Order awning for the terrace or balcony

We thought about it for a long time - awning or parasol? Our terrace faces south. That's why the sun shines fully on our terrace from midday onwards. On the one hand, that's very nice. On the other hand, we could only use the terrace as soon as the sun disappeared behind the lime tree that grows in our garden. Depending on the summer month, this was only possible in the late afternoon. So we had a view of the garden. Because of the heat, we were only able to use the terrace for a few hours a day. It was soon decided that we would order an awning. It quickly became clear that we would buy the awning online. Buying something in a hardware store always means a longer journey for us because we live in the country. Ordering an Amazon awning online for the terrace is quick and easy. Just which one?

Since we work at home, we also want to use our terrace for work in summer. Savor the Outdoors at work was our goal. This is not a problem with the laptop. Since the sun shines on our terrace for several hours, we decided against a parasol. The stand needs space. In addition, a parasol must move with the sun's rays. It was therefore clear that we would order an awning. But: which awning should we order? The offer is great.

An awning for the terrace and balcony

Since we live in a rented apartment, a permanent installation was out of the question. For us, ordering an awning means being flexible. We wanted to change the building as little as possible. Another consideration was that we would want to take our sun protection with us when moving to a new apartment. After two moves, this is definitely within the realm of possibility. Even though we currently feel very comfortable in our apartment. Thirdly, the awning should be easy to install. Petar is very talented with his crafts. But we didn't want to put in a lot of effort. After all, we didn't want to invest a large amount of money. There are awnings with a lot of shishi. That wasn't important to us. It should only reliably protect us from heat and sun. So our decision was soon made.

Buy a clamp awning for mobile outdoor enjoyment

There are different models for this too - some are simpler, others more luxurious. There are awnings that can be extended electrically. But there are also those that you can simply move with a rotary crank. This was exactly what we were looking for. It should be as simple as possible and not prone to repairs. The more complex it is, the greater the risk that installation will be lengthy. At the same time, we wanted to order an awning that could be easily assembled and used again in another location if necessary. An awning with supports met all of our needs. It does not require any major intervention in the local conditions. All we had to do was wedge two poles between our first floor neighbor's balcony and our patio. The awning is installed in between – et voilà! Our garden awning has been ordered.

As I said above, Petar is skilled at crafts. He looks at the assembly instructions, sorts screws, pipes and fabric. And here we go! I only have to lend a hand once when he adjusts the awning on our neighbor's wooden balcony. Overall it takes a few hours to assemble. This means that nothing will stand in the way of our outdoor enjoyment when working on the terrace in the future. How about you? Do you also work on the balcony or terrace? What do you do to make this as comfortable as possible?

When should you order awnings online?

We bought our awning in late fall. Then the summer business is over. Prices usually fall because demand falls. The shops also want to clear their warehouses. The selection may not be as big as it was in the summer months. However, if you are flexible, you can get good bargains in autumn.

How much does an awning cost?

The price of an awning depends on the type of awning. An awning with motor control or one that is permanently installed costs more than a clamp awning that is opened with a hand crank. On the other hand, it is important whether you need fitters for the installation. Hardware stores and fitters charge between 200 and 500 euros for installation. It is definitely cheaper if you have manual skills yourself. However, the price for awnings has no upper limit. This can cost between 1000 and 3000 euros with all brackets. It depends on where you install the awning. We paid just 120 euros for our clamp awning. Petar installed it himself and we are very happy with it.

What types of awnings are there?

Which awnings you can order online varies. Come most often folding arm awnings* for use. There is also:

cassette awning*
semi-cassette awnings*
side awning*
drop arm awning*
Conservatory awning/conservatory shading*
