Why and where to use retractable awnings in Charlotte?

Retractable awnings are great in Charlotte if you are trying to create affordable shade and keep the sun’s ultraviolet rays from fading your furniture. We have found the Craftbilt awning to be of high quality and great value! The fabric selection is huge and comes with a best in class warranty. The retractable awning can come with a remote control and even a wind sensor that will make the awning retract in windy or stormy weather to insure it does not get harmed. In Charlotte, we have sun almost every day and not everyone can afford a screen porch or roof structure. Retractable awnigns are perfect if you have a flat area with no variation in the area where you want to mount it such as a chimney bumpout. The retractable awnings are custom built to fit the size you want and are professionally installed!

Covered Pergolas over deck and patios in Charlotte

What is the use of a pergola? We get asked that all of the time when we are consulting homeowners on different design options for the backyards! One of the more aesthetically pleasing ways to cover a deck or patio is with a pergola. Pergolas can provide great shade with or without a fabric cover. By spacing the wood closer, pergolas actually block out quite a bit of sun and keep you cooler. If our customers wants total sun blockage, we can install a weather proof attractive fabric that goes on rollers below the ceiling rafters of the pergola. There are many desing options for pergolas that one should consider. The width and height of the columns, the cuts on the ends of the rafters, the decorative detail on the top and bottom of the posts all play a part in making your pergola more fitting for your home. There are also material choices that come into play that really drive the cost up or down depending on low maintenance materials or the type of wood selected for the project.
