If you’re considering an awning over your door or a door canopy, you've come to the right place. Our products are created with one goal in mind – to increase the curb appeal of your property at an affordable price while also providing additional shade and light rain protection.

Why Use An Awning Or Canopy?

Protective door awnings and canopies are usually installed to perform one of three main functions:


Most people don't need door awnings that accomplish all of the above; they have a balance of needs. For example, commercial properties may care a lot about interior UV, interior heat, and rain protection because they want to protect merchandise and have a comfortable entry for customers. Homeowners with porches or pools and outdoor seating areas may benefit more from external sunshades and not interior UV or rain protection.


Door and window awnings can accomplish different things depending on how you intend to use the space. Two different frame styles are used for door canopies, and each type has its strengths depending on your needed performance.

Door Canopy

Canopies are usually archly rounded or elongated dome awnings. These awnings have excellent water resistance and runoff because of their shape. With a shorter projection, this shape is ideal for awnings where space is limited (such as storefronts in commercial areas or homes with small stoops).


Door awning canopies provide excellent rain and interior shade protection, but their smaller size makes them less effective at providing exterior sun protection. Also, canopies are usually manual, not motorized, making them slightly more cumbersome.


Canopies are ideal for awnings that need:


Lateral Arm Door Awning

Lateral arm awnings are the traditional angled or flat awnings that extend using two or more folding arms. This style of awning is reliable and very popular. It can provide convenient shade, protect areas from the weather, and block UV light.


While they look great, this style may present unique challenges. It’s bigger, so it requires a larger footprint, which can limit installation options. Still, this kind of over-door awning or door canopy provides excellent weather protection.

Benefits of Door Awnings

Installing a brand-new awning is one of the most cost-effective ways to add value to your home or business. They come in different styles, shapes, colors, and sizes to fit any architectural style.

Homeowner Benefits

Awnings help keep the rain off your doorstep, porch, or patio area and increase privacy and security. Their sleek, modern designs and attractive styles complement your home and can make your property more appealing.


A well-placed door awning can help lower your air conditioning bill by shielding the interior of your home from the sun. Awnings also help keep the rain off your doorstep or porch area.

Business Benefits

An awning is an easy way to make your business stand out. The fabrics we use make it possible to add your own logo, message, or contact information.


A good awning or canopy is easy to open and close so that you can adjust it quickly. Businesses often prefer styles that incorporate remote controls and/or smartphones and tablets for ease of use.


Awnings are perfect for high-traffic areas. They provide pedestrians with a place to pause, take a breath, and take a closer look at your business.


Eye-catching awnings and door canopies can aid branding efforts. An awning over the door at the front of your establishment with your brand logo and contact information printed on it is a great way to increase brand awareness.
