Patio Design / October 5, 2018 / Giuliana Bundy.
Adding a backyard cover to your patio is attractive and practical. It not only adds ‘curb appeal’ it adds living space and benefit to your house. Local manufacturers will build you a custom awning with your choice of color, fabric, also size. Shelters are great for year-round protection for your porch furniture and your patio itself. If you add side awnings, you can like the extra space all year.
An awning can reduce your energy consumption by 25% in the summer and keep your back door free of snow in the winter. Your air conditioning system won’t have to work as hard since the awning keeps the sun away from the windows.
Most heating and cooling lost through windows. When the sun heats the outside of the window, that heat transferred into your house. An awning blocks direct sunlight, keeping your windows approximately twenty degrees cooler.
Benefits of adding an awning:
- Beauty: Today’s shelters are much more attractive and durable than they used to be. Manufacturers are using more imagination, different types of fabrics and a wide variance of colors in their designs and you can choose and create an awning to suit your taste. Since your canopy is custom made, you want the exact model and the color scheme you need.
- Savings and Protection: You won’t have to replace or refinish your outdoor furniture or your patio tiles nearly as often.
- Affordable: Local manufacturers will custom build an awning for you at a section of the price of adding a sunroom, but with all of the benefits.
- Additional living space: Adding an awning makes your patio more bearable in the summer. With side panels, it is like adding another room. Add the convenience of a remote controlled retractable awning, and you can adjust the ‘room’ any way you like, easily with the push of a switch, no more cranking as with the older models.
Today’s awnings are not like the awnings of yesterday; they are a masterpiece of modern design. Locally manufactured and custom built with the added benefit of a remote control.
