An awning is an architectural projection that provides weather protection, identity or decoration and are typically supported by the building on which it is attached. An awning is comprised of a lightweight, rigid skeletal structure over which a fabric cover is fastened to shelter windows, doors, decks, and walkways.

Awnings are used by various types of businesses. You will see large chain stores, banks, and other franchise companies who incorporate commercial awnings as part of their branding in addition to local businesses. Sometimes Signature customers will choose an awning so that their store blends in with the surrounding buildings. In certain areas of the country awnings provide a more vintage look to a store front.

Awnings are made with two basic materials, vinyl or canvas. Typically vinyl awnings are chosen for lighted awnings, they are easier to clean and when lit allow more of the light to shine through. Some of our customers choose cloth for a more traditional look for their awning project. Awnings can last for 5-10 years, depending on how they are maintained and can be "re-skinned", or recovered, to extend their lifespan even further.

Awnings come in many shapes and sizes, have one of our sign professionals come out to your location and provide you with input on what style of awning will look best for your needs.
