Our residential awnings, whether stationary or retractable, enhance the architecture of any home and turn the ordinary into something special. Be sure to visit our Residential Portfolio for examples of our workmanship. Custom awnings shade windows and doors, protect interior furnishings and reduce summer temperatures appreciably. Rooms, porches, decks and patios that are too hot to handle, become the most popular living areas- instantly. Awnings are "green" or environmentally friendly. See www.awninginfo.com for the latest info on energy savings.
Choose from a wide array of styles, fabric colors and patterns to fit your decorative tastes and needs. Awnings can be designed for year-round use with permanent steel frames and are extremely durable withstanding the sun, rain and strong winds. Sidewalls or 'curtains' that roll up provide sun and wind protection and even include clear 'windows' to brighten up a dreary day. Most retractable applications can be motorized using Somfy products or can be easily operated by hand.
