Retractable awnings give you the best of both worlds. They’re there when you need them, and can retract when you don’t. Everyone can benefit from the beauty and function of these awnings, but before you choose one it’s best to set your mind on the proper size. Here are two major tips we suggest you consider:  

Know the purpose

Are you looking to extend your outdoor space? Want a solution that will cool off your home? Whichever the purpose, you’ll want to know the reason behind installing an awning before you actually have one installed. If the purpose is to extend your outdoor space, you’ll want it large enough to cover your patio or deck area. If it’s primary use is to shade your home from the hot sun, the measurements will be different.

Measure deck/patio or storefront

 Whether your awning is for your home or business, your next step is to measure the area around it. By that, we mean know the width and length of your deck, patio, storefront, or restaurant. No awning should be too large or too small and is completely dependent upon the size of the space it covers.

We will help you every step of the way, from the brainstorming process to installation and maintenance. There’s no project too big or small that we are not ready to take on.

Before deciding whether or not to install an awning, you might be pondering the benefits. Truth is, many homeowners don’t realize the value in awnings. As your Fairfield County Awning experts, we’re here to share a little more insight with you - just in case you’re on the fence.  

 

Quality

Choose a quality material such as vinyl for your awning. When you choose a quality awning, you can save energy and money when properly installed, which prospective buyers will appreciate.  

Style

An awning makes your home more aesthetically appealing, increasing your home's value. This is especially true for those who install a retractable awning - one you can hide when you want and roll out when you need extra shade and sun or rain protection.


Function

An awning has several functions. Not only does it expand your space, but it also acts as a quiet, shady area for you to relax outside. From cutting UV rays to keeping you cool and dry, the benefits are endless. And with so many materials and colors to choose from, an awning can also add to your curb appeal.
