Patio Awning – Protect Your Patio And Prolong The Life of Your Belongings
A Patio is the perfect way to improve the quality of your home for many reasons; you could host a party, or you could have a barbecue, host a get together, or anything else that you might want to do on your back porch. But what happens if you do all the planning for big events only for it to rain on your party or your big get together? This could truly ruin the entire event that you spend so much time getting ready for, and a patio awning can truly save tragedies such as this from happening, and are perfect for protecting your patio and prolonging the life of your belongings. There are numerous different types of awnings when choosing a patio awning, and they all will fall into numerous budgets, which makes it simple for you to decide which one is the best for you.
The first type of patio awning would just be a typical canopy type awning, which would have to be put up and taken down each time that you need to use it. The main benefit of this type of patio awning is that they are relatively inexpensive and can be bought in various sizes, which helps to accommodate many different events. The downfall to this type of patio awning of course is the fact that you have to set up and break down each time that you need to use it, along with the fact that leaving it up all the time could result in it being damaged by the weather.
More About Patio Awnings
The second type of patio awning is arguably the most popular, and is known as a retractable patio awning. These retractable patio awnings can be bought in all different sizes to accommodate many different patios, but the difference is that they are able to be extended and can then be retracted. What this means is that you’ll be able to shelter all of your guests against the elements of the weather when you need to, and then you’d be able to retract it back to let in a little bit of sun whenever necessary. There are some retractable awnings that may even be motorized, meaning that you can extend and retract your patio awning with just a simple click of a button.
A patio awning is a great way to protect your patio and prolong the life of all of your belongings, as well as be sure that your events will always happen no matter what Mother Nature may bring you in terms of the weather. We highly recommend a patio awning.

We have been doing quite a few Aluminum Awning installations in the Lake Norman area this year. This customer wanted to cover his back deck area that was already being used as a relaxing outdoor space. We had to make a 90 degree corner along the mounting edge of the house itself to accommodate the protruding sliding glass door. The supports were attached directly to the deck railing as they were properly built and sturdy.
You can see here in the close up photo just how the aluminum awning attaches to the home. The white colored aluminum matches nicely with the existing vinyl windows and trim. The floating channel of aluminum in the center of the awning can be outfitted with an outdoor ceiling fan.
