Property developers are starting to discover the value of awnings on their apartment buildings. When constructing or renovating an apartment building, one of the key design strategies is making the front of the building appealing to potential tenants. Installing a new awning is a great way to make your building more appealing while also providing some protection from the elements. If you’re a developer working on a new or renovated apartment building, here are a few good reasons why you should install an awning on it.
Boosting Curb Appeal
An apartment building with great curb appeal has the best chance of ensuring that all of the units will be occupied. An awning is a perfect way to give the building major curb appeal and help it stand out from the pack, especially on a busy street. A new awning makes the front entryway of the apartments more inviting to your current tenants as well as any prospective ones.
Shade and Weather Protection
If you’re planning on having doormen on staff, a new awning installation can ensure that your doormen don’t have to be subjected to the elements while waiting outside. While choosing an awning design, have some thought towards planning a doorway covering. This will offer good protection from the sun, rain, and even snow. Your new awning covering will also protect tenants as they are entering a building or waiting on a taxi.
A Great Way to Advertise Your Apartment Building
An awning is the perfect place to advertise the name and address of your apartments. Use this opportunity to display a logo that will really pop and stand out to potential tenants. When people pass the building on the street, they can see a clearly displayed name and address, which will provide consistent advertising for your apartments. You can also add information such as the street number and the phone number or website of your rental agency!
