The Many Benefits of Commercial Awnings

Adding an awning to your business is fairly inexpensive when you consider all of the benefits it will provide. Our customers love their custom commercial awnings because they:

  • Add curb appeal: A clean commercial awning can increase the curb appeal of your business, which can draw in more customers. A great awning can even attract people off the street who see a business that looks unique and inviting.
  • Help customers find your business: An obvious function of a commercial awning is to help provide the identification for your business so customers can find you easily.
  • Offer a unique way to brand your business: Similar to what’s stated above, adding your company name or logo to your awning not only helps customers locate your business, it also provides a simple, yet powerful way of raising awareness of your brand. The wide variety of styles, colors, and graphics options allow you to set your business apart from the crowd, which is important in today’s competitive marketplace.
  • Reduce energy costs: Studies show that properly designed awnings can reduce solar heat gain by 65-77 percent – that’s a significant number no matter who you are!
  • Provide protection for interiors: The shade from your commercial awning will protect your business’ interior from the sun’s rays, which can fade carpets, floors, merchandise, and more.
  • Increased outdoor space: Adding a commercial awning can transform the space outside your business. If you have a restaurant or cafe, you can add an awning to provide shade for outdoor seating, or create a comfortable place for customers who are waiting in line. If you own a retail store, you can set up clearance items or racks of clothing outside underneath the awning to draw in customers. The opportunities for your added outdoor space are endless.
