The Many Benefits Of Entrance Canopies Today


Entrance CanopiesIt’s funny, but there are a few things people can do to their home to embellish it, add to it or improve it, yet which often go unnoticed, at least, on a conscious level. Some things seem to have a greater impact on the sub conscious, and entrance canopies are just such a case in point.

Entrance canopies, door canopies and even door surrounds all tend to have more of an impact than people tend to assume, because people don’t tend to step back and admire a porch or an entrance canopy – they just get on and use it.

It’s like a picture frame. When was the last time you commented on a frame, rather than looking at the picture itself? Perhaps occasionally it happens, but by and large it’s something which you take on board at a sub conscious level, yet without it you would very quickly become consciously aware of the fact that something wasn’t right, or that something was missing, seemed smaller, incomplete or could be improved.

Entrance canopies offer three real advantages, any of which are worth considering whatever your circumstances.

The first benefit of an entrance canopy or door canopy is of course the level of protection afforded from the elements. In the UK we’re fairly familiar with the elements In fact, it’s a subject invariably introduced as early as possible into almost every conversation we ever have. People overseas can’t understand our obsession with the weather, but when you get as much of it as we do, it becomes a hot topic.

But whether the weather is wet or whether the weather is hot, it will almost certainly be doing the opposite a couple of hours from now. This is what makes entrance canopies so convenient. Coming home from work or the shops and standing by your front door getting soaking wet whilst you sort your bags out and hunt for your key is not great.

Having a door canopy to protect you means that you don’t have to panic or get as wet. That benefit alone makes entrance canopies such a superb solution, and because they’re not as large or bulky as porches they provide a solution that anyone can make use of, either for the front door or the back door.

Many of those people who live in terraces which have no front garden, with the front door opening straight onto the pavement find themselves facing a soaking every time they arrive home, yet an entrance canopy can easily be fitted which doesn’t require planning permission in most cases and can be fitted in a matter of minutes.

This is also great for when guests come round, or the postman knocks with a parcel. Your guests don’t get a soaking, your mail arrives dry and when you open your door the entrance canopy protects you from welcoming a deluge of precipitation straight in the face or onto your carpet.

But the second benefit of entrance canopies and roof canopies is that they provide a very attractive feature that helps your home look different from other properties in the area.

This is so important if you’re considering selling your home. Many property developers have door canopies fitted because they know that it can make a property look very much more attractive, and by helping a property stand out, you help its chances of being noticed and perhaps sold.

If you’re looking to sell your home then entrance canopies can be a quick and affordable way of helping your property stand out a little more against the windows full of similar local properties in the estate agent’s office.

Thirdly, door canopies add value to a property. This is indisputable, because again many property developers have used this exact technique to add value to the home. As well as helping it to stand out and look more attractive having entrance canopies fitted adds far more value to the property than the cost of the canopies themselves, meaning that you can’t lose.

Having entrance canopies or door canopies manufactured from Glass Reinforced Polyester, or GRP, means that they are cheap, affordable, lightweight and can be fitted in minutes. GRP is also weather proof, waterproof and will not rot, warp or bed, and needs only a hose pipe or a damp cloth to bring it up looking brand new again. For a modest outlay and few minutes fitting entrance canopies can make a real difference to your home.
