Awnings come in a wide range of finishes and styles and are a great asset to any sunny patio. Modern awnings can now include lighting and even heating so you can enjoy the outside in the evening and when the weather is not at its best, perfect for a summers evening in the comfort of your own garden. With the unreliability of our climate here in the UK, an awning increases the potential time available for you to unwind and enjoy the fresh air. Chapel Doors awnings can keep you cool on the hottest days, but also enable you to enjoy using your patio when the weather is less than perfect, so that it becomes a proper extension to your home. Awnings also help protect carpets and soft furnishings from fading, without having to draw the curtains and lose the outdoor view, and will help to protect precious plants from drying out in really hot weather.

Your guide to Awnings
Patio awning installed outside Norfolk property.

Patio Awnings

When most people think of an awning, they have a wall mounted patio design in mind. These are fixed to a wall and extend outwards over a seating or smoking area.

These can include options for lighting, heating, and automated operation.

A canopy is a projection that provides weather protection, identity or decoration and is supported by the building to which it is attached and at the outer end by not less than one stanchion. A canopy is usually comprised of a lightweight frame structure over which a cover is attached.

Freestanding Awnings

As their name suggests, these designs don’t require wall mounting. They are a freestanding structural framework which patio awning(s) are fixed onto. Freestanding awnings are popular in open spaces, and their extra sturdy construction means they can cover large spaces like restaurants, poolside areas and lawns.

The patio awnings are purchased separately, giving flexibility over your choice of model. When providing a quotation we will provide a total cost for all products.
