Top Five Benefits of Adding an Awning to Your HomefLHUKzCghl
1. Protection from the Sun
Awnings provide protection from up to 98% of harmful UV rays, reducing the sun’s effect on your patio and exterior. Window awnings can even offer protection for your indoor carpeting, wood flooring and furnishings, as well as reduce the sun’s glare on your television and computer screens.
2. Prevent Water Damage
Similar to the way they protect your property from the sun, awnings can also prevent damage from rain, snow, flooding, hail and other adverse weather. Installing one can direct precipitation away from your home, protecting your property from the impact that can cause rot, mold and other damage.
3. Reduce Your Energy Consumption
Depending on the size and location of your awning, it can help to reduce the heat of your indoor space by 60-75 percent. This is an effective way to reduce your energy consumption and, ultimately, lower your bill.
4. Extend Your Living Space
By adding an awning to your deck or patio, you are able to extend the living and entertainment space of your home. No matter the season or weather, you’re able to enjoy the outdoors.
5. Increase the Market Value of Your Home
A custom awning can increase your home’s curb appeal and even its market value! Similar to shutters and curtains, awnings can add character to the exterior of your home. This combined with all of the practical benefits of awnings makes them appealing to homebuyers. Check out our past blog to find out which awning style is right for your home!
