Benefits of Outdoor Shading Solutions

Benefits of Outdoor Shading Solutions

It’s almost that time of year again, where barbecues are plenty and we tend to spend more time enjoying moments outside. We’re talking about summer!

This summer, extend your interior comfort to the outdoors with exterior shading solutions. No only do they add appeal to your outdoor space, they also carry many benefits for residential and commercial spaces.

Outdoor Curtains

1. Outdoor Curtains
Outdoor curtains are great for adding privacy and dimension to your porch, patio, gazebo, or other free-standing structures. Outdoor curtains are also a cost-effective and less permanent alternative to adding a shaded and enclosed area in your back yard as opposed to building sun rooms.
Benefits of outdoor curtains include:

  • Enhanced privacy
  • UV protection
  • Protection from mosquitos and other pesky insects

Outdoor Retractable Awnings

 

3. Retractable Awnings

Retractable awnings are a great solution for virtually any patio, deck or terrace.

With a retractable awning you can enjoy the outdoors in rain or shine as they are designed to protect you from harsh heat and UV rays during sunny days, and keeps you dry during rainy times.

When motorized and paired with wind and sun sensors, awnings offer even more benefits and convenience as they can be programmed to retract on their own when the winds are rough, and open to shade your home when the sun is out.

 

Retractable awnings are beneficial to both residential and commercial spaces.

Not only are exterior screen shades a great addition to your outdoor structures, they can be used on your windows and doors as well giving you the ability to comfortably enjoy your indoor and outdoor living spaces.

Using them on the outside of your windows allows you the same benefits of interior screens such as privacy, lighting control, and energy efficiency, while also saving your interior space.

When installed to enclose your outdoor spaces, exterior screen shade benefits include:

  • Increased Privacy without blocking views
  • Heat absorption for a cooler outdoor space
  • UV protection
  • Bug Protection
