Traditional Style

The traditional style frame is our most popular is both commercial and residential. This style can be used over smaller areas like windows and entryways, but can also provide protection over large areas like porches, patios and decks.


The roll front style awning is similar to a traditional style with the flat side panels, but is characterized by a curved front panel, constructed from a series of parallel bows in the shape of a convex curve. It produces a radius shape with flat ends. It is also conducive to turning corners, making it ideal to shade storefront windows as well as the sidewalk.


The swayback design is characterized by the inward curvature of the front panel. The side panels can be covered with fabric for a completely shaded enclosure, or left open, leaving the front panel supported by decorative frame.

Walkway Cover

Whether used as an entry feature or outdoor shelter, walkway covers openly impact the visual appearance of any project with remarkable style. Our systems are made to order with 100% extruded aluminum components, combining lasting beauty and low maintenance.


A dome-shaped awning is typically found over small entryways and windows and can be used in archways.  Whether you want to update an older building or home with architectural accents or harmonize new awnings with your existing architecture, domes can be an excellent choice for your home or business. The quarter-sphere shape provides similar protection from the sun and rain from all angles.


The straight lines and angles of the gable style canopy complement modern designs. The front face lends itself naturally to the placement of graphics for strong branding.

Patio Cover

Patio covers can cover large areas and are often used to cover patios/decks and outdoor seating at restaurants. If you live in a humid area, experience a lot of rain, or live near the ocean, an aluminum patio cover is a smart choice for your outdoor cover needs. Wood patio covers are a great option, but they require maintenance that an aluminum cover does not—saving you time and money. Aluminum patio awnings are incredibly easy to maintain, and can be cleaned with water and soap to look like new. Extreme hot, cold, or wet weather will not affect their appearance, they won’t rust, crack, or peel, and they’re not susceptible to termites and other pest infestations.

Wells Fargo

Elongated Dome

Similar to the dome-shaped frame, this style works best for long windows or entryways that require a dome awning. The elongated dome can be used on a flat surface or can curve to cover a corner entry or windows.

California Style

California style canopies are adjustable to the angle of the sun, but since they don’t have sides, they may be less effective at blocking sunlight. Consider awnings with sides for areas of your business that get more sun exposure.

Retractable Awning

Most typically used over patios and decks, the retractable awning can be extended and retracted to provide shelter when necessary and allow sunlight when desired. It includes a manual cranking system or two variations of electric control systems; one functions at the push of a switch or button and the other can be controlled by sun, wind and rain sensors to adjust when you’re not home.
