Cut energy use, save money

Adding one or more awnings to your home can have surprising benefits when it comes to cutting back on your home’s energy bills. When it’s hot out, fabric awnings block the sun’s rays, reducing your dependence on air conditioning. In fact, studies show that an awning can reduce heat gain from the sun by up to 77 percent. In cooler months, retractable awnings let you take advantage of the sun’s natural warmth, which can help you reduce your heating bills and save energy.


Sunbrella awning fabrics available through your local awning dealer. Outdoor furniture featuring Sunbrella fabrics is available at your favorite patio shop or through many catalog sources. Throws available through Textillery.



Roller shades

Vinyl awnings

There is one thing for sure about vinyl, it is quite durable, weathers well and is relatively inexpensive.  If you are looking for a inexpensive alternative for your garden or patio space, then purchasing vinyl awnings are a good choice.  What are your other alternatives?  Well, you could build a patio cover, but that will require much more time or money to construct.  It will also be a more permanent solution to what may be a more temporary shade need you are after.  Additional options could include natural shade from trees or climbing vines and other plants. Other options include shade sails and canopy choices that are also more permanent, but have less in the way of a visual presence on the ground. These products are installed on posts or to anchor points on rigid structures of your home or other patio features, thus, freeing up the ground space.
While vinyl is descriptive of the material, it is more than this. There are a wide variety of awning styles, most of which are made of vinyl.  However, you can find exterior shutters that are made of bamboo, canvas, or other wood products. Let’s not forget about the fact that with a fabric awning like vinyl, you can also have them roll up and stow away when not in use.
Why vinyl makes such a great choice for garden awnings is that it is both flexible and durable.  It can be washed with a simple mild detergent and hosed off.  This makes them quite durable to resist the effects of the weather and also from dirt and grime.  Many newer awnings are also able to better resist the effects of the UV light on the fabric as well.  The newer vinyl awnings can last longer.


canopy is an overhead roof or else a structure over which a fabric or metal covering is attached, able to provide shadeor shelter. A canopy can also be a tent, generally without a floor. The word comes from the Ancient Greek κωνώπειον = “cover to keep insects off”, from κώνωψ = “cone-face”, which is a bahuvrihi compound meaning “mosquito”. The first ‘o’ changing into ‘a’ may be due to influence from the place name Canopus, Egypt thought of as a place of luxuries.

Architectural canopies include projections giving protection from the weather, or merely decoration. Such canopies are supported by the building to which they are attached and often also by a ground mounting provided by not less than twostanchions, or upright support posts.

Canopies can also stand alone, such as a fabric covered gazebo or cabana. Fabric canopies can meet various design needs. Many modern fabrics are long-lasting, bright, easily cleaned, strong and flame-retardant. Modern frame materials offer high strength-to-weight ratios and corrosion resistance. The proper combination of these properties can result in safe, strong, economical and attractive products.

Retractable Awnings

Retractable Awnings are now becoming very popular with homeowners in the United States. They have been popular in Europe for many years, due to higher energy costs and lack of air conditioning. Retractable Awnings can include the following types:

Lateral Arm Awnings

These are a modern version of the old storefront crank-up awnings of the last century. Tension arms and a roller bar are supported by a torsion bar. The torsion bar fits into wall or soffit brackets that spread the load to the width of the wall. Hand-cranked awnings are still available, but motorized awnings are now most common. The motor is inside the roller tube. Many motors now have a built-in receiver and are operated by remote control or home automation. Lateral arm awnings are also known as deck or patio awnings, as they can extend as far ast 18 feet and be as long as 30 feet or more – thus covering a large outdoor space.

Side or Drop Arm Awnings

Commonly used to shade a window, with a roller tube at the top, spring-loaded side arms, and a motor, crank or tape-pull operator. Awnings with sides are commonly known as Traditional Style Awnings as they have been used for many years dating back to the early 19th Century using cotton canvas fabric. The Traditional Style Awnings are appropriate for historical buildings and are still popular today using a more weather resistant fabric such as a solution dyed acrylic fabric such as Sunbrella Fabric and a rope and pulley system for retracting the awnings. Awnings without sides do not provide as much sun protection as those with sides. Awnings without sides come in many different styles. Drop Arm Awnings without sides come with roller tubes at the top and are available with motors and wind sensors for automatic retraction. Spear Awnings are made without sides and are made with Wrought Iron Frames and they can be retracted with a rope and pulley system but are not available with motors.

