Local Awning Experience: Does It Matter?
Yes! Local Knowledge Can Make ALL The Difference For Your Project
Even during the cold winter months, your neighbors in Denver and all along the Colorado Front Range are making the smart choice to add an awning or enclosure to their outdoor space.
Why? Several reasons:
- Now’s a great time to start an awning or enclosure project at your home or business… awning installations are easier to schedule than during the busy spring and summer months, and you can often get a great deal this time of year on some of the best awning products on the market.
- Enclose or cover a patio or other outdoor space this time of year, and you’ll realize immediate savings on your energy bill… when the patio is protected from the elements, the adjacent indoor rooms are easier to heat (and keep warm and comfortable).
- A new awning or enclosure will immediately add beauty – and value – to your property, whether for your own enjoyment, or to spruce things up for a real estate offering. (Did you know this is one of the best times of the year for home sales?)
- And the enjoyment of your outdoor space doesn’t have to come to a screeching halt just because Old Man Winter has blown into town! Cover or enclose your outdoor space, and you could still be looking at several opportunities year round to enjoy your bit of the wonderful Colorado outdoors.
Of course, you can go to your local big-box store and grab an inexpensive awning – the sales clerk might arrange for a subcontractor to deliver and install it, or they might even tell you you’ll be able to install it yourself – but don’t be fooled.
In the end, you’ll save time, money, and lots of headaches if you go with a professional awning company. And you’ll do even better if you go with local experts – pros who know the details about our local Denver and Colorado market (and climate) that can make all the difference to your awning project.
You Want Your Awning Project Done Right… By The Local Experts
Just as there are many reasons to launch their awning projects now, your neighbors are also discovering the wisdom of going with local awning professionals rather than big-box-store contractors or (even worse) trying the do-it-yourself route.
First, there’s the issue of the products involved. It’s often the case that the local home improvement store stocks the sort of awnings their corporate buyers send to their inventory… and those awnings might be great for Florida, but not stand a chance against the often-fierce Colorado climate.
Local awning experts know which products will work in your situation… and which ones won’t.
Second, there’s the matter of installation. Most folks who’ve tried to install their own awnings would tell you they’d never try that again! In fact, it’s not uncommon for homeowners to call the local professionals to come out and re-install an awning they tried (unsuccessfully) to put up themselves.
And the contractors from the big-box store probably do a decent job on many different kinds of projects, from flooring to doggy-doors… but you’re much better off going with pro installers who do lots of Colorado awning installations. And that’s all they do.
And if you can find a company with employee installers, rather than one that subs-out their installations, you’ll be assured that you’re getting the best installers in the business… the ones who really know what it takes to install lasting beauty and durability specific to Colorado.
Finally, you want a local awning company dedicated to customer relationships, rather than one-off transactions. If something goes wrong later, or when it’s time to add another awning, enclosure, pergola, or gazebo (or upgrade what you have), you want to know you can go back to a firm you can trust.
In Denver and Colorado, there’s both art and science to the awning business. That’s why your savvy neighbors have made the choice to go with local experts when it’s time to add or upgrade an awning or enclosure. If you’re looking at all the great reasons to have an awning installed at your Colorado property, follow their lead and call the local experts. Don’t get left out in the cold
