Protect Your Deck From The Sun

If you live anywhere in the US you know that this summer has been record setting hot and it has been extremely hard to keep cool.

We are in Delaware and it seems like it has been in the high 90’s with a real feel of over 100 degrees for the past two weeks if not longer.  We do have a baby pool on our deck that Shae uses to keep cool and while Shae is in the pool you can usually find Melinda under the patio umbrella.  The patio umbrella provides a decent amount of shade depending on the time of the day but I would really like to have a sun awning so that our whole deck would be shaded all day long. If I really had my choice I would get a retractable sun awning so that when it isn’t in use or in the winter I could store it.  If we wanted the deck uncovered we would have that option but if the weather and sun were too much we would have the option to cover the deck.  Having the option to store it would help preserve it allowing it to last longer since it would be protected from the wind, rain and snow.

We were just at the beach yesterday and just about every house we saw had a sun awning and I am assuming that is to help combat the sunshine during the summer.  I also like the look that an awning provides because we saw one house that didn’t have one and it stuck out like a sore thumb.

I am not sure if I will ever get one but it would be cool to have one.
