Door Awnings

If you are looking for door awnings and canopies, you have come to the right place. For more than 35 years, we have been the leading provider of retractable door awnings. Our door awnings are created with one goal in mind to increase the curb appeal of your home or business at an affordable price while also providing additional shade and protection.

Door awnings are usually installed for one of three main functions:

Most people don't need door awnings that accomplish all three things; 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 sunshade and not interior UV or rain protection.

Basically, 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 awnings, and each style has its strengths depending on the performance that you need.

Door Awning Canopies

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 makes for good door 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 normally manual, not motorized, so they're slightly more cumbersome to use.

Canopies are ideal for door awnings that need:

Lateral Arm Door Awning

Lateral arm awnings are the traditional angled or flat, “smooth” awnings that extend using two or more support arms. This style of awning is a reliable jack-of-all-trades – it's adequate for light (not heavy) rain protection, it's very effective for interior UV and shade, and it's excellent at exterior shading. Its larger footprint makes a lateral arm style awkward for door awnings in tight spaces, but that size and simple lines are its strengths of outdoor sun and light rain protection with enough pitch placed on the arms.

Lateral arm styles are ideal for a door awning that needs:

Benefits for Homeowners

A door awning is an excellent addition to any home. They come in many shapes and sizes, so you're sure to find the perfect fit for your exterior. A door awning is an effective way to shade your doorway and entryway from sunlight, which can help lower your air conditioning bill as well as create privacy for your front entrance. Awnings also help keep the rain off your doorstep or porch area. A door awning will make your house look more attractive because they have a sleek modern design that will catch your neighbor's eye.

Benefits for Business

A door awning is an easy way to make your business stand out, and they also provide shade and protection from the elements. The biggest advantage is that they can easily be opened and closed depending on the weather, giving you more control over how much exposure your customers have to the outside world.

Door awnings are perfect for businesses located near busy streets or sidewalks because it provides them with some relief from the traffic noise and pollution. Not only do they protect against the elements, but they also help reduce glare on storefronts, so customers don't have any trouble seeing the products being displayed inside of stores or restaurants. Door awnings will help brand a company's image by having a logo, company name, and phone number on the main fabric or valance.
