Made For Shade: 5 Benefits of Retractable Patio Awnings

Digital Strategies Support - Saturday, April 23, 2016

During those hot summer months of the year, do you ever wish that you could get a little bit of reprieve from the heat and the sun? Perhaps your backyard doesn’t have any trees, so you can’t sit in the shade anywhere. If this is the case, then it’s time to consider residential retractable awnings. But which option is the right one for you?

At Dorchester Awning, we offer different options to choose from. You can choose between our stationary awnings that are fixed to the house with a sturdy frame. Another option is our residential retractable awnings which can be pulled out when you want shade and then retracted if you want more sun. Below are several benefits of retractable patio awnings for your yard.

1.      Protection from the Sun

Residential retractable awnings offer protection from the sunlight when you just want to relax in your yard. Say goodbye to the days of having to stay inside to get out of the sun. Instead, you can relax out in your yard underneath your awning while reading a book or sipping a cool glass of lemonade.

2.      Stay-cation in Your Backyard

One of the great things about residential retractable awnings is that they extend the comfort of your own home to outside in your yard. When you can enjoy a nice cool awning and relax in your yard without the heat blaring down on you, you’ll find that a stay-cation has never seemed more enticing.

3.      Block the Sun, Not the View

Enjoy staying cool in the hot summer months while still being able to enjoy the view. Our awnings provide protection from the sun without blocking the view. Whether you have a view of the ocean, a view of the valley, or view of a nice backyard, you’ll get to enjoy being outdoors while not having to compromise relaxing in the shade.

4.      Save Money

Residential retractable awnings can save you a lot of money on your energy bill. In fact, an awning keeps sun from coming into your home through the windows which can help keep your house anywhere from eight to fifteen degrees cooler in the summer time. This means that you won’t have to use your air conditioner as often or turn it down quite so low. You’ll be amazed at how much money an awning can save you.

5.      Customization to Your Home

One of the great benefits of awnings is that they can be customized to fit every preference and style. Our awnings are designed to improve the look of your home, and you get to choose between a variety of different colors, fabrics, and styles to best suit your needs

We love being outside but find it unfortunate that our back porch is hit by the sun each day as it goes down. It is good to knwo that awnings offer protection from sunlight when you want to relax in your yard. It would be nice to read a book or sip a cool glass of lemonade underneath your awning. I am excited to tell my husband about your article.

My husband and I have been considering getting and awning, but we weren't sure. I didn't know that getting an awning could help keep our house cool! That would definitely save us some money this summer. Maybe we should get one! Thanks for the great information!
