Awning Ideas / February 18, 2019 / Leann Parker
Awnings don t require poles (which would clutter the view) since they are attached with spring-loaded mounts. The "retractable" type of awnings differ from basic immobile awnings in that they last longer (can be rolled up in damaging weather) and allow a space to be used in a variety of ways--both drinks in the shade and stargazing for example. On the large end of the spectrum awnings today can be upwards of 30 feet in width and around 14 feet in depth. They are controlled automatically via weather sensors or a remote control button or by hand using a manual crank. Either way these awnings can be unfurled or retracted in less than a minute. What are the practical implications of this? When you want to cool an area down like a concrete poolside or overheated deck shade is just seconds away.
On top of this awnings result in direct energy savings. Installed strategically they make the inside of a building up to 15 degrees cooler cutting direct sunlight and shading windows. This reduces glare by 94 percent and can cut utility bills by over 30 percent. So in the long run awnings pay for themselves. Probably the most pressing issue here is What are "retractable awnings?" If you re willing to listen to me answer the question you probably have some idea about the advantages of retractable awnings even though they are just now starting to show up in the consumer consciousness. In this article I ll discuss the factors that are causing awnings to attract a growing base of customers--including frequent return customers and referrals. Let s start with the basics. So what exactly are they? Chances are that you have the basic idea right: an awning is a custom-sized piece of waterproof material that is stretched on an aluminum or steel frame and installed on a building s roof or wall.
The awning color goes well with white home exteriors. Also you can consider it if your exterior paint has different shades of yellow in it. It is also a good idea to complement your pale yellow exterior paint by installing a mustard yellow awning. Brown: While evaluating the shades of brown awning you must ensure that it adds dimensions to your home exterior paint. Also you can consider creating a seamless transition between the color of your exterior paint and the brown awning. For those who are regularly out and about in their four wheel drive pulling over for lunch is usually controlled by where you can set the vehicle up. You want somewhere that offers shade is out of the wind and out of the way! However with the popularity of 4WD Awnings taking off you may have a much easier solution! 4WD Awnings pull out from the side or rear of your vehicle and set up in a few minutes providing instant protection from the weather.
