Awning Ideas / February 23, 2019 / Susanne Dejesus
Likewise when rain disturbs your outdoor plans--there s no reason to run inside. If you want to tan in the direct sun or take advantage of some heat on a cold fall day the awning can be rolled up just as quickly. When stored retractable awnings take up about six inches of horizontal space on the side of a building. Installed at a downward angle they need to be attached at least seven and a half feet off the ground. All right we ve covered "What are they?" Now let s deal quickly with the benefits that awnings give home and business owners. What can retractable awnings do for you? Obviously they give you a way to control the elements and this is more than an aesthetic pleasure since it preserves furniture from bleaching and lowers utility bills.
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.
If your restaurant is not a part of any multi-billion dollar franchise you probably have to make decisions regarding every aspect of the restaurant: from the menu to the tablecloth color to the logo design. Often what makes or breaks a restaurant comes down to two priorities: food quality and décor. The way your restaurant s interiors are designed and maintained will have a huge impact on the customers liking it in the first visit and coming back for more and more. And one way to ensure a helpful sprucing up includes proper awnings shade structures and canopies. For one thing awnings and commercial shade structures are all about making a first impression. Remember that long before a restaurant patron has taken their first bite of bread or sipped their first cocktail they ve already surveyed the exterior of the building.
