Stay Cool and Stylish with our Awnings 

Experience shade like never before with our awnings designed to redefine outdoor comfort. Protect yourself and your property from the sun’s harsh rays with these versatile patio covering which allow you to enjoy the perfect blend of form and function.

What are Awnings? 

Awnings resemble a roof-like covering, made from sturdy fabrics and are attached to the exterior wall of a building. They are designed to provide shade and protection from the sun, rain, or other weather elements. Awnings can be stationary or retractable and available in various shapes, sizes, and styles. Awnings primarily serve as extensions to outdoor living spaces, creating comfortable areas for relaxation, and offering protection for windows and doors from harsh weather conditions. 

Though many may think awnings are typically used for residential properties, they are also of great value to commercial, and industrial properties. They can be found over windows, doors, patios, decks, storefronts and more! In addition to their functional benefits, aluminum awnings enhance the aesthetic appeal of a building or outdoor space, especially as they can be customized for any outdoor space.

Josh was here and actually just left. Initially, I was apprehensive about committing to this project. He explained everything, made recommendations, no pressure whatsoever, very professional and very friendly. I have no doubt I made the right decision to proceed with this company. Usually I worry and second guess my choices. This time I have no doubts and cannot wait till it is completed. I am totally confident I made the right choice. When all is done, I will update you. Cheers!

My husband Jason and I couldn't be happier with our automatic outdoor sun shades. We would highly recommend Shutters and Shade to anyone that needs relief from the sun inside or outside their home. The ease and functionality of the shades are so amazing. We would not think twice about installing them again on our next project. We've built 2 homes in the past 4 years and Wes was one of the best people we have had the opportunity to work with. Thank you Wes for making this part of the home building experience a great one!