Awnings with sides provide the best sun protection for east and west facing windows. North and South facing windows can be protected from the sun with awnings without sides. Awnings provide shade keeping your house cooler, awnings are also great shade creators around porches, decks and patios.

Solar Shade Screens

Shade screens utilize acrylic canvas or a mesh fabric, which allows some view-thru while blocking the sun’s rays. The roller at the top may be hand-cranked or motorized. The fabric is gravity-fed, with a weighted bottom rail pulling the fabric down between guide rails or guy wires. Exterior shades are much more effective at blocking heat than interior shades, since they block the heat before it enters the glass. This style of framed screens is typically done by professional installers, because of the specialized frames and tools required.

Propulsion Awnings

Today’s awnings come in two basic types: Manually operated models which are opened by hand and motorized models which operate by electricity. Each offers its own advantages. Benefits include low-cost affordability, easy adaptability to almost any deck or patio, and support arms that can be angled back against the house or set vertically on the deck or patio floor. These arms provide extra support and stability which some owners prefer in windy areas, and increase the awning’s versatility by making the attachment of certain accessories available.

Motorized awnings have no vertical supports. Instead, they have retracting lateral arms, creating an unobstructed shaded area. These awnings are operated by an electric motor, generally hidden inside the roller bar of the awning. The arms open and close the awning at the touch of a wireless remote control or a wall-mounted switch.

Modern awnings may be constructed with covers of various types of fabrics, aluminium, corrugated fibreglass, corrugated polycarbonate or other materials. High winds can cause damage to an extended awning, and newer designs incorporate a wind sensor for automatic retraction in certain conditions.

Benefits of Awnings

Retractable awnings let owners control the weather on their own terms. When passing showers threaten, or when the sun gets hot, they or the home automation system unroll the awning for near-instant protection and shade. Lab test measurements show that it can be as much as 20 degrees cooler under an awning’s canopy. Because awnings prevent the sun from shining through windows and sliding glass doors, they can keep temperatures inside cooler as well, which saves on air-conditioning costs. They can help prevent carpets and furniture from fading in sunlight. Awnings also provide a sheltered place for children and pets to play, shielded from direct sun.

Some of today’s awnings also offer accessories that can greatly increase the versatility and usefulness owners get from their decks or patios. A screen room add-on can easily turn an awning into a virtually bug-free outdoor room, side screening cuts down on wind and mist coming under the sides of awnings, and patio lights let people enjoy their decks evenings and nights.

It also can be used to cover the thermal solar panels in the summer.

Operable awnings

In the second half of the 19th century, manufactured operable awnings grew in popularity. Previously, most awnings had fixed frames-the primary way to retract the covering was to roll it up the rafters by hand. Operable systems for both storefront and window awnings had extension arms that were hinged where they joined the facade. The arms were lowered to project the awning or raised to retract the awning using simple rope and pulley arrangements. Because the canvas remained attached to the framework, retractable awnings allowed a more flexible approach to shading (shopkeepers and owners could incrementally adjust the amount of awning coverage depending upon the weather conditions). When the sun came out from behind clouds, the awning could be deployed with ease. In case of sudden storms, owners could quickly retract the awning against the building wall where it was protected from wind gusts.

But the early operable awnings had their own drawbacks. When retracted, the coverings on early operable awnings bunched up against the building facade where it was still partially exposed to inclement weather (in fact, deterioration was often accelerated as moisture pooled in the fabric folds). Also, the retracted fabric often obscured a portion of the window or door opening and unless it was folded carefully, presented an unkempt appearance. Modern materials and designs have eliminated these issues, and are also known as retractable awnings.
