2 Amazing Outdoor Solutions to Improve Your Summer

Think Outside the (Sand)Box: Easy Outdoor Solutions For Summer

When most homeowners hear “outdoor solutions,” they think of services such as landscaping, outdoor lighting, deck and patio construction, yard maintenance, pool installation, and pest control. However, some homeowners overlook two simple outdoor solutions that won’t break the bank and will instantly improve their summer experience and home’s curb appeal. What are they, you ask?

Drumroll, please…

Glass Garage Door Installation and Retractable Awnings!

Yes, you read that right. These two outdoor solutions have the power to add convenience to your daily life and solve several problems many homeowners face during the summer months. Let’s explore some of these problems and how glass garage doors and retractable awnings can provide solutions.

Problem 1: Increase in Energy Consumption 

Homeowners know all too well the effect of higher temperatures on their energy bill! The hotter it is outside, the more work is required from AC and HVAC systems to keep a home cool. Glass garage door installation and retractable awnings are two energy-efficient outdoor solutions that help mitigate this problem. 

Depending on where the sun hits your home during the hottest part of the day, a retractable awning can provide additional shade and protection from the heat. By keeping your house cooler, the AC doesn’t need to run as often or as long, reducing energy consumption and saving you money! In much the same way, insulated glass garage doors help keep cool air inside the garage during the summer months, which takes the pressure off the HVAC system.

Problem 2: How to Beat the Summer Heat

Many people have a love/hate relationship with summer because It. Gets. HOT! Kids want to play outdoors, but the risk of dehydration, sunburn, and heat exhaustion is constantly on parents’ minds. Put your mind at ease with an easy outdoor solution! 

Retractable awnings are the perfect solution for providing shade on a hot summer day. Protect your family and pets from the heat while enjoying a nice summer breeze under your new awning. Glass garage doors with low-emissivity (low-e) glass or heat-reflective coatings can also keep your garage cooler, offering a safe reprieve from the summer heat.

Problem 3: No Comfortable Space to Entertain

The best summer days are those spent with friends and family. Without adequate space, however, outdoor summer entertaining becomes very difficult. Retractable awnings and glass garage doors are both outdoor solutions that help solve this dilemma. 

A retractable awning installation automatically provides an extended living space for homeowners. Rain or shine, you and your friends can enjoy time together outdoors under the protection of an awning. 

Glass garage doors enable homeowners to push the boundaries of what the garage is capable of. With natural light and an unobstructed view of the outdoors, glass garage doors provide a space where the entertaining possibilities are endless. From karaoke parties to potlucks and movie nights, they can all be enjoyed in the comfort of your garage!

Problem 4: Too Much or Too Little Sunshine

Have you ever sat down on a patio chair to read a book only to have the sun glaring on the pages so intensely that you have to squint your eyes to see the words? Or perhaps you have a project to work on in the garage, but it’s so dark and dingy you can hardly see what you’re doing. Both of these problems are solved with our two unique outdoor solutions. 

With a retractable awning, you can get as much or as little sunshine as you’d like. You can leave the awning closed while you tan and open it when you’d prefer the shade. You can choose from manual awnings or maximize ease and comfort with a motorized retractable awning. Check out our blog to help answer the question, “Which Retractable Awning is Best For You?” 

A glass garage door utilizes natural light to enhance visibility. Even with the garage door closed, homeowners can easily maneuver throughout their space during the day without fear of tripping over something. Natural light from the outdoors also saves energy because additional lighting isn’t needed to see in the garage!
