Dress Up Your Home with Window Awnings, Wilmington, NC

Oh my, this amazing cool breeze is coming through my window and the sun is shining through, I’m Happy” (Liv Tyler). This is a thought many of us may have on that perfect spring day as the sun gently filters through the windows of our home. However as the warmer months of summer and the colder months of winter arrive, we may want and need more protection from the outdoor elements. Installing window awnings  can provide energy efficient protection while adding distinctive curb appeal.

There are a few things to consider before choosing the window awnings that are best suited for your home.  The direction the windows face is an important consideration when selecting awnings that give your home the best protection. For example; on windows that face south, window awnings can reduce solar heat up to 65% in summer months. Awnings installed on west facing windows which get direct sunlight need to be wider and include side panels in order to reduce the sun’s heat up to 77%. This type of protection saves money and keeps the home cooler. There are various styles, designs, and fabrics to choose from. Sunbrella offers a wide selection of color fast stripped and solid awning fabrics in such colors as Jockey Red, Hemlock Tweed, and Sunflower Yellow. These fabrics are water repellent and fade resistant providing long lasting protection.

Window awnings can be installed to operate inside or outside the home with motorized or hand crank control options. Retractable window awnings are popular because they provide complete coverage for sun protection and privacy yet retract completely to let the sun in. Window awnings protect  furniture, rugs and other valuable items while adding value and architectural interest to the home.
