Benefits of having awnings on your home
• Improved Curb Appeal
Window awnings can be a great way to compliment your home’s exterior. Awnings are available in all sorts of different colors and styles so you shouldn’t have a hard time finding something that looks great with your home’s decor. Your awnings wouldn’t even have to be a permanent fixture on your home if you don’t want them to be. Retractable awnings are very popular with homeowners, so you could only have them extended when you want them to be.
• Energy Savings
More energy is transferred through glass doors and windows than through any other construction element on a building. In fact, on a hot day, more energy comes through one square foot of glass than through an entire insulated wall. Properly designed awnings can substantially increase energy saved over film and tinted glass alternatives, by creating a barrier between the sun and glass.
• Affordable, adaptable outdoor comfort
Consider a canopy or awning over decks and patios. Both offer a long-term solution to needed space at a lower cost. Your deck will be shaded from the hot sunrays and, depending on the awning fabric, provide outdoor protection on a rainy day.
