Why Retractable Awnings Have Become So Popular
People have been adding outdoor shades to their homes and businesses for centuries, and fabric canopies have often been favored because they’re available in a vast array of colors and styles. In recent years, fabric awnings have become even more popular because they can be crafted for retraction and extension. Retractable awnings provide a wealth of benefits, including:
- The option of enjoying sun when you want it and shade when you don’t
- Improved energy efficiency, as you can extend your awning to prevent intense solar heat from penetrating windows and glass doors in the summer but retract it in the winter to welcome the sun’s warmth inside
- A better view of the outdoors than a fixed awning provides because there are no poles or vertical supports to get in your way
- The ability to retract your awning out of harm’s way during powerful wind events and inclement weather
Many of our customers also opt for the convenience of adding motorized control to their retractable awnings, so they can be extended and retracted at the touch of a button.
Areas Covered By Retractable Awnings
Homeowners can have retractable awnings installed around their homes to create a shady space for a variety of areas. Some of the places you can have a top-of-the-line retractable awning installed on your home include:
- Front porch: This is a stylish option to keep your guests in the shade as they approach your home. You can also keep your delivered packages out of direct sunlight.
- Patio: Create a covered entertainment space on your back patio. For those unbearably hot days, enjoy the outdoors without the risk of getting a sunburn. You can always retract your awning on cooler days when you want to feel the warmth of the sunlight.
- Windows: With retractable awnings over your windows, you’ll be able to control the amount of heat transferred into your home. If you want more natural light to enter your home, you can retract your awning to minimize the amount of coverage.
Meanwhile, commercial business owners can also benefit from having retractable awnings installed around their buildings. A few of the common places top-quality retractable awnings are installed on commercial buildings include:
- Entryway: Add a welcoming shady space to the front of your commercial building with a retractable awning. This can also be a pop of color feature for the front of your business.
- Outdoor seating area: Whether you own a restaurant with outdoor seating or are interested in building a seating area outside for your customers or employees, a retractable awning is a great solution for providing a covered space.
- Walkways: Create a shady outdoor walkway for your customers and employees with a retractable awning that attaches along the side of your building.
- Windows: By covering your windows from direct sunlight, you will minimize the amount of heat entering your commercial building, while still allowing some natural light to shine into your commercial building whenever you please.
