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.

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?
