Keeping sunlight out of a home is an efficient and effective way to regulate temperatures and ensure your home is comfortable. Even if you don t need awnings to cool your home they are great additions to the exterior of a home making it easier to enjoy the outdoors with friends and family. These days newer stronger fabrics are used for awnings so you don t have to worry about the elements taking their toll on the fabric and causing premature fading. The awnings of today are also designed with style in mind. Beautiful fabrics make a wonderful addition to any backyard or patio and you can choose colors and patterns that match your outdoor décor and patio furniture. Not all campers come equipped with camper awnings. Camper awnings can act as a sunshade or shelter from a light rain in many cases.
If you do go for a retractable awning which is generally a good idea in climates which tend to vary between extremes there are further choices. Manual retractable awnings are those which you roll or fold up yourself. Motorized versions have a small electric motor that will do the job with a touch of a button. While motorized awnings seem to offer less work it doesn t always work out that way. Installation is more difficult due to wiring concerns so if you re doing the work yourself it will increase the time it takes you to install the awning. Also with more moving parts the odds of having to perform maintenance and repairs is much greater. Still if you take good care of your awning with preventive maintenance a motorized awning can be a great investment.
