You’re probably at least familiar with awnings for windows and patio use. But are they modern, do they look good, and are they even helpful? From our team at SummerSpace®, the answer is yes, yes, and oh yes! Not only do we seek to make our retractable awnings stylish, but adding our shade solutions to your home will no doubt prove highly beneficial. Here are three ways retractable awnings improve your home.
1. Increase Your Home’s Curb Appeal
No need for a massive home makeover. Add the perfect amount of va-va-voom to your home with the addition of SummerSpace’s stunning retractable awnings. Awnings can give an old home a fresh, new look or give a new house the perfect finishing touch. Choose from more than 100 Tempotest® fabric choices available in solid colors, stripes, tweeds, and linen weave, along with our beautiful assortment of neutral colored frame options. Customize your retractable awnings to perfectly complement (or create) your home’s look and your personal style.
This type of curb appeal not only has others eyeing your home, it can also increase the value of your home. If the time comes to sell your house, the addition of high-quality retractable awnings can help draw in potential buyers.
2. Protect Your Home’s Interior
While keeping the outside of your house looking great, retractable awnings can also protect your home’s interior from the harsh effect of UV rays. With ongoing exposure, UV rays will enter your home throughout the year and wreak havoc on whatever it touches. Over time, the sun can cause significant damage to your furniture, rugs, wall hangings, furnishings, and even the flooring.
The only way to prevent UV rays from causing this harm to your home’s interior is to prevent it from entering through your windows in the first place. Retractable awnings allow you to stop the sun from entering but still allows you to see out and enjoy the view when you’d like. SummerSpace awnings can be easily retracted or extended at the push of a button.
3. Save Big on Energy Costs
No one enjoys paying the energy bill, especially in the summer months when soaring temperatures can cause energy needs to rise. Stop solar heat gain in your home with high-quality retractable awnings. In fact, using awnings over your windows is proven to stop as much as 65% or solar heat gain for south-facing windows and up to 77% for west-facing windows. This will not only lead to significant savings on your monthly bill, but it can also extend the life of your HVAC system by reducing its workload.
