Frequently Asked Questions about Outdoor Awnings

Are Outdoor Awnings a Good Investment?

Yes, they are, especially in the current energy-use-conscious times. Outdoor awnings can help to control the temperature inside your property and may even help with your costs. You could be saving on air conditioning costs during the warm season and on heating costs during the colder months by just adding outdoor awnings.

What Types of Outdoor Awnings Are There?

How Long do Retractable Awnings Last?

The answer to this question will depend on the type of outdoor awnings you are interested in, but in general, outdoor awnings will not fail any sooner then you would expect them too – in other words, you can expect an adequately long service life from your outdoor awnings. Retractable awnings, provided they are well made can last up to around 15 yours without any issues. Naturally, as with anything really, their service life will also depend greatly on how well you look after them.

Do Awnings Provide Shade?

Outdoor awnings can certainly provide your property with additional shade. For example, fixed awnings are well know for providing generous amounts of extra shade without obstructing your view, making them the perfect choice when the amount of shade your property gets is a serious consideration. Retractable types of awnings are even better choice if you want extra control, you can deploy them when you do need the extra shade and retract them when you do not.

Frequently Asked Questions about Outdoor Blinds

Are Outdoor Blinds Worthwhile?

Outdoor blinds are a good investment, they are made with energy savings in mind, keeping warmth inside your property during colder months, and preventing heat from entering during summer. With enough time, outdoor blinds can virtually pay for themselves.

What Types of Outdoor Blinds Are There?

A few examples of the types of outdoor blinds on the market today are:

Are Outdoor Blinds Waterproof?

When we talk about waterproofing, we typically mean 100% watertightness, just like with the hull of a boat. Outdoor blinds are not 100% watertight, but they ARE water and weather resistant which is probably what you actually have in mind anyway, when asking about their waterproofing.

Do Outdoor Blinds Stop Rain?

Outdoor blinds will prevent rain from entering spaces that they protect. But keep in mind, this is within reason, gusty winds and cyclonic weather cannot easily be stopped no matter what you throw against it. You can expect your outdoor blinds to add a lay of weather resistance to your property however.
