Made in the Shade offers retractable awning patio covers for sun protection. When you extend the awning, your patio space is protected from the sun’s rays; and when you retract the awning, your patio is exposed to the sun. While there are many choices when it comes to patio covering materials, such as wood, glass, plastics, or metal, these permanent solutions do not always block out the sun’s harmful UV rays. Retractable awning patio covers from Made in the Shade Awnings provide protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays in the summer, and also allow the sun to heat your house in the winter by allowing direct sunlight into your home after they are retracted. Permanent structures do not allow for such a benefit in winter as they tend to offer varying amounts of sun mitigation year round. Retractable awning patio covers retract easily out of the way in winter and can be extended again when it heats up in the summer. Our retractable awning patio covers are amazingly affordable and we offer many different sizes, options, and fabrics to suit just about any budget. We offer motorized awning patio covers as well as manually operated awning patio covers. Made in the Shade offers awning patio covers for commercial, industrial and residential applications.
