Durasol awnings appear to be one of the leaders in motorized and manually retractable awnings. We did read in online forums that the motorized retractable awnings are nice (particularly with remote control), but they do have an inclination to be repair prone and need fixing fairly frequently. No brand stood out in terms of reliability issues, as they all took some complaints from customers. Many say motorized or electric awnings are “finicky” and aren’t 100% foolproof.
