06 Apr 2011 A Perfectly Matched Retractable Awning

Most of my customers are anticipating the end of winter and the coming of spring almost as much as I am. That’s why it was such a pleasure to help Mr. Harold Jordan with his recent home improvement project.  

While he loves the view he receives from his beautiful A-Frame home, sitting on the marsh in lovely Hampstead, NC, Mr. Jordan was in need of more heat and sun protection on his back deck.

Mr. Jordan decided he wanted to add a retractable awning. This would not only help with the sun issues he was having on his porch, but at the same time, would help to add additional energy efficiency to the windows lining the back of his home. The awning will help him to save in utility bills, by preventing the sun from entering in the summer and allowing it to enter in the winter.

With a retractable awning, he is able to control of the amount of shade or sunlight he desires by simply extending or retracting the awning to the point he prefers, allowing as much or as little sun exposure as he wishes.  Also, by choosing to have a retractable awning installed, he is able to protect his interior items from the sun’s harmful UV rays, such as his furniture, carpet, or rugs.  

What I enjoyed most about this project is, because we carry multiple name brands, including Sunsetter, Sunesta, Sunbrella, and Futureguard, we have access to almost every color and pattern imaginable; therefore, Mr. Jordan was able to find an awning color that perfectly matched the wood toned color of his house.

I enjoyed being able to help Mr. Jordan make the most of his outdoor living space and look forward to taking part in future projects together.
