  • Whether the awning cover will be attached to the home or will it be a freestanding cover

Wood Deck Covers

Wood is the traditional material used because it is inexpensive and durable. They are the easiest to blend with the exterior of a home and the existing landscaping. Wooden awnings do require maintenance and care after installation. Wood needs be stained and sealed yearly along with applying termite resistant treatments to prevent it from drying out and to keep it looking new.

Metal Deck Covers

Metal covers are extremely versatile and hold up well in climates with varying types of weather. The metals used may consist of steel, copper or iron with a protective zinc coating. Metal covers come in many textures and styles that usually do not require any maintenance. These covers are very durable allowing the family to barbeque straight through a rainstorm without interrupting the family’s festivities. For folks who would still like that look of a wood covering with the attributes of metal can turn to Alumawood as a choice. This material looks like wood yet has the desired qualities of strength with less maintenance that aluminum offers.

Vinyl Awnings

An environmental option is to build an awning from recycled materials with the use of the new vinyl alternative. It is a highly durable material that won’t decay, rot, or warp. It is also easy to install and affordable. Homeowners can get these covers in simulated wood finishes without the hassle of the yearly maintenance involved in taking care of a wooden alternative.

No matter what material a homeowner does choose, the addition of a new stylish awning will become an integral part of the home’s social and entertaining space for many years to come
