By: Matt Fletcher

For very little cost fitting your home with GRP door canopies can make a big difference to them. As well as helping to make your home stand out from those around you it makes your home look considerably smart. But along with adding to your homes kerb appeal there are other advantages to having these canopies installed.
In this article we take a look at some of the other benefits to be gained from installing GRP (glass reinforced plastic)door canopies on your home.
1. It is important that you make sure that you select the right size canopy for your door in order that it provides adequate shelter to those stood underneath it, especially when it is raining. Also making sure that you get the right size canopy will ensure that the door itself is protected from the weather so no longer will you come home to find mail hanging out the letter box when it is raining soggy.
2. The installation process for these is very simple. Generally after the order has been placed and the measurements taken the canopy is created at the factory. Then after it has been manufactured one or two fitters will appear at your home on the date chosen and fit it. In many cases it may take around them 10 to 20 minutes at the most to fit it securely in place.
3. Glass reinforced plastic (GRP) door canopies although made using lightweight materials are extremely sturdy and strong. Plus this material is one that needs very little upkeep to ensure that the canopy remains looking good as the day it was first installed. In fact you will discover to keep them looking good you just need to on occasion wipe them over with some warm soapy water.
4. As we mentioned above the installation of these canopies is very simple due to the making of them being carried out at the factory. However, if you go for a wooden door canopy all the work is carried out at your home so you are going to be faced with lots of dust and noise whilst the work is done.
Also it could take the company several hours to complete the work so you may need to actually arrange to have time off work whilst it is being carried out. Whereas with a GRP door canopy the fitters may well not need you to be at home to install yours because they will have the necessary equipment to do so without needing access to your home.
5. Of course one of the main advantages to having GRP door canopies installed is that they cost a lot less. Not only are the materials in expensive but because the installation time is very short then your labour costs are kept low as well.
As you can see there are quite a number of benefits to be had from installing GRP door canopies. But along with these you should be aware that this material is very adjustable so being able to fit it around any features which are unusual or unique on your home will not be a problem.
