Our Custom Awnings help you beat the heat while upgrading your curb appeal
Before air conditioning was even a thing, awnings was the way to go. Even today, because of rising energy costs awnings are a great option to incorporate into a home to help offset these increases. An awning happens to be another low cost home improvement project and is one of those that quickly pays for itself, given the energy savings you’ll likely experience. The other nice thing for homeowners is that awnings come in a variety of styles and colors, making them unique and a reasonable way to add value to a home.
Another advantage of using awnings is their ability to protect your furniture and flooring from any kind of prolonged sun exposure which can result in sun damage. Awnings also come in the retractable variety allowing you to keep your outdoor living spaces cool throughout the hot summer months.
We’ll take a closer look at the types of awnings available to you and your home:
A traditional window awning has sides that will provide you and your home with more sun protection than the sideless awnings. These types of awnings come in handy for windows that face to the east and the west. A unique type of awning that you can purchase is one called a spear window awning. These awnings are made with iron frames and finished off with spear tips called finials. Drop arm awnings are a motorized version of a traditional awning, allowing you easily retract awnings from hard to reach windows.
Historically retractable awnings were only found in luxury communities and hard to come by outside of that. The great news is that these retractable patio awnings are now widely available and are quite popular because of their durability and low maintenance characteristics. These motors can be controlled by the use of a remote control, making it even more convenient to operate.
