Let's Talk Awnings
Use awnings to add shade and cool down your home in the summer.
If you are looking for an attractive way to extend your hours outdoors during warmer weather, adding an awning to your home can be a quick solution that brings shade, protection from the sun, and a cooler home overall.
Different windows require different styles of awnings, but they can be custom built to accommodate each type of window.
- Awning windows are one option that works well in stormy climates. The panes of an awning window open vertically, and when harsh winds arise to as high as 230 mph, the ventilators lift and lock into place.
- If you want a softer, more aesthetic look than aluminum, then canvas awnings present an attractive alternative. The se can be used on both houses and RVs and will provide cool shade in the hot summer heat. They are easily tucked away when not in use and can come in various colors. They are more vulnerable to weather conditions than aluminum awnings and will require more protection. Even still, they are sealed against fading, rot, and mildew, and will protect your patio and windows for many years, trouble-free.
Aluminum awnings installed over your windows and doors can help to keep your house cooler. The aluminum deflects the heat from the sun, helping to prevent it from entering the house through the windows. By deflecting the harmful UV rays, awnings can also help to protect your furniture from fading.
