The Major Benefit Of Metal Window Awnings, According To Fixer Upper
According to "Fixer Upper" star Joanna Gaines, metal awnings are the best options for protecting your windows against water damage because of their durability.
Metal awnings last several years while offering better protection against harsh elements and ruinous UV rays. They’re also able to withstand hail and hurricane wind forces.
Gaines also recommends metal awnings over fabric ones since they’re lower maintenance, adding, "I don't want to have to redo the fabric, you know, every three or four years."
Unlike fabric, canvas, or wood structures, metal awnings won’t decay or lose their shape; they also won’t get moldy or discolored, saving you money on repairs or replacements.
Metal awnings are low cost and come in a variety of style options, making them the perfect way to add aesthetically pleasing architectural elements to your home.
They’re also extremely easy to maintain since they don't require any periodic repainting, and all you have to do to clean them is wipe them down with soapy water.
