Enhancing the exterior look and protecting your interiors is now a one stop solution. Get a rustic exterior or patio style awning. 

A great home does not only have a well-designed interior but also embraces the beautiful exterior concepts. The exterior of your house could always be enhanced with several decorative tools, and adding an awning is one of the options. Awnings have been popular not only for the benefits they bring but also for the look they add to your home’s exteriors. Awnings, also known as overhang is a secondary covering attached to the exterior wall of a building. It is typically composed of canvas woven of acrylic, cotton or polyester yarn, or vinyl laminated to polyester fabric that is stretched tightly over a light structure of aluminum, iron or steel, possibly coot or transparent material.

Basically there are two types of awnings available: manually operated models which are opened by hand and motorized models which operate on electricity. Each offers its own advantages. Benefits include low-cost affordability, easy adaptability to almost any deck or patio, and support arms that can be angled back against the house or set vertically on the deck or patio floor. These arms provide extra support and stability which some owners prefer in windy areas, and increase the awning’s versatility by making the attachment of certain accessories available.

Motorized awnings have no vertical supports. They have retracting lateral arms instead, creating an unobstructed shaded area. These awnings are operated by an electric motor, generally hidden inside the roller bar of the awning. The arms open and close the awning at the touch of a wireless remote control or a wall-mounted switch. Modern awnings may be constructed with covers of various types of fabrics, aluminum, corrugated fiberglass, corrugated polycarbonate or other materials.
