Many people that buy a motorized retractable awning want it because they can expand their outdoor living space with the touch of a button and many people put them over their windows for shade control and energy savings. Because the awning is retractable through a motorized unit it can easily be let out or put away with the touch of a button by a single person instead of several people working in coordination to manually open and close a non-motorized retractable awning over their patio. Of course some people love a motorized retractable awning because they don t want to permanently attach a non-retractable sun faded canvas awning that detracts from their home s exterior. The newer brands of motorized retractable awnings use strong waterproof woven acrylic that doesn t fade.
