A front door awning might seem like an unnecessary luxury, but they are practical and beautiful structures that should be on every home! Why do you need a front door awning?
Lower Your Energy Bills Right Away
The front of the home, with all of the large windows and exposed surfaces, typically allows a ton of heat into the home. A front door awning blocks out some of those rays and reduces the amount of heat that seeps inside. You will notice an immediate drop in your energy bills that will continue to benefit you over time. A recent study demonstrated that a front door awning can filter out a massive 80% of the heat that enters your home through the front of your home.
Protect Your Home from the Elements
Nothing is more annoying than trying to unlock the front door while rain, snow, or sleet are bombarding you. A front door awning helps to protect you and your home from the elements. A front door awning also allows guests to stay comfortable while they wait for you to come to the door. A surprising side effect is that your front door and steps will also not need to be repaired or replaced as frequently since they will be shielded from the rain and sun.
Block Out Fading
Fading is a major problem for hardwood flooring, carpeting, and furniture in sunny spots of the home. A front door awning, by blocking out the sunlight, you will not be negatively impacted by fading or need to rotate your furniture placements. This also preserves the investments that you’ve made in your flooring and furniture.
Add Some Curb Appeal
Even if you aren’t planning on putting your home on the market anytime soon, adding some curb appeal is always a good thing. A well-designed front door awning will beautifully frame and accent your front door and home.
