I am a regular on kitchens and appliances but new to this forum
We have a 40 x 12 foot deck - it is not rectangular but 2 offset rectangles (center is 40 feet long-so one deck if that makes sense)
It faces west.
I looked into sun sails- but don't think we can make them work - not enough attachment points on our 4 foot elevated deck.
I was initially going to go with umbrellas- but large ones and offset -cantilever style- are pretty expensive.
We had a local awning company come out today to give a quote.
We are looking at a motorized version.
We would put the awning just on one side- but it will be relatively large -19x10 roof mount. Our house is 2 story but this section is one story vaulted.
He did not recommend the wind sensor as you lose the manual crank over ride.
The awning will cost more than the umbrellas but hopefully better coverage.
I found some old threads but nothing recent.
Is this a good idea?
