Aesthetics and Functionality with Patio Awnings

By John James Subscribe to RSS | February 23rd 2012 | Views:

An aesthetic home should also be comfortable to live in no matter how harsh the weather is outside. Patio awnings and window shutters provide the economical solution for this. They can add excitement, value and enjoyment to your property while helping in protecting against the sun’s harsh glare.


Patio awnings come in an amazing number of structural configurations. You can also try customized retractable awnings if you feel the need for it. These awnings can be fitted on your home’s exterior walls. They can be easily extended or made to move in forward or reverse directions. In some patio awnings, manual movements are used for the open fold actions while others come with motors for this purpose.

Retractable awnings are offered with metallic arms along with loaded springs. Arm movement is controlled with the help of a gear box.

Window shutters help to keep out extreme heat and humidity. They can be custom crafted to ensure crack and split free products for a superior shelf life. These shutters are available in a wide variety of designs including plantation shutters that give an enduring and classic feel. They are available in hardwood, poly satin compounds and composite hybrids for greater durability.


Awnings are the simple and stylish way to make your house look beautiful while offering unmatched protection against adverse elements of nature such as rain, snow or heat. With remote controlled awnings, you never have to worry about opening and folding them. You can let in as much sunshine as you want. The canopies are found in a wide range of fabric designs and colors. You can choose from traditional white and green striped ones to colors that will match your property exteriors.


With patio awnings, you don’t have to invest a large number to get respite from the extreme heat and overpowering light. They block the sun’s rays before they get a chance to reach your window, door or porch. Heat is stopped from touching the surface of the floor. Thus, heat and UV rays are controlled in a better way than by the use of glazed windows and blinds.

Retractable awnings can help to lower your air-conditioning bills by almost 70% because they reduce both outside and inside temperatures. Besides this, they also offer protection to expensive furnishings from the glaring heat and UV rays.

Patio awnings in the end helps save on air conditioning and electricity bills. Now, isn’t that a colorful way to earn some savings?
