How Do Retractable Awnings Work?

How Do Retractable Awnings Work?

As midsummer approaches, longer days mean more time relaxing and entertaining on your patio or deck. However if your outdoor space is exposed to the sun and the elements, it might send you and your guests running for cover. If you’ve invested your time and money into creating an inviting outdoor space, but find yourself retreating to the indoors when it’s too hot or rainy, may be its time to consider a retractable awning.

This month, the building experts at C&C Building Supplies shed light on how retractable awnings work and why you should consider installing one.

Automatic & Gas Cylinder Awnings.
Automatic awnings are retracted automatically by a motor. Most models come with a remote control and in the event of a power outage, can be manually overridden. Telescopic arms with gas-filled cylinders are available and typically found in retractable awnings for smaller patios. These require a bit more maintenance as the mini gas tanks will need refilled and could occasionally leak. 

**None of our awnings have gas cylinders so please omit that part.

If you live in Western Pennsylvania, it’s hard to tell which way the wind will blow! On days of high heat or heavy rain, your uncovered deck or patio is most likely left unused.
