But you can get too much of a good thing. All that sunshine can be brutal, making your deck hot, not to mention the damage the UV rays cause to your skin. But in small doses, sunshine can feel good, and in winter, you want your home to get as much sun as possible.

Fortunately, retractable awnings allow you to have the best of both worlds.

Benefits of Retractable Awnings

At the push of a button, your sunny patio is shielded with a beautiful awning that protects you from the rain and sun. These can keep you 20 degrees cooler and provide 98% UV protection.

Another benefit to retractable awnings is that they can help reduce your energy consumption. Since they shield so much heat from your yard, they also prevent heat from getting inside your home.
