MacDONALD AWNING—DESIGNING, BUILDING, AND INSTALLING TOP-QUALITY RETRACTABLE AWNINGS FOR MORE THAN 35 YEARS
A retractable awning expands your seasonal living space and adds value to your house without a costly inconvenient renovation. Awnings block the sun’s heat before it enters your house, cooling your home better than blinds or drapes. Reducing energy costs of air conditioning up to 25 per cent, awnings save you money and reduce your home’s carbon footprint.
Awnings shade you and your family from up to 98 per cent of the sun’s harmful UV rays. Reducing direct sunlight with an awning decreases the temperature on your deck or patio by up to 13° C—invaluable in a Winnipeg August. Our 100% acrylic awning fabrics are water-repellent, mildew-resistant, and easy to care for, staying bright and beautiful for over 10 years.
Colour and pattern options for MacDonald Awnings can be found on the Sunbrella Fabrics for Shade.. There are many different choices; you’ll be sure to find something that matches your dream of an outdoor paradise.
