    Reasons to Invest in an Outdoor Awning

    Last updated 2 days 15 hours ago

    San Diego is remarkably comfortable during the summer, especially when compared to nearby cities such as Los Angeles and Phoenix. But even a beautiful summer’s day in San Diego can feel sweltering if the sun beats down on your long enough. To stay comfortable while you enjoy the weather outside this summer, invest in an outdoor awning. Besides offering respite from the sun, outdoor awnings offer many other benefits. Here is a closer look at some of the top reasons to invest in a new canvas awning.

    Provides a Cool, Shady Area

    If you have a deck or patio, a retractable outdoor awning will provide a cool, shady area to relax or entertain friends and family during the day. It can be up to 15 degrees cooler in the shade, which means you and your guests will stay comfortable even on the most unusually warm days with a new outdoor awning overhead.

    Protects Patio Fabrics and Furniture

    In addition to keeping you comfortable, an outdoor awning will also protect your outdoor belongings. Awnings protect patio fabrics and furniture from the damaging effects of the sun. If you have a fixed awning installed on your home, it will also protect your patio furniture from rain. An awning does such a good job protecting furniture from the elements that you might not be limited to using “outdoor” furniture only.

    Increases the Value of Your Home

    Whatever you invest in your new outdoor awning you can expect to make back when you sale your home. A retractable awning is incredibly practical, and any potential homebuyer will love the convenience of having shade at the touch of a button.

    Preventing Sun Damage to Your Outdoor Fabrics

    Even though patio fabrics are designed to withstand the elements better than other types of materials, they can still acquire sun damage after long periods outside. For patio chairs, umbrellas, hammocks, and canvas chairs, use an outdoor fabric protector to keep the fabric from fading or cracking. Some patio fabric protectors also provide protection from moisture, dirt, and staining. Of course, a custom awning or solar screen is another great way to protect your outdoor fabrics while also adding shade and comfort to your patio.
