Shielding home furnishings from the sun on those hot Florida days can be a struggle. You’d like to keep the windows and curtains open to enjoy your view, but penetrating UV rays will wash out fabric and fade flooring and furniture over time. Not to mention that the heat of the sun can make your home hot and stuffy, rendering living space near large, beautiful windows and doors practically unusable.
The solution to both of these problems is a Sunesta retractable awning. Commonly referred to as a 'Sunsetter,' a retractable awning is a versatile and elegant solution to most sun shading problems. Extended out on sunny days, the awning shades your home from the sun's hottest rays, protecting furnishings and keeping a large proportion of that heat out. In fact, the temperature under an awning is 15-20 degrees cooler! On cooler days, simply retract the awning to let those warm rays in. And when severe weather threatens, your retractable awning is safely retracted 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.
Retractable Awnings & Roofs
Choose Durable Acryllic Canvas Fabric for your Retractable Awning.
One of the best features of a Sunesta retractable awning is that you can choose from over 190 different colors and patterns to match any home’s design and decor.
Commonly known as Sunbrella, this fabric is woven from UV-resistant 100% solution-dyed acrylic fibers, that provide excellent water repellence while remaining breathable to allow hot air to rise through the awning, keeping your outdoor patio or deck cool and comfortable even on the hottest summer days.
This Sunbrella 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 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 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 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.
