Installing a retractable awning, patio screen or outdoor shade can instantly add additional living space to any home, effectively transforming an outside area into an enjoyable, usable room. They provide shade and cover from rain and sun, giving homeowners the freedom to enjoy their outside space even in weather that would normally force them inside. When not in use, retractable awnings and screens conveniently tuck against your home until you’re ready to use them again.
There are two main options for operating a retractable addition: a simple and affordable manual hand crank, or a convenient electric motor. While an electric system is an advantageous option, it comes at a higher cost due to the required installation of a motor and electrical wiring.
Luckily, there’s finally an efficient, cost-effective and almost effortless way to harness the power of electricity for your retractable awning.
