Awning Canopies / August 13, 2019 / Susanne Dejesus
Allocating funds to an awning canopy or cabana design project is a venture that will reap what it sows. In addition to providing current customers with an additional sun-shading feature cabanas canopies and awnings add attractive and eye-catching features to the property. These appealing structures offer an emotional and mental retreat for souls weary from the day-to-day shuffle and physical splendor for eyes tired of the same old neutral colored building. The numbers speak for themselves: Even in this time when popular opinion holds that vacations are on the decline the Bureau of Economic Analysis reported a 3.2 percent increase in travel and tourism spending during the second quarter of 2011 so hopefully the trend holds firm for the second quarter of 2012.
Special events such as weddings and birthdays may also be held in one of these structures. These patios also serve as architectural design to add style to your home s landscape. Yet much as patios provide both comfort and style they need shades and covers. This is where patio awnings are used. Pergolas which are shaded pathways may also be great sources for patio shades. What are Awnings? Patio awnings of course are made specifically for patios. Awnings refer to the actual cover used for these patios. They are often made a canvass of acrylic yarn and at times vinyl. These are laid over wood steel iron metal aluminum and other light materials. Awnings are purposely lightweight to allow sunlight when needed. Unlike permanent roof these coverings may be folded retractable and carried around.
The second reason for canopies is protection against the weather elements. In restaurant patios or cafe outdoor areas a folding arm awning is very popular. You would not want to have a meal in a restaurant patio while you are baking under the sun would you? Having your cold drink outside a cafe is never ideal if you are directly under the sun with no shade. When the rainy season starts getting drenched while having a meal in the restaurant patio or a hot drink outside the cafe is not a pleasing experience. Customers will look for comfort and with canopies you can provide them with just exactly what they are looking for. Another advantage of canopies and other commercial awnings is great savings on cooling costs especially during the hot days of the summer season.
