An awning from Awnings and More in Calgary will help you maximize the time you spend outside while increasing your home’s energy efficiency and resale value.

Here are different types of awnings you can choose from:

Open Awnings: Awnings and More suggests that open awnings are a starter awning that offers reliable protection from the sun. They work well over terraces and patios and are securely fit to the wall, ceiling or rafters. You can adapt your open awning to changing weather conditions using a cover board, drop down valance or variable adjustable incline.

Box or “Full-Cassette” Awnings: This option is very elegant in appearance and can provide shade for both small and very large areas. Cassette awnings provide shade out of a secure box which is fitted to the wall, ceiling or to a rafter. When the awning is rolled up into the box, the material and mechanisms are protected from winter storms, rain and dirt. This protection in bad weather and debris can help reduce the need for maintenance and repairs and ensures your awning lasts for years to come.

Drop Arm Awnings: Drop arm awnings are a popular choice for shading individual windows, helping to reduce the amount of heat coming into the house and lower cooling costs. They can be custom-made to cover the entire window or just a portion of it. Drop arm awnings can also be used to shade your patio or deck space.

Side Shade Awnings: These shade walls provide protection from the sun and maximum privacy for your deck, balcony or patio. Not only does it keep your outdoor living space private and shaded, it can also protect you from the wind, so you can be more comfortable spending time outdoors.

Motorized or manual retractable awnings: All of the awning options above are retractable and can be motorized. That means you can retract your awning with the touch of a button or turn of a handle and control the amount of shade you want depending on the weather and time of day.
