An awning can be either fixed or retractable. A fixed awning, as its name suggests, stays in the same position all the time. It is usually some type of shade cloth fixed to a permanent frame of steel or aluminium. Retractable awnings can be swiftly stowed away, and are available in either powered or manually operated versions. In climates where permanent awnings must be dismantled at the approach of winter and erected again in spring, retractable awnings, which can be left in their cassette all year round, are especially useful.
Like any large city, the greater Kansas City area has many homes with smaller backyards. Fortunately, concrete patio design can be developed in such as way as to make the most of these smaller spaces. Concrete can be made to look like stone, slate or marble, and it can be polished or given the appearance of large or small bricks. Pre-cut pavers are also an excellent choice for a patio, and homeowners can enjoy the sensation of an Italian Palazzo or woodsy retreat in their own backyard. A good concrete company can give suggestions and offer examples of their work.
