But... The Dirty Little Secrets.
Retractable Awnings are GREAT for protection from the sun. That's it. Anyone that tells you that a retractable awning can be used in the rain is misrepresenting what they are selling and here is why: Lateral arm retractable awnings are not designed for inclement weather. Damages caused by weather related events are not covered under your warranty. Many "awning companies" in Charlote are selling CHINESE units with CHINESE motors and 100s of CHINESE moving parts. Some of these companies don't even have a shop - just a guy with a truck selling awnings out of his garage. Because we only sell American Made products, we are not the cheapest outfit out there. We don't want to be. Some things we just won't compromise on. The best things are made in the USA and so are our retractable Awnings by Rainier.
Believe it or not, some retractable awnings still come with thread that will rot out in a few years. Using a PTFE thread on a spring loaded retractable could prevent a serious injury.
