Instant Outdoor Living With the Magic of a Retractable Patio Awning

Home » Blog » Instant Outdoor Living With the Magic of a Retractable Patio Awning

Outdoor living will almost always be an option once you add an awning to your patio or deck. You don’t need to invest in any grandiose building projects to expand your living space beyond the walls of your home. The installation of a patio awning solves the problems of blazing sun and drizzling rain that are keeping you from enjoying your patio through the seasons. When a patio is too sunny, it can feel like a broiler instead of a private haven. On the other hand, a rainy day in British Columbia spoils your outdoor space as well, but an awning provides sufficient protection to deflect the sun’s hottest rays or wet weather. As a result, an awning greatly increases the number of days when your patio will feel perfect and inviting.

How Awnings Work

A retractable awning attaches to the exterior wall of your home. Awning manufacturers have developed eco-friendly awning materials that last for many years in strenuous outdoor conditions. High-quality awnings for patio spaces are user friendly, and you can rest assured that the safety mechanisms will protect the awning when bad weather hits, even if you are away from home. A motor extends or retracts the awning fabric according to whether you want sun or protection from the elements. For your convenience, you operate the motor with a remote control. Additionally, automated motors outfitted with sensors detect shifts in weather, such as high winds, and open or close the awning as needed.

Awnings Aid Energy Efficiency

Blocking the blazing summer sun from an exterior wall slows down the transfer of heat to the inside of your home. The cooling system experiences less demand and uses less power. Alternatively, retracting an awning to let the sun hit a wall in the winter allows the solar warmth to radiate into your living space. In this respect, awnings demonstrate an advantage over a stationary roof that you cannot adjust with the seasons.

More Living Space Equals Greater Luxury

Whether you need a space of your own or want a place to gather with family and friends, a comfortable outdoor area makes your home feel bigger. If you’re tired of blocking out indoor noises with headphones while you work, you can take your laptop outside and focus with the birds chirping in the background. For homes that feel a little tight on the inside when you host a gathering, add seating beneath a retractable patio awning.

More Natural Light Is Good for You

Natural light, compared to artificial lighting, has a positive impact on the human body. Numerous studies have linked greater exposure to natural light to reduced rates of depression and better sleep quality. Although direct sun exposure is needed for our bodies to produce Vitamin D, you still benefit from indirect exposure to natural light underneath your awning. You won’t be relying on light bulbs. Instead, you get to work or play in a naturally illuminated, weather-protected space. If your work requires you to spend significant time in artificially lit indoor spaces, then a patio with an awning is the perfect place for you to unwind. You’ll get to lounge in comfort while escaping the harshness of artificial lighting that depletes people mentally.

Highly recommended! Cecil very effectively interpreted our vision and provided the post & beam samples that were needed in order to make our decision. We appreciate that the components were custom manufactured to fit our patio. Installation was expertly done by Peyton, Jon and Rahul, and was completed according to schedule, including cleanup. The finished product looks great and we’re now ready for summer. Thank you Mr. Cover All!

The free hanging custom unit installed 3 levels up looks beautiful, like it belongs, and not an add on to a 35 year old building. The 3 post and beam patio covers are stunning. Installers Rocky & Steve were personable, punctual, fast, clean and most all respectful to our members & their units. Thanks Brandon & Cecil for all your time helping us find exactly what would work for our situation and on budget as well.Thank you Cecil & Brandon.

We are extremely pleased with our new awning from Mr. Cover All. The process from initial consultation to installation has been painless, and the final result is a strong, sturdy, and attractive replacement awning. I am particularly grateful to Rahul who showed me how to change the pitch of the awning which I didn’t know was an option. This information completely resolved our difficulty with where to attach it to the house. Rahul and Adam did a great install, were friendly and comfortable and covid-respectful. Thanks, guys.
