Pros of Retractable Awnings
If your home gets a lot of sun, it can be difficult to spend time on the patio. Fix that by installing retractable awnings. Create shade over your deck and spend more time outside.
By shading one side of your home, the air conditioner won’t have to work as hard to cool the interior, saving money on the electric bill. Retractable awnings also increase the value of your home when it’s time to sell.
Protect Your Home–Inside and Out
Awnings not only protect your outside furniture from the sun, but they also protect your home furnishings from getting bleached out and faded.
Retractable awnings last longer than non-retractable ones. During a storm, the retractable kind adds stability and protection to the awning itself. It won’t be torn from the wind. In addition, when you aren’t using the awning, it can be retracted, preventing sun damage.
Sensors can also be added to retractable awnings so they can automatically retract during rain or wind, protecting your awning when you can’t be home.
Professional Installation is Best
Have your retractable awning professionally installed for the best results. An expert can ensure that it fits the house and that your landscaping won’t be in the way. You’ll be assured that the mountings will support it during harsh environmental conditions.
Once your awning is installed, keep it clean from dirt and dust and make sure that mold isn’t allowed to grow, like after a storm. This way, your investment will last a long time. The main replaceable part that could be a concern, the electric motor, should be kept clean as well, which will help maintain its efficiency.
Retractable awnings add value to your home and life. Your family can enjoy dinner on the patio more often, spending more time outside in the fresh air. Consider adding a retractable awning to your patio.
