When you take a walk down a crowded city street you are bound to see something that is becoming the new big trend in small business. An aluminum awning above a storefront adds not only charm and character to a small business, it also is great advertising.

Years ago it seemed that awnings were primarily for homes. Your grandparents might have lived in a small house with an aluminum awning stretching along the front above the big picture window. One of the most popular color combinations back in the day was a red house with a big green aluminum awning in the front.

Nowadays most single family homes don’t have an awning. This is mainly because the design of most modern homes just does not support this accessory. If you live in an apartment complex there’s still a fairly good chance that at least one aluminum awning can be found on the front of the building.

I think there’s long been a misconception that builders were utilizing them strictly for aesthetic purposes. Although an aluminum awning certainly does add an extra pop to what might be an otherwise drab exterior, they do serve another purpose as well.

Weather can be so damaging to the outside surfaces of any building. Rain can cause wood to rot and crack, sun can cause paint to fade and wind can whip dirt around causing windows to become dusty and dirty. With an aluminum awning in place, the effects of the weather aren’t nearly as extreme.

If you want the benefit of having some protection from the elements, yet you’re not sold on the idea of having an awning on your building or home, there’s a solution that will work well for you. There are companies that have designed an aluminum awning that is retractable. The awning can be pulled back at your whim with a simple crank of a handle or the push of a button.

This type is obviously going to cost a bit more, but it’s a good compromise for someone who wants the look without having to completely commit to it. Not all vendors who sell awnings will offer this specialized type so you may have to search a bit to find one.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve got a quaint little home in the country or a bustling business in the city, an awning might help spruce up the exterior of your place while giving you a reprieve from Mother Nature at the same time.
