Valley Window and Door sells custom retractable awnings that are fabricated in Canada of quality components and fabrics, at prices you can afford. Treat your family and home to sun when you want it, shade when you need it!

1. Protect Your Family From Sun and Rain

Installing a retractable awning over your deck or patio will provide valuable shade, and protect you and your family from up to 98% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. Reducing direct sunlight with an awning can decrease the temperature on your deck or patio by up to 20°F, thereby protecting your family’s health and enhancing your enjoyment of the outdoors. Your pets will love the shade, too!

2. Block Harmful UV Rays From Coming Indoors

A custom retractable awning will block the sun’s heat and harmful UV rays before they enter your house, cooling your home more efficiently than blinds or drapes. A window awning will also reduce glare on television and computer screens, and prevent fading of drapes, furnishings, carpets, flooring and other indoor and outdoor decor.

3. Reduce Your Energy Costs

A strategically installed awning will help you save money and reduce your carbon footprint. Often called the original air conditioner, a window awning can lower your energy costs by up to 25%. In winter, close your retractable awning to let the sun in so you can benefit from the extra warmth and light the sun provides.
