Consider these factors before installing a restaurant awning with Carroll Architectural Shade.

Dining outside on a cool patio is an always-appealing feature of restaurants and cafes. If you are ready to design and install a restaurant awning with Carroll Architectural Shade, we recommend considering the following factors first. Before installing your awning, you want to ensure you have chosen the best size, material, and design that suits your building and budget. Installing a restaurant awning will always be a smooth process when you discuss these factors with your Carroll Architectural Shade designers.

Awning Size

One of the most important factors to consider for your awning is its size. You don’t want an awning that is too small to cover all of your patio or outdoor dining area, but you don’t want an awning that is too big for your building. Our experienced Carroll Architectural Shade designers can help you determine the ideal size that suits your building design and provides the coverage you need. 

Your Awning’s Longevity

No one wants to spend money on a new awning only to have it fail much sooner than expected. When you design new awnings with Carroll Architectural Shade, we construct your new products with durable awning frames and fabrics. We also build aluminum awnings that provide maximum durability year-round. 

Awning Design

You want to make sure that your new awning design blends well with your existing restaurant design. Your awning designers can help you find the best colors that complement your building’s color scheme and select the colors and prints that will help your logo or business name stand out. 

Is Maintenance Manageable? 

You will want to make sure that your new awning is easy to clean and maintain. When owning a busy restaurant, you don’t want to have to spend much time keeping your awnings presentable. Your new Carroll awning will be built with durable materials that are often easy to clean with simple soap and water.

Consider Your Budget

Of course, you will also want to consider how your new restaurant awning fits your budget. When you meet with the design team at Carroll Architectural Shade, we can advise you on the best materials and designs to save you costs. At the same time, when you buy a custom awning from our team rather than a premade style, you are investing in an awning that is suited exactly to your building. The value of an original awning is something you can’t always put a price on.
