Why Not Buy A Traditional Awning?
Awnings usually come in either canvas or metal. Canvas awnings are typically cheaper because the material is affordable. Canvas is also a popular option many awning buyers seem to gravitate to. These two options offer come in lots of different shapes, sizes, colors and patterns. However, if you live in New York or New Jersey, you already know that our area is typically going to experience harsh weather conditions like rain and snow. These traditional awnings may not be able to withstand all that weight. The cost to install an awning made out of metal won’t be much different from canvas, but they are extremely strong. The downside is that there will be less customization with the looks of a metal awning and as they wear through the years they can look pretty unsightly after a while.
Here is Why Retractable Awning Should Be Your First Choice
A Retractable Awning is preferred by many because they can be rolled or folded up. Your awning can also be automatic, meaning it would be motorized. Sensors can also be added in the awning that will determine if it needs to be pulled back based on the weather conditions. Motorized awnings are extremely popular, but come with a higher price tag than a traditional awning. With that said, if you live in an area with inclement weather, then these features will definitely extend the life of your awning. A retractable awning can pay for itself over time, but you need to decide for yourself whether or not it’s worth the initial investment.
