Best Uses for Awnings

Many homes and businesses in the Fort Collins area consider awnings an essential type of outdoor shading system. Awnings are versatile and available in a variety of styles and colors that will enhance the appeal of any property. There are many other benefits and uses for awnings:

Cut Heating and Cooling Costs

Significantly reducing heating and cooling costs can be achieved for your home or business through the use of awnings. Awnings are a great option for warmer months and in the Summer, because they reduce heat gain by 77 percent. Awnings also are great for preventing the sun’s rays from hitting doors and windows.  This outdoor shading system also helps air conditioners run more efficiently, saving your money on your utility bill.

Protect Furniture

If you have expensive furniture and decorations in your home, you want to do everything you can to protect them from any sun damage.  Awnings are a vital solution to prevent UV ray damage or fading to furniture, flooring, and curtains.

Increase Curb Appeal

Awnings are an affordable way to add curb appeal to any home or business. We offer a variety of styles and colors of awnings from the industry’s top manufacturers that can complement any architecture or homeowner’s taste. Awnings also help attract customers to your business.

Enhance Outdoor Living Areas

Patios and decks look great with awnings. Not only do they add style to your outdoor living area, but they are also functional. Awnings allow you and the family to enjoy time spent outdoors, providing shade on sunny days. Awnings can also significantly reduce the outdoor temperature during warm summer months. On rainy days, homeowners can also take refuge under their awnings and stay dry.
