It’s a likely story for Greater Philadelphia residents: You walk out to your outdoor living space to sit and relax for a few minutes, but the warm sun lulls you into a peaceful nap. When you wake up, you’re suddenly a few shades redder! Backyard patios and decks are wonderful additions to any home in order to expand your living and entertainment space, but lounging outside requires some proactive action against UV rays such as the use of hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen. The struggle is real when it comes to choosing between spending more time outdoors and not exposing yourself to the sun’s harmful rays.
Luckily, Paul Construction & Awning has the solution. Our team of expert awning installers wants to install your very own Philadelphia awning this spring. Whether you’d prefer a large awning spanning the width of your patio, a window awning, or a door awning, Paul Construction has professionally installed Sunesta products for years.
So You Want An Awning…Now What?
Realizing that you’d benefit from installing a Philadelphia awning over your outdoor space is just the first step. Then you have to select which of the wonderful options provided by Sunesta you prefer. One of your first decisions will be about the fabric type. Awnings can come in multiple fabrics, and some customers have trouble choosing between canvas and acrylic awnings. We recommend that, when you shop for your Philadelphia awning, you opt for Sunesta’s unique acrylic fabric.
While canvas and acrylic tend to be similar in terms of pricing, they vary in their other characteristics. Canvas tends to fall short in a few areas:
- Flimsier due to the cotton fibers
- Does not withstand the elements, which makes it prone to mold, mildew, and rotting
- Likely to fade from sun, dirt, and pollen
- Difficult to clean
Sunesta has developed their own line of durable acrylic fabrics for their products as an alternative to canvas. The waterproof fabric helps prevent rotting, and the method of dyeing the fabrics leaves them vibrant for many years to come.
Another decision is where you want to place your awning. Do you want a door awning? We install the Sunesta Sunbrero, a retractable door awning that is customizable to fit your needs. Looking for a window awning, instead? The Sundrop offers the ability to choose between shade and sunlight inside your home by retracting or extending your awning over your window.
