Use extra support brackets when mounting long awnings.
Over a wet winter, mold or moss may grow on fabric awnings and will have to be removed.
The United States Department of Energy (DOE) has released data that supports the use of awnings to help reduce the home's dependence on air conditioning.
The DOE reveals that homeowners who have awnings installed over their windows are able to reduce temperature rise in their homes by as much as 60 to 80 percent.
Metal awnings normally cost more than similarly-sized fabric models.
