Choosing a Awnings Contractor

HomeProMatch - Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

If you're looking to make your outdoor space more comfortable, dry, and livable all-year-round, then you should install an outdoor awning. Rain or shine, an awning will allow you to enjoy your outdoor living space more often.

For even more beauty, continuity, and security, why not match your outdoor fixture with window and door awnings? A HomePro Match awning contractor can help you design the perfect system for your home!

What does an awning do?

An awning provides partial shelter from rain and other harsh weather, protecting your outdoor space and any furniture under it. However, the best feature of an outdoor awning is probably its ability to make an outdoor space up to 77% cooler. An awning can be installed over windows, doors, decks, patios, and more. If installed outside of a window or a glass patio door, the shade can produce substantial energy savings inside the home.

Do awnings protect you from the rain?

Excess rainfall can wreak havoc to your outdoor space. If you have a wood deck, moisture can cause mold growth, rot, mildew, and staining. If you have a stone, brick, or concrete patio, moisture can cause staining, sinking, and cracking. Also, if your outdoor space has any furniture or other fixtures, then this can cause them to fade and wear down much faster. An awning protects your outdoor space from rainfall, which prolongs the lifespan of a deck, patio, furniture, and more. Plus, the added protection can even save you money on sealing and staining your deck or patio.

How much does an awning cost?

Since outdoor awnings come in a wide array of materials and sizes, the cost can vary from $100 to $5,000. The average cost of an outdoor awning ranges from $1,500 to $3,000. Window awnings usually cost much less, averaging at $300 to $700. Even if you cut costs with an affordable awning, installing it incorrectly can cause damages in the long run. Having a reliable contractor install your awning would be your best investment. An experienced contractor can help you pick the best possible awning for your home as well as assure a safe, reliable, and effective installation.

How do you build an awning?

While building an awning seems like a simple DIY project, the installation can become more complicated than you think. If you’re not an experienced builder, buying an awning kit maybe your best option. Once you decide on a kit, read the directions carefully and make sure you have all the necessary materials and protective gear beforehand. If you want something a little more complicated, like a patio cover or a corrugated awning, then you should reach out to an experienced contractor – this assures a safe, efficient installation. A contractor can also greatly reduces the chance of future damages.

What are the best awnings?

A retractable awning is probably the most common installed fixture. This type of awning extends and retracts by motor or a manual crank, which gives you more control during freezing temperatures, high winds, snow, and other damaging weather. A fixed or wall-mounted awning is also very common. These awnings are either mounted to the property or stand as a structure. This provides year-round shelter over an outdoor space. A freestanding or portable awning resembles a large umbrella. It is movable and can be stored away or displayed whenever you choose.

How to clean awnings?

While the cleaning solution will vary depending on the material of your awning, there are some steps that are consistent in maintaining your fixture. It is important to reduce debris buildup on your awning. This means regularly removing leaves, twigs, snow, and more from the fixture. If these items continue to accumulate, they can cause damage to your awning. You should also consistently remove mold, mildew, and moss stains, as these elements will cause your awning to fade and wear down.
