The Benefits of a Front Door Awning

A front door awning enhances the curb appeal of any home or business, but also has many practical benefits as well!

When it comes to choosing an awning for your home or business, you are not restricted to installing it above your patio. In fact, door and window awnings are also popular options and still come with many advantages. If you are considering investing in a front door awning, here are just a few of the many great benefits!

Energy Bills

It can be very expensive to crank up the air conditioning on a scorching hot day. However, a front door awning helps to keep the front of your home protected from the sun’s harsh UV rays. This protection naturally keeps your home cooler, meaning your A.C. doesn’t have to work so hard to cool things down. A front door awning is great for homes that get a lot of direct sun exposure throughout the day. In fact, a front door awning can reduce the amount of heat that gets into your home by up to 80%.

The Elements

We all have experienced that race to get through the front door when it’s pouring down raining. With a front door awning, you don’t have to worry about rushing to find the right key when you get to the door in inclement weather. The awning will keep you and your front porch protected from the various weather elements. Your front door awning will also help to keep your porch clean from dirt and debris, which makes clean up less stressful.

Curb Appeal

A well designed awning is sure to catch the attention of people passing by. A front door awning is often the first thing people will see and pay attention to when they approach your home or business. When it comes to business, curb appeal is important in bringing in new customers. For your home, curb appeal increases the overall value of your home, which is great when it’s time to sell it.

Interior Items

It may be surprising to know that a front door awning actually protects your belongings that are inside of the home. The sun’s harsh UV rays can actually cause your furniture and carpets to fade prematurely, which means you will be replacing them sooner than you wanted to. A front door awning keeps the direct sunlight out of your home, hence protecting your furniture, carpet, and even your electronic items from too much heat exposure.
