Wood pergolas look great but their function is often under utilized. Adding a Craftbilt retractable canopy from Alexander Awnings turns your pergola into a shade and rain sanctuary allowing you greater use of the area. Easy manual operation allows you to slide the fabric back and forth as weather conditions change. The draped fabric is at a slight angle which moves rainwater in one direction, usually away from your house. If you don’t have a pergola built, we can recommend a contractor or offer you an aluminum frame as a low maintenance option.
