Shade and Weather Protection
As a result of the Covid 19 outbreak, restaurants, hotels, and hospitality spaces will be interested to invest in outside protective dining spaces for their patrons. There will be a need to increase the available serving area and space, so more physical distancing between tables and diners is available. Right now restaurants are virtually closed and ofcourse more concerned with re-opening the business. When things finally open back up and we have an opportrunity to go to our favorite restaurant again, many will want to sit outside instead of in tight inside booths. Pergola Awnings are the percfect solution to give diners more space while also protected from the hot sun and inclement weather.. We have already heard from some restaurant that have started thinking about what they need to do to increase social and physical distancing etc. and have contacted us about Pergola awnings.
As the Summer season creeps closer, last year's memories of hot, unusable decks come back. A nice, quality, well made awning completes the deck and makes it a magnate for fun. So what are the factors in choosing one? First, limit your investment to retractables made and serviced by a financially solid company that will be around to service the unit. Another consideration should include the sales and installation team you work with. Are they knowledgeable, professional and ethical? Lastly, the specific model you choose, the fabric, frame color, motorization and accessories, should be selected to reflect the taste of the home owner, with the counsel of the awning professional. Big box stores and internet sales often produce buyer's remorse.
Not every window is appropriate for awnings, but many still get baked by the Summer sun, heating up window glass, radiating UV damaging rays and heat gain into your home. Solar Screens may be the solution. Installed on the exterior preferabbly or on the interior as an option, Solar screens will save you money in many ways. They reduce Solar heat gain, lowering electric Air Conditioning bills. They allow your HVAC unit to cycle less frequently, extending its lifeand deferring replacement costs. Screens allow you to enjoy the view, but block damaging UV rays. This protects your drapes, floors, furniature and carpet.
By covering our 17 X 35 upper deck, our new Pratic pergola by Sunair, allows us to take dinner reservations and book wedding receptions with complete confidence. We expect this investment to completely pay for itself in less than 1 1/2 years.
