Selecting the Type of Awning Installation, Composition and Style Best Suited to Your Exterior Home Areas

A wide variety of awning styles composed of different materials is available to choose from for home property installations, including the following selections:

  • Retractable Awnings – These popular open, jointed-arm, retractable awnings are convenient and versatile since their inclination angle is adjustable, enabling them to be adapted to suit different weather conditions and homeowner preferences or needs. The main drawback of this type of terrace, deck or patio awning installation is its fabric composition, which is susceptible to damage during high winds and storms. These terrace or deck cover awnings should be mounted beneath a balcony or protruding area of roofing and retracted during extreme weather for long-term use.
  • Cassette and Vertical Awnings – Cassette awnings are actually a top-quality design of jointed-arm awnings in popular use today for shading home exterior areas of all styles. They are formed by an aluminum cassette that resists corrosion while protecting the patio awning fabric, hardware and any electrical components from moisture, stormy weather and dirt accumulation. Vertical deck cover awnings are most often used to create facade shading and for decorative effects.

Attractive Alternatives to a Standard Awning Installation for Covering Exterior Home Areas

Modern attractive and practical alternatives to standard retractable awning systems designs for effective covering of exterior home areas today include the following:

  • Glass Roofs – A clear glass roof can be an ideal patio, deck, terrace or balcony cover for homeowners who want a stable, protective roof system that will allow them to enjoy using garden furniture and grills during all seasons of the year. These stunning roofing systems have a sturdy aluminum structure to support the strong glazed glass roof with options like a vertical front shading extension, side glazing and privacy screening as needed.
  • Free-Standing Pavilions – For homeowners who cannot install an awning or glass roof by mounting it on a façade, a patio pavilion designed with a modular aluminum or glass roof system and multiple expansion options can be the ideal solution. These pavilions are fashionable and offer excellent all-seasons weather protection.

Highly recommended! Cecil very effectively interpreted our vision and provided the post & beam samples that were needed in order to make our decision. We appreciate that the components were custom manufactured to fit our patio. Installation was expertly done by Peyton, Jon and Rahul, and was completed according to schedule, including cleanup. The finished product looks great and we’re now ready for summer. Thank you Mr. Cover All!

The free hanging custom unit installed 3 levels up looks beautiful, like it belongs, and not an add on to a 35 year old building. The 3 post and beam patio covers are stunning. Installers Rocky & Steve were personable, punctual, fast, clean and most all respectful to our members & their units. Thanks Brandon & Cecil for all your time helping us find exactly what would work for our situation and on budget as well.Thank you Cecil & Brandon.

We are extremely pleased with our new awning from Mr. Cover All. The process from initial consultation to installation has been painless, and the final result is a strong, sturdy, and attractive replacement awning. I am particularly grateful to Rahul who showed me how to change the pitch of the awning which I didn’t know was an option. This information completely resolved our difficulty with where to attach it to the house. Rahul and Adam did a great install, were friendly and comfortable and covid-respectful. Thanks, guys.
