What makes a Retractable Patio Awning a Retractable Awning Anyway?
Retractable awnings are awnings with movable arms that extend or retract the fabric. The arms themselves are metal, the number and length of which depend on the size of the covering itself. Sturdier awnings, however, usually come with at least two arms.
The more you look around the more you will agree that all retractable awnings simply are not created equal. The UNI-LUX, Accent’s intermediate-level awning, is fabricated without sacrificing quality while constructed to be superior to other awnings in its category. Ideal for the cost conscious customer the UNI-LUX retractable awning is custom-made to order, being built in the same factory and by the same people as our ELITE class awning. The UNI-LUX retractable awning is even sewn with the same “PTFE“ Teflon thread and utilizes the same high-grade stainless steel hardware as the premium class ELITE.
The acrylic awning fabric is available in a tasteful selection of stock colors and the aluminum framework comes in a durable white powder coated finish. The UNI-LUX retractable arm type is a single cable/dual spring design and is offered in projections 5ft to 10 ft. All of this quality rolled into a perfect awning that supplies you a cost effective option that other companies can’t match.
Extending your awning allows you to recapture that seldom used patio, deck or balcony. On a hot summer day the UNI-LUX retractable awning will cool the interior of your home by as much as 20 degrees.
The installers were great when they put my outdoor window/door screen.
It works perfectly and it’s going to be great when summer comes around
and that west side window/slider gets the full heat of the sun. It’s
going to make a huge difference and this is the first time that I’m
really looking forward to the summertime. I wished I had thought of
installing this type of outdoor window/door treatment years ago. It
would have saved me tons of money from the sun destroying all the
inside window treatments that I had to keep purchasing because of UV
ray ruining the fabric. So this screen will the perfect fix.
James our sales rep was very informative and helpful
in selecting our drop down shade for our patio. It
came sooner than expected and the install team was
right on time and very professional. We would order
again without hesitation. 5 + Stars!
We have been using Accent Awnings for the past 8-9 years.
Everywhere in our home where we can use any awnings to
block out the hot California sun, we have it installed by
this company. Shaun has been our sale rep for the last
few times span over the past 7 years, and I can not express
enough how wonderful Shaun has been. Shaun is extremely
humble, respectful, professional, absolutely polite,
knowledgeable and caring.

Delivery time varies from 2 to 4 weeks depending on the product type and the time of the year. All of our products are custom built in our own factory. Some however involve longer manufacturing processes. Accent Awning Company powder coats the frames on its custom stationary awnings and this process is done by professional powder coaters and therefore requires more lead time. Retractable awnings and sun screens are also custom built to your color and size requirements but can be manufactured quickly from existing raw materials, leaving turnaround time more a question of seasonal workloads.

Yes. In most cases awning fabrics can be installed on existing awning frames. We will be glad to come to your home and give you an exact written estimate to recover the awning or drop shade fabrics. We specialize in recovering stationary awnings, retractable awnings or drop shades, even if they were originally manufactured by others.

Most reputable “big-box” chains selling “mass produced” awnings have a return policy. Usually the awning needs to be repackaged in its original container and the cost of shipping must be paid by the consumer. Accent Awning Company provides a full “turn-key” experience and may be an alternate choice before or after the big-box purchase.
