Awning Canopies / August 13, 2019 / Nora Parker
Ask them which brands are great to consider and which ones to stay away from. Also make sure that you take the time to check all the different shops to compare prices. Just because something is on sale doesn t mean that it s the best product out there. There might be a slightly more expensive brand but is significantly packed with more features - go for that one. You may have to shell out a little extra cash but you re getting more than your money s worth in terms of features. Finally measure the size of the space you will be needing shade for. This will determine the overall size of the product you need which you need to have along with you when you scour for the canopy. Whether you re considering adding an awning to a poolside hotel patio or a series of cabanas to a beachside resort selecting the right company and following certain procedures will guarantee the success of your new awning canopy or cabana design purchase and/or installation.
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.
A roof like structure can be less expensive than building a porch by attaching a retractable awning canopy over the patio area with little maintenance. The patio location should allow easy access to and from the indoor kitchen areas so the flow of people between is natural and direct without walking through another room or space. The flow of traffic will depend on the exact attachment and coverage of the patio retractable awning and the proximity between the patio and house. Access to the kitchen and location of the exterior doors will help in determining the preferred placement of the patio and attachment of the retractable awning. The awning comes in several standard sizes and numerous patterns and colors. The canopy material is water resistant and blocks the sun UV rays and lasts for years if properly maintained.
