Awnings have a wide range of benefits for both business and residential applications. 

Commercial awnings provide you with the opportunity to brand your business, a place to displace graphics, outdoor seating for your customers, as well as energy savings by sheltering windows and entrances from the sun's rays. Studies show that properly designed awnings can reduce solar heat gain by 65% to 77%, that's a significant number no matter who you are! The wide variety of styles, colors, and graphic options allows you to set your business apart from the crowd which is important in today's competitive marketplace.   

Residential awnings beautify your home while increasing your outdoor living space and protecting your home's interior from the sun's damaging rays. A study of 50 cities showed that residential awnings can reduce your energy cost's by up to 50%, especially if you have an older home. The savings specific to the Minneapolis area can be found here in the study done by PAMA. Or you can use the Home Energy Saver tool to see how much you can save in your home!
