January 1, 2019
What’s one quick way to reduce glare and heat gain, improve the livability of almost any outdoor space, and enhance the curb appeal of your home or business? The answer is custom awnings!
Always Remember These Five Things When Shopping
Whether you’re a business owner or homeowner, custom awnings bring huge benefits.
Remember: Awnings are for businesses and homeowners
If you are a business owner, visibility and brand awareness are two of the most important factors in increasing your sales and attracting customers. That goes double for small or startup businesses.
Door and window commercial awnings emblazoned with your company’s brand are hot sellers.
For homeowners, one of the most attractive options available today is a retractable awning. Custom retractable awnings come in your choice of color, pattern, and fabric and are designed to extend your outdoor living space with the touch of a button.
Remember: Retractable awnings are affordable
Awnings are incredibly affordable and can enhance your other outdoor improvement efforts.
You might start thinking about home awnings to increase your home’s overall curb appeal since when you combine landscaping, new siding, and a fresh paint job with a new awning, the results can be powerful.
Permanent window and door awnings are all-weather and designed to withstand the rigors of New England winters. A lot of New Englanders are shocked to find out how affordable yet versatile custom fabric awnings can be.
Remember: Awnings are anything but one-size-fits-all
A long list of satisfied clients in the civic, healthcare, hospitality, and restaurant sectors perhaps tells you all you need to know about Dorchester Awning’s ability to present affordable, aesthetically pleasing, and customized awnings to its growing list of customers.
Without a collaborative design process, your valued input, and an in-house stitching team, that would be impossible.
Many residential and commercial clients begin shopping for an awning thinking that they have their pick of solid colors—and that’s all. Well, that’s not all: You have your choice of hundreds of colors and patterns and your choice of fabrics from the world’s top manufacturers!
Remember: Awnings are tailored to your needs
Another thing to bear in mind when you’re in the market for a new awning is that the myriad of awnings, curtains, side panels, and solar shades are always tailored to your home’s or building’s architectural features.
That might mean that a convex awning could be the way to go if you’re a small business, and a completely different setup featuring a series of window awnings and a retractable awning for the backyard might be the best option if you’re a homeowner looking to extend your living space.
It all comes down to your needs—architectural, lifestyle, and financial. For homeowners who like to have people over and spend time by the pool in the summer months, a retractable all-weather awning might be the best option. These also work beautifully for receptions and restaurants.
Remember: Increasing curb appeal is in your power!
When you peruse the most popular ways to increase curb appeal, you might get discouraged thinking that overhauling your roof, installing new siding, or putting up a fence sounds like a lot of work. Well, it can be.
