Our outdoor shading solutions experts share their top tips on why now’s the time to get an awning

Awnings are traditionally associated with the summer months but actually, there are plenty of good reasons to get one whilst it’s quiet in winter. They can provide shade and shelter in all weathers, so read on for the secrets of why outdoor shading solutions make a great winter investment.

Provides shade

Perhaps the most obvious positive to having an awning installed in the summer is to be ready for the sun, however it can be just as persistent in winter. If you do wish to control the shade a little better on your patio, bringing in an awning can be the best way to sort it.


Whilst you may assume that getting an awning to shade yourself from the winter sun is going to leave you cold, this doesn’t have to be the case. We can easily install heating under any outdoor shading solution to make sure that you don’t miss any of the warmth.

Protection from the rain

If you’re sufficiently heated outside, then light rain isn’t an issue either for your awning! Enjoy your outdoor space in any weather, safe in the knowledge that you’re not going to get wet under an awning.

Little interruption

The summer months are the busiest for a business, not to mention the time where demand for awnings and outdoor structures are highest. By completing the job during a quieter time of year, you have plenty of time to get your business ready for summer and let everyone know about your new shading solution.
