Outdoor Enjoyment - The average temperature under a large recreational awning is 20 degrees lower than that of the surrounding area.  Awnings can keep out rain and other precipitation, which would normally ruin a party or gathering on a deck or patio.  People who are especially susceptible to sunburns can find being in the sun for too long uncomfortable and unhealthy. Retractable awnings can allow them to enjoy outdoor leisure.
 
Protection - If your deck or patio is connected to your home by large, sliding-glass doors, you understand that such doors can cause the temperature in that part of your house to rise. Retractable awnings can protect your windows from heating up your home.  These awnings block ultraviolet light and keep you from accumulating sun damage that can lead to skin cancer.  Retractable awnings block only the sun and will not obscure your view of your yard. There are no braces or poles to further get between you and your view.
Your furniture will be better protected form the elements, including fading in the sun and water damage.
 
Other Benefits - Retractable awnings can be custom-made to be longer than they are wide or wider than they are long. If you have a very long porch or a deck that protrudes into your yard, awnings can offer sun protection.  Awnings can be used for businesses, such as cafes or shops right along sidewalks.  Your awnings can be used over almost any outdoor area, including patios, decks, balconies, pool sides, terraces and even parts of docks on waterfront or lakefront property.

An improperly adjusted garage door or automatic opener can exert deadly force when the door closes.
