Types of awnings
Awnings are either stationary or retractable. Retractable awnings can be opened or closed by electrically or manually at the owner’s convenience, and are good choices for a deck awning or patio awning. Stationary awnings, also known as fixed awnings, are used as door awnings and window awnings.
Awnings in Cleveland are made from one or a combination of fabric or metal. Metal awnings, typically aluminum, are durable and require minimal maintenance. Fabric (e.g., vinyl, acrylic, canvas) is more customizable but may not last as long. Stationary awnings are commonly metal, while retractable awnings are usually made from fabric.
Awning installation in Cleveland
Before you purchase an awning in Cleveland, ask about awning installation. Some awnings come with directions for self-installation. Some awning companies in Cleveland include professional installation with purchase. Others will provide installation for an extra fee.
Check with the City of Cleveland (or other government entity) whether a permit is necessary to install an awning. If you do choose to get professional installation, be sure the installer has the necessary licensing or registration and insurance coverage.
