There are many benefits to installing a retractable awning to your home. Most notably, Hampton Roads homeowners love the benefit of shade that awnings provide from the scorching heat on their deck, patio, or porch. Being retractable, you decide when the awning will be extended or retracted, all at the push of a button.
Not only are retractable awnings a feature to add beauty to your home, they are also practical as well. Retractable awnings provide you with shade when you need it and sun when you want it. In addition to giving you shade on demand; retractable awnings block up to 94% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. Making your time outside more enjoyable, and safer.
The use of awnings outside of your home provides the additional bonus of energy efficiency inside your home. The elements on your home most likely to be the source of lost energy are glass doors and windows. In fact, on a hot summer day, more heat energy enters your home in one square foot of glass than an entire insulated wall. When you utilize an awning over the windows or glass doors of your home, you reduce the solar heat your home absorbs. Reducing the sun’s ability to heat up your home in the summer means your home’s cooling system works less. The less your air conditioning system runs, the lower your utility bill and the smaller your carbon footprint. Installing retractable awnings to your home will save you money and energy come the hot summer days from Virginia Beach to Williamsburg, the Eastern Shore and the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

Protecting from the sun’s harmful UV rays is not only important for you and your family, it is important for your furniture too! Retractable awnings minimize the sun’s impact on outdoor furniture as well as any indoor furnishings in the window’s range. Extended exposure to sunlight can fade and weather your furniture and floor coverings. Added shade not only provides you with a more enjoyable outdoor living space, it also extends the life of your home furnishings!
