Benefits of Awnings

Updated: April 8, 2022

Pleasant weather marks the time of the year when homeowners crave to be outside entertaining friends and family or relaxing after a hectic workday.

But to be comfortable and carefree, you need a suitable outdoor setting that’s protected from harsh sunlight, extreme temperatures and uncomfortable weather conditions like high winds or rain.

The awnings available today are crafted from durable, weather-resistant fabrics and materials designed to enhance your home’s aesthetic while offering unmatched features including easy maintenance, fire-retardancy, corrosion resistance and overall long-lasting quality.

7 Benefits of Installing an Awning

Some of the many benefits of an awning installation include:

1. A Nicer Looking Home

Awnings are available in a wide variety of attractive colors, styles and patterns that will complement your home’s exterior. The right awning can make your home stand out and significantly enhance its curb appeal. Summer months are often the prime time for inviting guests over to your home for barbeques or other outdoor activities, and an awning on your home can make entertaining a more comfortable and special experience.

2. An Opportunity to Enjoy the Outdoors

Covering a deck or patio with an awning enables you to spend more time outdoors. If you are entertaining guests, you can protect them from high, uncomfortable temperatures and direct sunlight that can lead to painful, unsightly burns.

Unexpected rain showers can often occur in the afternoons at the most inconvenient times, but with an awning, you don’t have to worry about guests getting drenched or having to move your activities indoors.

It can also help you create a private outdoor sanctuary that’s ideal for relaxing at the end of a long day. 

3. A More Flexible Living Space

A retractable awning gives you more control over your living space. You can expand or retract it as you wish to determine the amount of sunshine or shade the area receives at any time. Privacy, in addition to flexible living spaces, is a greatly valued feature for many homeowners.

With an awning, you can add a privacy barrier while lounging outside or protect your interiors from nosy neighbors. If you don’t want an awning extended from your home at all times, you can also enjoy the flexibility and convenience of a retractable awning that folds into a protective unit when not in use or during inclement weather.

4. A Property That’s Better Protected Against UV Rays

.Perhaps you enjoy letting some natural lighting into your home? It is an easy way to brighten your interior spaces, enhance your furnishings and improve your mood while performing tasks inside, but it can also wreak havoc on your interiors.

Ultraviolet light can cause furniture fabric and carpeting to fade and discolor. UV rays are responsible for 45 percent of damage to interior spaces, even on cloudy days.

An awning protects a patio or deck, outdoor furnishings and your home’s exterior from the sun’s damaging UV rays and the effects of prolonged exposure to snow and rain. By doing so, awnings can provide excellent long-term value for your money

5. A Less Expensive Energy Bill

Did you know that you can also save on your energy bills with awnings? They provide shade for your windows and help keep hot air from entering your home.

Direct sunlight entering your home through glass windows and doors can greatly heat up rooms, and this rise in temperature can cause your air conditioning system to work harder and longer to keep your home cool. Home awnings will block those incoming rays from entering your home, while still allowing for peaceful natural lighting, and reducing the amount of heat being transferred inside your house.

Your air conditioning system won’t have to work as hard, which can result in substantial energy savings. According to the Professional Awning Manufacturers Association, an awning can reduce cooling costs by up to 50% in hot climates.

6. An Increased Home Market Value

When you install a new awning on your home, you’re essentially creating additional living space, which increases the perceived and actual value of your home.

The added value of installing an awning and having this comfortable outdoor living space is not only functional and appealing. If you decide to sell your home, many prospective buyers will view an awning as an attractive feature that will increase the value of your property.

7. An Easily Maintainable Source of Shade

Most awnings are simple to care for and maintain. The cleaning process entails brushing off loose dirt and debris, spraying the surface with a cleaning solution of mild soap and water, wiping it with a soft-bristle brush, rinsing the soap residue and allowing the awning to air dry. You won’t have to spend money on professional cleaning services.
