Benefits of Retractable Awnings

If you’re looking to improve the look of your backyard while not breaking the bank, you should really look into getting a retractable awning. They come in a wide variety of styles and colors to fit your home’s aesthetic. But their use goes far beyond just adding a pop of color to your yard. There are plenty of benefits of retractable awnings in terms of protection and convenience.

Benefits of Retractable Awnings:

Maximize Shade Areas

Isn’t it upsetting when you’re enjoying a nice day in the yard with loved ones, but the scorching sun forces you to head inside early? With a retractable awning, you can create a more shaded area in your yard, so everyone can spend more time outside, enjoying the weather without worrying about the heat or getting burned.

Control the Amount of Sunlight

Another one of the benefits of retractable awnings is their ability to block sunlight from shining into rooms of your home. Especially if you have an encased patio, you can extend your awning to stop sunlight from hitting the room and prevent that space from becoming too hot.

Reduce Energy Usage and Cost

Your retractable awning can help lower your heating and cooling costs throughout the year. During the colder months, retract the awning to allow the sunshine to warm the room. During summer, extend it to block out sunlight. Both of these actions help keep you from overusing your HVAC system and therefore save you money. 

Add Beauty to Your Home

Since retractable awnings have streamlined styles, they don’t need additional poles to hold them in place when extended. This not only makes for a better and more aesthetically-pleasing design, but it prevents anyone from tripping over or walking into the poles. They’re also available in a number of colors and designs to fit the needs of any home style, big or large. Enjoy stripes? We can have it matched to your home. If you’re more of a solid color person, that’s available too. When choosing an awning, the process is quick and easy in order to make sure that it’s exactly what you want.

Easy Installation

The ease of installation is great! Retractable awnings take up little to no room, and won’t interfere with your gutter system. If you’re worried about it sagging due to possible buildup, the option is always there to have a gutter helmet installed to repel and dirt and debris away from your new investment!
