Custom Awnings and Awning Styles

Posted on Monday, June 23rd, 2014 at 6:02 pm.

Carroll Awning Company knows that the best way to personalize your home or business is by installing our custom awnings. Awnings add more than just shade and value to a building, they add an accent piece that turns people’s heads and make your property something special. So when considering how to best accentuate your home, take a look at this list of design styles to determine which will work best for you.

Shed Awning

One of the most common awning styles, this awning is not just, as the name would suggest, restricted for use above sheds. It features a steep slope that ends at a smaller section perpendicular to the ground. It is very functional and ideal for shading areas of patios or porches.

Bullnose Awning

More popular for commercial uses, bullnose awnings are semi-polygonal in shape, so they end up closely resembling half of an umbrella. Much more decorative in nature, a bullnose awning can add special flair to your storefront.

Quarter Round Awning

A quarter round awning has a curved surface so that from a side view, it looks like half of a semicircle. Because of the curved shape, quarter round awnings are excellent at repelling rainwater.

Concave Awning

A concave awning looks a lot like a shed awning, except in its case, the main panel is sloped inwards. That slight curve makes concave awnings look a little more unique than their counterparts, and so it could be just the touch you need to elevate your home’s appearance.

Arch Canopy Awning

An arch canopy awning, from the front view, most closely resembles a semi circle. With the wide front panel facing outward, an arch canopy awning is perfect for business’s who want their name, logo, or street address displayed for all to see.

“A” Frame Awning

Similar to the arch canopy, except an “A” frame awning’s peak meets at a point instead of an arch. It still boasts a front panel for printed text, however, and lends a distinctly professional look to any doorway.
