Custom Shade Solutions

Improve Comfort and Curb Appeal With New Awnings

You love spending time on your deck or patio, but the lack of shade makes it uncomfortable in the afternoon sun. Or maybe you get too warm sitting in your favorite chair if it is located near a window. At The Window People, we have the perfect solution: awnings. Our residential awnings include:

  • Retractable awnings – Create shade for your outdoor living space at the touch of a button with a beautiful awning made with UV-reflective fabric.
  • Window awnings – Keep the warm sun out of your home even when your windows are open with permanent window awnings.
  • Exterior solar shades - MOST Efficient way to block the heat of the sun from the outside

Both types of awnings are available in different styles, as well as fabric colors and stripe patterns. No matter what look you prefer for your awnings, you can rest assured that they will add an eye-catching visual element to your home’s exterior, improving curb appeal. To learn more about the retractable awnings, window awnings, and other shade solutions that we offer in Fairfield County, Connecticut, and Westchester County, New York, contact The Window People today.


The Estate Awning is the most popular model that we offer. It adds welcome shade to decks and patios in a large range of sizes, protecting you and your family from the sun's heat and damaging rays.

Estate Slim-fit

Engineered and designed to fit narrow spaces, this model squeezes a lot of shade into small areas. The arms cross over each other when retracted, so its projection is not compromised by its width. It's ideal for apartment or condominium balconies, terraces, or places with limited mounting widths.

Estate XLP

Extra Long Projection (XLP) is what this awning model was designed for. Projecting out over 14 feet, this type of awning requires telescoping legs for additional support. It provides plenty of shade for large decks or patios, allowing more people to enjoy the cool comfort.


A full cassette on this awning model protects the fabric when not in use. The fabric is supported with a hood and tray, keeping it clear of dirt and debris, making it a great option for beachfront or lakeside homes.


Like the Manor, this model has a full cassette protecting the fabric when retracted. It is available in smaller mounting widths, and due to a different type of support in the awning frame, it does not require as much frame support.


This model offers quality shade at an affordable price. It offers many of the same features, benefits, and options as our other awning models, but there are less size options to choose from.
