Good Information On Patio Awnings

By Effie R. Duvall

Finding the awning you want is very important. Patio Awnings come in different sizes, colors, textures and materials. Setting them up properly is very important and they offer good instructions to help you.

Retractable awnings usually are made form a heavy canvas. They provide nice shade as the sun does not penetrate the fabric. You can order them and hang them up in a day, with a little extra help from someone. They usually have aluminum frames with a bracket design. These awnings also come motorized or manual. Motorized is nice because if you live in a windy area it will be easy to fold up. When using a manual awning it usually takes two people to set up.

Pop up awnings are good for a quick set up and an easy way to get instant shade. It takes two people and you slowly spread it out and slide it up. They come in pretty big sizes and there is nothing to put together.

Solid roof covers are another idea to cover your patio. They are made from alumawood and protect from the sun and rain. They have do it yourself kits with good directions.

When looking for a wood cover, many people like lattice. It looks nice but only provides 50% protection. If you like the wood then you can add a cloth that can be bought in most hardware stores and lay it over the top for better protection. These types of awnings are best built by a professional unless you know what you are doing.

Living in the snow or in a high wind area is a problem for a lot of people. There is a really good cover that a person can even stand on. It is a polycarbonate panel. This has a 98% sun block. This also comes in a kit form so you can easily follow the step by step directions to build it.

Putting up an awning takes a little time. When the wind is strong you will want to roll it up. The awning attaches to the house and poles slip into brackets. They have legs to hold your awning up that attaches to the ground. Some companies offer a guarantee saying they will replace it if it has wind damage. This is worth checking into. There is a small locking device so it dose not slip. The awning rolls up like a shade so is hardly noticeable when put away.
