Why now is the best of times to have outdoor awnings and roller shutters installed.
Stay home. Stay safe. It’s life, but not as we know it.
In a world where COVID restrictions and lockdowns are the new normal, many have relegated home renovations to the back burner.
Don’t let the pandemic put your plans on hold – it may be the best time to invest in your home.
Right now, even those with nine-to-five jobs are travelling less and spending more time at home – with those extra hours you can properly research and plan your renovation.
Where we spend our money is changing too. Less driving means petrol and vehicle expenses drop. Fewer opportunities to dine out and entertain mean lighter credit card bills.
The pandemic has also halted holiday travel plans for most of us. The money you may have spent on your overseas vacation could be well-spent, making your home more secure, energy-efficient, and comfortable.
A great makeover can also increase the value of your property if you decide to sell. And with the current record-low interest rate, financing a reno has never been cheaper.
Make the most of every area
Now that our homes are the epicentre for not just the usual meals and leisure, but full-time work, exercise, schooling, and more, we need to make the most of every area.
Attractive outdoor spaces can draw potential buyers in with the promise of an easy, breezy outdoor lifestyle, and do wonders for your health and happiness as well.
Installing a retractable folding arm Outdoor Awning is one of the most affordable ways to give your home a stunning visual lift and much needed extra living space.
They are easy to retrofit, and even in these unprecedented times, Half Price Shutters can do it safely with a minimum of fuss and cost.
Our Virtual Appointments and Contactless In-Home Appointments do away with face-to-face contact, COVID-safe installation practices ensure we can all stay safe while your home is enhanced.
Modern outdoor awnings sit concealed in a neat headbox on the wall of your home. When needed, they are operated manually or by remote control. The awning arms unfold horizontally, spreading an attractive covering of waterproof, UV resistant acrylic fabric up to 4 metres out from the wall.
Choose from a wide range of styles and colours to make an elegant source of poolside shade or a safe space for children to play protected from harmful UV rays.
For an extra touch of luxury, add smart sensors. They automatically adjust the awning to follow the sun, adjust to rain and retract in strong winds, so you don’t have to lift a finger.
Privacy, protection, security, and comfort
In a time when the future is so unsure, it is no surprise that modern Roller Shutters are becoming Australia’s most popular external window covering.
Our roller shutters offer a retreat from the world. They are the stylish, but affordable way to secure your home against break-ins and storm debris, while also blocking out noisy neighbours and the harsh heat of the summer sun.
Throughout the pandemic we have been swimming against the COVID current, rolling out our quality security Roller Shutters from our factory in Seven Hills, New South Wales.
Made of high-quality aluminium alloy coated with a fade and abrasive resistant enamel finish, they can take whatever the weather throws at them.
They can be operated manually or motorised. The protective curtain of interlocking slats can be stopped at any point to block out, or let in, as much light and fresh air as you want.
When shut, they completely block out sunlight – perfect for shift workers or families with young children, especially during Daylight Saving months.
Both the environmentally aware and the budget-conscious love them too because they help prevent the loss of energy from your home and reduce your power bills.
Are you ready to roll?
Now is the time to get ready for summer and entertaining when we get out of lockdown. But it’s perfectly understandable to have concerns about having tradespeople at your home, due to risks associated with the COVID-19 virus.
Fortunately, enhancing your home with outdoor awnings and roller shutters no longer needs face-to-face contact.
