Retractable Awnings


Our custom retractable awnings are an ideal solution for blocking the sun and creating a shaded patio or deck at the touch of a button. Whether in your own backyard or on your restaurant patio, retractable awnings are the perfect way to provide shade and solar protection without taking on an expensive construction project.

Each of our retractable shade awnings is a completely custom solution, manufactured to cover the ideal width and projection of your outdoor area and create a comfortable, usable space to escape the intensity of the Houston sun, then effortlessly disappear into a low-profile cassette when a perfect weather day comes along.


Retractable awnings have come a long way from the old-fashioned awnings of yesteryear. Our innovative and award-winning awnings are much more modern and minimalistic, featuring aluminum and stainless-steel construction and an extensive selection of fabrics, frame colors, and styles. Perfectly combining form and function, our retractable awnings are engineered for lasting durability and are custom manufactured for your unique Houston outdoor oasis.

Many optional features are available such as a drop valance, which is a solar screen that rolls down from the extended awning to provide additional shade in the afternoon or evening when the sun is low in the sky.


We partner with leading home automation companies such as Somfy Systems, Lutron, and Crestron to provide several options in awning motorization and controls. Motorized awnings can be controlled with either a remote or via a smart phone app, such as the Somfy myLink. Optional environmental sensors will also allow your motorized awning to respond to weather conditions. In order to protect your awning from sustaining any damage, a wind motion sensor will automatically retract your awning into its cassette during high wind speeds.

The Shade Shop offers an extensive selection of high-end retractable awnings from leading manufacturers such as KE Outdoor Design, Markilux, Rainier, Sunesta, and Corradi USA - several of which are on display in our centrally-located Houston showroom.
