If you want to make your outdoor space look nicer and more comfortable without having to break the bank, consider an outdoor canopy for decks. You’ll be able to relax on your deck without worrying about the sun’s harmful UV rays. At Van Nuys Awning Co.®, we offer custom shade canopies for decks and can help you find one that perfectly fits your needs and budget. 

Let’s look at some advantages of installing a sunlight canopy on your deck. 

Enhances Your Home’s Curb Appeal

A well-designed and -installed deck canopy can drastically improve your home’s exterior aesthetics. The best thing is that these canopies come in a wide selection of colors, styles, and materials. This means you’ll have an easy time finding one that complements the style of your home. 

A stylish deck canopy makes your outdoor area look more inviting and instantly turns your home into the envy of the neighborhood!

As if that’s not awesome enough, a canopy can also make your small backyard feel larger and more welcoming. 

Offers Protection Against the Elements

As the name implies, deck sun shades offer protection against the harsh sun. They’ll also keep your loved ones safe against heavy winds, rain, and other extreme weather conditions that could make it difficult to enjoy time outside.

During snowy days, a high-quality canopy can prevent the buildup of ice on your deck, which could create a slipping hazard. This means you can safely use your deck regardless of the weather conditions. 

Increases Your Home’s Energy Efficiency

If you’ve been trying to lower your home’s energy consumption and save money on power bills, here’s a nice idea that won’t hurt your wallet – install a deck canopy! 

Shade canopies for decks help reduce the heat entering your home by blocking out some of the sun. This helps keep your indoor space cool in the hot summer months and cut down your air conditioning costs. 

During winter, a canopy helps block cold winds and keep your indoor space warmer. This helps reduce your heating costs and save you a fortune on energy bills in the long run. 

Protects Your Deck Furniture From Sun Damage

Sunlight can be unforgiving to your deck furniture and fixtures, especially during the summer months. Prolonged sun exposure can cause your deck seats, tables, flooring, rugs, and other accessories to fade and look old. This can turn your deck into a real eyesore. 

Installing a canopy or durable deck sun sail can save you such headaches and help your outdoor furniture last much longer.
