We can always find a way to protect our bodies from harsh conditions such as sun and rain. We can wear shades or sunglasses to protect our eyes from the sun, sun tan lotion to protect our bodies from being sunburnt, umbrellas to avoid getting caught in the rain and even winter jackets to protect us from the cold and snow. So why wouldn’t we want to also protect our homes from the harsh conditions.
At Proven Contracting, we believe that it is only fitting that we implement infrastructure that is able to accomplish this.
One such infrastructure is called an Awning. Awnings gained popularity in the 20’s and were used to cover windows and porches. They were used in order to keep the sunlight out and reflect the heat getting in the house.
It was extremely vital to keeping the home cool as air conditioners weren’t invented yet. Take a look at modern awnings in Randolph.
Awnings are placed above a porch or window, or basically anywhere over open area that gets a lot of exposure. This way, you could sit outside without getting caught in the rain or getting sunburnt. With an awning, you can even barbeque outside even when its raining.
Without awnings, your window panes can absorb a lot of sunlight and then transfer it into your home. Thus, increasing heat and unwanted sunlight within your home.
Over the years the style and durability of awnings have changed and the have become more than just an protective layer of our homes. Most homeowners use them predominantly for style these days as they can use their AC’s and blinds to keep the heat out and stay cool. They come in a variety of colors and materials that you can use to beautify your home or give it personality. Awnings are not just an aesthetic feature added to your home. They can be used to cover dining areas outside your home and protect you from getting wet when entering your home. Additionally, awnings can add an additional charm by decorating your windows while still providing all the benefits to your home.
