About Patio Awnings
Patio awnings offer several benefits to a home. Having a patio awning makes your patio or deck feel like an outdoor room. You can enjoy the view and spending time outdoors in the fresh air, while staying protected from the direct sun and rain. Many homeowners find they use the patio or deck more often after installing a deck awning or patio cover.
A patio awning or deck awning brings the décor of your home outside. The addition of patio awnings adds aesthetic value to your patio. At Awntech, we offer several options to fit the décor of your home and your personal preferences. Patio covers are available in several shapes, colors and fabrics. Browse our online catalog to see the various patio cover styles that are available.
Start by selecting the location where the awning will be installed. You will need to measure the space to ensure you order the correct size for your patio awning. Retractable Patio Awnings and deck awnings allow you to open the awning when in use and retract it when you are finished using the patio. These awnings are available with a manual crank to operate the awning or a motorized version for easy operation.
Installation of your patio cover is an easy job for a weekend day. The patio awnings come with installation directions and the tools and materials needed for the job are listed on the product description page for each awning, for your convenience. Most styles take just a few hours to install. For larger sizes in patio awnings and deck awnings, you may need a friend or two to help finish the installation.
