Why you should consider buying a Retractable Patio Awning this summer:

As the days become longer and the weather becomes warmer, many of us turn our attention to our garden and patio areas and begin considering how we can utilise our outdoor living space. Installing a retractable patio awning can be a great way to maximise your outdoor area and create a relaxing atmosphere. Retractable patio awnings are designed to provide shade and protection from the sun and rain while still allowing you to enjoy the outdoors. With the addition of a retractable awning, you can create a comfortable and stylish outdoor area that can be enjoyed all year round.

We have outlined our top 5 reasons for why you should consider investing in a patio awning for your property this summer:

  • Extends your outdoor living space: There is nothing better than spending a long summer’s day outside, relaxing in the shade with your favourite book, or enjoying a glass of wine with friends and family. With a retractable patio awning, you can create a shaded seating area for your patio, protecting you and your guests from harmful UV rays. As the weather can be fairly unpredictable here in the UK, a retractable patio awning will also provide protection from light rain showers. No matter the weather, with a patio awning, you will be ready for anything, rain or shine.
  • Protection: Patio awnings can provide protection both indoors and outdoors. A retractable patio awning directly blocks the sunlight from entering your living space, effectively cooling down your room and providing protection for your furniture against the harsh glare of direct sunlight. UV rays are responsible for up to 45% of interior space damage; installing a patio awning will completely eliminate this.
  • Energy Saving: Retractable patio awnings can be a great way to reduce your energy bills. By shading your home from the sun’s rays, a patio awning can reduce the amount of heat that enters your home. This, in turn, can reduce the amount of energy needed to cool your home during the summer months.
  • Versatility:  Patio awnings are available in a wide variety of styles and sizes, making them a versatile addition to any home. At Rigby’s, our range of patio awnings are bespoke; no matter what size or style you require, we are sure to find the perfect patio awning for your needs and home, which will ensure your outdoor living space is stylish all year round.
  • Increased Home Value: Investing in a retractable patio awning can increase the value of your home. Outdoor living spaces are in high demand, and a patio awning can make your home stand out from others on the market. Potential buyers will appreciate the added outdoor living space and the protection provided by a patio awning.

Purchasing a retractable patio awning is a great investment for many homeowners and is definitely something you should consider investing in this summer. If you would like any further advice, please do not hesitate to contact us or discover our range of awnings.
