Shade Outdoor Living Solutions is proud to partner with Sunesta retractable awnings, the industry’s leading provider of retractable awnings, screens, and accessories.  Sunesta offers a built-to-last line of shading products that are a staple of sun protection for countless American homes.

What Are Retractable Awnings?

Motorized awnings are the perfect solution for providing shade to Austin homes. With the touch of a button, these electric awnings can cover your porch or patio or retract when you don’t need it. We source our key components, such as the motor for effortless extension and retraction, and fabrics from Europe, not China or other lower quality sources.

Can Retractable Awnings Be Used in The Rain?

Sunesta’s products are versatile and able to withstand hurricane-level winds. Sunesta motorized awnings are the only brand allowed to be installed legally in hurricane-prone Miami-Dade county. While you may not need to worry about hurricanes in Austin, Sunseta awnings also provide wind sensors for automatic retraction in heavy winds.

How Long Do Motorized Awnings Last?

 Not surprisingly given the quality of components, Sunesta provides a lifetime warranty on all awning frames. For those clients with discriminating taste, a selection of five valance styles allows customization to each client’s aesthetic preference. 

Dimensions – Up to 40 feet wide with projections up to 14’8″ inches.
Fabrics – Over 150 styles including a variety of color and pattern options.
Frames – Color options include white, beige, clay and brown.
Warranties – The Sunesta is backed by a lifetime warranty on the frame, a 10-year warranty on fabric and a five-year warranty on the motor.



What Our Clients Are Saying


Shade Outdoor Living Solutions out of Austin just completed our Arcadia Louvered Roof here in the Canyon Lake, TX area. After looking at some other options out there, this was an easy choice in regards to durability, low cost of maintenance, and the 10 year warranty on the work and structure itself. The install took two days. The crew was great, on time, knowledgeable, and kept us informed and involved throughout. I have and would recommended this product to my closest friends and family members. Very happy with the purchase!

I hired Shade Outdoor Living Solutions to install an Arcadia Louvered Roof system at my house. I am extremely pleased with the results. It looks great and has totally changed the look and feel of my outdoor space. My specific project included a single support beam with two sides of the porch attached to my roof. It’s very stable. I also had them wire the system for a ceiling fan and two LED lights. Before adding the porch, we had no desire to spend time in the back yard because it was too hot. Now, it’s very inviting and we’ve added some party lights to make it look and feel even better. In fact, one of my teenage sons said “the porch looks cool and modern and now it makes the rest of your house look old.” So there’s that. I’m extremely pleased and would highly recommend the Arcadia louvered roof system from Shade Outdoor Living Solutions. It looks awesome and completely changed my back yard. Everyone that has been to my house also really likes it.
