Awnings are a great way to add curb appeal to your home because they can add a unique beauty and charm to the exterior of your home, while enhancing the function of your home.
Awnings can help you enjoy your outdoor activities no mater rain or shine. They can help your home avoid excessive heat and sun exposure. Awnings can also save you from high-energy bills by controlling shade and light exposure upon your deck, window, patio, terrace and balcony.
Awnings can even protect the interior of your home such as your carpet, furniture and drapes by blocking UV Rays from entering your home through windows that bring in direct sunlight that fades your carpet and furniture.
How To Position Awnings To Protect Your Home From The Elements
For your home to enhance its curb appeal and protect itself from the elements, you need to make sure your awning face appropriate directions. For example, awnings can reduce the interior temperatures of your home when warm weather happens between 8 to 15 degrees, while reducing your air conditioning energy costs. If your awnings are placed on south facing windows, you can reduce solar heat gain by 65 percent. If your awnings are placed on the west facing windows, you could reduce solar heat gain by 77 percent.
What Kinds Of Awnings Are Available?
Awnings come in three types of structures – stationary, freestanding and retractable. The traditional awnings are able to have sides, be open, and their pitch can be adjusted. A standard awning is usually made to be half the height of your window. For example, if you have windows measured on your home at 48” in height, your awnings would have a 24” projection.
Awnings are mounted on both window frames and exterior wall to keep the awnings leveled. If awnings cannot be mounted to window frames or exterior walls, they are mounted on roof brackets.
