What Are Awnings?

Awnings are secondary coverings typically made of fabric, metal, or other durable materials that are attached to the exterior wall of a building. They extend outward and downward to provide shade, shelter, and protection from the elements for windows, doors, patios, or outdoor spaces. Awnings are often customized with the business name, logo, or other branding elements, and they are positioned on the front of the awning where they can be easily seen by pedestrians or passing traffic.

What Are The Benefits of Awnings?

Sun Protection

Awning signs provide excellent protection from the sun's harmful UV rays. This not only keeps you and your family safe but also prevents your outdoor furniture and flooring from fading due to sun exposure.

Energy Efficiency

By shading your windows and outdoor areas, awnings help reduce heat gain inside your home or business. This leads to lower cooling costs during hot months of Vancouver, making them an environmentally friendly choice.

Extended Living Space

With a fixed or retractable awning, you can create an outdoor oasis that can be enjoyed even during rainy days. This extra space is perfect for hosting gatherings, dining, or simply relaxing in the fresh air.

Aesthetic Appeal

Awning Signs come in a wide range of colors, materials, and styles. They can be customized to match your property's design and enhance its overall appearance.


Awnings are designed to withstand various weather conditions, including wind, rain, and snow. They are built to last, providing long-term value for your investment.

How Are Awnings Made?

Awnings are typically made through a multi-step process involving:

  1. Frame Construction: The frame, often made of durable materials like aluminum or steel, is crafted according to the desired dimensions and design of the awning.

  2. Fabrication of Cover: High-quality fabrics such as acrylic or polyester are measured, cut, and sewn to create the cover. Edges are hemmed, and seams are reinforced for durability.

  3. Attachment of Cover: The fabric cover is securely attached to the frame using stitching, stapling, or track systems, ensuring proper fit and tension.

  4. Finishing Touches: Depending on the design, additional features like valances or trims may be added to enhance the awning's appearance.
