Intense Heatwave after the Downpour

Heatwave, Caribbean Blinds, External Shading

The official day of summer was last Friday and we were all blessed with a blissful weekend of sunshine but the streak has not lasted long as we experienced a heavy downpour of rain, once this has all cleared we are set up for a scorching heatwave with temperatures hitting as high as 29 degrees. Many homes and gardens across the country may not be prepared for the hot weather due to the wet spring we experienced this year which has made some homeowners reluctant to invest in external shading solutions making them vulnerable to sun damage and uncomfortable conditions.

As alluring as the sun can be it does come with its consequences that can be damaging to our health causing sun burn, skin cancer, sun stroke and dehydration to list a few. This is why it is vital to make the necessary alterations to your home and garden to avoid these health risks and improve your lifestyle. As a specialist in the industry we offer sound advice on how to effectively combat solar heat in the home and garden with our range of innovative modern day external blinds and outdoor living solutions.

With most homes comprising of glazing this can cause internal room temperatures to rise, overheating the home to create an unbearable atmosphere whilst adding solar glare to the equation, something that can be avoided efficiently with external blinds. View our shading guide to understand the in-depth science on the effects of solar heat.
