SunSetter, America’s number one selling awning manufacturer, has been providing quality and style since 1988! Offering customizable awnings for your deck, patio, windows and doors, SunSetter awnings offer you choices of style, color, and manual or electric retracting awnings that add style and functionality to your home or business.
Reasons to Install an Awning
One of the biggest reasons to install an awning is the ability to enjoy the outdoors while being protected from the elements. They also add energy efficiency and a bit of character to your home. A quality awning will protect the windows and entries of your home from the full onslaught of the weather—sun, rain, sleet, or snow. When you install a SunSetter retractable awning, it will eventually pay for itself over time with the amount of money you can save on energy bills.
Benefits of Installing a SunSetter Awning
Southern facing windows, decks, patios, and doors are wonderful in the winter months, as they allow the sun to keep your home warm through thermal gain. The summer months, though can raise the temperature in your home, increasing your utility bills. The beauty of a SunSetter awning over your windows or decks is that you can unfurl or retract them according to your needs.
An uncovered deck or patio will become more usable year round with an awning and a retractable awning adds even more versatility. You can cover your porch or patio when you choose, or open it to the sun’s warm glow. When equipped with motorized retractors you can extend or retract your awning from inside your home.
A covered patio or deck will add to the usable living space of your home and will extend the use of your outside living space. By having this area of your home covered, you can add seating that is protected from the sun and the rain.
Well-Constructed SunSetter Awnings
The fabric used in the construction of a SunSetter awning comes in a choice of two fabrics, both giving almost total protection from ultraviolet rays. Your SunSetter awning will be created using a 100 percent solution-dyed, water-repellent acrylic fabric with a wonderful woven texture—in fact, this is the same superb quality fabric you’d find on a custom-made awning, without the custom price tag! The awning is constructed with a lateral arm style so that there are no vertical poles to get in the way. Awnings are available with manual crank or electric motorized retractors that can be operated with the touch of a button.
SunSetter window awnings are equally easy to use as patio awnings and allow for adjustment from inside your home. Unlike fixed window awnings, SunSetter window awnings give you the option to shade a window completely or to retract the awning fully so that the sun can shine in. This allows you to let light in during the winter to help heat your home and shade your window from the sun during summer.
