Successful Setup: Professional Installation Is Key for a Retractable Awning

When you find yourself wishing away the glare of the sultry sun, having beautiful retractable awnings installed on your home or business is an excellent way to enjoy the outdoors without having to worry about the downfalls of sun exposure. However, it’s important to remember that installing retractable awnings is not a DIY job. This is especially true of SummerSpace® retractable awnings, which can weigh up to 500 pounds.

The key to safe, long-term enjoyment of your awnings is a quality, professional installation. Specialized tools and knowledge are necessary to ensure the awning is properly secured to the structural framing and not just the surface siding. You can be assured of proper installation from SummerSpace’s network of professional dealers who offer Simple Shade Series, Pro Series, and Performance Series retractable awnings. 

Choose the Right Retractable Awning

Selecting the perfect awning for your home or business begins and ends with the incredible selection of quality retractable awnings from SummerSpace. Whether you’re looking for a retractable awning that is attached to the side of your home or business or one that is roof-mounted, the gorgeous, customized fabric and frame options at SummerSpace have got you covered. In addition to the awning model of your choice and fabric and frame colors, choose from a variety of mounting locations including wall mount, under soffit mount, and roof mount.

Contact Your Local SummerSpace Dealer for Order and Professional Installation

Next, contact your local SummerSpace awning dealer to evaluate your application and place an order. Whether you have a model and fabric already in mind, or you need professional help choosing the best option for your needs, our SummerSpace dealers are absolute pros at all things awning related. 

Once your order is received at SummerSpace, you can expect a quick eight-day factory turnaround process for shipment. Your local dealer will set up a convenient installation appointment with their retractable awning installation professionals. And while you are waiting, here are a few setup tips to think about.

Site Preparation Prior to Installation

Before the retractable awning is installed, the area should be prepped. All surfaces should be clean and free from debris and freshly painted if needed. If the retractable awning is being installed on an exterior wall, check for any existing structural features that may interfere with installation such as light fixtures or decorations. 

If using a motorized awning option, you will also need an electrical connection installed. Your dealer can walk you through the process for outlet placement and voltage requirements.

Retractable Awning Installation

When your retractable awning is received by the dealer, it’s time to get started on the installation. Your SummerSpace dealer’s crew will attach the awning securely in place. All connections will be fastened carefully using the proper brackets and hardware shipped with your order. Once it is installed, your crew will extend your awning, adjust the tilt to the right level of protection, and make sure the extension is exact. The only thing left to do is enjoy your awning completely.

The great thing is that all SummerSpace retractable awnings are designed to be durable year after year. Are you ready to find the awning that’s perfect for you? With leading features and options, it couldn’t be easier to successfully design your custom awning for your residential or commercial needs.
