Awnings are a popular choice for additional building structures for restaurants, but did you know that plenty of other businesses can take advantage of this popular signage choice? If you’re interested in updating your storefront or building, here are a few benefits you could experience if you opt for adding a custom-designed business awning.
When designed and installed by qualified professionals like the team at Dawn’s Sign Tech, an awning will last a very long time. When you have a business awning put into place, make sure that the company is using high-quality materials that will protect your business for years to come.
They Increase Usable Space
Weather can pose a problem for businesses, especially if they rely on outdoor space for seating. Cafes and restaurants, for instance, depending on their outdoor space to be useful to customers as well as to draw in more customers. A commercial awning will ensure that those spaces can be used, even in times of rain or extreme sunshine. Awnings are also great for putting over sidewalk space to protect signage or clearance racks. Finally, an awning also provides a welcome place for your customers to put away umbrellas, arrange their items, and generally prepare themselves to enter your store.
They Provide Protection
While the awning creates more usable space for your store and can even protect outdoor dining areas and customers, a well-placed awning can also provide extra protection for the store itself. Awnings block excess sunlight, so if you have a big glass storefront, an awning will make sure that sunlight doesn’t stream in and cause UV damage and fading to your merchandise or flooring.
They Offer Branding Potential
A bonus to the practicality of a good business awning is the branding potential. The installation of an awning gives your business a lot more surface area that you can print with the business name, logo, and even contact information or opening hours. Giving your business more visibility like this is a sure way to create recognition in the neighborhood and drive sales.
They’ll Help You Cut Costs
When you consider the protection that an awning can offer for your business, keep in mind that all these benefits translate almost directly into dollars. Their durability means they don’t need to be replaced often, so you can enjoy the branded marketing and influx of customers for a long time. And because they protect the store from UV rays and heat from sunlight, you’ll experience lower energy bills since you don’t have to keep the building cool artificially. If you opt for a retractable awning, you can choose to let the sun in during the winter to cut down on heating costs, too.
