  • 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.

  • 6 Ways Awnings Can Give Your Home a Facelift

    0

    Homeowners are rediscovering the many benefits awnings and retractable covers have to offer. Small awnings can be placed over windows, while larger ones can be used to cover patios and small porches. When they are professionally installed, they become part of the structure of the home and add to its beauty and style. Benefits Of Awnings

    1. Awnings provide shaded areas for recreation.
      Large, retractable awnings can be rolled up to allow the sun to warm an area or rolled down to keep an area cooler during the hot, summer months.
    2. Prevents direct sunlight from entering via windows.
      Awnings that are placed over windows keep sunlight from shining into windows. Direct sunlight can fade carpet and upholstery and raise the temperature indoors.
    3. Don’t let people to be limited!
      Allows people inside the home to see outside without having to look out into the bright light. Looking outside on a bright, sunny day can cause a person’s view to be limited by glare.
    4. Awnings can add color to the exterior of the home.
      Awnings can be made of contrasting colors to accentuate the windows in your home. Designs are also an option to make windows stand out from their surroundings.
    5. Covers blemishes near the windows.
      Older homes may have blemishes near windows and doors. Awnings can be installed in such a way as to hide them and make the home look nice and well-cared for.
    6. Increases the value of your home.
      Awnings are normally attached directly to the home. Because they are designed to be permanent, they can increase the value of your home.

  • Mother’s Day Gift: How About a Colorful Awning for the Patio?

    0

    Even mothers reach a stage where they do not welcome one more knickknack or house plant for Mother’s Day. You can bet that, if you press mom in just the right way, she will admit she would like something different. Maybe she has an awning in mind.

    Create a space
    Retractable awnings, fixed awnings, or retractable sunscreens add color and space to a porch, deck, or patio. Awnings create a solitary space, a place to read and relax in the shade – even in the sunniest of California climates. The awning extends the natural roof line with fabrics in colors, stripes, or patterns to enlarge an existing space or create the illusion of a new space.

    Mother's Day Gift: Colorful Awning

    Customer options
    Maybe mom wants a fixed awning over the front door or accent window treatments? Maybe she would prefer a retractable window awning to reduce heavy sun and glare from her favorite room? Maybe she would like to get more shade under the patio pergola with a retractable skylight awning? Or, maybe she feels there would be so much more room for entertaining if you could just extend the shade of the patio or deck? Regardless of what she needs it for, we have awnings that can cover all of her wants and needs!

    Custom designs
    You can shop alone or bring mom into the decision on size, style, and fabric. You will want to consider the fabric quality, thread durability, retraction mechanics, motor reliability, and size. Some lines are ready to install in standard sizes, but most are custom sized to your space and wishes. And, you may want color that makes the awning pop out from its surroundings or complement and blend nicely with the existing house colors.
