6 Fantastic Reasons to Invest in Awnings for Your Home

 
Awnings are the perfect solution if you’re looking to both protect your home and increase its curb appeal—and maybe even its value. Gone are the days when awnings were nothing more than vinyl rollout contraptions or basic wooden structures. Now it’s possible to dress your home up in the materials, styles, and designs that meet your unique needs and preferences. Modernize presents six good reasons to consider investing in awnings for your home:

Use awnings to add curb appeal while providing sun protection for comfortable afternoons spent sipping tea on the porch. Patios with awnings are the perfect outdoor environment for family get-togethers and intimate dinner parties. Whether retractable, wrought iron, or spear style, you should find it easy to implement awnings that complement your home’s current style and décor.Porch Valance

Multi-level awnings add extra space to a home and provide a grander look and feel overall. They allow for comfortable movement from one floor to another while outdoors whether it’s super sunny or rainy and windy. With wrap-around awnings, you have the opportunity to create a variety of outdoor spaces to enjoy under one roof—a candle lit dining area, a cozy barbecue space, or even an outdoor bath house are all possibilities.

Enclosing a patio or porch with the help of a sturdy awning will add square footage to your home and supply you with enough space to create a new and exciting environment to enjoy. Consider turning your enclosed porch into a home office, a guest room, or a meditation space full of plants. An enclosed awning area offers all the comforts of indoors, such as protection from mosquitoes and wind, while providing an opportunity to enjoy the fresh outdoors, beautiful sunrises, and invigorating afternoons.Roll Up Curtains

Combining an awning with a hanging shade system turns any porch, patio, or balcony into a two-in-one system. When the weather outside is nice and comfortable, the shades can be lifted for full exposure to the outdoors. During gloomy or rainy days, the shades can be partially or fully closed for protection from the elements without losing the ability to use your outdoor space.Roll Up Porch Curtains

Sun shining directly into your home through the windows can be harmful, as the UV rays can expose your skin, your flooring, and your furnishings to damage. Implementing awnings on your windows will keep the sun from shining directly in, which gives you full control over your light filtering options when combined with a set of sheer curtains or drapes.

Overall, awnings are an excellent idea whether you live off the land in a small cottage or maintain a swanky home in the suburbs of a large city. With so many styles, colors, sizes, and designs to choose from, you’re sure to find an option that meets your personal and lifestyle needs.Roller-Curtain

We have had a Sunsetter... awning on our back patio for several years now. When it came time to replace the fabric, I couldn’t find a local company to help us. I found PYC on a Google search and decided to give them a try. I was not disappointed! They had several fabric options and I ordered a few samples. One of them matched the cushion covers on my patio furniture perfectly! I called with questions and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The awning came quicker than expected and my husband and I installed it ourselves. We are extremely pleased with the results and wish we would have done this a couple of years ago. I would absolutely recommend this company!read more

we recently added a... screened in porch and of course we have had so much rain we decided to add the clear roll down curtains to prevent rain from coming on to the porch. PYC Awnings was great to deal with. Sandy was wonderful with going over measurements and pictures. the product shopped fairly quick and was well packaged with each window labeled along with the parts for each individual window. My husband installed himself, and was able to get help with a quick call to Sandy. Very satisfied with the quality of the material and parts. it is nice to sit on the porch when its raining.read more
