    0

    Retractable AwningsWhen most people think about awnings, they imagine the eye catching kind that hangs over businesses or movie theaters, but there is another kind of awning that is great for any home or business. Retractable awnings are becoming increasingly popular.

    Hassle-free Removal
    A retractable awning provides shade and protection when needed, but they are not a hassle to remove when you want a clear view. They offer restaurants a way to give their patrons an outdoor meal so long as it is warm enough outside. For residential use, they are the perfect way to make any patio, porch, or walkway the perfect way to thoroughly enjoy the outdoors.

    Suitable for Any Purpose
    Retractable awnings can be both flexible and versatile, making them ideal for nearly any kind of residence or business. You can choose from a number of different materials that give you varying amounts of light and color choices. This makes it easier to find a retractable awning that will match your home.  It then appears as a natural extension, and not an awkward add on. You can also choose the length of the awning, so that it does not extend beyond your area or leave out parts you want to protect.

    Cost-effective
    Typically, these very versatile awnings only have attachments to the house, meaning you won’t have to contend with polls and rods in your way or view. You save not only on your heating and cooling bills with these awnings, but you can also protect them when they are not in use. This extends their life span, so that you do not have to consider replacing them for several years.

  • Awning Fabric: Choose the Best to Add Style and Comfort

    0

    Awnings For HomeAwnings are becoming quite popular among today’s homeowners. For a while, they were considered “old-fashioned”; however, they are now becoming a preferred way to improve one’s home because they are simple and affordable, yet lend functionality to outdoor living spaces. Apart from functionality, you also get aesthetic beauty. There are a lot more choices in awning fabrics due to the technological advancements made in synthetic fabric design and production. You can find the perfect awning to add style and comfort to your home.

    Benefits of Awnings in Homes

    No matter what architectural style your home has, you can find an awning that will suit your home perfectly. From the always-stylish classic stripes to other patterns, fun and sophisticated, you have a plethora to choose from. A great awning with a stylish pattern and color can give your home:

    • A touch of class and sophistication that other homes do not have

    • Protection against the sun’s harsh ultraviolet rays and pouring rains

    • More value as it is a way to improve your home

    • Energy-efficiency as awnings provide shade, allowing you to cut down on energy bills

    Adding the perfect awning can change your home’s appearance, giving it style as well as comfort.

    Types of Awning Fabrics

    There are two types of fabrics that you can choose from for your home’s awning. They both have their own specific benefits and you can make your choice based on their functionality and aesthetic appeal. The two awning fabrics available are:

    Laminated Plastic Awning Fabric

    The features of this type of fabric are:

    • They have a denier scrim in the center for strength with two layers that are colorized. These two layers are then covered on sides, top and bottom, with protective lamination layers.

    • They have a vinyl top-coating which is used as a finishing, preventing its color from fading. This top-coat also gives the fabric a smooth texture and enhances the vibrancy of its color.

    • It is a great choice if you live in an area that has high humidity as it can be used 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    Acrylic Awning Fabric

    This is another fantastic awning fabric option with features that give you the following benefits:

    • They have a layer of woven acrylic colored fabric that is placed between two layers of protective coating. This protective coat makes them highly resistant to extreme weather conditions, mildew, rot, water, ultraviolet rays, etc. It also prevents the fabric’s color from fading even after long exposure to the sun, rain, etc.

    • They have durability and flexibility. Many homeowners love acrylic woven awning fabrics as they often outlast their warranties.

    • The solution-dyed fabric thread gives them high color fading-resistance and makes them highly durable.

    You will need the services of a contractor for awning installation, especially if you require a large size for your home. Of course, with professional service comes bills that are higher than expected but the fact that you do save on energy bills in the long run makes it an investment that is well-worth the price you paid. Awnings come in all sizes, colors and styles so you can increase your home’s market value and add a touch of style to it.

    Homeowners are always looking for ways to make improvements on their property to add value and if you are also considering a home improvement project, what could be better than having an awning installed on your deck or patio? You can enjoy a cool glass of lemonade or iced tea and spend some quiet time under it on a warm evening or entertain friends with a BBQ party without having to worry about anyone being irritated by the sun’s harsh rays.

    When you pick the perfect awning for your home, you make sure that you and your loved ones are always comfortable even on the hottest days. It will also make your home look very stylish as you can choose from a plethora of styles and colors to match your home. The right awning will give you benefits which include energy cost-cutting, better market value, and protection from heat and last but not least; it will make your home the envy of all your neighbors.

  • Beach House Fun in the Sun with Awnings

    0

    Fun In the Sun With AwningsAfter a fun-filled day at the beach, people want to relax on their porch in comfort. But the scorching sun can become an annoyance. Unfortunately, depending on the state you may reside in, the sun can be somewhat of a hindrance when scheduling your outdoor adventures. The utilization of specific weather-related tools, including but not limited to awnings, can allow for an enjoyable afternoon without the burdensome after effects of too much sun.

    Whether you want to set up an awning for decorative purposes or for practical reasons, there is an awning to suit your needs. Awnings come in a wide range of colors and fabrics to match your style and will provide the comfort you and your families are looking for at the beach.

    • Adds uniqueness. Awnings permit a unique addition to any space. Not only can you customize the performance of your awning but you can also personalize your piece with different colors and weather related materials. Some awnings extend while other awnings open up to a designated length. Depending on the nature of your needs, additional customization may be what you are looking for.

    • Controls temperature. Utilization of awnings significantly decreases the temperature in any space, as the actual shading device reflects light to maintain more comfortable temperatures. This is especially useful for you if you plan to spend a great deal of time on a porch or deck, when the stagnant heat tends to become uncomfortable. Keep those summer rays at bay with your own line of heat protection.

    • A simple option under sun. For those of you who opt to spend a significant amount of time outdoors, especially in climates that are warm for a majority of the calendar year, then you should consider purchasing a fixed awning that does     not  require constant set-up or extending. This is a hassle-free option that many customers tend to gravitate towards.
