Do you have a deck or patio that is unusable nearly all summer due to scorching sun? Would you like to reclaim that outdoor living space and make it comfortable all year? How about adding a splash of color with a retractable deck awning or retractable patio awning???
Commonly referred to as a 'Sunsetter,' a retractable awning is a versatile and elegant solution to most sun shading problems. A retractable awning with Sattler or Sunbrella canvas shades both your deck or patio and your home from the sun's hottest rays, protecting you and your indoor furnishings from harmful UV Rays. In fact, the temperature under an awning is 15-20 degrees cooler than on a patio or deck without an awning. On cooler days, simply reel in the retractable awning to let the warm sun's rays in. When rainy weather threatens, your retractable awning is safely rolled-in against the house to avoid any damage. For homeowners in Florida's Tampa, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg area, retractable awnings from West Coast Awnings are the perfect solution to provide sun protection where and when you need it.
One of the best features of a Sunesta retractable awning is the wide variety of colors and patterns from which to choose; you can choose from over 190 different colors and patterns to match any home's design and decor. Commonly known as Sunbrella, our acrylic canvas fabric is woven from UV-resistant 100% solution-dyed acrylic fibers, that provide excellent water repellency while remaining breathable to allow hot air to rise through the retractable awning, keeping your outdoor patio or deck cool and comfortable even on the hottest summer days. This Sunbrella style fabric carries a 10-year warranty against fading, mold, rot, and mildew and is simply the best outdoor fabric available on the market today.
In addition to all those color options, there are plenty of frame color choices, too. Retractable awning frames from Sunesta provide a comprehensive warranty of up to 15 years, and have both motorized and manually operated options. Motorized Sunesta retractable awning frames can be operated via multi-channel wireless remote control, providing the ideal combination of luxury and convenience. These beautiful, rugged awnings are even available in four different models to fit any application and budget. With a retractable awning from West Coast Awnings, your outdoor living spaces will become the outdoor relaxation and recreation areas that you've always intended them to be.
Sunsetter is a brand name that many consumers are familiar with, but most don't know much about what makes the Sunsetter product different from ours. While the Sunsetter brand is "assembled" in the USA, its component parts are produced overseas in China where quality control and regulation are much less stringent. Our Sunesta brand retractable awnings are assembled in Jacksonville, Florida from United States and European components only. No part of our awnings is ever produced in China. Additionally, Sunsetter uses a 6-ounce acrylic fabric made by Sunbrella that is cheaper and has a shorter warranty than the industry standard 9-ounce Sunbrella canvas that we utilize at West Coast Awnings. Our fabric carries a 10 Year warranty that is not pro-rated which is double what Sunsetter offers for their fabric. For more information visit our Sunesta vs. Sunsetter page.
