A door canopy can be a valuable addition to your home and adds an array of benefits for your property too.
A door canopy, whether with sides or standalone, is a feature that helps put a personal take on a home, transforming it into a more unique and inviting place. But as well as the aesthetic appeal it brings, canopies custom built to your property supply many practical benefits too.
Protects your property
In the UK, door canopies can act as the perfect protection for your property, specifically for your front door. Due to the adverse weather that constantly fluctuates throughout the year, a bespoke canopy is designed to withstand the British weather.
With constant exposure to rain, wind, sun and snow, your front door will wear down and fading may occur as well as further damage. But a canopy acts as a shield for your front door, prolonging its lifespan and aesthetic appeal.
Ultimately, a canopy, such as a UV protected canopy, is a cost-effective solution to protecting your door from the elements.
Acts as a roof drainage system
Whether you’re looking for an Apex door canopy or an acrylic panel canopy, each one acts as the perfect roof drainage system.
As the rain pours on the bespoke canopy, it will create a shelter above the door, where the rain will then run off the edge instead. This will reduce the risk of any leaks inside while also protecting the door itself.
On a rainy day, a canopy will keep you dry, meaning you no longer have to frantically try to enter your home while it’s pouring.
It’s also worth noting that this courtesy automatically extends to your guests, allowing them to enjoy the same luxury while they wait for you to answer the door.
Adds style & value
The front door of your home is more than just a door. It creates a valuable first impression of you and your home to all visitors and passers-by. A custom-built door canopy, such as those found at RAM Canopy, can add value to your home by increasing its curb appeal.
Curb appeal is essentially how pleasing your home looks and what sets your property against the rest on your street. Having good curb appeal can make your home more attractive to prospective buyers, as well as help you add some additional value and potentially sell your home quicker.
Door canopies can be customised with different types and styles. By adding this stylish feature to the front of your property, it will help to create a sense of finesse to your front entrance.
If you’re looking to create a more hybrid cross between a porch and canopy, you can look at a door canopy with sides to decrease the cost but simultaneously increase the value of your home.
Ideal for the garden
While a door canopy is usually found at the front entrance of a property, it’s not uncommon to find a canopy in the back garden.
When it covers more than the immediate area in front of your door, the canopy becomes a patio canopy, more often referred to as an awning or even garden canopy. These tend to differ both in size but also in the location.
Whilst a door canopy is usually positioned above a front door, a patio canopy tends to reside at the back of the property due to its larger size.
A garden canopy can be found over the back door of a home, extending over a patioed area. This offers a private and sheltered area in the garden that is suitable no matter the weather.
A door canopy can provide many benefits to your property and front door, most notably protection from the adverse UK weather. It acts as the perfect shelter in keeping dry all while adding style, value and class to your property.
Whether you’re looking for an apex door canopy, mono or a singular acrylic panel canopy, it’s worth looking at custom-built canopies that will enhance your property’s value to achieve the ultimate benefits it will bring.
