5 Signs Your Home Needs an Awning

Awnings have proved to be a revolutionary invention, protecting the things we love and making life a little more convenient—and less expensive. But you still don’t have one on your home. Here are five reasons why you should.

1

The color of your furniture is fading.

It is common knowledge that UV rays from sunlight can hurt your eyes and skin, but did you know that it can fade your furniture too? Whether outdoors or indoors, if sunlight is streaming onto your furniture, its color and vibrancy are in danger. Awnings provide needed protection to keep your patio furniture and living room couch shielded from the sun.

Your summer energy costs are through the roof.

Your summer energy costs are through the roof.

Utah summers are hot. Your cooling bill is hotter—your eyes start burning the moment you see that three digit figure. Window awnings block harsh sunlight and prevent solar heat from entering your home, helping to cool it down and your energy bill.

3

Your house has the appearance of being haunted.

Your house has the appearance of being haunted.

You live in a beautiful, historic Utah home, but it’s not inhabited by its previous 18th century owners. Yet, it still looks that way. Liven up the place with a few awnings that match the vintage style of the manor while making it look brand new.

4

You got sunburned again.

You got sunburned again.

You want to be outside. You need to be outside. But you used up an entire bottle of SPF 50 and still got burned. Awnings will let you breathe in the fresh air while protecting you from awful UV exposure.

5

You’re getting rained on.

You’re getting rained on.

You enjoy reading on the patio—but you hate it when a freak Utah storm rolls in. You love the smell of rain—but you hate getting wet. Specially treated canvas awnings are waterproof. They’ll keep off the rain, while still allowing you to read on your porch.
