Pick the Perfect Awning for Your Home

Awnings are for more than just patios and decks. Read on for tips on how to pick the perfect awning for your home!

Have you been thinking about getting an awning installed for your home? There are many things to consider when picking the perfect awning. Homeowners may have a few questions before deciding on one. Here at Carroll Awning, we can help you pick the perfect awning for your home. Here are a couple elements of awnings that we can help you choose.

How is your Awning Going to be Used?

Although awnings are usually associated with patios and decks, they have many more uses than most people think. Window, roof, and door awnings can be installed to make a nice impression on your guests. You can also catch the eye of passers-by with the unusual design of a dome or shed style awning. While looking over the many types of awnings available, consider the type of area that you live in. For Maryland residents, a strong deck or patio awning can help keep these parts of your home cool and shaded during the dog days of summer. Or you may want to choose a smaller awning with a nylon coating to protect it from the elements. The variability of our local climate makes your options nearly endless.

Stationary or Retractable?

This may be the most important choice to make for your awning. A retractable awning may be a good choice for you if you spend a lot of time outdoors, as it can help protect you from UV rays and sun glare. Closing your retractable awning when not in use helps protect the fabric and ensures its longevity. A stationary awning, on the other hand, might be better if you have a smaller patio or don’t go outside for long periods at a time. You can determine which areas need shading and mount them as needed. Stationary awnings are perfect for any part of your home – doors, windows, and roofs can all be enhanced with a stylish awning.
