At Hudson, we care about preserving the planet now and for future generations. Our complete line of long-lasting "green" products does much more than enhance the beauty of homes and businesses. They reduce energy costs, shield from harmful UV rays and extend the life of your home by protecting floors, furniture and carpets from fading. Considering an addition? An awning over your patio or deck will provide additional space at a lower cost.
We’re proud participants in a vendor-recycling program and support "green" education by running CEU training programs for architects about specifying green fabrics and membranes.
Beautify, preserve and add value to your property with the addition of our custom-designed and manufactured awnings, canopies, shading systems, metal and membrane products.
Reduce Energy Consumption and Feel the Savings Benefits
Awnings help conserve energy inside your home by blocking the sun’s heat in the warmer months. In most homes, more energy is transferred through glass windows and doors than through any other structure. On a hot day, more energy comes through one square foot of glass than through an entire insulated wall. Solar radiation takes almost 20 percent of the load on an air conditioner. Studies by the American Society of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers show that awnings can reduce heat gain by 55 to 65 percent on southern-facing windows and 72 to 77 percent on western exposures.
You’ll enjoy the beauty of the outdoors since you won't have to close blinds or draw your draperies. And you’ll save on energy bills and help preserve the environment too!
Be Cool…and Stay Protected From The Elements
