Sometimes an opportunity arises that you simply cannot pass up. Maybe this opportunity doesn’t provide the benefits you had hoped, or maybe, like in the case of Thatcher Retractables, the opportunity turns into a profitable business decision.

Rodney Allott has lived and breathed the awning industry since he started working. He started installing doors when he was 16, and continued working in the industry, moving up from installation to sales positions throughout the years.

Armed with a strong knowledge of the awning industry, Rodney joined Thatcher Oaks, a commercial and residential awning company, as a sales representative in 2006. His knowledge of the industry and his hard work ethic were noticed by Thatcher Oaks management, and Rodney was promoted to Director of Sales, Director of Sales and Operations, and Director of Sales for Commercial and Residential Sales Channels respectively between 2006 and 2011.

In 2006, Thatcher Oaks split into two divisions: Thatcher Oaks Commercial Awnings and Thatcher Retractables (residential). In October 2011, Thatcher Oaks decided to focus solely on the commercial side of their business, and Rodney Allott, Director of Sales & Operations for Thatcher Retractables, purchased the residential side of the business and opened Thatcher Retractables Products Inc. as a separate business entity.

Thatcher Retractables is different than other awning companies. Their commitment to quality products and superior customer service has allowed them to grow into the largest and most trusted residential and retractable awning specialist in the Chicagoland area. Not only do they install their products, but they also manufacture them locally in Burr Ridge, Illinois. In fact, they’re the only Chicagoland company to manufacture, install and service residential retractable awnings.

Thatcher Retractables is dedicated to the residential awning industry, which means that all employees are experienced and knowledgeable. Because of this expertise, Thatcher Retractables is skilled to service any retractable awnings that were purchased from or installed by another awning company.

All Thatcher Retractables products are designed to help you enjoy your outdoor living space. From sun structures to retractable window awnings and everything in between, they have plenty of products to choose from that match the needs and style of your home. Plus, all of their products and services come with a warranty, which solidifies their commitment to quality.
