As a south Atlantic US region, Florida has a humid, subtropical climate. Although this is one of its charms, it may come on too strong at times. This is why ArmorGuard Exteriors™ recommends installing awnings for your homes.
Awnings are roof-like coverings that provide shelter from the sun and rain. They are also common over the entryways of sidewalk shops. To learn more about them, our expert installers answer some common questions about awnings.
Why Do I Need an Awning?
It can provide sun or rain protection. It can also boost the aesthetic appeal of your home and give you the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors while keeping the harsh weather away. Our retractable patio awning provides an unobstructed view of the outdoors while protecting you from the sun.
For commercial buildings, we offer various colors and patterns to attract attention to your business. The additional covered space it provides can even increase seating capacity or serve as a waiting area for your customers.
Does The Fabric Color or Material Affect Its Efficacy?
The darker the color, generally, the darker shade effect it provides. As for the temperature, the type of fabric chosen and the overall ventilation of the installation contribute greatly.
Nonetheless, we offer several materials for different levels of solar and wind control. For example, our 5 Percent Openness Solar Screen offers 95% shield from the sun’s UV rays. This product also comes with a 5 Year Warranty.
How Can It Help Me Save on Energy Costs?
We know how scorching the Florida sun can be. Fortunately, our solar screen and shades allow minimal entry of the sun’s radiation into your home. This reduces the workload of your central air-conditioning unit, which means more energy cost savings for you.
Overexposure to the sun’s UV rays can also cause damage to your furniture or even to the paint of your house. By installing our sunshade awning, we assure less expenditure on furniture replacement or repair and on paint touch-ups.
