Sometimes that’s easier said then done, though… because of the heat! If you weren’t able to spend much time on your deck last year because of the blistering sun and unbearable temperatures, it’s time to make a change! We have the perfect solution… retractable awnings from Lonestar!

Retractable awnings are a great way to enjoy your deck and outdoor area, even during the hottest days of summer. We know summer’s not here yet… but it’s coming! We’re writing this blog today because, if you want the awning before the hottest days of the year, now is the time to get a quote!

Retractable Awnings From Lonestar Siding and Windows

Retractable AwningsLonestar exclusively installs Aristocrat Awnings by Craftbilt. Every retractable awning we install is custom made for your deck or outdoor area. If you know our business, you know that “cookie cutter” is not a term in our vocabulary. We find it critical to accurately measure and consider every angle on your deck. No two decks or outdoor spaces are the exact same, and neither are the retractable awnings we install!

The awning material is custom made from extremely durable fabric that provides shade for years and years! This fabric resists sun bleaching, and is guaranteed against rot and mildew. We stand behind every retractable awning with a 12 year warranty, along with a lifetime warranty for the frame itself. There are hundreds of colors and styles to choose from. You’ll have no trouble finding a pattern that perfectly matches your home and style.

When deployed, the awning provides comfortable shade and a beautiful aesthetic. When retracted, the awning rests within an aluminum housing that further protects the fabric. This housing is mounted discreetly on your home and can be painted to blend in seamlessly.

We highly recommend you retract your awning during inclement weather. High winds, heavy rain, and falling debris can be extremely damaging to awnings. With larger awnings the problem is magnified. If you see dark clouds on the horizon or if the local TV station is predicting bad weather, retract your awning ASAP!

Retracting your awning is simple! Just crank the hand wheel until it is safely tucked into the aluminum housing.

Motorized Options Available!

With our motorized awnings, all you need to do is push one button. Once actuated, your awning will automatically deploy or retract. It’s that easy! If, for some reason, you can’t make it home in time to push the button, no worries! We have an app that allows you to retract or deploy your awning remotely!

We offer a 5 year manufacturer’s warranty on motorized awnings.

    My family and I just moved to a very warm location, so we are always looking for ways to beat the heat. I like how you point out here that retractable awnings are made out of durable materials that will last a long time and provide comfortable shade. I have heard that aluminum awnings are also a good option so I wonder if they can retract as well. Thanks for this information!
