  • Custom Awnings: Add Beauty to Your Home’s Curb Appeal

    0

    It doesn’t matter how much care you take over arranging outdoor celebrations with family and friends at home, you can’t always arrange perfect weather. Whether it’s too sunny or a traditional summer torrential downpour, a custom awning will make sure that you can still take advantage of your outdoor space and the fresh air without being reliant on the elements. Add More Beauty With Custom Awning

    Add Beauty and Practicality
    The traditional idea of an awning that extends a long way from your home might not be quite what you had in mind in terms of adding appeal to your home. However, a custom-made product can tailor perfectly to the existing design of your home and the scope and size of your outdoor space. In addition to choosing the size of your awning, you can choose the color and design to match it with the look of your home and patio area.
    Shading your windows from the sun’s rays can also cut down on both heat and glare, and lead to a reduction in your summer air conditioning costs.

    Curb Appeal and Adding Value
    When arriving at someone’s house, the first thing you notice is how neat and well cared for it appears to be. Nothing ties in a look like custom awnings where solid color, pattern and design all serve to enhance the appeal of the house. If you’re looking to sell your property or just give it a quick and simple boost, custom awnings are the ideal choice.
    If you’ve worked hard to make your outdoor space the perfect extension of your home, installing custom awnings can help you reclaim your patio and garden from the elements.

  • Awnings Can Save Energy Costs in Summer

    0

    Awnings in SummerLong summer days and warm nights make for an ideal opportunity to enjoy your outdoor space at home, especially if you’ve spent time and effort creating a patio area for your family to enjoy and to entertain your friends in. The downside is that although your energy bills for heating and lighting will be lower, the money will just trickle straight out of your bank account on expensive air conditioning to keep your house cool.

    Keeping Cool
    However, one practical and beautiful addition to your patio space that will not only keep you and your family cool but make a sizeable inroad into cutting your air conditioning bills is a window awning.

    Environmentally Friendly
    Direct sunlight shining through your glass windows can account for as much as 20% of the load on your air conditioning system, so cutting those energy costs is not only a smart financial move but good for the planet too.

    Practical and Flexible
    Awnings and blinds are available in a variety of designs and styles. It can be worked either via a pulley system or even motorized for your adjustments, giving you the option of part or fully retracting them. After all, if you’re looking to cut air-conditioning costs in summer, it makes sense to be able to cut heating bills in winter by taking advantage of bright, sunny days by fully retracting your awning.

    Cost-effective, fixed or portable awnings will not only help to cut your bills year round but will be an attractive and practical addition to your home.
