Awnings are an excellent addition to your home. Not only does it provide additional living and recreational space for you and your loved ones, but it also provides much-needed shade and protection from a myriad of external factors. In addition, awnings made from quality materials add value to residential properties, too. With all these benefits, purchasing awnings for your Sydney home is a worthwhile investment.


Here are some of the most popular types of awnings installed in residential homes in Sydney:



  • Retractable Awnings



Retractable awnings are the most popular type of awnings. They are flexible in that they offer shade from the sun and protection from the elements, but with the added versatility of being rolled up or folded when not in use. Retractable awnings prices in Sydney are most reasonable. In addition, retractable awnings come in different types of fabrics, thus enabling you to install one even on a limited budget.


Waterproof retractable awnings are most favoured by residential homeowners in that they are sturdy and easy to maintain, too.



  • Aluminum Awnings



Aluminum awnings are known for their superior strength and durability. They are ideal for big patio spaces and walkways. Unlike traditional canvas awnings that can be installed on your own, aluminum awnings are installed by professionals.



  • Fixed Awnings



Fixed awnings or stationary awnings are typically dome shaped and installed not only on top of patios but on various home outdoor spaces such as terraces and walkways. Unlike retractable awnings that can be rolled up and folded up when not in use, fixed awnings do not have motorised or manual tracks. With this in mind, you need to perform regular care and maintenance to ensure that leaves, water, snow, or debris do not accumulate and damage the awnings over time.
