Frequently Asked Questions

How long do retractable awnings last?

The amount of use and climate will determine how long motorized awnings will last. The rugged, heavy-duty frame and hardware can last beyond 15 years. With basic care, routine maintenance, and cleaning, your retractable cover will provide years of trouble-free, reliable service.

We recommend motorizing the retractable awnings for year-round use to maximize fabric life and overall durability. The motorized option allows the flexibility to close or open your motorized retractable awning to meet your needs. Patio awnings are motorized for full-time use to open and close based on your preference.

Is a manual or motorized awning better?

It all depends on personal preference, but generally, motorized control is essential if your awning is sixteen feet or bigger or if you have any physical restrictions. Manually operated covers require an awning smaller than twelve feet.


Our models all come with motorized controls to fully integrate home automation systems for easy operation of your motorized retractable awning. We can help you get set up on any of these systems, or you can use your smartphone to run the motorized retractable awning with any smart home system.

Can retractable awnings be used in the rain?

Retractable awnings are designed for sun protection and light rain. Retractable awnings have been used in light rain all over the world for over 100 years. The key to using a retractable awning safely in the rain is to maintain a minimum proper slope or pitch that will allow water to run off the retractable awning without pooling on the fabric cover or possibly causing the lateral arm to fail.

The warranty does not cover damage from rain, so the decision to extend or retract an awning in the rain is a question of responsible judgment and the homeowners' discretion. If an awning is opened during a storm, monitor it carefully for water saturation and weight on the lateral arm. If the wet fabric is left unattended, it could stretch after time and create an uneven look to your motorized awning.

How are retractable awnings attached to houses?

There are a few different methods an awning can be attached to any structure. Since each unit is custom-built, the installation will also be custom. Professional installers will determine the correct installation for your particular needs. Wall mounts, soffit mounts, and roof mounts are examples of the different mounting brackets used to support the lateral arm, and location determines which mount is best suited for your individual needs.

The motor for motorized awnings can be installed inside your garage or outside next to the motor box. An AC transformer is required for all motorized models if not located in an AC power zone, including garages alongside the house. We are experts at helping homeowners integrate their motorized retractable awnings into their home automation systems to create the perfect motorized shade solution for your space.
