Stay cool this summer: the benefits of awnings

The Garage Door Company Scotland

As well as garage doors, we install Markilux awnings at homes across southern Scotland, including Glasgow, Kilmarnock, Edinburgh and Dundee.

As temperatures begin to rise and the sun does its job at last, finding ways to stay cool becomes a top priority. Awnings offer an excellent solution to beat the heat and enhance your outdoor living experience. Here’s how investing in one of our fabulous Markilux awnings this summer could make all the difference to your enjoyment of your outdoor living space.

Enjoy a cooler home and patio
Even in southern Scotland Markilux awnings provide much-needed shade, helping to reduce the temperature of your home and outdoor spaces. By blocking direct sunlight, they can significantly lower the indoor temperature, reducing the need for constantly wide open windows.

Protect your furniture and décor
The sun’s harsh UV rays can cause damage to your furniture, flooring and certain outdoor items. Awnings act as a protective barrier, preventing fading and deterioration of your belongings. This ensures your indoor and outdoor furnishings remain vibrant and in good condition for longer.

Extend your living space
With the addition of awnings, people of southern Scotland, your patios and decks will become extensions of your living space! Whether you want to enjoy a family meal outside, host a summer party or simply relax with a book, awnings create a comfortable, shaded area that can be used even during the hottest parts of the day.

Markilux awnings look good!
Our awnings are available in a variety of styles, colours and materials, allowing you to choose an option that complements your home’s appearance. They add a touch of elegance and charm, boosting your home’s curb appeal. Customisable to fit any window or patio size, Markilux awnings suit virtually all homes.

Increase your property’s value
Adding awnings to your home can increase your property value. Prospective buyers often look for features that offer something that’s different or “exotic”. Let’s face it, awnings at homes in Scotland are still something of a rarity! Be different – make your home special!
