Aluminum metal awnings serve all of the same functions of traditional fabric awnings and more. Aluminum door and window awnings have been a very popular choice for many years and last a very long time. A flat or curved aluminum canopy over a door or window can give a contemporary look to architecture that utilizes more contemporary features such as metal roofing or siding. Aluminum canopies can also be used to provide stylish, yet sturdy sun and weather protection for patios, decks, carports and other outdoor spaces. In addition, many traditional residential awning styles can be designed using aluminum standing seam panels instead of canvas fabric to create and unique looking complement to the style of your home.
