The cooler temperatures of fall are finally here! It’s prime time in the Valley of the Sun for backyard parties and family gatherings. Of course, an outdoor shaded area is a must for al fresco dining and entertaining. The ideal solution is a retractable awning to provide just the right amount of cover to a patio or porch.
Not only does a retractable awning create the perfect outdoor living space for your home, it also offers a variety of other valuable benefits.
Lowers Your Energy Costs
A retractable awning helps shield your home’s windows from unwanted heat. This means that it can literally help lower your utility bill throughout the spring, summer, and fall months.
Protects Your Patio Furniture
The trend in indoor/outdoor living areas continues. And, this means more of us are investing in high quality patio furniture that reflects design elements in our homes. A retractable awning can provide the necessary shade to keep these pieces looking their best for many years to come. Why risk damaging patio furniture by exposing it to the elements, when you can cover it with a stylish awning that helps set the stage for your outdoor lifestyle?
Reduces Sun Exposure
With skin cancer cases increasing, we all need to be aware of the dangers of the sun. A retractable awning offers protection that can help minimize sun exposure while enabling you to enjoy the wonderful weather that the Phoenix metro area is famous for.
