Oh, the weather outside is frightful but your new awning will be delightful, and when the snow melts away, you’ll enjoy your awning right away. 

You’ve probably never thought about having an awning installed during the winter, have you? Well, if you’ve been wanting an awning but haven’t found the right time to install it, here are a few reasons why winter is a great time.

Your awning will be completed faster

Our schedules fill up fast in the spring and summer which means your awning can take a little longer to be completed. With not as many people on the schedule in the winter, your awning will be better positioned to be finished in a shorter amount of time from concept to completion.

More time for consultation

In addition to our installation schedules being more flexible, our awning experts are more available to consult with you. You won’t be rushed on making decisions but rather have time to consider the best awning option(s) for your needs. You can start your research on the different types of awnings we offer by reading one of our previous blog posts about fixed vs. retractable awnings.

Enjoy your yard sooner

We all know the weather can be unpredictable so having your awning done now, you can enjoy it as soon as the weather gets warm. 

Drop shades

Another item to work with our experts on is a drop shade. These are used in the winter to keep the weather out, sun/UV protection, and privacy for things like your outdoor winter hot tub sessions.

We offer a variety of shade solutions. Exterior drop shades are available with electric motors and wireless remotes. A rope operated drop shade provide protection for your enclosed deck or patio. 

The main material used on our drop shades is Textiline. This fabric is exceptionally durable and highly customizable including numerous color options. We offer customizable lengths up to 30 ft. and 16 ft. drops. Other companies are not able to offer that. We recommend using a 90%-95% mesh for optimal shade. Other reasons we recommend the Textiline material is it carries a 10 year limited warranty, it blocks the sun but not the view and are infused with Micronban® technology, an antimicrobial that inhibits the growth of stains and odor-causing bacteria.
