Warm weather is upon us, and it’s only going to get hotter! Spring and Summer are prime times to get outdoors and enjoy your backyard. Sometimes, however, the sweltering sun can be too much to bear. If you aren’t blessed with shade trees covering your porch or patios, relaxation in the shade is still a possibility! Awnings and shade sails can both provide protection from the sun while also looking stylish and cool in your backyard.
For people opting for a semi-permanent or occasional shade for a patio or porch, a retractable awning is perfect choice. The motorized awning attaches to your home and rolls out at the touch of a bottom. Most come with a remote control, which allows you to adjust your awning without ever leaving your seat. While extended, these awnings provide complete protection from sun and rain. When you are in the mood for direct sunlight, they retract in minutes. They provide you with complete control of sun and shade with very little effort.
Shade sails are intended to be a more permanent form of shade protection. They provide a super stylish alternative to a covered porch. Shade sails offer unique versatility because, unlike a retractable awning, the
y can be attached to almost any back yard structure, including your home, trees, or even installed columns. They are removable at the end of every season, but when you see how beautiful they are installed, you will want to leave them visible year round! They come in a variety of materials, offering different degrees of UV protection, and shapes so they can be customized to fit any taste.
Why limit your outdoor activity this summer because of the super hot sun? With a retractable awning or shade sail covering your porch, patio, or backyard area, you will be lounging in comfort all summer long! Sit down, relax, and enjoy the shade.
