Do Retractable Awnings Increase Home Value?

Before deciding on whether or not to install a new retractable awning, most homeowners will ask themselves if this new fixture will increase the value of their home. The answer is yes!

A retractable awning not only easily installs against your home to more space inside, but it also provides an easily accessible shaded outdoor living space in which you can relax. Installing a new retractable awning will automatically increase the value of your home since it will create additional space that did not previously exist.

Most modern American families manage living with very minimal space but an awning can add comfort and style for you to easily extend your living space to enjoy with family and friends.

Most homeowners believe that the only way to increase the value of their home before placing it on the market is through expensive renovations. Think again! In addition to creating more space inside and outside, a retractable awning adds curb appeal which can increase your home’s value even more.

And in case you’re still on the fence about installing a new retractable awning in your home, studies show that awnings can save energy and money by keeping your home cooler and requiring less air conditioner usage. It is estimated that 10% to 69% of electricity can be saved when an awning is properly installed in a home.

With all of this knowledge, it’s safe to say that retractable awnings are a wise investment and can save homeowners a lot of money in the long run.
