Aluminum awnings have tackled the outdoor elements for many years before fabric awnings became more mainstream. Sometimes the simplest solution has the least maintenance. Aluminum awnings are energy efficient and that saves you money! The style, venting, color and angle of aluminum awnings give you greater resistance to direct sunlight, wind, snow and rain. Best of all you never have any operating costs, there are no adjustments to make, and the only maintenance required is a simple cleaning now and then.

Aluminum Beautification

Aluminum awnings keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter! Awnings can reduce direct sun heat by 70%. Keeping the hot sun and cold weather outside makes temperature control easier and helps lower your indoor cooling and heating costs. Rated for snow loads, and built to last with quality maintenance free aluminum or vinyl, aluminum awnings are an ideal solution for your home.

Enhancing Architecture

Our aluminum awnings have been manufactured and installed since 1960. All are custom made to cover windows, doors, porches and small patio areas.
Aluminum window awnings protect your furnishings from the sun’s harmful rays and help reduce air conditioning costs. Door and porch awnings help make your entrance more hospitable meaning that your family and friends won’t get soaked waiting to come in during inclement weather.

Just wanted to let you know that I love my new awning – it looks great and with the rain this past week it really came in handy! Thanks for the prompt and courteous service.

I’ve meant to write and thank-you again for the retractable awning you installed at our cottage on Eagle Lake. It’s absolutely wonderful – your installers were very pleasant and efficient as well.

This letter is long over due, We are the people who brought our trailer to you in June 2007 and although you were very busy, you agreed to make a new canvas and cover for it. I want to thank-you very much for doing this for us, especially when I know it put you under pressure time wise, as we wanted it for camping in July. It took a professional to do it and I was much impressed with the sewing and measurements. It smells so clean and new. It was a pleasure talking to you on the phone and also working with professionals as you people are.
