When many of us think of a commercial awning we think of how great they are at shading our storefront and keeping the sun out of our eyes as we help our clients. Those are definitely some great reasons to add an awning or canopy to your business or storefront, there are a few more that may leave you asking yourself: Who haven’t we gotten an awning yet?
Cut your energy costs:
An awning not only shades your commercial property, but it can also reduce the indoor temperature. They can help cut down on cooling costs by preventing the sun’s rays from entering and heating up your business area, thus helping to cut your cooling cost. A study done by PAMA (Professional Awning Manufacturers Association) shows that some New England business owners can save over 50% on their cooling costs by installing awnings on their building.
Outdoor signage can help bring in new customers:
When your prospective clients are making a special trip to your business, they’ll be able to find you much more easily because your awning can be seen even if your storefront can’t. A custom awning or canopy will also help you stand out in your shopping center or strip mall, which can lead to a significant increase in walk-in traffic.
Business branding and advertising:
You’ve worked hard to develop a great brand, and you should be prominently displayed on your storefront so that everyone can see it. Awnings with custom graphics are a great way to showcase your business and let all traffic around you know where you are and what you have to offer.
One thing these three examples have in common is that having an awning added to your storefront or office building can and will increase revenue. So what are you waiting for? Isn’t it time to contact the professionals over at New Haven Awning?
