Is An Awning Worth It? Answer: Yes.
ADDITIONAL SPACE FOR ENTERTAINING
Awnings add more living and entertaining space to your home without the stress of major construction. You can customize the area to your liking and invite guests over on a sunny summer day without making them sit in the sun. No more scrambling for an umbrella whenever it starts raining! Instead, you’ll entertain comfortably and happily outdoors.
RAISE YOUR HOME VALUE
Adding an awning over your patio, deck, or backyard will also increase the value of your home. Since they add liveable space, they add a little extra to your home’s value. They also add a great deal of curb appeal for any homeowners that are looking for outdoor space where they can enjoy fun in the shade instead of fun in the sun.
PROTECT YOUR BELONGINGS
The sun is a dominant heat source and source of ultraviolet rays. Adding an awning to your home will also prevent the sun from fading or damaging your furniture, both inside and outside. The sun can fade expensive investments like hardwood flooring and carpeting if you allow it to. An awning can protect your skin and your home from harmful ultraviolet rays.
LOWER ENERGY COSTS
When the summer months roll around, the number of energy expense in most homes is air conditioning. What heats your home up in the summer? It's the same thing that heats everything up – the sun. By providing shade and restricting the amount of natural sunlight that gets into your home, a retractable awning naturally cools the home and makes your central air or air conditioning unit use less energy to do its job.
Of course, there may be times when you actually want the sun to warm your home a bit. In wintertime, for instance. Once the colder season comes, your awning can retract, letting the sunshine in and making your home heating costs a little lighter in the process.
Between energy savings, long lifespan, and the benefits to quality of life that retractable awnings can confer, it seems safe to say that they're worth every penny. Of course value is ultimately subjective, but if you like saving money and having a nice time in the summer, it seems like an awning would justify its cost no problem.
