Most homeowners are always looking for ways to improve the value of their homes. Your home value can determine how much your home can sell for if you move, and maintaining your home can help keep a generally high neighborhood value. Property value is determined by things like your home’s appearance, how much usable outdoor space it has, and how many appealing features are included. So what exactly can your home awning installation do to boost your property value? Read on to learn more about what a new Carroll Architectural Shade product can provide.
Awnings Increase Your Usable Yard Space
Under an awning, you can place your deck, tables, chairs, or entire patio area. This can turn your previously unused outdoor space into a comfortable, welcoming space. Your awning provides shade and protection from the weather, making the space underneath much more usable.
Awnings Reduce Your Air Conditioning Costs
A home awning installation can reduce air conditioning costs by absorbing the sunlight and preventing it from entering your home directly. Placing awnings over windows or doors that receive direct sunlight all day long can make a significant difference by blocking that direct light that normally enters your home and increases the temperature. When your interior temperatures stay lower, you don’t need to use your air conditioning nearly as much.
Awnings Help Your Gardening and Landscaping
Your new awning can help keep your plants or shrubs cool during the harsher summer months. A large awning installation over your patio can provide you with additional gardening or landscaping space and add extra style to your outdoor space. Many shade plants grow best in indirect sunlight, so placing them under your awning may, in fact, be best.
Awnings Make Your Home Attractive to Buyers
If you are preparing to sell your home in the future, awnings may provide an extra appeal that gives your home a competitive advantage. Buyers are often attracted to homes with appealing exteriors, and beautiful, functional awning will do a lot to make a positive impression.
Remember These Tips When Designing Your Awning
As you design your new home awnings with Carroll Architectural Shade, remember these helpful tips for creating your ideal awnings:
- Choose high-quality awning materials that can withstand the elements.
- Consider how your awning color fits in with your home design.
- Think about how you plan to use your awning – year-round or seasonally? This can help you determine whether a fixed or retractable awning is best.
- Look at examples. If your neighbors already have awnings, you can see what does or doesn’t work with a home like yours.
