As a homeowner, you want to take every measure to ensure that you can maintain and even increase the value of your home. Through ensuring that you keep up with its appearance, plumbing, electrical, and other systems. Another element homeowners should consider residential awnings. It’s not only an investment into the look of your home but also the function. Check out some of the ways residential awnings can impact your home’s value.
It’s no secret that a home’s curb appeal is a top selling point for potential home buyers. It’s the first thing they see and often leaves quite the impression. Adding a residential awning to the home can go a long way toward enhancing the curb appeal and in turn, the home’s value. An awning will provide more visual intrigue with its color and dimension.
Extended Living Space
Adding an awning to your home extends your living space. It does that in two ways. The first is that it allows you to continue spending time outdoors even when it rains. The awning will protect you from the rain and allow you to enjoy a spring or summer day in the fresh air. The second way is that it keeps the sun from beaming directly onto your skin. You’ll feel much more comfortable on your patio or porch under cover of the awning. Using the awning as inspiration, you can create an entire outdoor living space that will work as an extension of the home. This increases its value because it makes more space on the property usable for your everyday lifestyle.
Increased Energy Efficiency
The ability to save on energy expenses is appealing to people in the market to buy a home. Residential awnings help with energy efficiency because of the way they block direct sunlight. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, awnings can block up to 90 percent of solar energy. This can greatly decrease the amount of money you’ll spend on cooling your home in the summer.
