UV rays, high wind, gusts, and rain - basically, normal weather - cause the most damage to awnings. Fading, molding, and tearing fabric. Twisting fixed frames from high wind damage or the weight of snow or pooling rain. In only two or three years, fixed awnings and canopies already show substantial wear, which is why the lifetime of most fixed awnings and canopies is only five or six years before the awning need to be replaced. Retractable awnings are closed when not in use, which cuts weather damage. That makes the maintenance much easier on retractable awnings compared to permanent awnings and canopies - there is no need to hunt down replacement parts, replace fabric every couple of years, or attempt to wrangle awnings down and into storage for winter.
Energy saving: The result of installing awnings should be reflected in the power bill. A good awning can save 100 hours of energy consumption per month. However, you need to plan and install the awnings properly so that the system provides you with adequate heat protection. Home decoration: The awning should look nice on the walls; thats perhaps the most important quality of an awning. Consult a designer or architect and make sure to know what color combination and style would look aesthetically correct on the walls of your home. Durable: This is a quality all consumers look in whatever they use! To make utmost use of the awning, go for retractable ones. They can be pulled back when the weather is harsh and thus you can ensure a longer life of your awning.
Also, retractable awnings have financial benefits over fixed awnings that make them a tempting solution: Retractable awnings are overall less expensive than fixed awnings to install, and they dont require a contractor. Retractable awnings are about a quarter to a third of the cost of permanent construction to cover and utilize the same square footage. Because many styles of retractable awning arms are spring-loaded, there are no support posts to install, to block the view from under the awning, or to act as a potential hazard for children and pets. They require virtually no maintenance, not even mandatory cleaning.Capital Improvement Advantage Retractable awnings have interesting ways of saving a business money: o Direct energy cost savings. Sun protection systems cut heat buildup in a room as much as 77%, translating into a direct utility bill savings of up to 25%. "Dual use" as signage and promotion. Business names, logos, and telephone numbers can be printed on the awning, which saves money on constructing and designing separate signs.
How much shade coverage is required. What the width of the awning should be, based on the shade area. Add at least 12 inches to maximize coverage for sun and rain protection. How far out the awning extends (the projection), based on the shade area. There is a natural slope to an awning, so the actual shade is several inches shorter than the full projection. How high to mount the awning. Because of the awnings slope, the front of the awning is lower than the mounting position; this difference is the drop. The recommended drop is 3 inches per foot of projection. So, if the awning has a 12-foot projection, the drop is about 36 inches. To get a 7-foot clearance under the front bar, the awning has to be mounted at least 10 feet high. Scout out a mounting place that is free of obstructions (no lights, gutters, wiring, or ornamentation) and has adequate clearance around any doors or windows. For screens, make sure that any doors swing away from the screen. For retractable awnings, make sure the awning can extend its full projection without running into a tree, patio, roofline, or fence.
