Retractable awnings are a fantastic way to update the exterior of your business and make it more visually appealing, but it also can also help to save you money and increase your profits. As with any investment, it’s important to understand the value of your retractable awning beyond the simple aesthetic appeal.
Here are just a few ways your retractable awning can help you save money from the moment we install them.
Spend Less Money than on a Full-Scale Renovation
Many times, retractable awnings are designed to shade an outdoor patio or seating area. Especially with these circumstances, we find that many property owners are often weighing the pros and cons of launching into a major construction project in order to erect a traditional permanent structure. Retractable awnings provide many of the same benefits of traditional roof structures, such as rain protection and heat reduction, while also giving property owners the option to offer their guests warm, relaxing sunshine on those beautifully mild spring days.
Expand with More Usable & Versatile Space
Whether you’re looking to expand or simply want to make your current outdoor area more usable, a retractable awning can add incredible versatility to the space surrounding your store, restaurant, or office. Retractable awnings are customized for the specific needs of your space, so you can decide exactly what would complement your plans most.
Increase Your Foot Traffic
For businesses on the main strip and for those who are slightly off the beaten path, awnings make your business stand out and allow passersby to see a bit about who you are. By integrating brand consistent colors and strategic graphic printing, you’ll never have to worry about getting overlooked.
Experience Valuable Energy Savings
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, “window awnings can reduce solar heat gain in the summer by up to 65% on south-facing windows and 77% on west-facing windows.” Reducing the amount of energy needed to cool your facility translates into significant cost savings, which you’ll start to experience even with your first bill.
