Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are the benefits of a retractable awning?

A: Retractable awnings are the ideal solution to shade deck and patio areas.  The primary benefit of this awning is the ability to retract it when it is not needed.  Additionally, a retractable awning can extend up to 16'6" from the house without poles!

Q:  If there are no poles, what supports a retractable awning?

A: Retractable awnings are designed to be self-supporting.  This style of awning relies on secure mounting in conjunction with spring-loaded arms.

Q: Why would I want my retractable awning motorized?

A: Nothing could be more convenient than simply flipping a switch and watching your awning roll out on its own.  Once fully extended or retracted, the unit will stop automatically.  You may also stop the awning in any position with the wall-mounted switch.  Research has shown that a motorized awning is used four times as much as a manually operated retractable awning.

Q:  If I have limited height above my patio or deck, can I still have a retractable awning installed?

A: Yes!  In situations where there is limited height above a patio or deck a retractable awning can be mounted on the roof.  With the use of specially designed roof mount brackets this type of installation is structurally secure and trouble-free.  Over one-third of all our retractable awning installations are roof mount.

Q: Are all retractable awning systems the same?

A: No!  There are two components that make up a successful retractable awning installation.  One is the actual retractable awning system and the other is the local company which sells and installs the awning.  Queen City Awning has provided professional sales and installation of the Retractable Awning Systems for over 15 years in the Greater Cincinnati area.
