How To Turn Your Backyard Into A Staycation Destination

Here in the NorthEast, it’s been a long, cold and snowy Winter. While shoveling the snow from walkways and sidewalks, it may seem that the warm, sunny days of Summer are far away. However, Spring weather is just around the corner! That means Summer is not far behind.

It’s not too soon to start thinking about what steps you should take to make your yard more comfortable and a place where you and your family will want to spend time this Summer. No one will enjoy a patio or deck if they’re baking in the hot sun. Not only is it unhealthy to have all that sun exposure, it is also uncomfortable.






We can help turn what could be an ordeal into an ideal!¬†The great thing about an awning or pergola is that it is completely customizable to your style. Start by choosing your fabric. We offer a wide selection of solids, stripes and patterns available in quality woven acrylic fabrics. Then, decide on the style of awning that best suites your needs. Does your outdoor space get too much sun? Is dining al’ fresco an unrealistic dream? We recommend a stationary awning. However, there are a variety of styles including retractable, free standing and pergola style awnings.

Remember, to always do your research before making any home improvement decisions. Your awning is an investment. Therefore, always ask your installer what the warranties are. For instance, at Dutchess Custom Awnings we offer a 10 year warranty on our fabrics, 5 years on our Somfy motors, and up to a 10 year warranty depending on the frame chosen.

We at Dutchess Custom Awnings have taken time this Winter to expand our product line. Stop by our showroom; we have a variety of awnings on display. With the touch of a button, you can see the ease of operation for all our retractables. As always, it is our commitment to suit the needs of our customers; that is why we always offer free, no obligation estimates at your home or business.

We’d love to speak with you about turning your sunny back yard into the perfect family “staycation” site!
