Residential canvas awnings can extend a living space with style. They can have a significant impact on a home by extending a temporary “roof” over a patio or deck. Awnings can make rooms more comfortable by reducing the temperature and the sun’s glare. Our retractable awnings are great for the patio! You can roll them out to have your shade for the patio and roll them back in when not needed.
Sun and Rain Protection
Today's canvas awnings combine functional elegance with decorative appeal to enhance the appearance of any home. Awnings can complement or dramatize the architecture within a unique style and class, for interior as well as exterior.
Industrial fabrics are strong enough to withstand wind, rain, and sun yet light enough to give you that "outdoor" feeling. To cover a patio, protect a door entrance, window, or any poolside area, various styles and a variety of fabrics are available from vinyl cotton to woven acrylic materials that can provide you with durability, ease of maintenance, and a huge selection of vivid colors.
Pretty and Practical, Too
Awnings conserve energy by shading windows and reducing interior temperatures. According to a study by the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), awnings on windows and patio doors can reduce the interior temperatures between eight and fifteen degrees.
The exact amount of heat reduction depends upon several factors: the exposure of the window, the color of the fabric and the style, and method of attaching the awning. As an example, awnings can reduce solar heat gain by up to sixty-five percent on south-facing windows and seventy-seven percent on west-facing windows.
