5 Big Benefits of Awnings
1. Extend Your Living Space!
Awnings add substantial space for outdoor living and entertainment. Custom awnings can be made in any size or shape to fit the design of your home. Fabric Awnings are made to keep out the rain and sun while still having a breathable and outdoor experience.
2. Energy Savings
According to a study done by PAMA (Professional Awning Manufactures Association),
“Awnings reduce cooling energy use by 45-66 percent as compared to the un-shaded house.”
When Sunlight directly hits a window it causes the window to heat up. This increases cooling costs dramatically. An Awning acts as a barrier between the sunlight and the window.
Adding a drop curtain to an awning or porch can help with creating privacy. Houses are often built close to neighbors and it is nice to have a little privacy at times. Drop curtains are a great solution for this!
4. Add Value To Your Home
Awnings can significantly add value to your home. Realtors will often use an awning as a selling point on a home, because it extends the living space and cuts down on cooling costs.
5. Protection From UV Rays
Awnings block most of the harmful UV Rays of the sun…
“Sunbrella shade fabrics are high in UPF protection, and are recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation as an aid in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin as a part of a complete sun protection regimen, including regular use of sunscreen”
UV Rays can also do further damage to your interior floors, deck, and seat cushions.
