Explore the benefits of adding a new awning to your home.

No matter the season or the style of your home, you can always benefit from adding a new awning. Awnings can be easy and stylish solutions to numerous problems and add a unique appearance to any home that improves your property’s appearance and value. At the same time, a new awning can be an excellent investment that provides you savings over time. If you want to learn more about what adding a new awning can do for your home, read on for the most significant benefits. 

Improved Home Aesthetics

New awnings come in various styles, colors, patterns, and materials, so you can always find a design that matches your home’s style. The design experts at Carroll Architectural Shade can provide guidance on which awning may suit your home best. 

Awnings can improve your home’s curb appeal, which is useful if you ever decide to sell your home. Any home feature that can provide a good first impression and make your house stand out is always a good thing. 

Home Energy Savings

Adding a new awning provides excellent shade, which cuts down on passive home heating. Less passive heating means lower cooling bills and more money in your pocket. If you can’t place awnings above every door or window, placing them on the south-facing side is the best way to block the most sun and control your home temperatures. 

Weather Protection 

Awnings help protect your home’s doorways, windows, and foundation from excess rainwater by funneling it away from your house. In severe storms, awnings can also keep hail away from windows. Additionally, awnings can protect the furniture and valuables in your home that are near windows or placed outside. The awning blocks direct sunlight from shining down on these items and potentially fading valuable belongings.

Pet-Friendly Features

If you have a family dog, they likely enjoy sitting outside frequently. However, a hot porch or patio can hurt their paws. By adding a new awning that covers your porch or patio, you can create a cool and comfortable space for your pets. The awning will also provide shade for you, so you can enjoy time outside with your dog without getting overheated yourself. 

Create a Larger Living Space

Adding a new awning can help you enjoy your backyard more. If you have wanted an outdoor living space but have put it off because of the heat and sun that make the outdoors uncomfortable, awnings can help. You can install various awnings, including standalone awnings that do not need to be attached to the side of your house.
