Many homes have decks or patios that rarely get used because it is uncomfortable to spend time on a hot and unprotected outdoor living space. Instead the outdoors in the summertime, families are forced to stay inside to escape the elements.
Another issue that comes with summer is rising electricity bills. Windows and doors that face the sun can quickly heat up the house when the afternoon heat rules around. Because of this, many people’s cooling bills start to rise, and furniture unprotected from the rays can fade.
An attractive and affordable solution to these issues lies in the form of an awning. Retractable and stationary awnings are great additions to patios, doorways, and windows.
