Choose the Correct Awning Frame

As your motorized awning installer in Austin, we can attach a retractable awning to your home using metal frames (awning brackets). The correct awning brackets depend on the placement of your awning and can include:

  • Wall mounting brackets: Wall mounting brackets are versatile awning frames and the most popular style for bracket design.
  • Roof awning brackets: Roof awning brackets offer an alternative to wall placement, which is ideal for walls with a low height.
  • Bay awning brackets: If you have a bay window, we can attach an awning using bay brackets for excellent support.

Awning Motorization and Automation

Shading Texas is always adding new options to our retractable awnings. That’s why we give each one of our customers an easy to use remote control. Deploy your awning from the comfort of your patio chair.

Also, we work with Somfy myLink to let you control your awning from your mobile device. The myLink app can be installed on both Android and iOS devices. Your Shading Texas team will help you with the app and your remote so you know how to use them. Unfurling your new awning will be a breeze.

Wind Motion Sensor Included on All Retractable Awnings

A strong Austin wind can start blowing when you least expect it. Shading Texas wants to be sure your awning is protected when the winds get fierce. We include a wind motion sensor with all of our patio awnings at no extra cost to you! This helps keep your awning safe and undamaged.

Special sensors placed on the awning detect high wind speeds. If the sensor is triggered, the awning will retract into the home, keeping it safe from the high-speed wind. When the wind finally dies down, enjoy the outside again by redeploying your awning.

Awnings in Any Size for Any Austin Home

When dealing with awnings, many companies have to leave gaps and breaks in the fabric to manage large projects. This creates openings that let in the wind, sun, and other types of weather while you are outside. Instead of settling for patched-up awnings, close the gap with Shading Texas.

Our fabric awnings are the widest in Austin.

We have options that will leave you covered without a single seam or stitch. Working with Sunbrella has given us access to a vast range of extra-wide awnings that can also extend far outside of your home. Expand your living space and look out on your vista with complete comfort.

Highest Quality Texas Awnings With the Best Warranties

The fabric awnings that Shading Texas uses are rated the highest quality fabrics in not just Austin but the world. We stand behind our retractable fabric awnings and our craftsmanship. If one of our services fails, then we take it personally. That’s why we offer many different warranty options for our entire line.

Our world-class fabric awnings offer a 10 Year Warranty if they break or falter. Each awning that you get also comes with a lifetime warranty for the frame and arms. If the structure of your canvas awning breaks, we can cover it for you worry-free. We want to leave you covered.

Outdoor and Indoor Benefits of Retractable Awnings

Retractable awnings can create comfortable outdoor spaces all year long, and with a selection of fabrics to choose from, you’re sure to find a pattern that matches your home. Our awnings are convenient solutions for extending the living area of your home without the hassle of a remodel. They’re also simple to control using a tablet or smartphone. With a retractable awning designed to match your home and fit your space, you can retake control of your property and enjoy the outdoors as much as you like.

At Shading Texas, our retractable awnings offer the attractive, on-demand protection you’re looking for while delivering a range of additional benefits you can enjoy both inside and outside, including:

  • Savings on utility costs: When the summer sun is beating down on your home, your air conditioning system has to work overtime to lower the temperature. The more your AC system has to work to cool your home, the higher your utility bills will be at the end of the month. Fortunately, our selection of retractable awnings in Austin can provide a wide wall of shade across the side of your home, stopping the sun’s hot rays for a more comfortable environment — and a smaller utility bill.
  • Property protection: Our awnings will protect you from the elements, shielding your patio and furniture from the damaging effects of rain, hail and other severe weather. When the sun comes out, our retractable awnings block sunlight and ultraviolet rays to prevent fading and other sun damage, which will keep your grill, patio seating and other items looking like new. Inside your home, your wooden floors, curtains, upholstery and other valuables will gain shelter from the sun any time you extend your awning.
  • Family safety: Retractable patio awnings in Austin, Texas, are essential if you want to spend time outdoors during the summer months without putting yourself at risk. The sun’s ultraviolet rays are linked to a wide range of health concerns in humans and animals, ranging from a painful sunburn to long-term issues like skin cancer (melanoma). Our patio awnings in Austin can block all types of ultraviolet rays to keep you, your family and your pets safe and healthy any time of day.
  • Value for your home: A retractable awning will extend the square footage of your home and add value to your property by enhancing its aesthetic appeal. With our selection of fabrics from Sunbrella, you can choose from hundreds of colors to find one that matches the look of your home. With the right color fabric, a retractable awning is an aesthetically pleasing feature that prospective buyers will notice and appreciate. When it’s not in use, our awnings retract for concealment until they’re needed again.
