Exceptional Installers of Metal Awnings in Slidell, LA
We have installed and design many types of awnings over the year at home and businesses. Awnings can be used for windows, doorways, along a walk way or with the use of pillars to create a covered area.
An awning or overhang is a secondary covering attached to the exterior wall of a building. The material most used is composed of canvas woven of acrylic, cotton or polyester yarn, or vinyl laminated to polyester fabric that is stretched tightly over a light structure of aluminum, iron or steel, possibly wood.
There are some build with a transparent material which are used to cover solar thermal panels in the summer, since they must allow as much light as possible in the winter.
Awnings are also often constructed of aluminum understructure with aluminum sheeting. These aluminum awnings are often used when a fabric awning is not a practical application where snow load as well as wind loads may be a factor.
