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 idea behind awning fabric quality cost savings for your Florida home or business shade solutions is simply pay more for something that lasts longer. Useful life can be measured in time yet our high quality retractable awnings offer savings in less obvious ways, too. Cost of ownership is lower over the long term when you avoid cheap imports and consider purchasing top quality patio, door, and window awnings.
Window and door awnings can reduce your energy costs. Technical evaluation by the ASHRAE American Society of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers concluded that the choice of awning fabric can reduce heat in your home or business. Their studies report using solution dyed acrylic fabrics on awnings can drastically save energy by lowering your electric bill.
Our custom retractable motorized or manual awnings are constructed with Sunbrella brand solution dyed acrylic and double stitched with Gortex thread. In addition to high quality awning fabric, we offer over 400 color choices in solids or stripes. Why buy a cheap product you have to repair or replace often? Our awning fabric materials are known to last up to 12-15 years, so consider the useful life and energy savings when ready to add new awnings to your Orlando area home or business.
Keep in mind we do awning sales, installation, and service in Orlando and the surrounding communities of Central Florida. Elsewhere in the USA we ship retractable awning kits for homeowners or commercial business to all 50 states. Have a contractor or handyman to do the installation? Visit our Florida awning website or contact us today to learn more about how to specify and order a retractable awning for your patio, doors, or windows.
Our custom retractable awnings are designed to withstand winds up to 150 mph coastal wind load which is important for our customers, especially in the Orlando and Central Florida area. Keeping your motorized awning retracted during a storm is still best for the life of the product, so here’s some advice for retractable awnings and high winds.
Most importantly, our advice is to roll in the awning each night and be aware of the weather at all times so the awning is primarily used under proper and normal weather conditions. When you’re away, nature may not cooperate, so there’s still protection when the awning encounters high winds.
Unlike cheap imported awnings, our retractable awning construction will withstand hurricane force winds to strict certified Florida standards. The high quality is appropriate outside of Florida, also, and we ship awning kits to all 50 states in the USA. If you are at home when a storm approaches, our advice is retracting the awning rather than test the hurricane rating.
Otherwise, we recommend an optional wind sensor system for your retractable awning to sense wind speed and automatically retract the awning to avoid potential high wind damage. Keep in mind the wind sensor operates on electricity, so an emergency backup generator would be needed in case of a power outage.
Call 407-345-9283 with any questions about retractable awning sales and installation in Orlando and the surrounding Central Florida communities, or custom residential or commercial retractable awning kits shipped anywhere in the USA.
In choosing a shade solution with retractable roll screens, homeowners have the option of retrofit or new construction screens for their home. View the photos below for an example of a motorized retractable screen for new construction.
We can work with you, the custom home builder, or your architect to design the perfect solution in manual or motorized roll shade screens.
This first photo (above left) shows archways leading to the pool and patio area of a new home construction project.
Note the slots for the screens in the vertical column and the header compartment at the top that holds the screen in the rolled up postion.
The next view (above right) is from the outside showing screens at each opening in different levels of being raised.
Looking from the outside you can still see the column slots yet the roll up compartment is hidden from view. Certainly it is more cost effective and aesthetically pleasing to have roll screens designed-in during the custom home construction planning phase.
However, our products are designed to retrofit in custom applications so that they look like part of the original plan.
Depending on the shape of the opening we will suggest the best option with the screen mounted inside, outside, or within the opening. Questions? Call for a prompt reply today!
When choosing high quality retractable awnings as a shade solution for your Orlando area home or business consider doing a manual and motorized awning comparison. If you’re buying cheap imports it may not matter. Cost of ownership when buying cheaper awnings may cost more over time once you factor replacement cost because poor quality doesn’t last.
Our awnings are not imports. The designs use premium materials, are made in the USA, and we offer your choice of manual or motorized versions of retractable awnings. The difference is slightly higher cost for motorized versions because of the motor and controls versus a simple hand crank to extend or retract the awning.
People choose motorized for ease of use, convenience, less physical work, and may prefer motorized awnings if they go through more frequent cycles between open and closed. Manual operation of our retractable awnings makes sense if they stay open for seasonal needs, and although not as convenient, manual versions only require average strength to extend or retract.
Keep in mind our awnings for your Orlando area home or business do not require vertical support posts so there’s less clutter to trip over or ruin your view. Finally, keep in mind our 150 mph coastal wind load approved awnings can withstand hurricane force winds to strict Florida State certified standards.
Manual or motorized? If you’re unsure when looking at quality retractable awnings from Roll Screen Solutions, call us and ask the experts. We service Orlando and Central Florida plus ship awning kits to all 50 states in the USA.
When you decide you need a shade solution and consider retractable awnings don’t give up if you don’t have an awning dealer nearby. The Roll Shade Awnings product line from Roll Screen Solutions is available as quality retractable awning kits.
We ship do-it-yourself awning kits anywhere in the USA. If you’re not comfortable with doing the installation, hire a handyman or contractor to do the work for you.
Why pay more and why choose us? From experience we meet awning owners who made the mistake of buying based on price only to find their awning was more expensive in the long run.
Imagine a poor quality import that falls apart in a year or so as frequent replacements drive up the cost of ownership. It makes sense to pay more for quality, and Roll Screen Solutions only sells top quality products.
Choose from motorized or manual retractable awnings, or call us for advice about your application. We offer residential and commercial quality awnings designed to meet 150 mph coastal wind load approval to survive extreme weather conditions.
