Will My Awning Fade in the Southwestern Summer Sun?
No matter where you live, the summer season is more than capable of leeching the energy out of your body. The oppressive Southwestern heat, after all, will bear down on you with persistence until you finally retreat for the indoor shade.
But your energy isn’t the only thing the season can leave drained.
Specifically, the sun is also capable of leeching and fading colors, making a Sunesta awning your ideal solution for the months to come.
More Than a Little Sun-Kissed
When it comes to the summer season, no Southwestern state is quite as sun-soaked as the State of Arizona, which reportedly receives an average of 3,500 total hours of annual sunshine.
For example, “Yuma, Arizona tops the list of places in the United States with the most sun,” according to Current Results. “Generally it’s sunny in Yuma for 90% of the time from sunrise to sunset.”
As such, residents of this region are more vulnerable to the inherent damage that comes with high exposure to direct sunlight. This involves not only physical damage — like sunburn, melanoma, skin cancer, and more — but may also impact your property.
What’s more, it may ultimately damage both your outdoor and indoor property.
Forecasting the Unflattering Fade
“Radiation from [the sun], including ultraviolet (UV) radiation, enters homes through windows,” the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) explains. “UV radiation may increase the fading of furniture, carpets, draperies, and artwork.”
And if that’s what direct sunlight can do to your property through a window, imagine what your outdoor property is susceptible to. Specifically, your home may lose its value over time as the sun fades the exterior paint, bleaches outdoor installations, and more.
Thankfully, an awning can deflect sunlight and shade your home, thereby fighting the fade!
Additionally, Sunesta’s awnings themselves are fade-resistant thanks to their blend of synthetic fibers, including:
