  • Cool off Ideas Under a Retractable Awning


    Retractable AwningRetractable awnings serve several purposes. They provide shade and protect interior of your home from damage caused by UV rays, direct sunlight, and rain. Awnings do much more than just cover your patio. When a homeowner has the right type of information, they can choose one of several varieties of patio awnings that will protect their home and family from the heat of the sun and unexpected storms and downpours. Both stationary and retractable awnings provide many different types of benefits and will pay for themselves several times over.

    • Makes an ideal covering for parties and dinners.
      Retractable awnings provide a cool, shaded environment that is ideal for hosting parties or family dinners. They provide ample lighting without the heat and discomfort that is often felt when people are forced to sit in the direct sunlight. Many retractable awnings can be adjusted to pitch downward as the sun sets, offering long lasting protection. Once the sun has gone down, the awning can be put up so that guests can enjoy a night of stargazing.
    • Larger awnings can offer shade for pools and hot tubs.
      Larger awnings can be extended outward to reach over a portion of your swimming pool or to cover a hot tub. While it may not cover the entire pool, it will provide a small amount of shade for an area of the pool. This is ideal for families with small children. Parents want their children to be able to enjoy the pool and with a retractable awning they can do that without worrying about receiving too much sunlight.
    • Offer privacy by preventing neighbors from looking down to your home.
      Neighbors who live in two story homes or apartment buildings often have a birds’ eye view of what goes on in your backyard, and sometimes, even within your home. A retractable awning gives you the privacy you need and deserve and keeps prying eyes from intruding on your personal life. When an awning is pitched at an angle, it can also obstruct the view of individuals who are at ground level.
    • Enhance the look of your home.
      Awnings are made of durable materials and come in a variety of colors, styles and patterns. Their compact design doesn’t detract from the look when they are rolled up and stored. When they are extended, they not only protect the interior and exterior of the home from excessive amounts of sunlight, they beautify and enhance the look of the home. This can result in an increase in the homes’ value as well as a higher re-sell price if you choose to sell your property.
    • Provides cool, shaded area where children can play outside.
      Children love to play outside. Parents often worry about small children and toddlers getting too much sun. A retractable awning provides a safe place for children to play, and even nap, during the hottest part of the day. Adding an awning to your home gives children the opportunity to be outside for much longer periods without risking their sensitive skin to excessive amounts of sunlight.
    • Allows you to relax outside in the heat of the day.
      During the hottest part of the day, being outside can be extremely uncomfortable. With a retractable awning in place, you can enjoy your patio or porch without worrying about the sun beating down on your shoulders.
    • Protects from rain and heavy downpours.
      A sturdy retractable awning will help protect the family from getting wet if a sudden shower would pop up. Awnings not only keep the porch or patio dry, they prevent water from being blown or sent through window screens. While most people are worried about damage from sunlight, rain can also cause damage and should be considered when choosing an awning.
