Beat the Heat with a New Awning

Rising temperatures and longer days means summer is officially in full swing! Sunbrella is here to help make your outdoor space feel like an oasis.​ With an awning made with Sunbrella fabrics, you can enjoy the convenience of having a space where you can take a break from the sun—or retract it at night for a view of the stars. ​

Creating A Porch-Like Retreat​ 
Part of building your dream backyard is making sure you have a place to escape the hot summer days by cooling off in the shade. With a Sunbrella awning, you can create a porch-like retreat that is the perfectly comfortable for enjoying a cocktail or taking a nap—all while being protected from the sun. ​ 
With a retractable awning, you can choose to protect yourself from the heat of the sun or retract it to catch some rays. The possibilities are endless in your own backyard! 
While awnings protect you and make you feel comfortable, you can’t forget the attractiveness factor. Watch your resale value go up after creating your very own shaded oasis.
