Are Awnings and Canopies the Same Thing?

Many people use these terms interchangeably, but there actually is a difference in these shade structures.

The difference between an awning and a canopy is in the support structure.

Awnings are mounted on a frame attached to the exterior of a building – usually above a window or door or patio. 

Canopies are supported by posts or hanger rods and can be freestanding or extend from a building.

A canopy has supports on one or more sides. It can attach to your home’s exterior or stand independently on permanent posts.

6 Reasons to Consider an Awning for Your Home

1) Conserve Energy, Save Money

Awnings and canopies can reduce heat gain by 55 to 66 percent on southern facing windows and 72 to 77 percent when there is a western exposure. By reducing your air conditioning costs, these energy-saving enhancements quickly pay for themselves.

2) Shade and Style

Whether you’re adding details to make a home feel more traditional or you want a contemporary modern look, we can design the right awning or canopy for your home. Enhance your home’s comfort and curb appeal with a custom made awning.

3) Increase Your Home’s Value

Exterior upgrades can significantly increase your home’s value. In fact, three of the four types of home improvement projects that most significantly increase a home’s value at the time of resale were exterior upgrades.

4) Expand Your Living Space
Create an outdoor living room or dining room with a canopy. A national study found that 60 percent of homeowners did not use outdoor space as much as they would like to, primarily because of lack of shelter from the elements. By adding a canopy structure to your home, you can enjoy more of your outdoor space in different types of weather.
5) Beauty, Functionality and Protection
