unbiased product and brand reviews, articles and opinions from homeowners and awning experts about the products, installation techniques, and useful tips.
