We offer manual or motorized awning options. When you opt for our motorized option, your awning is linked to a remote control or wall panel that allows you to make changes with the touch of a button. No power available? We also offer solar powered motors!

 Some of the benefits of motorized awnings:

  • Remote technology allows you to raise or lower your shades and awnings from anywhere in your home at any time, regardless of the weather or the time of day.
  • Allows you to easily open or close your awning, making it easy to keep your attention and focus on the tasks at hand or the guests you are entertaining without any interruption.
  • Motorized operation of awnings can also offer comfort to individuals who might otherwise have trouble with manual raising and lowering your awning. Those who are older, suffer from arthritis, have been injured, or simply have more limited mobility can greatly benefit from the comfort offered by remote operation of your awning.
  • Or if your one of those people who loves the newest technology and the ease of just pushing a button, a motorized shade is for you!

We are pleased to offer motorized retractable awning options. You can take a look at our products by browsing through our online galley, at our showroom or just give us a call at (509) 308.1354 & discuss your needs with our knowledgeable staff.
