Types of awnings in Beaver Dam

When choosing an awning for your outdoor space in Beaver Dam, unpredictable weather will be a major consideration. With many types of awnings to choose from, look for materials that hold up to and block the sun’s UV rays to protect you and your outdoor furniture. Consider how fabric versus metal styles of awnings hold up to different outdoor conditions. In Beaver Dam, water-resistant awnings can keep you dry on rainy days and resist mildew growth. Retractable fabric awnings are suitable for poor weather conditions because they can rolled up. If you want an awning that’s easy to clean, look for machine-washable options.

  • Retractable awnings: Roll-up awnings can be pulled back to adjust coverage. Motorized options operate by remote or touch of a button, while hand-operated awnings typically have a crank. Retractable awnings are a great option for Beaver Dam residents, since they can be rolled up to prevent damage during storms.
  • Stationary awnings: Stationary awnings can transform an unshaded outdoor area into a space you can use more frequently during both sunny and rainy weather in Beaver Dam. For those who want to save money while improving the yard, fixed awnings provide budget-friendly options.
  • Commercial awnings: Commercial awnings add character to the facade of a business, while shading doors and windows to protect customers and merchandise. Typically, fixed options work well for commercial applications.
  • Window awnings: Window awnings provide homeowners with many benefits, especially shade and decreased cooling costs. Spear awnings also add curb appeal and help maintain a home’s value. Choose adjustable or stationary models.
  • Aluminum awnings: Aluminum awnings are generally stationary, though you might find some retractable options. Aluminum is durable, cost-effective, low-maintenance and water-resistant. For Beaver Dam residents, aluminum provides protection from the region’s varied climate — sun, rain and snow.

Many Beaver Dam awnings companies offer installation and awning maintenance, such as cleaning and application of protective coatings. Some provide winter storage for customers who need to remove awnings to prevent damage during cold months. Many companies also offer custom awning design and solutions for gazebos and other indoor/outdoor structures. When choosing an awning company, look for warranty information on materials and a guarantee on installation workmanship.
