Let’s go over a few more of those benefits, which may help you in narrowing down your decision on investing in a retractable awning.
ENJOY THE OUTDOORS WHILE LEAVING YOUR HOUSE COOL
Having a retractable awning makes for a great way to keep money in your pocket when it gets hot out in the summer months. You have the option to use your awning on days with a high UV index, resulting in a cooler indoors when you need some time to escape the heat. Having your house protected from the sun can also reduce cooling energy by around 25%, according to the Professional Awning Manufacturers Association.
GET MORE LIFE OUT OF YOUR OUTDOOR FURNITURE
No matter the material of your furniture, the benefits of being protected by the elements when using a retractable awning allow for a longer lifespan. Your upholstery can be protected from cracking or drying up from baking in the sun while mold, oxidation or rust can be prevented as your retractable awning repels water away.
YOU DON’T HAVE TO SACRIFICE YOUR VIEW
Summer is a beautiful time that allows you to enjoy warm weather and the great outdoors. Retractable awnings don’t make you sacrifice your views for some shade. With no bulky poles in your way, there is always a chance to indulge any beautiful summer or fall view from both inside your home and outdoors. A retractable awning simply gives you the option to block the sun whenever you see it fit, never your view.
GET A LONG LIFE OUT OF YOUR RETRACTABLE AWNING
Retractable awnings are built with strong frames and durable custom materials. With the option to put the awning away whenever you can ensure the integrity of your retractable awning especially when it’s stored properly for the winter.
If you notice some heavy snow coming in the winter, or some strong winds there is no need to cross your fingers and hope it holds up. Simply retract your awning for safekeeping.
