5 Reasons a Retractable Awning Makes a Great Gift

December 19, 2022

The holiday season is in full swing. But this year is different and calls for a different kind of gift to uplift your home and the people who live there. That’s why you should put a retractable awning on your shopping list.

A Retractable Awning: The Gift That Keeps on Giving

Between the public health conditions, the social climate, and the economic changes, the past few years have been turbulent, to say the least. It’s time to forgo the usual sweater, cookie, and digital exchange for something that will both beautify your home and encourage your household to spend more quality time together in your favorite outdoor spaces.

With a retractable awning, you’ll add elegance and function to your backyard sanctuary. An awning from SummerSpace® will prove especially impressive. Here are just a few reasons why.

1. Comfortable Outdoor Entertainment

A retractable awning is an excellent gift for anyone who loves spending time outdoors. So for all those days that you wish you could have dined al fresco with the family on your patio this past summer, a new awning can make that fantasy a reality in the future.

SummerSpace retractable awnings have been shown to reduce the space underneath them by as much as 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Moreover, they block up to 99 percent of UV rays. Therefore, when you sit beneath one of our awnings, you can rest assured that everyone and everything under it will be comfortable and protected.

2. Beauty and Flair

A high-quality awning looks even more stunning than any wrapping paper you could throw around it. SummerSpace awnings are clear leaders in this area. 

Our retractable awnings are made with Italian marine-grade Tempotest® fabric. This gives you the option to customize the look with over 100 different colors and patterns, depending on your awning of choice. From solid colors to stripes to textured tweeds, we have a variety that can accommodate any aesthetic. With this kind of beauty between you and the sunlight, you’ll enjoy your outdoor sanctuary even more.

3. Something the Whole Family Can Enjoy

How often do you come across a gift that the whole family can use? A retractable awning is one of those rare gems. It’s easy to use and can be enjoyed by people of all ages.

Whether you want to host a cookout, have a space to lounge after a lovely swim, or set up a game of ping pong, your awning lets you get so much more use out of your home’s outdoor areas. Use it to your advantage and gather the whole family beneath it for a variety of fun activities.

4. Add Value to Your Home

A retractable awning can also be a sound investment in your home’s overall value. Think of all the homes that catch your eye. What is it that makes them so attractive? When you think about it, there are probably multiple elements that contribute to its overall curb appeal.

This is where a retractable awning comes in handy. Through its visual impact and its ability to maximize your use of an outdoor area, it can add real value to your home. This is especially true when you have a customizable awning from SummerSpace. Our installers will work with you to create the perfect size and colors to match your home.

5. Built to Last

Yes, a retractable awning is a unique gift, but how long will it last? A SummerSpace awning is built to stand the test of time. The aluminum hardware on each awning is finished with our SummerShield™ 2604 aluminum powder coating which has been tested to exceed the industry standard 3000 hour salt fog treatment. Therefore, you can count on your awning to deliver beauty and comfort year after year.

Once your holiday shopping list is finalized, get in touch with a SummerSpace dealer near you. They’ll help you play Santa with a customized retractable awning that the whole family will enjoy.
