Keep Your Cool This Summer … And Save Energy With A Retractable Awning Or Sun Shade Summer has arrived… and with it, all the fun outdoor activities that make Colorado such a wonderful place to live and work. Swimming… picnics by the backyard pool… cookouts on the back deck… and, for restaurants, a return to outdoor dining (and the extra revenue you gain by opening additional seating on your patio or deck). The heat is on! And, of course, so is your air conditioner. It’s not uncommon for a homeowner or business manager to set the indoor comfort system for their property to automatically maintain an acceptable level of coolness during Colorado’s hot summer months.

Restaurants: Now’s The Time To Plan For Fall Profits A Great Awning-Covered Outdoor Space Is A Money Maker Nothing beats dining in the great Colorado outdoors. So why don’t more restaurants offer outdoor dining to their customers? Many do – and the restaurants that do outdoor dining right make a lot of money with it.

Do Retractable Awnings Work? You bet they do! But you need a good product, professionally installed. A good retractable awning is designed to operate reliably to enhance the comfort and beauty of your outdoor space, whether at home, your office “break area,” or your restaurant’s outdoor dining space. Some of the best recent designs include weather-sensing technology which can close the awning during damaging wind storms, even if you’re away from home.

They add value to the property [...]
