Why Your Outdoor Living Space Needs an Awning

Why Your Outdoor Living Space Needs an Awning

It’s probably safe to say most homeowners would love a home feature that improves how they enjoy their outdoor living space, helps them realize cost-savings in their home and adds to the overall aesthetics of the home. If you’re one of these homeowners, awnings are a house feature that you definitely need to explore!

For those unfamiliar with the product, awnings are sheets of canvas attached to a frame and act as a shelter over windows, doorways and decks. Discover all the other ways this product can benefit your home. 

Increasing Home Value

High-quality awnings are not only an attractive addition to a home but also increase the livable space, which raises your home’s equity. Homeowners looking to enjoy outdoor space and weather, without worrying about the sun will gain greatly from having an awning attached to their home.

Allow for Control of Patio Space Environment

Depending on the environment you’re looking to enjoy and the daily forecast, some days you’ll seek the shelter your awning provides, while still having the ability to retract it when you welcome the natural weather.

Reduce Energy Costs

In addition to providing a sheltered space when outside, awnings also minimize the direct solar heat your home absorbs, through windows, in hot weather. This feature can save you up to 23% on your air conditioning bill in warmer weather. Retractable awnings enable further energy savings, as they can be closed in the winter so the sun’s heat helps to heat the home.

Protect Interior Furnishings

When placed over windows, awnings shade your interior furnishings from harsh direct sunlight that causes damage over time.

The strength of our products is clear as we offer an awning with a 4 metre projection–the longest projection in Canada.
