It is finally Spring, which means it’s time to set up the patio furniture and prepare to enjoy your outdoor space in the coming months. As you arrange the chairs, grill, and potted plants on your patio or deck, we have a perfect accessory that can also be rolled out for summer, quite easily! This accessory is a retractable awning, and now is a great time to install one on your home.
An awning is a fabric canopy extending over an outside area such as a patio, deck, or balcony to supply shade. It is supported with a metal frame attached to the house. A retractable awning can be pulled back when not in use and folds up compactly against the house. What is especially appealing about modern awnings is that they are motorized, allowing you the ease of flipping a switch and watching your awning roll out. Gone are the days of trying to open and arrange a heavy manual unit where you often need someone to help you. Now, if you are relaxing at home with a bit of time to yourself, you can push a button on a wall-mounted switch or a hand-held remote and be sitting in the shade at a moment’s notice.
Joe Wilde Company is proud to be a dedicated Sunesta dealer and backs their industry-leading quality. The retractable patio awnings come in three styles: Sunesta, Sunstyle, and Sunlight. The three styles have different sizes and capabilities to fit your unique outdoor space. Each Sunesta awning installed by Joe Wilde Company comes with a Lifetime Frame Warranty, a 10 Year Fabric Warranty, a 5 Year Motor Warranty, Smart Features PVC Protected Arm Cables. There are hundreds of fabrics to choose from and up to four frame colors. Sunesta’s retractable awnings have passed the Miami-Dade County Hurricane Testing. While this certification may not seem relevant to life in Wisconsin, it means that the awning can withstand 40 mph winds while it is fully projected out.
The largest awning models, Sunesta and Sunstyle have projections of 14’8,” and 11’6″ respectively and are custom made to the inch up to 40′ wide. Each comes with numerous standard features and has optional features such as dimmable lights, a front bar drop valance for low sun protection, and wireless remote control. The smaller Sunlight model offers a 10′ projection and is custom made to the inch up to 24′ wide. An optional feature on the Sunlight is an adjustable arm to provide low sun protection.
