If you have a backyard patio that could use some shade or just feels a little too empty, consider installing a patio awning for both function and design features. Unlike a fixed roof over your deck or patio, retractable awnings offer you the most functionality as they can be opened or closed at the push of a button. Consider these perks of installing an awning that go beyond functionality.
- Ideal For Indoor/Outdoor Living – A patio awning will revitalize your outdoor patio or deck by turning it into an indoor/outdoor functional space. Adding a cover above your patio furniture or picnic table immediately gives the feeling of an added room at your house. An awning can help create a great outdoor dining space in your backyard.
- Increase Your Energy Efficiency – An outdoor awning will limit the incoming solar rays that reach your house and penetrate through your windows. As the heat from these rays is redirected away from your house, it will reduce the amount of cooling your AC system needs to complete and ultimately reduce your energy bills.
- Reduce UV Damage – Retractable awnings limit the amount of UV light that reaches your home. This will reduce UV damage to materials on the exterior of your house including the siding, trim, and windows. UV damage to items inside your home such as fabrics and furniture will also be more limited.
- Protect Your Skin – Feel more comfortable enjoying your outdoor space when you are protected from the sun’s harmful rays under a patio awning. The retractable awning functionality allows you to manage the amount of sun you are exposed to throughout your day. It can also protect you from light showers or other undesirable weather conditions.
- Bring In A Design Element – Retractable awnings come in all different styles that can add a nice touch to the design of your home. Choose from hundreds of fabrics and awning edge styles to compliment your exterior furniture. The fabric options available for your patio awning are also water and weather resistant.
