Purposes for an Awning

Awnings were originally used to help keep homes cool in the era before air-conditioning. They are traditionally made of fabric that tops windows, decks, and patios. Previously made of canvas and operated by hand, new technologies and innovative fabrics allow for retractable awnings made of durable materials like vinyl-coated polyester and acrylic fabric. Despite the invention of air-conditioning, awnings remain the best patio coverings for shade thanks to their timeless function and design.


Awnings provide homeowners with extra shelter. By covering their outdoor space, homeowners can enjoy their outdoor amenities without worry of the weather. Shade yourself and guests from the harsh sun in the summer and stay out of the snow in the winter. By providing shelter, awnings make your deck cooler and warmer from season to season without the use of fans or heaters. Window awnings allow homeowners to let in fresh air even in the rain. Furthermore, because awnings are attached to your home, they help regulate the temperature of your interiors and ultimately keep your energy costs low. Welcome guests confidently with an overhead awning and keep your doorway always dry!

Quality and Cost

Adding an awning over your deck is a much more cost-effective investment than building a roof. Furthermore, retractable awnings are so attractive, they even add to your home’s resale value.

For superior performance, high-quality awnings need high-quality fabrics that allow them to last for years. Canvas is the traditional fabric used for awnings, but it generally only lasts three to five years. Vinyl-coated canvas, polyester, and acrylic fabrics are more resistant to mildew and fading, better protecting your furniture, rugs, and other outdoor décor.  Our awning selection includes awnings made from Sunbrella® fabrics which are specially engineered to withstand the trials of the outdoors.

Cared for properly, a sturdy awning should last between 5 and 15 years. Ensuring your awning’s longevity is as easy as extending it to dry when wet to prevent mildew, and retracting or even putting it away in severe weather or a harsh season. If the metal frame of your awning remains intact, over time you may only need to replace your awning fabric, giving you an opportunity to liven your outdoor living space without completely depleting your wallet.


Make your space your own, inside and outside your home. Awnings extend the living space of your property and give you another chance to show off your personal style. Choose your favorite designs like classic stripes, modern basics, and scalloped or straight edges. Small window awnings add a charming touch to your home’s exterior, and shade canopies make every summer get-together intimate and special. Celebrate sunny days with an elegantly shaded dinner party, and gather around a warm fire in the winter: patio awnings dedicate space especially for you and your guests to get out and enjoy everything the outside has to offer.
