5 Reasons Aluminum Patio Awnings Are a Smart Choice

Looking for ways to enjoy the backyard year-round that is also functional and stylish? Consider custom aluminum patio awnings as an option when looking for a solution for a patio cover. There are many types of awnings you can choose for your patio, but permanent aluminum awnings will give you the best option for the price.

Here are five reasons aluminum patio awnings are a great idea for your home:

  1. Outdoor Shade Opportunities
    Florida heat can be relentless, and any possibility of relief is a must have. Aluminum patio awnings provide shade and protection from the sun’s UV rays. Depending on the size and location, aluminum patio awnings give you the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors more during the summer months.
  1. Budget-Friendly = Saving Money
    Another benefit is the cost savings involved with window and patio awnings. The shade provided by aluminum patio covers substantially reduce the energy needed to cool the interior of your home. This reduction results in less electricity used and hence a lower power bill! Talk about a win-win! Additionally, aluminum awnings tend to cost less than canvas awnings.
  1. A Host of Styles & Variety
    Aluminum patio awnings are available in a variety of styles for any home construction. The only limitation is your imagination. If you already have a patio in the backyard, we can simply add a custom aluminum awning. If not, then decide on your location and size of where you want your patio awning and let Dulando handle the rest!
  1. Ease of Maintenance
    Aluminum awnings are easy to maintain due to the type of metal and paint used during installation. Aluminum requires a quick wash just a few times per year and the protective paint ensures there will be no rust issues for years to come.
  2. Extend Your Outdoor Living Space
    Lastly, porch awnings let you extend your home’s outside space so you can entertain and enjoy more of your porch/patio area. The combination of shade and relief from the sun’s rays allows you to spend more time outdoors with friends and family.
