Retractable Awnings

As much as we love the summer sun, sunburns, parched plants, or faded patio furniture are no fun. Why not have Rümi install a retractable awning?

Retractable awnings are an excellent blend of form and function. With hundreds of colours to choose from, awnings offer a maintenance-free solution for sun-protection that adds to the design of your outdoor space. Best of all, they tuck discreetly away when not needed, and can stay put through winter months without worry. With just the click of a button, you can turn your outdoor space into a shady oasis.

We’ll look at every aspect of the job to ensure that there are no hazards that will impact our ability to complete the job safely. If safety issues are a concern, we work with local structural experts to help determine if extra precautions need to be put into place such, as a roof anchor.

    It doesn’t hurt to give us a call and ask! We’ll have to take it on a case-by-case basis, but we’ll be happy to let you know during the call.

  • Do I have to be home for my appointment?

    Our team of screen technicians prefers you to be on-site at the beginning and at the end of the installation for final inspection and signoff. Don’t worry though, our crews are flexible and are able to adapt to your schedule.
