Below we have mentioned a few tips for choosing the right awning for your home. Take a look.
- The angle of installation
Awnings are installed for a purpose; that is to shield the building from harsh sunlight and the torrential rains. Hence, the angle at which they are installed plays a major role in its optimal performance. This mainly depends on the angle of the sun. If you have your windows facing east or the west, a drop angle between 65 and 75% would be correct, but if your windows face south then a 50 to 60% drop would be fine.
- The extra accessories
In order for your awning to perform efficiently and effectively, the accessories are quite important. Though these additions make the awning costlier, they are an investment. They not only hold the awning for a longer period of time but also make them sturdier. For example, the side panels are very essential in retractable awnings as they provide protection from every direction.
