Energy Saving - Today's awnings offer many benefits and one of the greatest benefits is energy savings. Exterior fabric window awnings can reduce interior heat in homes and businesses during periods of direct sunlight. Since awning fabric doesn't trap heat and moisture, an awning can reduce air-conditioning costs by as much as 25%.
No Construction Hassles - Installing awnings, particularly patio covers and cabanas, is like adding a room to your house or commercial structure without the cost, mess and down-time of a construction project. No general contractor or architect is required.
Weather Protection - Awnings protect carpets, furniture, draperies, inventories, windows and doors from both sun and rain damage. In addition, awnings provide more comfortable living and working spaces, both inside and outside your home or building, as they keep temperatures down in the summer and keep surfaces dry in the winter. This results in both improved usage of existing space and reduced energy costs.
Aesthetic Appeal - Many awnings are designed and purchased solely for their decorative appeal while awnings required for functional purposes can always be designed to be beautiful. Awnings are timeless, elegant and fit seamlessly into all styles ranging from traditional to rustic to modern and beyond.
Low Maintenance - Other than occasional light cleaning, awnings are nearly maintenance-free. Solution-dyed acrylic fabrics are water-tight, fade-resistant, and rot-resistant. Galvanized steel is guaranteed not to rust and powder-coated aluminum has a lifetime finish.
Extend Outdoor Living - Awnings also can extend residential living space and add safety and comfort to outdoor activities. A fixed awning or canopy creates an elegant, upscale outdoor living room; perfect for entertaining guests or simply relaxing with the family. With the push of a button, a retractable awning creates an instantly cool and relaxing haven from the sun's rays.
