If you’re here it’s probably because you’re looking for a garden shade solution and you’ve taken an interest in awnings. Awnings are a fantastically stylish way to shelter a patio, porch or lawn while all the while adding value to your home. Not only do they perform several useful functions, they boost the curb appeal of your property.
With regard to their functionality, there are numerous benefits to having an awning. A retractable awning will extend your living space by allowing you to make full use of your patio or porch. Almost everyone would like to get outside more often, and with an awning installed either on the front or the back of the house you’ll be far more likely to relax outside.
And you can do so secure in the knowledge that you’re providing a safe, sheltered environment for your friends and family. By sitting beneath an extended awning, you’ll benefit from an ultraviolet protective factor of 50+ which all of our awning fabrics provide. That’s the equivalent of blocking out 98% of all the sun’s harmful UV rays.
You’ll also save on your cooling energy bills by reducing the need for air conditioning in the home. By installing an awning over a window you’ll instantly create enough shade over that window to reduce the heat inside the home. Take full advantage of that reduction in temperature by cutting back on your air conditioning usage.
Why Choose A Budget Awning?
Our budget awnings represent the best value retractable awning you can find on the market today. Without compromising on quality, we’ve produced an awning which does away with the extra frills and what you’re left with is a no-nonsense, easy to install sun shelter which will instantly add value to your home.
When you’re looking at awnings there are a number of things which will inflate the cost and quickly see it skyrocket into the thousands. We’ve addressed each of those issues in innovative ways to ensure we can deliver the best value possible with our budget awning.
We’ve shaved down the width of the aluminum awning frame by one third of an inch – enough to bring down the cost considerably whilst having negligible impact on the durability and stability of the frame.
We’ve reduced the number of fabric colors offered to just six which again represents a cost saving we can pass directly on to you.
We’ve also got rid of some of the extras, both optional and offered as standard on our other models. So whilst our other awning models allow for easy adjustment of projection angle, the budget models require loosening of the nuts and bolts to perform this function.
Whereas our other models allow for a fabric cover change in less than 30 minutes, our budget models do not allow for a cover change.
Furthermore, our budget models are not available with motorized operation nor do they have the capacity to be converted to motorized operation at a later date.
Whilst it may seem like we’ve stripped the budget awning down to the bare bones, it should be noted that many awnings available on the market are made to these exact same standards and yet you’d still pay more than $1000 for them.
How Long Will It Last?
The modifications made to the budget range have been made in the areas which provide the best cost saving without compromising the build quality. Therefore, you can still expect many years of use from a budget awning. Our warranty covers the awning for at least two years against any defects but, with proper maintenance, you can expect many more years use.
