Patio Covers vs. Awnings: With TEMO Products, the Choice is Clear

Patio covers and awnings are two options that you will want to consider if you’re looking for a way to provide shade for your outdoor living space. While an awning is usually retractable, allowing you to adjust the amount of shade on your patio as needed, a patio cover offers greater protection against the elements and is designed to stay in place year-round. This may seem like a difficult decision, but once you consider the significant benefits that come along with owning a TEMO patio cover, the choice is easy.

At TEMO, we’re committed to only providing our customers with the highest quality products available. For this reason, we choose to manufacture patio covers instead of awnings. A patio cover from TEMO can outmatch an awning in the following areas:

  • Structural strength – While an awning has a roof that is made from soft materials such as woven acrylic or laminated fabric, the roof of a TEMO patio cover is constructed from extruded aluminum, a heavy-duty material that offers superior protection against powerful winds, torrential rain, and heavy snow fall.
  • Design – Our attractive design options are inspired by classic Italian architecture and feature gorgeous Mediterranean-style columns, giving your home a sophisticated look that cannot be achieved by an awning.
  • Comfort – While an awning can only offer basic protection from UV rays, our shade structures come with thermal technology that can actually deflect the sun’s heat, allowing you to enjoy milder temperatures as you relax on your patio during those hot summer afternoons.

After taking these factors into account, it is evident that TEMO patio covers surpass awnings in style and functionality, making them the clear choice for homeowners who are looking for a shade structure that will allow them to get the most enjoyment out of their outside space.
