If you love being outdoors and want to further enhance that space for year-round living, you should consider the awning and shade options from Awnings by Haas. With 20+ years of industry experience, owners Jim and Susan Haas provide some of the best products and ideas suitable for both residential and commercial applications which can be operated manually or through motorized means.
Awnings and shade products allow you to create privacy and enjoy the shade in the hotter months of summer and also provide a way for you to still enjoy the outdoor life and soak up some sun during the colder months of the year. Awnings by Haas offers premier products made to the highest standards, including retractable deck and patio awnings, solar screens and shades, retractable roof systems, and even infrared heaters.
“We’re the frosting on the cake for outdoor spaces,” smiled Susan. And when it comes to outdoors spaces, Awnings by Haas knows how to make things classy with the unique applications they have to provide shade and shelter.
Among the products they offer, design, and personally install include highly durable louvered roof systems, which can transform an outdoor space to a year-round living area. With a simple touch of a button, you can open and shut the louvers to provide the ultimate and shade and sun cover. Awnings by Haas also offers Sunesta® retractable awnings, which provide sun protection that is 15 degrees cooler, and custom-built screens to help protect you from the elements. To further extend your time outdoors, Awnings by Haas can install Infrared Heating Systems that keep the heat in during the cooler months. This way, you can start Spring sooner and linger into Fall longer.
“Solar shades are a great way to increase the time you can spend outside entertaining and dining, using the best of the sun and the shade,” explained Susan. “Our shades can make 35-degree temperatures outside go up to 65 degrees with an outdoor fireplace, and some have been tested to withstand winds up to 50 miles per hour.”
In other words, awnings and shades help you adapt to the seasons and can be customized to enhance the beauty of your property. Awnings by Haas assisted one customer who had no luck with other companies when it came to installing a full 28-foot screen to accompany the outdoor space at their new modern Westside home. Other companies wanted to split that screen in half and support it with a post in-between the sections. Awnings by Haas was able to provide one full screen, successfully meeting the clients wants and expectations while also beautifying the entire space. Awnings by Haas also travels outside the Kansas City metro area and recently fulfilled an order for and installed extremely large shades in a Topeka home.
Awnings by Haas also offers coverings for canopies and enclosures for carports. However, Susan advised to check with your neighborhood first to see if those are allowed.
With a passion for what they do and a desire to assist customers with exactly what they need – whether shelter for an event space or a classy touch to an outdoor living area – Awnings by Haas provides proven systems of sun control for both comfort and protection. All products are professionally installed and come with strong warranties.
According to Awnings by Haas, people love being able to close in their lanais, especially if they are situated in an area where trees are sparse. Homeowners can stylishly and functionally close the entire porch for full year-round usage.
