If you’re a commercial property owner and you’re looking for a practical and attractive addition to the exterior of your property, then you need to consider metal awnings from Select Awnings. We enjoy some beautiful weather in Boca Raton, FL – and while this is usually a blessing, it can prove problematic for businesses that would like to use their outdoor spaces. With blistering temperatures and blazing sunshine, it’s usually pretty uncomfortable to be in outdoor areas for a long time. Our metal outdoor awnings can be the solution in this case, providing a range of practical benefits that will help you to utilize your outdoor spaces all year round. Read on below and you’ll undoubtedly see the value available through awning installations at your property.
One of the most obvious advantages of a metal awning installation is that it is going to stand up to any environmental pressures with consummate ease. When properly maintained, metal awnings can last in excess of 30 years without seeing any significant deterioration or decay – and aluminum awnings are also pretty hardy when they’ve been properly treated. While modern fabric awnings do hold up against weather well, they cannot really compare to metal awnings’ durability – which is second to none.
Aluminum vs. Other Metal Awnings
When it comes to metal awnings, you actually have a few different material options that you’re able to choose from. While many metal awnings are made from a copper based material, other awnings are made from aluminum – which has a different set of pros and cons that might make it more or less suitable for your property. Aluminum tends to be cheaper than other metal awnings, and it’s also lighter – which makes the installation process more straightforward. Many people also consider aluminum to give a more modern appearance, which may or may not be a positive depending on the aesthetic that you’re aiming for. Most other metal awnings are a little more durable, but come with a higher upfront cost.
You might think that going with a metal awning for your property means that you won’t have any visual options at your fingertips – but that isn’t the case at all. In fact, there are a range of color choices that allow you to find something that will match up with the rest of your property’s aesthetic design. Needless to say, patterns and styles also vary and can be adjusted to suit your needs.
When you’re a business owner, the last thing that you want is your customers suffering from overheating and feeling like they need to go elsewhere. Fortunately, if you decide to install metal awnings you’ll reflect heat away from your building, keeping everybody cool on the inside. While this also gives an expanse of shade on the outside of the property, perhaps the other major benefit is actually that it can block out sunshine that would cause fading and discoloration on your furniture. This keeps the general aesthetic of your property up, and saves you from having to invest in expensive replacements.
