Roll up awnings can add a new look to any deck or patio. They are priced to sell and are a great structure to add to your entertaining spaces. Roll up awnings provide shelter from the sun and rain as well as providing a safe and non-slippery walk way. This is an especially nice way to protect elderly or young children to and from different areas of your yard. If you have a business the rollup awnings serve as great shop awnings too.
Awning systems can be used to beautify and enhance your deck, patio, yard, or business, as well as providing shade and shelter. Many companies will work with you to help design a product that will fit your specific needs. Make sure you buy from a licensed or authorized dealer to ensure that you get a quality product.
Roll up awnings come in many styles, materials and fabrics. There is a wide selection of fabrics and patterns to choose from. So, you should not have any trouble finding the right one to match your outdoor decor or color scheme. The fabrics that are available range from cottons, mesh fabrics, canvas cloth to vinyls and acrylics. Your choice would be dependent on the use of the awnings, whether it is for shade only or for keeping out rain.
Use a Licensed Installer
You should have a professional installer or contractor to actually install the roll up awnings for you. Most companies will have a local crew that can come to your home or business and install the awning. Make sure that your contractor is licensed in the state that you live in. A contractor is responsible for the installation. They have to be licensed every two years. If you hire an unlicensed person to install your awning, you may be liable for damages incurred for any damages.
There is usually a charge for installation, so be sure to ask about installation fees. It is also a good idea to make sure of the schedule time of installation. In the spring and warmer times of the year they will be busier than in colder months.
