5 Reasons to Add an Awning to Your Home

Residential awnings offer a wide range of benefits. Adding one to your home can help:

Reduce Energy Costs

What homeowner doesn’t want to save money on their utilities? Residential awnings can reduce cooling costs up to 50 percent, according to a study by the Professional Awning Manufacturers Association, commissioned through the Center for Sustainable Research at the University of Minnesota. The savings can be even greater if you have an older, less energy-efficient home. Researchers also determined that reducing direct solar gain through windows in turn helps reduce electricity demand during peak periods and decreases the need for new generators. The bottom line: Residential awnings are a very green solution for your home.

Protect Your Home’s Interior

The sun’s powerful rays streaming in through your windows can fade all of your interiors, including furniture, carpets, floors, and walls. A residential awning can provide shade to a large portion of your home’s exterior, protecting whatever’s inside the windows from the direct rays.

Increase Your Outdoor Living Space

In Minnesota, we all want to make the most out of the warmer months. Adding an awning to your home immediately increases your outdoor living space by providing a comfortable, shaded place to grill, relax, or entertain.

Beautify Your Home

Our residential awnings are stylish and eye-catching. With a wide variety of colors and fabrics to choose from, you’re sure to find something that complements your needs, style, and budget.

Boost Your Curb Appeal

When your home is more beautiful, it’s more appealing to visitors and potential buyers. It’s possible that your awning could even pay for itself over time by boosting your curb appeal and increasing the value of your home.

Custom Designed for Function & Style

In addition to manufacturing your residential awning to the precise measurements of your home, we also offer a wide range of fabrics, frame colors, and optional features so your new awning will look and function just how you want it to.
