Top 5 Benefits of Residential AwningsAre you considering adding custom residential awnings to your property? Whether you own a single-family home or a multi-family rental property, residential awnings have the potential to deliver serious benefits. The key is, you must choose a high-quality product and have it installed properly. Fortunately, you can turn to C & C Canvas for all your needs. Whether you are looking for door awnings, window awnings, retractable patio awnings, or even entrance awnings for apartment buildings, we’ve got you covered.

At C & C Canvas, we offer the finest quality in materials, craftsmanship, and installation to make sure your residential awnings will deliver the benefits that are most important to you, like:

Lower Cooling Bills

Solar heat gain can be a major problem in homes with a southern exposure. You might think your only options are to crank up the AC and deal with the extra cost, or shut out all your nice natural light with thick, heavy drapes or shades. In reality, residential awnings can provide an excellent alternative. They block out the harshest angle of sunlight without leaving your home in the dark. One study done in Florida found that adding residential awnings can reduce solar heat gain by up to 80 percent. This helps your property stay cooler so you can spend less on air conditioning.

Less Sun Damage

Besides bringing unwelcome solar heat gain, harsh sunlight from a window or sliding glass door can also cause sun damage to your furnishings and other belongings. For example, carpet, wood floors, upholstery, and even artwork can become faded, and leather items may also split or crack. But with an awning providing shade, this problem is greatly reduced.

Better Outdoor Living

Another benefit of awnings—particularly patio awnings or retractable window awnings over a balcony—is to enhance the comfort and usability of your outdoor living spaces. Instead of being baked in the sun, you can enjoy the outdoors in the cool shade of an awning and not worry about UV damage to your skin.

Aesthetic Appeal

When the right color and style of residential awning is chosen, it can really complement the architecture of your property and provide a beautiful look. At C & C Canvas, we have a huge variety of styles of awnings to choose from, and if you don’t see exactly what you like we can always create a custom design just for you. You always get to choose your canvas color from our selection of high-quality, fade-resistant designer colors.

Improved Home Value

One final advantage of adding residential awnings to your property is that by delivering the above 4 benefits, they can also help make your home more attractive to buyers and therefore more valuable.
