Purchasing a new home awning? Consider these factors first.

If you’re considering purchasing a new home awning this year, there are a few factors to consider to make sure that you purchase the best awning for your needs. The most important factors are how you intend to use your awnings, what kind of maintenance you want to perform, how much you would like to spend, and which awning design you would prefer. When you work with the designers at Carroll Architectural Shade, you benefit from expert advice that can guide you through each of these decisions. Read on to consider how material, maintenance, and design considerations can influence your enjoyment of your new awning.


There are many awning materials to choose from when creating permanent awnings for your home. One of the most popular is solution-dyed Acrylic fabric, which is tightly woven and can often be found in a number of patterns and solid colors. Another popular material is vinyl, which can be waterproof and very durable. When selecting your new home awning, you have a variety of materials available to consider to suit the size of your awning and the weather conditions of your area. 


It is essential to treat your awnings with care throughout every season so you can enjoy the awning for years to come. In Maryland, we experience a variety of hot and cold weather, so you will have to remain diligent about your awning care. For instance, most awnings should be retracted during the winter, so heavy ice or snow does not build up on the awning material. During humid summers, you should also make sure the awning is not at risk for growing mildew. Regular cleanings can help avoid these problems. When selecting your new home awning, you can find one that requires the maintenance level you are comfortable with.
