Attractive And Functional: Retractable Awnings

Awning installation is a popular way of achieving results for your home that are both attractive and functional. While awnings can add to the beauty of your home, they can also produce some results that are beneficial to your current cooling system. Retractable awnings are a variation on the awning applications that can achieve the same results as awnings but with less fuss and exertion.

Types of Awnings

When it comes to awnings, you can choose from one of the two main types. These are stationary or fixed awnings and retractable awnings.

* Stationary Awnings: – Stationary or fixed awnings obtain their name from their characteristics. A metal frame is attached permanently to a wall or deck. They have no moving parts and are fitted or customized to fit the outdoor space of your home including exterior windows, decks, doors, and patios. They are specifically designed to fit into the space they are required to fill, no matter how unusual or awkward in shape.

Stationary awnings, like retractable awnings, come in a variety of sizes, styles and colors. Materials also vary according to the company from which they are purchased. This will affect such things as maintenance. Although they have no moving parts, the material may require upkeep if it is to remain as pristine as the day it was purchased. This is true even if the fabric is designated to last without significant fading or harm from mold or mildew for a set number of years.

* Retractable Awnings: A retractable awning is one that is designed so that it can retract when required. In other words, the awning is drawn back or moved into position as required. This can be accomplished by physically turning a crank. It can also come about through flicking a switch, hitting a control button or some other device if it is motorized. You can even purchase sensor-controlled retractable awnings.

With both types of awnings readily available, many continue to turn to retractable awnings.

Why Retractable Awnings?

Research indicates that awnings, whether fixed or retractable can reduce up to 65% of the heat’s rays in your home. This can substantially reduce your overall energy bill for cooling your home during the summer. While all awnings can have this effect, there are some characteristics of retractable awnings that make it more attractive or suitable for various individuals. These include:

* Very user-friendly

* Very easily deployed – can retract or put the awning into place without fuss and speedily

* East to tilt – this can help control the degree of the sun’s rays and the amount of cover you want to be extended

* Quick to install on roof or wall

* Less maintenance for the frame than for fixed awnings

* Preferred choice for patios and decks

These are some of the reasons why you may prefer to install a retractable awning over your window or deck. Before you make the final decision, do your homework. Talk to the experts in the field.
