Why Are Retractable Awnings So Expensive?

Who among us hasn’t fallen for the QVC segment at 3 am, promising cookware that never sticks, can tolerate oven temps over 500 degrees, and practically cleans itself? Only to get that set for $99.99 and learn that it’s lower quality than what you’d find at the bargain store for $29.

That’s what many customers get when they think that quality retractable awnings are too expensive and opt for the cheapies all over TV. Cheap awnings don’t work as well, are self-installed (a true pain if you’re not an experienced DIYer), never look as good as they did in the ads, and usually fall apart rather quickly. Good luck getting service for an awning you paid so little for.

As you search for a higher-quality retractable awning, you may wonder why are retractable awnings so expensive? Enhancing your outdoor space with a retractable awning is an investment. At SummerSpace®, we are committed to providing our customers with premium retractable awnings at a fair price. Here are some of the qualities that make SummerSpace retractable awnings the top choice for your backyard needs. 

High-Quality Material

Not only are SummerSpace retractable awnings fully manufactured in the USA right in our own facilities in central Maine, but these awnings are also made with top-grade materials. This means you can purchase your retractable awning knowing the product will both look good and last well. Additionally, SummerSpace is a third-generation family owned and operated business. Our awnings are all made in our 400,000 square foot factory in Auburn, Maine. This allows us to control and ensure the quality of all of our products. We believe in the quality of our products so much that our awnings come with a 7-year motor warranty, 10-year fabric warranty, and 10- to 20-year frame warranty. This is unbeatable in the awning industry.

Intelligent Design

With a retractable awning from SummerSpace, you get unique craftsmanship and intelligent design. These awnings are designed with both aesthetics and function in mind. To name a few, our patented articulating shoulder allows you to control the pitch, providing the ideal angle for shade. The front bar is uniquely designed to create a beautiful, seamless look. And, the SummerShieldTM powder coating on our frames protects against cracking and antimicrobial growth, as well as UV inhibitors. These are a few of the many ways SummerShield’s high quality design makes your awning both simple to use, reliably efficient, and beautiful in the process. 

Custom Fit 

With our Pro Series and Performance Serie, you can custom fit your awning by the inch up to 24-26 feet. This means no matter the size you need, your retractable awning will fit perfectly. With a custom fit, your awning will create an ideal look with thorough functionality. 

Simple to Use

At SummerSpace, our retractable awnings are made with simplicity in mind. The automatic function is fast and simple to use. With the push of a button, you get sun when you want and shade when you don’t. In addition to being simple and fast, the automatic function is quiet to prevent unwanted disturbances.

So, if you’re wondering why are retractable awnings so expensive, it’s because smart designs, quality materials, and careful American manufacturing means a better product that works well, looks great, and lasts a very long time.
