Here we are in mid February already. Spring is rapidly approaching and there is no better time to start thinking about shade. As the sleeping giant of awning interest activity begins to stir we would offer this gentle reminder. Get your act together and let's get this show on the road!
Our business is like many others, it's cyclical. What we've seen over the years is that depending on what Big Mama Nature has to say, you could yearning for shade in mid March or in other years not until late May when the ravaging rain clouds have removed. But there is one common theme. Now is better than later. Here's why:
1) Off season incentives from manufacturers are on the home stretch. Take advantage with a preseason sale that will be gone before you know it.
2) What does spring bring? Hopefully good weather and blissful smiles. But another common spring theme come from those same generous manufacturers. That theme is price increases. They are a fact of life. All prices can't follow the generous NJ Sales tax reduction of (-.125%) over the past two years. Most everything costs more over time. Our products are no different and these increases happen around the spring.
3) Make sure you have it when you want it. Learning about awnings and deciding if one is right for is a fairly painless process. But it does take some time. Work loads are a little lighter now so scheduling can be arranged and expedited. Addressing the issue now makes sure that you are kicking back in the coolest of all comforts when the Sun comes blazing along.
So to summarize, if you want to pay more without a sale while you wait longer and miss part of the season then it would be a good idea to hold tight. We will still be ready and happy to help, just as we are right not in mid February, but it's better to be prepared. Study for the test ahead of time, or cram it all the night before? We all know how that works out! Talk to you then.
