How this balcony was saved by a Markilux 6000 retractable awning

November 15, 2016

When Deborah and Alan Weintraub moved into their town home, they loved their beautiful, expansive view of the mountains from the balconies off the main floor and upper level master bedroom. It didn’t take long before they noticed the nice warmth their west-facing windows provided during the winter turned blisteringly hot in the summer, rendering their balconies nearly impossible to use.

Most people, when they think of a retractable shading system, think of the bulky, noisy cassettes and limited design options of basic awnings. So the Weintraubs thought their only option for a clean, contemporary look would be a pergola, though that would mean sacrificing the ability to retract their shade.

The Denver Shade Company introduced the Markilux 6000, a fully automatic outdoor shading solution. The Weintraubs were smitten. Here was a product that combined design and functionality, matched the esthetic and architecture of their home, and adhered to the guidelines of their homeowners association.

“I was able to choose from over 300 color shade options with complete UV protection,” Deborah said. “The fact that it is self-cleaning is brilliant not to mention that it is so smooth and quiet when opening and closing! I must add, as well, that I am confident that when a gust of wind comes, which has occurred, the awning will automatically retract and we will not worry that something will break.”

The Weintraubs and their two puppies now use their balconies daily because of the shade and privacy their Markilux 6000 provides.

When we asked them why they chose The Denver Shade Company, Deborah replied, “Jared and his team were efficient, polite and a joy to work with. We experienced superior customer service every step of the way, from design to installation and follow-up.”
