When you are entertaining or relaxing outdoors, there are times when you may want a little extra shade around your home. Otherwise, the hot sun may reduce the comfort level for you and your guests. On the other hand, more sunshine may be preferred on cooler days, which might be a problem on patios or porches with permanent roofs.

There is a solution to this dilemma: having a beautiful, functional awning installed on your home.

There are two basics types:


Stationary awnings have a fixed metal frame and are in a fixed position on the building providing sun and rain protection as well color and three-dimensional look to your home or business.


Retractable awnings provide the capability to move the awning in and out easily either manually or motorized providing the capability to extend and retract the awning either manually or with a motor. It provides sun protection for outside sitting and eating areas an protection for children playing outdoors from the UV rays. It can also provide light rain protection in most situations.

No matter what your home’s size, color scheme, or architectural style, there is an awning that is perfect for it. Whether you want to display it on your front porch or install it over your deck or patio in your back yard, an awning will provide you with plenty of shade and retract easily when you need it to. In other words, an awning is the ideal multifunctional outdoor accessory!
