By controlling sunlight you ll find yourself getting more use out of the amenities and spaces you already own: poolside deck balcony patio; grill gazebo outdoor bar hot tub. But there s more. Awnings act as an extension of your home adding square footage to your home or commercial building. They allow you to expand the look and feel of your interior into the outdoors serving as an architectural addition but without the typical costs. No contractor or expensive installation is required. In the residential setting this results in outdoor space for entertaining relaxing and eating. In the business setting it means additional room to seat patrons serve customers or hold meetings. In both cases the "outdoor rooms" end up adding value to the business or home. 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.
