Increase the Value of Your Home by Installing a Home Awning
January 1, 2019
If you look at the home improvement projects that have the biggest payoffs, you’ll find that you can improve the appearance, appeal, and functionality of your home in one project.
You can do that by enhancing your home’s curb appeal through regular landscaping, by renovating your bathrooms and kitchen, or by giving a few rooms a fresh coat of paint.
Interior remodeling is an important factor in enhancing your home’s value, but you don’t want those remodeling measures to come at the cost of a simple, reliable fix.
Home Awnings Increase Home Values and Curb Appeal
Realtors from all around the country will tell you that if you want to quickly improve the value of your home—or sell your home at the highest price—then you should focus on curb appeal.
You want to put yourself in the shoes of the future homeowners if you’re planning on selling your home soon. If you’re planning on simply making your home a more hospitable place for you and your family, then adding a home awning pays off in more ways than one.
Awnings Are Incredibly Practical
Home window and door awnings combine form and function by instantly lending more curb appeal to your home and providing you and your family greater protection from Mother Nature.
The design process at Dorchester Awning Company seeks to match home awnings and canopies to the preferences of homeowners throughout New England.
That means creating tailor-made solutions for your home and matching the fabric, pattern, and awning color to your unique taste and architectural requirements. Hundreds of color and pattern combinations plus an in-house stitching team mean your options are limitless.
Awnings should look great all year and be able to withstand the rigors of a New England climate. Home awnings from Dorchester Awning Company are guaranteed for up to five years and designed to last a lifetime.
An Affordable, Energy-Efficient Upgrade
When a lot of New Englanders consider the price tag on popular home remodelings, they are understandably hesitant to take steps to improve their home’s value.
The national average for a major kitchen remodeling usually hovers around $20,000. Yikes! Even though kitchen remodelings tend to have great return on investment, they don’t come cheap.
A home awning, though, is incredibly affordable—and in some respects is a gift that keeps on giving. How’s that? Home awnings can reduce your home energy use and help you save money, especially in the summer, on utility expenses.
The American Society of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers recently found that fabric awnings on southern-facing windows reduced heat gain by over 50 percent, and awnings facing west reduced heat gain by 75 percent or more!
Heating and cooling expenses account for nearly half of your home’s energy expenses, and home awnings have the ability to cut down on heat gain and potentially reduce those cooling expenses for you and for future homeowners.
Best of Both Worlds: Value and Affordability
Retractable awnings are budget friendly and enhance the decor and livability of your existing porch or outdoor space.
