Benefits of Fabric Awnings

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, awnings installed on windows with a southern or western exposure reduce solar heat gains by 65 to 77 percent. Light-colored materials are especially effective at reflecting the sun's rays. Awnings are also useful for shading sunny patios and decks while cutting down on the glare. Customers can choose from an array of solid colors as well as classic stripes and prints that complement their home's aesthetic. Nowadays, manufacturers use high-performance acrylic fibers that outlast canvas and UV-resistant dyes that prevent fading.

Installation Cost Factors

Available options and installation costs depend on the size of the window, the material and the type of frame. Prefabricated products are less expensive than custom designs, but there are size and style limitations. Likewise, fixed awnings are more affordable than crank-operated or motorized models, which give homeowners the ability to raise and lower the cover as needed. Installation costs and hardware requirements vary depending on the home's structure and whether the exterior walls feature bricks, siding or stone veneer.

Hiring an Awning Company

Working with a professional ensures that the new awning looks good, functions properly and withstands the elements. Installers specialize in measuring doors and windows, fabricating covers and installing frames. They're also equipped to handle complex jobs that involve large retractable awnings and products that require assembly. Professionals can select suitable hardware that won't damage the structure and ensure the awning is properly vented to reduce unwanted heat gains.
