Choosing the Right Awning for Your Home

Exterior awnings can add both beauty and functionality to any home. Still, you cannot just choose any awning without at least a little thought about both your needs and your tastes. The experts at Carter Fence suggest considering a few important factors before choosing an awning to install on your home.

Consider the aesthetics – Awnings are available in a wide variety of colors, fabrics and styles. Many homeowners aim to mimic the color of the awnings with the current trim color on the home. At Carter Fence, we install SunSetter awnings. Each one is created using a 100 percent solution-dyed, water-repellent acrylic fabric with a wonderful woven texture. When deciding which type of awning is best you should certainly consider your wants and needs. However, an awning professional can save you a lot of time and effort by making some recommendations for you.

Decide on functionality – Lighter colored awnings will trap less heat and reflect more sunlight, so they are better in warmer climates while darker ones work better in cooler environments. In addition, you will have to decide between a motorized retractable awning and a manual awning. With a motorized awning, the simple touch of a button will open or close the awning so you can enjoy your deck or patio whether it is raining or sunny within just a few seconds.
