Residential Shade Structures
RESIDENTIAL SHADE STRUCTURES in Austin, TX
There are a lot of options when it comes to sun protection. Porch covers, patio covers, and canopies are among the options. The majority are non-removable "fixed" porch and patio covers, which are usually vertical supports. Many of these porch and patio covers have a glass or translucent plastic on top, while some have fabric strips.
• Porch Awnings
Consider installing an outdoor porch awning if your home has a porch, patio, or sunroom that is exposed to the sun for most of the day. A window shade and porch awning combination add curb appeal while also keeping your family comfortable in the summer heat!
• Patio & Deck Awnings
Is it time to add some shade to your outdoor patio or deck? A window awning on the outside of your house can exactly provide what you need. Most patio and deck awnings provide varying levels of UV protection, allowing you to spend the entire summer outside!
Porch Cover and Patio Cover Sun Blocking and UV Protection:
You get the best of both worlds with our porch or patio awning: perfect sun blocking and 99 percent UV ray protection when you want it, and full sun when you want that. You have the option of extending or retracting all of our models in seconds. You may also reduce your heating and cooling costs by blocking the hot sun from entering your home through windows or sliders in the summer but letting it in during the winter to help heat your home.
The majority of the porch and patio covers are fixed. They don't retract. A cloth patio canopy does the same thing, so you don't get full sun when you want it. However, because many of these porch covers, patio covers, and fixed canopies let in some light all of the time, they don't provide complete shade and protection. Even a porch cover or patio cover with tinted glass or plastic lets in partial sun, similar to a car's sunroof, so you still may get glare, light, and heat when you don't want it. A permanent porch cover, patio cover, or canopy structure has this limitation.
Affordability of Porch Covers and Patio Covers
Our Patio and Porch Awnings are remarkably inexpensive, allowing you to have custom-built features without the custom-built expense. When you consider the time and cost of construction, as well as the additional maintenance requirements over time, a fixed porch cover or patio cover can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Building a porch cover or patio cover generally necessitates the acquiring of building permits. Furthermore, such fixed canopies can increase your home's tax bill. A fixed porch cover, patio cover, or fixed canopy is, therefore, more expensive than an awning on many levels.
The convenience of Porch Covers and Patio Covers
A permanent porch cover or patio cover cannot be moved. Furthermore, fixed porch covers, patio covers, and canopies often necessitate hefty vertical supports, which can block your view. A porch cover, patio cover, or canopy can also attract birds, insects, and squirrels. When retracted; however, our deck, porch, and patio awnings stay flat against your home. They retract easily. Our lateral arm styles have no vertical supports, while our XT models have slim arms that may be angled back against your house or positioned vertically.
