The elegance and practicality of a well built retractable awning will instantly add value to your residential or commercial property! They look incredible and provide cooling and protection from the harmful UV rays of our sun. If you’ve ever looked into your backyard space and felt like it could make a great outdoor living space, why not start with providing shade and a beautiful retractable awning.

Visually Stunning Backyard Shade

If you have a street-facing commercial property an awning can provide a great focal point to draw in potential customers. With a custom awning, you can have your company name and logo proudly displayed on your storefront. Not to mention the welcoming shade it provides that welcomes your customers back into the storefront or commercial space. Just tell your new customers to look for the store with the bright awning on your cross streets!

Work from home in style

Initially working from home as a remote contractor or as a self-employed professional is always exciting and empowering. However, if you’re like me you eventually feel caged by your home office, never really escaping the workload. There is an incredible alternative available! With a retractable awning, you can have an outdoor office right in your backyard or patio! The awning will provide shade and keep any weather away from you and workspace. Its really amazing how helpful being out in fresh air can be when you work from home!

Not just for Patios and Backyards

When you picture an awning, it’s easy to just see a small covered area. However, awnings are made custom to the size of space you need! If your property has a large balcony that you would like to fit with a retractable awning you can simply have it made longer so it covers the entire balcony. This feature allows for year-round coverage from both the sun and most weather conditions. High winds your probably best staying inside anyway.

They will fit anywhere

Most people assume an awning as to be over a large window or other large area but just isn’t true. Awnings can be built in nearly any shape and size and can easily provide coverage for circular windows, building corners and even angled windows! It’s best to consult a professional before committing to a single awning design choice as you may be pleasantly surprised at how much coverage can be provided with these versatile shade coverage options.

Tips for a Shade Sail Purchase

Nearly all outdoor spaces benefit from having a shade sail. From homes, commercial buildings, and schools all benefit from having protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Our Shade sails are built with durable and flexible fabrics that are secured by powerful anchor posts, and then stretched to additional anchor points.

How does a Shade Sail benefit me?

Shade sails are beautiful and provide much needed shade, however they offer more than just UV Ray protection. They are actually great investment as they improve the aesthetics of any open air space. Shade sails also provide protection from other weather conditions such as rain and snow. The installation process allows for quite a great deal of flexibility as they can be installed and relocated with a small amount of carpentry work.

Shade Sail Practical Functionality

Lets be honest, the most powerful and most recognizable benefit of a shade sail is the aesthetics it brings to any outdoor space. Whether its a commercial or residential property shade sails have to match the colors and appearance of the outdoor space. This is especially true if the shade sail is meant to be up year round. However the benefits don’t end there. Due to their modular nature shade sails are extremely adaptable to most sizes of outdoor living spaces. However it’s worth noting that we should keep in mind that shade sails that are too small may fail in providing enough coverage.

How To Clean Residential Awnings

Keeping your residential awnings clean and free of debris will extend the life and vibrancy of your awning’s fabrics. Once a month hose the awnings with clean water, this helps prevent stains from setting and reduces the amount of more intense cleaning. However, a deep clean every 2 and a half years will be required.

Remove any loose dirt or debris to prevent damaging the fabric and awning. Using clean water hose down the awning, it doesn’t need to be heavily saturated. Combine water and dishwashing fluid, enough to be generous in application to the awning. Apply the cleaning solution to awning using a brush or towel ensuring that the solution penetrates the fabric. Using a hose rinse the fabric to prevent soil residue stains. Allow the awning fabric to air. Follow this monthly routine will keep your residential awning looking good as new and ensuring it lasts a lifetime.

Benefits of Commercial Awnings

Awnings provide more than just comfortable protection from the sun for your customers, they tell the consumer that you have their best interest in mind. If your commercial building doesn’t have an awning or canopy lets take a moment to consider the many benefits.

We have got to start with the immediate aesthetic benefit of a bright and welcoming awning to welcome new and returning customers. It looks great and as we all first impressions make or break lasting opinions. Potential customers are more likely to see your business and thus more likely to go in and browse.

Let your brand shine high and proudly, placing your brand on the face of the awnings provides a professional and considerate reminder of your commitment to customer satisfication. A commercial awning provides you the opportunity to put your logo front and center of anyone facing your storefront.

Ok lets talk energy savings. Where you aware that on a hot summer day more heat penetrates the building from a single window pane, than an entire insulated building wall? This heat forces the air conditioner to work overtime, driving your electric bill through the roof. The thick and heavy fabric of an awning will help divert and absorb the heat away from the building. Which leads to significant savings in your electric bill!

Commercial awnings are built and designed from the ground up to be a long term investment. If your in :as Vegas and are considering investing in a commercial awning feel free to contact us today!
