As we begin the fall season and set our clocks back, we suddenly find it getting dark much earlier, and find ourselves spending less time outdoors. We also are faced with new challenges when managing household energy costs as we switch from air conditioning to heat.

Retractable canvas awnings are one of the most popular awning styles for the home, and are a great way to reduce energy costs year round. Our team of shade specialists at Maple Leaf Awning and Canvas are a phone call away, and are ready to show you all the the benefits of a custom retractable canvas awning, which include reducing indoor temperatures by as much as 15 degrees in the summer, and taking advantage of sunlight in the winter.

Retractable awnings are stylish, functional, and maintenance-free. All of our awnings are available in hundreds of colors and patterns. We exclusively use high quality Sunbrella fabric, which offers the highest industry ratings for water-resistance, and received a 98% UV stoppage rating from the Skin Cancer Foundation. Also, If you provide us a photograph of your home, we can sit down with you and use our Awning Composer software to show you exactly how your awning will look once it’s installed.

Once installed, setting up your retractable awning is quick and easy, and all it takes is the push of a button. We also offer automatic sensors that can set up or retract your awning in response to heavy sunlight or gusting winds. Enjoy your time in the shade, and once the party’s over, all you have to do is push the button again to put your awning away, and it will be ready the next time that you need it.
