Why choose to install a retractable awning for my home?

Folding arm awnings are one of the best ways to make outdoor spaces even more livable. Like window coverings, they block the bright rays of the strong Melbourne sun from penetrating through and causing UV damage to your belongings and your loved ones.

These awnings are also quite stylish and can add value to a home by creating an extended living space. They also help protect your home when unfurled, which means you can block heat and light from making it into your home, affecting your energy bills for the better.

Can you customise folding arm awnings?

Absolutely! Our range of high-quality folding arm awnings are available in a variety of timeless colours, fabrics and finishes so you can create the perfect awning to suit your unique property and needs. You can choose how much area they cover and even opt for a fully enclosed awning for total protection of your outdoor space.

You can also choose whether you’d like your awning to be crank operated or motorised. Both options guarantee smooth performance so it comes down to what works best for you and your property. We also offer pitch control which allows you to adjust the angle of your blind to match the angle of the sun promising shade all day long.

If you find where you’d like your blind to roll up is exposed to the elements, we can even provide a cassette that will protect it from the harsh Melbourne weather and ensure your awning has the longest life possible.

How much does a folding arm awning cost?

As we noted above, you can customise quite a bit about your awning, right down to the length and width. So it stands to reason that with no two awnings being quite the same, quotes for different awnings will garner different prices.

That said, the same general factors affect pricing across the board. These are:

  • Size
  • Fabric type
  • Metal type
  • Delivery
  • Installation
  • Manual vs. motorised
  • Pitch control

Here in Melbourne, you can expect to pay anywhere between $2,500-$7,500 for a folding arm awning depending on how these different factors play out together. That’s why it’s always important to request an exact quote for your unique needs from a qualified window treatment company.

How long will my new awning last?

With moving parts located out in the great outdoors, you can’t expect your awning to last forever. But what you can expect is for it to last a very long time. Most folding arm awnings last upwards of 15 years when cared for properly (i.e. don’t leave it open during a wind storm).

The best window treatment companies will also offer workmanship guarantees on top of the fabric and product warranties that come with the actual awning installation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Folding Arm Awnings in Melbourne

Can you manually close a motorised awning during a power loss?

Yes. Automated models come with a backup manual override option to allow you to retract the awning during bad weather.

Do I have to put my awning out all of the way?

You can choose how much of the folding arm awning you want to extend depending on your needs. Some options, like pitch control, may only work when the awning is completely extended.

Can I use my awning during a rainstorm?

Not all of the fabrics used in creating custom awnings will keep you dry. They might be water resistant and designed to stand up to the elements, but they might not be waterproof. So, it’s important to consider this when choosing your fabrics.

What sensors are available with my awning?

If sensors are important to you, you’ll want to make sure to say so up front so you can get an accurate quote from your vendor. That said, you can equip folding arm awnings with a variety of sensors including sun sensors that extend the shade automatically. There are also rain and wind sensors that can retract the awning automatically so it is not damaged in inclement weather.
