Deck Awnings

By Canvasgirl

When you have an important gathering in the backyard then make sure you are protected from the weather with qualitRetractable Awningsy deck awnings. We cannot control the weather, but at least you do not have to cancel or disrupt your party or family lunch just because of the rain. With deck awnings you and your guests will be protected not only from the inconvenience of rain showers but also the heat of the midday sun.

Most of us like to make the most of the fresh air and it is so nice especially in the summer months to have breakfast out on the deck whilst reading the newspaper. It is a great way to unwind at the weekend and forget about the stresses and strains of working life.

The main consideration for your deck awning is of course staying dry or keeping cool on very hot sunny days. Deck awnings come in many different sizes and customers can purchase either manual or motorized models. Of course a motorized model is very easy to use and takes little effort to operate. However, the manual models are also easy to operate using a crank handle to extend or retract the awning cover.

Some customers may worry about motorized models and what will happen if there is a power outage. In this instance there is no need to worry as most motorized deck awnings have a manual override feature. The other great benefit of deck awnings is that you don’t have to extend them fully, so you can partially cover the space. You can also choose many different styles and colors to make your deck and indeed house that much more decorative.

From a practical point of view, arguably the most popular type of deck awnings is made from aluminum. One of the reasons for this is that aluminum awnings are the best at reflecting light away from the surface of the deck. If your deck has a particularly hot and sunny aspect then this will ensure you and your family would have a consistently cool area to sit in during the summer.

Customers looking for a more aesthetically pleasing and yet still practical type of deck awning will often opt for canvas. With canvas deck awnings you usually have a wider choice of colors and styles than the aluminum ones. However, it has to be said that aluminum will last much longer than canvas.

If you are looking to add a great feature to the home in order to protect your deck and enjoy the outdoors in virtually all weathers, then investing in an awning is cost effective and practical way to do it.
