Invest in a custom home canopy to enjoy the advantages they bring.

When it comes to enhancing the aesthetics and functionality of your outdoor living space, a custom home canopy can be a game-changer. These versatile structures add a touch of elegance to your property and provide practical benefits that can transform how you enjoy your outdoor areas. Whether you’re looking to create a cozy outdoor retreat or simply elevate the overall appeal of your home, investing in a custom home canopy is a decision worth considering. From increased property value to reduced energy expenses, you’ll discover how this stylish addition can make a significant difference in your home life.

Reduce Your Energy Expenses 

Awnings and canopies work year-round to block much of the sun’s rays from entering your windows and entryways. By blocking the direct sunlight, your custom home canopy reduces heat buildup in your home by as much as 75 percent! By preventing that heat buildup, your new canopies will help reduce how much power you use to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. During summer, you won’t need to use as much air conditioning. If you install a retractable awning or canopy, you can close the awning during winter to let in more sunlight and naturally heat your home so you rely less on central heating. 

Improve Curb Appeal 

There is a special charm that comes with a custom home canopy. When you design your canopy with Carroll Architectural Shade, you know your new shade product is made with durable, high-quality materials. Our designers work with you to select the best colors and accents to complement your existing home design. This means when people get a look at your home, they will be instantly drawn to your home and admire its charm and beauty. 

Expand Your Living Space

If you have taken time to create a comfortable outdoor living space on your porch or deck, you want to make sure you get the most out of it. When you invest in a custom home canopy, you can make sure that this space is not made uncomfortable by hot sun or rain showers. The shelter and shade provided by canopies cannot be beaten. 

Protect Your Biggest Asset, Your Home

Your home is a significant investment and should be taken care of. By installing canopies, you block much of the sun’s harmful rays that can cause bleaching, warping, and blistering to the outside of your home and the interior walls, floors, and fabrics. If you want to help keep your home in excellent condition, you may find it best to invest in a home canopy. 

Increase Your Home Value 

Adding functional and attractive features to your home, such as a canopy, will boost your home’s value. If you sell your home in the future, potential buyers will be drawn to the canopies already in place as they provide benefits such as shade, curb appeal, and energy savings.
