Retractable awnings are one of the best ways to provide overhead shade without obstructing the view. They’ll provide shade when you need it—and easily retract when you don’t—allowing you to make the most of your outdoor space year-round. Ours are made using superior construction standards, and with dozens of fabric options and motorization upgrades to choose from.

Benefits Of Awnings

Center aligned design elementLeft aligned design element
Light Control

Awnings are great for providing retractable overhead shade without obstructing the view. This means you can use them only when you need to—opening them when you need shade—and closing them when you don’t. This makes them a convenient and versatile way to shade an outdoor space, and ideal for homeowners who have a backyard with a view.

Easy To Operate

Awnings are extremely easy to operate—ours even more so. You can manually open or retract your awnings using an attached or removable lever, as well retrofit your awning with motorization, to have it gracefully open and close with the touch of a button.


Awnings are generally very durable, no matter their style. Made from quality materials and built for outdoor use, they’re made to withstand direct exposure to high heat for years, and will often last beyond your warranty. They’re also easy to clean and require only minimal upkeep to maintain.

We provide a wide variety of retractable awning product options to choose from. Learn more about each of these unique offerings below, or give us a call to let us help you design an awning with all your needs and preferences in mind.

Motorization Options

At Hartley Window Coverings, we only sell awnings that are incredibly easy (and safe) to operate. Our awnings can be either manually adjusted—using a removable hand crank—or automatic—via tubular motorization and with a remote control. In either case, there’s a convenient way to provide retractable shade when and where you need it.

Limitless Selection

Our patio awnings come in a variety of colors and styles for both fabrics and hardware. Whether you want an awning that’s the statement piece to your backyard, or simply want to compliment your home’s aesthetic, we have the awning for you. You can work with one of our designers to match your awning to compliment the appearance of your home—or to fit the style or rules your HOA might require.

Dropdown Screens

Need more shade? You can add custom drop-down screens to your awnings that roll down vertically when your awning is open, perfect for keeping shade in the morning or later afternoon. Our dropdown screens are made using low-density fabric, which means they’ll keep you cool and cut down glare, while still preserving the view.

Numerous Application Options

We provide awning solutions for a wide range of applications. Our awning solutions come in a range of styles—including those that are elegant, modern, functional, or simple–as well as a range of both cover and frame materials, to accommodate as many preferences as possible.

Maria N.

“Let me start by saying I was actually referred to Hartley by another vendor who couldn’t offer what I needed to fit a quite awkward space.  I was extremely pleased with Hartley - not just the quality of products offered and the service, but just as important, their creativity in meeting my needs and budget.  Also, their installers were very professional and neat about cleanup.  Would certainly recommend them!”

Curtis M.

“My wife & I had the entire Hartley crew come to our newly rebuilt home in Coffee Park. They installed motorized blinds for ALL the windows and installed a beautiful motorized awning shade for our back patio since it faces west… Can’t say enough great things about this company! If you need blinds or especially an outdoor awning to shade your patio, these are the folks to have do it! Professional, responsible, clean, and they communicate very well with your needs and keep you up to date on the progress. It really helped to make our new house a real home.”

M. P.

“After using Hartley Window Coverings through this past year I would not go elsewhere!  Their people, response to any questions at all times are truly refreshing!  Julie the sales rep definitely went the extra mile and Mike the owner is incredibly sensitive to the customers needs.  The guys who installed were great as well and very neat and tidy.  Can’t say enough about their service procedures.  Definitely give them a call for any type of window coverings inside or out!”

Jennifer T.

"From the moment I contacted Hartley Window Coverings I was treated with the best customer service.  From sales staff, Rachel is so knowledgeable and helpful, to the installers, who were respectful of my time and my home.  I felt like I was their top priority and it has been the best experience of all the home contractors I have dealt with in the last 18 months.  Love my new shades!"

Ro B.

"We were very happy doing business with Hartley Window Coverings- Sasha came over for the initial  consult and was very professional. The installers were  friendly, considerate and knowledgeable. We highly recommend Hartley and would be happy to work with them again."

David A.

"We recently used Hartley Window Coverings for new window treatments in our greatroom  and new vertical blinds in the kitchen dining area. Rachel was so helpful in guiding us through the process. When it came time for the installation Gabe, Jesus and Chris were very neat and careful with our hardwood and tile floors... Rachel was always there when the installation was finished to make sure that we were pleased with the results. The level of customer service from everyone at Hartley is 5 star."

Corinne R.

"Working with Maygen was delightful.  During our rebuild, she came to our new home multiple times to go over the options available to us.  When we finally moved in, she was on hand to help with refining our selections and getting everything installed as soon as possible... I wish all of the vendors we worked with offered the service that Hartley does. There was never any finger pointing or discussion about any of the little issues that arose.  We are extremely satisfied with the products and service provided by Hartley."

Judi H.

“I love my Lutron Palladiom shades. They shade my stairwell and living room from southern and western sun glare. The remote controls are easy to use and never give me any trouble.  Hartley Window Coverings is the BEST!!”

Dustin D.

“We worked with Ann at Hartley Window Coverings on a high-end whole house remodel with a articulate and particular client.  Ann navigated the selection process and was able to meet the client’s requirements in a professional way while communicating changes with us so we could complete the appropriate paperwork on our end.  The installation of the final product was also amazing.  It was an exposed application, so everything had to be perfect.  The job came out perfect, the client is happy, and we are happy.  We appreciate Hartley Window’s partnership.”

Noel B.

"If Hartley Window Coverings has what you are looking for, then no need to look any further.  The service from start to finish was outstanding. The shutters we selected have transformed the look and feel of our home."
