Here’s some advice for making your choice of motorized or manual awnings when selecting a retractable awning for windows, doors, a patio, or lanai on your Florida home. Manual awnings are practical and recommended for small windows or doors in most cases.
However, advice may vary for larger windows, a patio, or lanai depending on the application and the type of customer when buying a retractable awning in the Orlando area of Central Florida.
We service residential and commercial clients, so automated may be preferred for a business to minimize labor costs operating the awning.
For commerical or residential applications a motorized retractable awning adds modest cost compared to the convenience of push button control to extend or retract your awning. This may seem inconsequential for healthy young adults. Operating a manual crank for an elderly or weak person may be difficult.
A retractable awning motor with controls will add as little as 25% to your total cost, so our advice is getting a motorized retractable awning as your budget allows or as your situation requires.
Finally, another option provides added convenience with a motorized retractable awning. Consider adding a wind sensor that will detect windy conditions while you are away from home and then retract your awning automatically. Contact our friendly sales staff if you have any doubt and need advice comparing your choice of motorized or manual awnings.

The high quality retractable screen products from Roll Screen Solutions are designed with top quality materials for years of use, yet like most products our screens are not rated indestructible.
While mishaps with your retractable screen may be suitable for America’s Funniest Home Videos, the damage may not be covered by warranty and could cost you for repair, replacement, and service.
Here are some retractable screen tips to extend the useful life of your retractable window, door, or patio screens to avoid bad things happening to good screens.
Children or pets may push on screens thinking the structure is solid when in fact they are not locked in place, and are designed so the magnet may release. To avoid damage a childproof gate may be appropriate for pets or toddlers. Retractable screens are not intended as a substitute for an enclosure or fence.
Bigger kids, and certainly adults, have been known to walk into glass sliding doors and are just as likely to walk into a retractable screen. If they do then the door is designed for the pull bar to release the magnet, yet significant damage may occur.
Decorative decals at eye level may help avoid this type of mishap, yet the real solution if keeping people mindful the retractable screen is there.
Finally, you may notice loose screens caused by a person or gust of wind so that the screen is off the track. Though rare, it could happen and keep in mind retractable screens are not connected at the top and bottom guides when your screen door is in use. Don’t try to force it back into place, but instead be careful as you fully retract the screen. It should reset itself back into the track.
Use this advice to avoid the cost of non-warranty bad things happening to good screens.
