When building a house, or remodeling your home, retractable awnings are an easy thing to cast aside. On the surface, they seem like an unnecessary expense that only adds detail, bragging rights, and little function to speak for, compared to all the other cool home tech that you can buy nowadays.
Everybody wants the latest in tech now, whether it’s the latest, sharpest-ever plasma TV set, newest iPhone, Amazon’s Alexa, or a $400 juicer with what is essentially a subscription plan for the actual juice. Not to mention the collection of other cool Kickstarter items on which it’s easy to pile up lots of smaller expenses to support some genuinely great ideas.
So it should be the case that exterior stuff like Awnings just doesn’t seem as glamorous (nor useful) of an expense to justify its price. But you’d be wrong to think that, as they’ve never been more popular, or more affordable.
The peripheral items are more important than most people realize. You wouldn’t invest $3000 in a beastly personal computer and “enjoy” its full power while sitting on a wooden tripod? Of course not. The wisest move would be to balance expenses so you can get the best experience possible – meaning you’d invest in a decent chair. Awnings function the same way for your home.
