Awnings for your Brisbane Home
Living in Brisbane certainly has it's advantages and one of the major ones is the sub-tropical climate residents get to enjoy. This also means quite a lot of sunshine for a lot of the year (and sometimes a bit of rain) which can either be most welcome, or not, depending on who you are and how hot your house gets with the sun streaming in! Read on to find out more about Awnings and how Shade Sails R Us can help you get the most out of your house.
Awnings are basically a frame with fabric stretched over it and added to a window, doorway or entrance to keep out the sun and rain off. Everyone is probably familiar with what awnings look like and they have certainly come a long way since the 1950's and 60's where they were very popular with Australian houses. Today's awnings are modern, stylish, effective and add that special statement to your home (which can be as bold or subtle as you like, more about colours later!) What sets Shade Sails R Us apart from other companies is a) the quality of the fabric we use is the very best and we do not settle for inferior products that fade, rip, sag, stretch and tear. Everything from the fixing points down to the stitching used is of the highest quality to guarantee customer satisfaction, and b) our experience in the shade and awning industry for over 15 years has taught us many important things about shade structures, awnings and shade sails, which we happily pass on to our satisfied customers.
So how do you go about choosing the right colour for your awnings? Firstly, keep in mind that darker colours tend to block out more light, creating more shade and a cooler environment, which can also create a cooler space in your home where the light is being blocked out. Most often, the darker colours have a higher UV protection. They also show up dirt less than lighter shades of fabric. Contrasting colours look great on a house, so the awnings don't always have to match exactly to your existing paint colours. Ultimately, the decision is yours and we can offer advice if it's needed. That's what we're here for!
