Wide Range of High-Quality Awnings
Full-Cassette Retractable Awnings
Full-cassette awnings are a retractable patio awning that provides better protection from the elements than semi-cassette awnings due to their design. These awnings are perfect for use where extra protection from the elements is required.
Semi-Cassette awnings provide some protection from the elements and still feature a drop-down valance for forward-facing protection but are best used under soffits where total protection from the elements isn’t always required.
Square Bar Awnings
A strong and versatile awning option, perfect for use in both commercial and domestic situations, and can be operated manually via a hand crank or automatically via remote control.
Automated Electric Awnings
Automated electric awnings are a variant of full-cassette awnings that comes as standard with a motor already equipped for easy and simple protection from the elements – a great alternative to manual awnings.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a patio awning cost?
Patio Awnings can range in price depending on a number of factors, from the type of awning you’re buying to the material it uses and it’s size. On average awnings can range anywhere from £150 to £5000+, with prices for off-the-shelf awnings usually ranging from around £150-500.
What is the best patio awning?
This is subjective and more depends on what you require from your awning, as each has different strengths and weaknesses. For example, you may require a full-cassette awning over a semi-cassette awning if you’re looking to place your awning in an area that requires extra protection from the elements.
Do patio awnings need planning permission?
In almost all cases, residential patio awnings will not require any planning permissions. However, if your awning causes water to run off into a neighbouring property, then you may need to ask for planning permission beforehand. You may also require extra planning permissions if you live in a conservation area, listed building or want awnings for your commercial property. It’s recommended you contact your local council to get an accurate answer.
Are Patio Awnings Waterproof?
Most types of patio awning are not 100% waterproof but are instead water-resistant to a very high level. You can purchase special waterproof coatings for your awnings however these aren’t really needed as the pitch of your awning helps water runoff before it’s able to seep through your awning.
Can retractable awnings withstand wind?
Different awnings are made by different companies, using different methods, materials and time. Due to this, it’s hard to say exactly how much wind your awnings will be able to withstand. Any retractable awnings should be able to withstand winds up to around 19-24 mph provided it’s correctly installed. You should always ensure you retract your awnings during strong winds.
Do awnings increase home value?
It’s important to understand that each home is different, and many factors determine the price of a home. However, while not guaranteed to increase the value of your home, upgrading your outdoor area can lead to an increase in the value of your home, provided it’s done correctly and to a professional standard.
