Awnings and canopies

Awnings and canopies allow homeowners to enjoy the wonders of their garden during the height of the summer, by providing rest bite from the sun with shaded areas.

You can utilise this space with a garden table and chairs to give yourself a fantastic area to relax and the awning or canopy can be used as and when it’s needed.

Types of awnings and canopies

There are two main types of awning that you’ll find:

  • Retractable sun awnings

  • Simplistic designs

The retractable awning does exactly what it says on the tin. It’s able to retract from view when not in use and opens out when you want to create a shaded area. This is all your choice and controls allow you to adjust how little or far the awning opens out.

Of course, the most popular application of an awning is for shade purposes in the garden or patio area. But with an awning you can suit any purpose and they can be installed anywhere with special brackets.

There has been an increase in popularity for awnings recently because of the awareness of the rise in skin cancer. Even the simplistic design allows homeowners to benefit from a shaded area where they can still enjoy the beauty of their garden.

Average Awnings and canopies cost

The cost of your awning or canopy mainly depends on its size and location.

The typical cost of an awning or canopy project is about £1,000, but yours could end up being more or less.

Awnings and canopies FAQs

What size awning do I need?

If you’re considering getting an awning for the outside of your home or business, it’s vital to make sure it’s the correct size. This will help you get the right amount of shelter or shade you need, and ensure it looks great.

To get the best results, get your awning from a company who comes out to your property to measure. They’ll be experienced at doing this accurately, and will be able to add clearance distances where required. They might also be able to suggest the best designs to suit your property and needs.

What is a canopy?

A canopy is similar to an awning, but is typically bigger and freestanding. This makes them more versatile than awnings, as you can move them around to suit your needs. However, they’re not always as structurally robust as most awnings.

How awnings work

A retractable awning can be a great addition to the outside of your home or business. They fold or roll neatly into a cassette, so they don’t take up space when you don’t need them. Some have articulated arms, while others have telescopic arms.

When you get an awning, you can choose between a manual and an automatic one. Manual ones have a handle or crank that you wind to fold it in and out, while automatic ones have a motor.

How to keep water from pooling on a canopy

If you have an older canopy or have experienced a significant amount of rain recently, you might notice water pooling on your canopy. This is probably because there is some slack in your canopy, which allows water to collect instead of draining it off. See if there are places on your canopy frame where you can tighten it to keep it taught, and this should solve the problem.

What is an awning?

An awning usually attaches to an exterior wall of your home, business or outbuilding, or to the outside of a boat, campervan or caravan. It acts as an extra piece of roof or covering to shelter people from sun, rain or wind when they’re outside.

Lots of awnings are retractable, with either a manual or automatic folding mechanism. You also get static awnings that are up permanently. You often find awnings fixed over the top of doors or windows.
