My parents downsized and moved into a new single-story ranch style home with lots of windows. The sun through their double patio doors was cooking them, and they didn’t have any shade outside to sit under. My siblings and I got them a 20ft x 10ft motorized Sunair Suntube retractable awning with the sun, rain, and wind sensors. The Sunair dealer installers said the roof mount installation was more difficult than expected, and it took four people to lift and secure it in place, and to adjust the pitch. We went with the sensors, so the awning operates automatically, and provides shade if it’s sunny. I just hope everything works as it’s supposed to as the caliber is not that great considering it was VERY costly.
