Benefits of a Custom Retractable Awning from Sunesta 

Shade when you NEED it, Sun when you WANT it. — With a Sunesta Retractable Awning, you control the shade. Enjoy your outdoor living area more than ever with the convenience of total shade control. Extend and retract your Sunesta Awning with the turn of a handle or push of a button – it’s that simple. Your awning can be extended fully, partially, or retracted depending on the amount of shade you need or how much sun you want.

Block the Sun, Keep your View. — Our strong, streamlined designs eliminate the need for support poles, so our awnings block only the sun or light rain, and not your view. Maximize your usable shaded outdoor living space and your view with the addition of a Sunesta Retractable Awning to your home.

Beautify your Home. — Your home is one-of-a-kind and your awning should be too. That’s why we offer total customization so that each Sunesta is made to the distinct needs and style of each homeowner. And Sunesta Retractable Awnings don’t just add beauty and space to your home, they also add equity – your covered outdoor space increases living area and value.

Expand your Space. — Without protection, you can’t fully enjoy your outdoor living area. A Sunesta Retractable Awning allows you to expand your home’s livable area, effectively adding a customized outdoor room.
Control Room Brightness. — Unlike permanent patio awnings, roofs, and enclosures, Sunesta Awnings can be retracted during darker times of the day, or on cloudy days, to brighten the interior of your home naturally.
Protect Indoor Furnishings. — The sun’s UV rays can severely damage and fade furniture, carpet, upholstery, drapes and flooring. You can protect your valuable interior furnishings and prolong their life with a retractable awning from Sunesta.

Save on Your Utility Costs. — Our awnings help lower energy costs year-round. On warm days, extend your awning to block the sun from entering your home. Shading your interior will naturally cool your home and reduce air conditioning costs up to 25%. On cold days, you can retract your awning, allowing the sun to help heat your home. In snowy and stormy climates, your Sunesta Awning can be retracted, eliminating the need for expensive awning removal and reinstallation which are necessary for permanent-frame awnings.

Take a Photo and some Measurements to get a quick estimate

Finally, it’s time to get outside and take a photo and some basic measurements of the space you’d like to cover and send them to us so we can get you a price estimate immediately.

When taking your measurements, you don’t need to be perfect, just in the ballpark.  It is a good idea to make the awning a little larger than the area you want to cover since the sun will sneak under the awning at certain times of day! 

Here’s an example of what you should send to us:
