Awnings are a great way to add value to any home. If you’ve decided that your home needs awnings, you now have the task of deciding what type of awning your home needs. There are many different types of awnings available, such as folding arm awnings and outdoor retractable awnings. But, how can you determine what awning is right for your home? Here are some of the awnings that you can find on the market and the places where you’ll see them installed.

Retractable awnings

If you want an effective outdoor shade, but you don’t have the space to put up foundations, think retractable awnings. A retractable awning is designed to provide shade in tight areas, or any area where it wouldn’t be possible to build a pergola, such as the side of a house. Retractable awnings are also perfect for the home owner who wants an effective shade for their home but doesn’t want to spend the large sum of money that is often required to build a pergola.

Window awnings

Window awnings are the perfect way of shutting out unwanted heat, light and UV energy from your home. The many benefits of window awnings, combined with their ease of use means that you’ll find window awnings attached to homes. No matter what style of home you have, there is a style of window awning in Sydney for every home. As well as benefitting homes, window awnings can also be used as a form of advertising for store fronts.

Straight drop awnings

If you want to increase the quality of privacy and sun protection for the outdoor areas of your home, it’s difficult to look past straight drop awnings. These larger awnings are designed to be attached to the eaves of a building, offering shade and sun protection. As well as being suitable for homes, a straight drop awning can be used as a means of advertising outside a shop.
