Awnings come in all shapes, sizes and packaging and basic all-purpose ones can be bought off the shelf.
But all awnings are not made equal.
We are often contacted, usually by a homeowner, who has bought an off-the-shelf pre-manufactured awning only to discover that it doesn’t quite fit their requirements as they’d hoped.
That’s not to suggest that a pre-made awning won’t do the job.
The challenge is the ‘one-size-fits-all’ option is, ironically, better suited to a handyman that is adept at customising an installation snce the process of installing is not always as easy as it looks.
What is an awning?
An awning is described as ‘a canopy made of canvas to shelter people or things from rain or sun.’
A canopy is a covering (usually of cloth) that serves as a roof to shelter an area from the weather.
The actual difference between an awning and a canopy is mainly in the application.
Awnings are usually mounted above an outside window or patio while canopies are mostly freestanding, used to provide shade over a seating area separated from the building or home.
Awnings are for fixed installations; canopies are for more temporary solutions.
