Different Types Available


There are many different types of awnings to choose from. Here are some of the most popular types of awnings available:

Fabric awnings

Retractable awnings – these can be manually or remotely operated

Window and door awnings

Patio awnings

Choosing the right type of awning for your home will depend on your personal preferences, budget and available space. Retractable awnings are one of the most popular styles in the UK, as the awning is tucked away inside its cassette when not in use, ensuring that damage will not be caused by high winds or storms.

It is possible to find sensor-controlled awnings which automatically extend or retract depending on whether it is sunny or not, although these are more expensive than manual control retractable awnings. These types of awnings are popular for windows and doors where people are looking to keep the bright sunshine away from their furniture and prevent fading and sun damage.

What are Awnings made of?


Whilst fabric awnings are a popular choice, it is also possible to find awnings made from aluminium, which is ideal for a colder, wetter climate such as the UK. Aluminium is low maintenance, waterproof and durable. Fabric awnings vary in their durability and weather-proofing, depending on the type of fabric chosen. Canvas awnings are amongst the most popular in the UK, whilst mesh, acrylic and vinyl-coated polyester or cotton are other choices. An awnings specialist will be able to advise which is best for your home and would best complement your home’s existing architecture and style.

Why Choose an Awning?


An awning is a great option for those who enjoy entertaining outdoors in all weathers. Dining al fresco is possible year round with a retractable awning and some patio heaters and an awning is also ideal for garden parties throughout the year. Awnings are a great feature which will add value to your property – everyone likes to think that they will be able to enjoy drinks on the terrace year round, but without an awning, it’s just not possible in the British climate!
