Install a retractable awning and go from sun to shade
A retractable awning is an excellent way to enhance the appearance of your home, lending it style and ambiance. It also allows you to enjoy your patio regardless of the weather or the season (except in winter). Over the last few years, retractable awnings have enjoyed growing popularity in Quebec.
JML offers you a vast range of premium manual retractable awnings (equipped with a crank) and motorized retractable awnings (equipped with a remote-controlled electric motor). You can also choose from a variety of optional features, including adjustable tilt, a wind detector and a protective cover for winter.
Should you choose a manual retractable awning or a motorized retractable awning?
When you opt for a motorized retractable awning, you’re opting for practicality and effortless operation! All you have to do is push a button on the remote control to open or close your awning or to stop it at whatever position you wish. However, it will be a little more expensive than a manual retractable awning, which is also a very popular choice among our clientele!
The retractable awnings offered at JML
At JML, we rely exclusively on two trusted major suppliers so we can guarantee you superior-quality retractable awnings. For your added convenience, all of our installations are performed by renovation experts.
Our Canadian manufacturer, Aristocrat, with 35 years of experience, offers a variety of models, including a 7′ x 23′ awning that extends up to 13’2″ from the wall. The patented Marcesa product is the only one on the market with a crossbar offering additional reinforcement at the center of the awning, supporting the canvas at its midpoint, thus minimizing fluttering and flapping caused by the wind.
Our other supplier, STOBAG, the Canadian affiliate of a European giant, goes even further by offering a range of awnings that can extend as far as 23′ from the wall.
You can also choose from a selection of acrylic fabrics from major brands like Sattler, Sunbrella and Dickson. All of these fabrics have been treated to resist UV radiation, mold and mildew, rot and fading.
The advantages of adjustable awnings are numerous:
- They offer excellent protection from the sun, heat, rain, wind and UV radiation, creating a place that’s cool and relaxing so you can enjoy your outdoor space to the fullest.
- They’re easy to maintain.
- They’re durable with a useful life of 15 years or more.
- They provide you with added privacy by shielding you from prying eyes.
The flexibility offered by retractable awnings makes them appealing to a wide variety of clients: homeowners, renters, condominiums, apartment buildings, restaurants, businesses and industries of every kind.
