Tips to help you decide what colour awning to get

A retractable awning is a great addition to your home or business for many reasons. But once you have decided to purchase one, you will need to pick which colour suits your needs best, so what do you need to consider when choosing the colour of your awning?

– Choose to suit the exterior of your home – a blue or green awning may complement a tan colour home but may clash with a brick house that has an orange tint instead a grey or black may look better. A yellow or red works well with a white home.

– Fading – you may want to consider colours that are less likely to fade when choosing your awning. Although all of our awnings are durable, strong and made of the best materials, prolonged exposure to the sun over several years will eventually cause fading. Blue, green, white and yellow awnings tend to resist fading faster than a red or orange awning.

– You may also want to factor in what colours are best at hiding staining or general marks. Black and dark greys are great at hiding staining or marks but a light-coloured awning such as white will highlight any stains.
