Designed to make you and your deck so cool, the Joneses will be trying to keep up with you!

Our retractable patio awnings provide shade with the touch of a button. You’ll spend more time outdoors and get more use of your patio!

We know that the awnings of yesteryear were never exactly a fashionable accessory for your home. So when we started building our Rainier Retractable Awnings, we asked ourselves: “how do we make something that keeps you cool – and looks cool at the same time?”

Our solution was to make the awning DISAPPEAR and blend into the house like a fine architectural detail or accent. Magic! We are magicians of minimalism and our sleek and modern retractable awning system is our finest trick.

In order to build this magical shade system, it became obvious that we needed to design and manufacture the entire awning system from scratch. We control the manufacturing process of every awning we build, unlike our competitors who buy and assemble parts.

Building the entire system in house gives us the freedom to create the best shading system available on the market today – and you’ll reap the benefits. Simply put, our awnings create the best shade.

When it’s extended, it keeps you cool. When it’s retracted, it vanishes. Now you see it — now you don’t!

A Welcome Addition

Retractable_Awning_StripesMore usable outdoor living space… Whenever you need it.

Add an awning to your patio or deck to extend the use of your outdoor living space, without extensive remodeling – or the headache that comes with it.

We offer three options – wall mount, under soffit, or above the gutter installation, so our awning systems can be installed almost anywhere.

We build every awning to order, custom sized to meet your exact specifications. Available up to 40′ wide (in 1/4″ increments) with four projection options, ranging from 7’-6” to 12’-0”.


Protection from the Sun’s Harmful UV Rays

Designed to keep you and your family safe from the sun’s harmful rays, and keep UV rays from fading your valuable furnishings.

Retractable patio awnings are also an efficient way to cool a home, reducing your reliance on traditional air conditioning. Research has shown that shading from an awning can reduce cooling costs up to 60%.


Stay Cool and in Control

Somfy_RemoteShade at the push of a button. Your remote control for the sun.

An intelligent motor comes standard on our window awning products, so you don’t have to manually raise and lower the awning. We feature motors and remote controls manufactured by Somfy, the world leader in tubular motors.

We’ve found that homeowners who purchase a motorized screen system are more satisfied with their purchase than those who don’t.

Remote control technology makes using your screen convenient, and you will be less likely to experience damage (for example, being left down in bad weather, or rolling up the fabric the wrong direction.)


All-Aluminum and Stainless Steel Construction

Ours are the Superman of awnings, because the Man of Steel doesn’t rust!

Crafted with stainless steel components and a double-galvanized roller tube, you won’t have to worry about rusting or corrosion from the elements, ensuring years of trouble-free use.


The Ideal Profile – Sleek and Slim

Shade has never looked so good.

Unlike some of its less sophisticated cousins, our awning system was designed to be unnoticeable. We believe that less is more!

Although it’s not invisible, our awning does not attract attention (at least the bad kind). It’s there when you want it, and out of sight when you don’t.


Automatic Control

Awning_Wind_SensorWeather or not… Your autopilot for climate control.

The retractable awning comes standard with Somfy’s Eolis 3D wind sensor, allowing you to stay a step ahead of Mother Nature.

The Eolis 3D wind sensor that will automatically retract your awning when the wind exceeds the pre-set threshold.

The sensor is battery-operated and is installed right on the front bar of the awning.


A delicate balance of arms and shoulders

Awning_ArmsDesigned with strength and endurance for a lifetime of worry-free performance.

Our awning is designed to break under the right conditions (high winds, with the awning extended). The technical term is “Planned Failure” and we believe in it because, well, it’s easier to replace a few awning parts than structural damage to your home.

The ideal awning frame is strong enough to function efficiently. Durable enough to provide a lifetime of worry free performance. Intelligent enough to know when to stay open and when to retract. Graceful enough to smoothly open and close upon command. Small enough to be inconspicuous when closed.

Our frame parts (the shoulders, arms, and bars) were designed and engineered to achieve this delicate balance, and protect your home as a result.


Below are the options available for our Retractable Deck & Patio Awnings. Each awning is made to order, so you can choose the right features for your home and lifestyle.

Motor and Controls

Somfy_LogoWe offer a variety of motor and control options allowing you automatic operation of your awning. We feature motors and controls manufactured by Somfy, the world leader in tubular motors.

Time tested dependability makes Radio Technology Somfy (RTS) the smart choice for a Rainier awning. We’ve found that customers with automated awnings have the highest satisfaction levels with their awnings.


Sun Sensor

Sunis_Sun_SensorUse this wireless sun sensor, powered with an integrated solar cell, to automatically extend the motorized awning based on the sun’s intensity. The wireless and compact design makes it an easy addition to any awning to create a comfortable outdoor space you can enjoy any time.


Home Automation

Somfy_Home_Automation_ThumbMotorized awnings powered by Somfy seamlessly integrate with home automation systems so that you can control lighting, HVAC, AV, and security systems with one device.

Control your motorized awning(s) with Somfy’s TaHomA – a Total Home Automation system. TaHomA allows users to control, schedule, and monitor a variety of products, and efficiently optimizes the interaction of natural and artificial lighting, as well as heating and cooling, according to users’ personal preferences, which saves time, energy, and money.

We can also do custom color matching to any provided sample for an additional cost.


Drop Valance

Deck_Awning_Waterside_HouseIf you love everything about your waterfront home – except for the late afternoon glare off the water, then adding a drop valance to your awning will eliminate that issue.

Our drop valance rolls up into the front bar of the awning and can be controlled manually with a hand-crank, or automatically with motorized operation.


Protective Hood

Awning_Protective_HoodA one-piece, powder-coated, aluminum hood provides a finished look when the awning is retracted. We highly recommend this for those Pacific Northwest winters, to protect your awning from the elements without the hassle of taking it down and storing it. Come summer, your awning will be in tip-top condition and ready for you to enjoy!

Available in a variety of colors.
