Attractive Awnings for Your Home
The warmer months of summer will soon be here. In Wilmington summer is a time of year for outdoor activities with family and friends. One way we can enjoy the outdoors even more during these warm summer months is to install outdoor window and patio awnings. Awnings can be the solution in helping make your outdoor space your favorite place.
The Benefits of Having an Awning
Awnings for your home have several benefits. When installed they can reduce the sun’s heat depending on the location of your window by up to 77%, which can save you money on your electric bills.
Awnings can also add noticeable value and curb appeal to your home.
They create a shaded environment that can give added protection to plants, furnishings both inside and outside the home, and provide a cool and comfortable place to entertain our friends and family.
Before Installing an Awning:
When making the decision to install awnings there are several factors to consider. Since awnings will add to the overall look of your home it is important to consider not only the style, but also color and design of the fabric so it will attract and not detract from your home and outside environment.
Sunbrella offers a wide variety of new easy care fabrics that resist fading, are stain resistant, and can be easily cleaned with mild soap and water. Some of the latest in fabric color and design from Sunbrella include the zebra stripe Botswana, a solid yellow Buttercup, and a cool Chateau Plaid in blue and white.
Give unique style to your outdoor living area by adding accessories such as pillows and cushions in a contrasting color.
Select manual or motorized operation using a remote control or switch, depending on your needs and budget. Retractable awnings are popular because they can provide complete coverage for protection and privacy or retract completely to let just the right amount of sun in.
