Types of Awnings


Shed, or traditional, awnings are one of the most popular choices for homeowners. The simple, traditional design has a sloped surface that ‘sheds’ water away from doors and windows, protecting them from rain and snow. They also provide a cooling and energy saving shade without visual obstruction. Their versatile design works well on many different architectural styles, creating a handsome addition to your home.


Convex awnings are a popular choice for a wide variety of residential architectural styles. A convex awning complements curved features around windows or doors and can provide a contrast in shapes against square or angled features. The radius of a convex awning can be tailored for small spaces such as doorways, or large span of windows, providing shade from the sun and protection from the elements without covering too much of your door or windows.


Dome awnings have a classic, sculpted shape, adding elegance to any door or window. The beauty of the dome awning lies in its curvature in both vertical and horizontal planes, resulting in a soft, engaging appearance. It’s the perfect complement to either curved or straight architectural features. A dome awning is an attractive addition to your home, providing protection from the elements for windows and doorways.


Barrel style awnings feature a unique, rounded design that can complement homes with curved features as well as square or angled lines. The rounded shape diverts rain and snow to the side of a walkway. For longer walkways, a canopy with a longer projection will provide extra protection from the elements. This style can also be designed with removable side panels for additional protection during rainy, cold or snowy times of the year.


An elongated dome awning showcases the sculpted design and elegance of a dome awning with the curved element of a convex awning. It can be used to cover a wide horizontal area, such as a series of several windows, a sliding door, French doors or a doorway with side windows. The wide span offers protection from sunlight and the elements for wider spaces and can be a stylish addition to many residential architectural styles.


Similar in style to a traditional shed awning, a concave awning offers protection from the sun, rain and snow, while adding a delicate touch to any window or door. The inward curve beautifully complements the architecture of almost any residence to create a distinct and elegant presence that stands out in any surrounding.

A-Frame / Gable

A-Frame, or gable awnings, unique shape complements a peaked structure or triangular façade, however, works nicely with any residential architectural design. The face of an A-Frame offers a large surface for graphic use to further highlight your home, apartment complex or senior home facility. This style of awning sheds rain and snow off the sides, keeping your residential entrance clear. It can also be designed with removable side panels or doorway, providing homeowners and residents with additional protection.


Summer style awnings are designed to be used seasonally, providing cooling shade in the warm summer months and allow you to take advantage of the warming sunlight in the colder winter months. A popular choice for weekend and summer homes, summer awnings can be pulled up or retracted when more light is desired on cloudy days and lowered when the sun is shining, and you wish to block damaging UV rays. In addition to fabricating and installing, we also provide a service to take down and store your summer awnings for the winter and then rehang them in the spring.


Casement awnings, or box style awnings, are designed with a longer projection to allow for the opening of casement windows, windows with panes that are hinged along the side and open outward. A casement window awning provides all the sun and weather protection of other awning styles.


Whether you are looking for weather protection over a doorway, shade protection for windows, or awnings that are more aesthetically pleasing, BH Awning can help you achieve your goal. All our awning projects are custom designed to fit your needs. We take measurements and help you choose a design, color and pattern for your custom awnings.


A motorized awning allows you to extend or retract your awning from inside or outside your home with the push of a button. Several awning styles, including retractable patio awnings, roll down curtains and summer style awnings can be motorized for ease of operation.


Metal, or aluminum, awnings serve all the same functions of traditional fabric awnings and are long lasting. A flat or curved aluminum canopy over a door or window can give a contemporary look by utilizing features such as metal roofing and 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 to complement the style of your home.


Bright sun can quickly make an outdoor patio or deck uncomfortable and even damage or fade your home’s interior. Retractable awnings block damaging UV rays and keeps outdoor spaces shady and comfortable. We offer a variety of colorful fabrics to add style and value to your home. Installing a motorized retractable awning helps to cover an outdoor area quickly with the push of a button. Just as easily, your awning can retract in the case of wind or rain or when you prefer extra light and a more open feel to a deck or patio.
