Enjoying a Patio Awning

Now that the Christmas period is well and truly behind us, we can now all look forward to the nicer weather arriving.

Now is the ideal time to consider purchasing a Patio Awning and having it installed in good time for the sunny spring weather.

A Patio Awning has many functions. It looks smart and protects you and your furnishings from the UV rays of the sun. It keeps the glare out of your room and provides an area of shelter to sit under if you are outdoors. Read the rest of this entry »

Can You Use Awnings In The Rain?

So far this year we have had some fairly inconsistent weather. One moment it is glorious sunshine, then all too quickly it is raining. This can make enjoying the outdoors quite difficult!

There are many reasons why people would choose to have Awnings installed to their homes. Of course, the primary motive for an Awning would be to provide shade and protection from the sun.  Awnings do a great job of this. They can extend your home at the press of a button giving excellent UV protection as well as a cool retreat when then sun does come out! Awnings will also keep your home cool and furnishings protected from fading with the rays of the sun.

With all this inconsistent weather a lot of people are buying Awnings to use, not only for sun protection, but also for sheltering from the rain. Is this a wise choice?

A good quality Awning will provide shelter from the rain, the fabric, whilst not necessarily being waterproof, will not let water penetrate it unless there is a significant amount of water pooling on the fabric. If you were to let water pool on your fabric to this degree it would break the Awning! Read the rest of this entry »

Garden Shelters

Getting outdoors is great for everyone but often the weather can stop us from really enjoying ourselves. Here is where a garden shelter can create the perfect outdoor atmosphere.

Primarily garden shelters provide shelter from either the sun or rain. Most shelters will do both. Patio Awning are really good garden shelters as you can choose to have them out when you need them and put them away into a nice and tidy cassette when you no longer require it. This is all done at the press of a button so it makes things really easy.

Patio Awnings are generally designed for providing shelter from the sun however they can be also used in light rain. Generally the angle of the awning should be greater than 14 degrees which will allow the water to effectively run off the Awning. This stops water pooling on the fabric which will lead to damage. You can use you Awning with less pitch than this, however you will need to be even more vigilant to stop water pooling. Read the rest of this entry »

At the time of writing we are experiencing a pretty cold winter. Some of the weather conditions have ground the UK to a stop. It is hardly the time that people are thinking of Patio Awnings.

Now we are getting to the end of the worst of the weather, when the sun is shining you can once again begin to feel it’s warmth and it immediately makes you look towards the summer in the hope that this year, we will get a good one. Cold winters should equal warm summers. Also the laws of probability should state that due to the number of poor summers we have experienced we should be on for a hot one at last!
