If you want to improve the value of your home for any reason, a new awning can help you do just that. Awnings can not only enhance the appearance of your home but increase its overall quality. These accessories create more usable space on the property, contribute to energy savings, and enhance the functionality of your yard. Read on to learn more about what new awnings can do to boost your home’s value.
New Awnings Increase Your Usable Yard Space
You can use a new awning to enclose part of your yard and make more of your outdoor space usable and comfortable. You can place these products above your deck or patio and place tables, chairs, and other lounge furniture and outdoor hobbies underneath.
If you have a beautiful outdoor deck or patio that routinely goes unused because the sun is too hot or because the furniture gets wet from rainfall, you aren’t getting enough out of your home. Adding new awnings can improve your enjoyment of your home. If you decide to sell your home in the future, usable outdoor space will be a considerable attraction to buyers.
Reduce Your Air Conditioning Costs
Did you know that shade products can reduce air conditioning costs by up to 200 dollars a year? Awnings can do this simply by absorbing the sunlight that would otherwise enter your home and raise the temperature. By blocking that excess light and heat, you avoid putting a burden on your home’s air conditioning system.
Awnings Help with Landscaping
Whether you keep a small herb garden or a few decorative shrubs, awnings can help keep your plants cool and in the shade during the hottest months. Installing new awnings over your patio gives you some space to do additional landscaping or gardening as well.
Many shade plants only grow in indirect light so that they won’t thrive under direct sunlight. Even some healthy plants may wilt under direct sun exposure during those long summer days. You can keep your garden beautiful and strong by providing some shade to your plants.
Appeal to Buyers
Homebuyers are often looking for homes that have a beautiful exterior. Apart from providing valuable additional living space, your awnings can give your yard a competitive edge over other homes. If you are selling your home, especially in a competitive housing market, it’s always worth investing in exterior improvements.
