Summer heat in Las Vegas can be unbearable so planning on building a shaded backyard awning is a sensible idea for the summer months. There are many choices to consider when it comes to awnings. One of the most popular choices is the retractable awning. Retractable awnings are able to be extended or removed at any time you so choose. Depending on the weather or the whims of those in attendance, Retractable awnings allow for the greatest flexibility. These awnings come in many styles and materials, and can even be motorized or manually retractable.
Another option is the canopy awning. Canopy awnings are recommended for climates where snow or heavy rain is not prevalent and almost ideal for the Las Vegas sun. Canopy awnings are good at keeping out sun but not as great when it comes to heavy precipitation.
For areas where bad weather occurs more frequently, such as snow or rain, a metal deck awning may be a better choice. Metal deck awnings tend to be more durable and last longer. They have the ability to go a long way toward protecting your deck from the elements, as well.
Finally, for an awning that offers the flexibility of a canopy awning but is more of a casual style, shade sails are the best option. Shade sails are thin fabric and won't keep out the elements, but they're eminently repositionable and come in a variety of stylish colors and fabrics.
