An amazing way of extending your living area out into the garden is to invest in a retractable roofing system. These are often used by our clients when wanting to cover a large patio or pool area, up to 30sqm. You receive all the benefits you would by installing a permanent shade structure with the added flexibility of being able to retract the roof either by remote, timer or sensor.
We have brands made here in Australia (Sydney), USA, UK and Europe all offering varying degrees of design features including built in LEDs, gutter and drainage options and fabric zip technology. There are a huge range of lightweight and commercial structures available all with a wide range of fabrics to choose from. These can be fitted to an existing skylight, conservatory, erected to fit onto the side of a building or be totally free standing.
These structures are supported on two front posts either end of the awnings final maximum projection; they are extremely stable in windy conditions, up to force 6. Depending on fabric choice the roofing system also offers great water repellent qualities, with some brands offering a telescopic post to adjust the roof pitch and improve drainage, and others with built- in gutter and drains hidden within the framework.
Not only can these roofing system give great overhead cover, they can also come as a complete enclosure with external zip blinds fixed onto the roof posts or by attaching an additional zip blind to the valance of the awning

I love my blinds. They’re the best I’ve ever had. And Matt who did the quote and installed them is terrific. Nothing was too much trouble.
