Last month, a record that was over a century old fell when our area experienced the coldest February 23rd since 1873! The average temperature last month was 16 degrees, which is 13 degrees colder than the normal average for February. With that in mind, give yourself a pat on the back for being a hearty soul and let’s all start thinking warmer as spring is just around the corner.
With the new season coming, the sun will be beating down on your porch in no time, and though you may daydream of welcoming this with open arms now, you’ll soon remember that shade can be a welcome relief from the glare.
I know that personally, I look forward to grilling salmon on a cedar plank-my favorite-on the back deck; however, the porch sits on the west side of the house and, when it’s sunny outside, is unusable. To solve for this I planted several arborvitae trees over a decade ago, which are just now providing the perfect cover for our outdoor living space. If you would rather not wait the 10-15 years it takes to grow a good shade tree, you may want to consider an awning. Jennings offers a Sunair Retractable Awning that extends with the flick of a switch and retracts when you prefer to catch some rays.
These awnings come in a variety of sizes and colors so that you can select a style suited to your taste and home. Not only do they add an attractive finishing touch to your home exterior, they increase energy savings and reduce UV exposure, among many other benefits.
Visit our showroom today to have one of our representatives demonstrate the ease of operation for these awnings and view fabric swatches to find the perfect match for your outdoor oasis.

Remember, think spring and hang in there!
