Awnings and Patio Blinds

An awning is a roof-like cover, stretched on a frame, extending over or in front of a place like a shelter.

Patio blinds are all-weather blinds that can be used on verandahs, patios, pergolas, gazebos and any other roofed outdoor area. The structure of the blinds consists of a border of solid material into which a clear vinyl window is inserted.

Custom made awnings can be installed over doors, windows, patios, or decks to give your home or business, a more complete or professional appearance. They increase energy efficiency by reducing sunlight and glare. When used over a patio or deck, an awning will protect your outdoor furniture and flooring from fading. Outdoor awnings will also increase the use of any exterior space by shielding you from sun and light rain.

Types of Awnings

  • Retractable Awnings

Folding arm awnings or retractable outdoor awnings are attached to an exterior wall and a sheet of canvas or other material is then stretched to cover a specific area. Retractable Awnings are attractive additions designed to increase usable outdoor living space.  They also add beauty and value to the property.  Retractable awnings allow you to control the level of sun in your outdoor area.  In addition, it is extremely user-friendly and can open at any angle.


  • Stationary/Fixed Awnings:

Stationary awnings or fixed frame awnings can be customized to your home’s exterior.  Fixed awnings give homeowners great creativity in style, size and shape. No matter what the product, you can be sure it will add greater functionality and beauty to your home. Stationary outdoor awnings require less maintenance than retractable awnings because there are no moving parts.  Stationary awnings are perfect for home entryways and windows, balconies and carports.
