We’ve all heard it before; the sun can cause damage to the things it touches. Things like buildings, decks, cars and of course our skin. Sunlight that streams through windows can also fade the interior of the building. Carpets and furniture are especially at risk to sun damage caused by the UV rays that pass through the window. Carpets can fade and furniture can become discoloured from the effects of the sun.
Outdoors, your patio and deck is vulnerable to the effects of sun damage. Direct sunlight on your patio or deck can fade your finishes and discolour your outdoor furniture. Not only does exposure to the sun over time cause damage to your patio or deck it can also make the floor surfaces and furniture hot to the touch and uncomfortable to use.
Direct sunlight can also cause damage to your car’s interior and exterior. It can dull the exterior finish and dry out your leather interior. It will cause your car’s finish to fade and discolour.
Sunlight will also cause damage to your own skin, as we all know. Exposure to direct sunlight can cause our skin to burn, if we do not treat our skin with sunscreen. Sunscreen is one defense against the damage that the UV rays of the sun can cause to our skin. Another defense is to seek shade.
You can easily create shaded areas in your home by adding awnings to your home. Not only will awnings protect your home and possessions from the damaging effects of the sun, but they will also add value to your home.
Awnings used on your home over windows will shade the window from the sun, thereby greatly reducing your homes interior exposure to the sun’s damaging rays. You will protect your carpets, flooring and furniture from the damage that direct sunlight can cause.
Installing an awning over a deck or patio will protect the area from the suns harsh rays. Your patio and deck flooring will be protected from damage caused by sunlight. The flooring and furniture will not be hot to the touch as your awning will shade the area so that you can fully enjoy your deck or patio.
Installing an awning on your home to protect your car from sun damage is another great idea. Your cars exterior finish and interior space will be protected from the sun when you protect it with an awning.
Awnings will also help protect you and your family from the damaging rays of the sun. Awnings that cover windows will shade you indoors from the direct rays of the sun. Your awning over your deck or patio or porch will shade you and your family from the sun while you enjoy the great outdoors. Your enjoyment of your outdoor spaces will be enhanced with the use of an awning.
It’s simple and easy to protect your home, your belongings and your family from the damaging rays of the sun. Install an awning and reap the benefits of a healthier lifestyle and a happier home.
