5 benefits of fabric awnings…maybe one or two you did not think of yet!

For years homeowners have installed awnings and since it’s humble beginnings, it has undergone a dramatic transformation to ensure that its functionality does not compromise on style and design.

From the retractable awning to the various different styles, there are many options and benefits.

1.Transform your outside area

When the additional entertainment space is required, the awning is extended and it allows for extra sun protection and a thermal comfort to enjoy the outdoors with your friends and family. When you are finished entertaining outdoors, you can simply retract the awning and allow more sunlight to enter your home and even have a better view of your garden from the inside.

2. Awnings can add value to your home

Placing awnings over a patio area or around your home creates more liveable space- and consequently increases your value of your home. They bring more appeal to homeowners that want an outdoor space to relax and enjoy the warm, sunny weather, without the worry of the direct sun.

3. Awnings can reduce energy costs – in summer and winter!

Awnings that are installed over windows and doors, will reduce the amount of direct sun rays and heat, which will save you cooling costs in summer. If you choose retractable awnings, your savings can go even further. These awnings can be drawn in, which in turn allows the sun to assist in warming your home during the winter months, thus reducing heating costs!
