Protect Doors, Windows and Patios With Awnings

By UJJBARAN October 18, 2021

Awnings, whether window awnings, patio awnings or door awnings, offer style and function. They can help lower household energy costs by blocking the sun's heat, and they can protect doors, windows and outdoor furniture from sun, snow or rain damage. You can also use a carport canopy, like a metal carport, to protect vehicles in case your home doesn’t have a garage.

Retractable vs. Fixed

A retractable awning, also known as a retractable canopy, can be pulled out or tucked in whenever you choose. They’re ideal for large areas like decks or patios. A retractable patio awning or retractable sunshade offers the luxury of providing shade or full sun depending on your personal preference. If you don’t have a built-in patio roof, an awning or deck cover is the perfect solution. Fixed awnings, unlike retractable options, are more permanent and better suited for areas like windows or entryways.

Awnings by Material

Acrylic fabric awnings are resistant to fading, moisture, mildew and dirt. Plus they’re available in a wide range of colors and patterns. Fixed metal awnings are designed to withstand heavy rain and snow loads. Fixed models are budget-friendly and can be easily installed using basic do-it-yourself skills. If you need a cover that can be pulled in for storms or high wind and extended in nice weather, choose from a manual or mechanical retractable awning like a fabric awning. Being able to choose the option of a motor on the right or left side gives you more flexibility on where you can install the awning.

Awnings by Location

Specialized low-eave models are designed for use under a roof overhang or gutter. They're available as both window and door awnings. You adjust the slope and pitch as you install them, so they fit snugly into limited space.

No matter what type of awnings you’re looking for, Lowe’s has the right options for your home. We’ve got top brands like Awntech, Americana Building Products, SunSetter awnings and SunSetter retractable awnings. Plus get all the awning accessories you need to complete your project, like covers and hardware.
