Reasons to Get an Awning

An awning can enhance your outdoor living experience and provide a functional and stylish addition to your home. Here are a few ways in which an awning can benefit you and reasons to get an awning.


  • Weather protection

Awnings provide protection from the elements, such as shade from the sun and shelter from the rain, creating a comfortable and functional outdoor space, no matter the weather. The functionality provided by an awning is ideal for the summer when outdoor living is desirable. No matter the weather, an awning allows you to enjoy meals outdoors, relax comfortably or create a shaded area for your children to play. Outdoor awnings can also help keep your home cooler in the summer by blocking the sun, which can help to reduce energy bills by reducing your reliance on cooling mechanisms, such as electric fans.


  • Extended living space

Installing an awning above outdoor areas, such as your patio, will create additional living space by creating a flow between your indoor and outdoor areas. A sheltered under-awning area is perfect for adding outdoor furniture protected from sun exposure and rain. What's more, you could get awning additions such as lighting systems or an awning heater to create a beautiful outdoor living room with a cosy atmosphere. 


  • Flexibility

Retractable awnings are more practical and flexible than fixed awnings or pergolas. Retractability gives you control over the amount of shelter or shade you want at any given time, allowing you to adjust your outdoor space to the changing weather conditions or your preferences. While our awnings are stylish, you may not want them to distract from your property's beauty. Therefore, retractable awnings are a practical choice because they provide the benefits of shelter when required without being a permanent feature of your home.


  • Compliments your Home and Lifestyle

Awnings from John Glen come in various styles, colours, and materials, so you can easily find one that compliments the look and feel of your home. Our bespoke awnings offer a clean, modern look and can be customised to match your home's exterior and personal style. Additionally, our vast range of awning types means you can find one that compliments your lifestyle; for instance, we have electrical awnings for customers preferring convenience and manual awnings for customers desiring a more hands-on approach. We have awnings for everyone!


  • Longevity

Our retractable awnings are made from high-quality, durable materials that can withstand the elements and resist fading, tearing and other types of damage. They are long-lasting and will save you money on repairs and replacement costs. In the unlikely event of a fault, our warranty policy can offer you peace of mind that your investment will be covered. 


Overall, an outdoor awning is an excellent investment for any homeowner looking to improve their property's comfort, energy efficiency and value. John Glen is here for all your awning needs, offering bespoke, high-quality awnings.
