Benefits of Choosing an Aluminum Awning

The experts at Roberts Awnings are adept at crafting outdoor shade solutions from fabric as well as aluminum, and we’ll be happy to discuss your goals and provide you with our opinion as to which type of awning would be best for you. Generally, however, aluminum awnings make better choices when you want to:

  1. Protect your porch, patio, doors, and windows from the harshest weather, including heavy snow loads
  2. Possibly enclose your porch or patio someday because an aluminum canopy can sometimes serve as a roof
  3. Get the maximum longevity out of your awning investment because the high-quality metal awnings we install will outlast even weather-resistant fabric awnings

Aluminum awnings also make a great choice for homeowners who don’t want to fuss with ongoing maintenance and replacing their awning covers from time to time. And, as with any awning, aluminum shades block solar heat and glare, so they help keep your indoor areas more comfortable. This can help keep your cooling costs in check.

What Styles Are Available for Aluminum Awnings?

When you team up with Roberts Awnings, your customization options will include your awning style, and you’ll have a generous selection of styles to choose from. Here are only some of the most popular styles we can create:


This design offers a pleasing shape to enhance the roof peaks and other architectural details of your home or commercial building. It works well as a door entry canopy because it provides the extra clearance needed for opening doors. It’s also a great solution for those hard-to-fit roof lines where a traditional awning could not be used.


This awning style uses a traditional wedge shape to cover your patio, porch, or entry. It’s designed to endure the toughest winters or hottest summers, so awnings in this style make for the perfect low maintenance, year-round protection.


Marquee awnings offer all-weather protection over doorways, porches, patios, and decks. Marquees and insulated roofs can be freestanding or adapted for entranceways. These products can be used with very little pitch when mounting height is an issue.

Overhead Canopy

This is another good style choice for doorways, loading docks, walkways, storefronts, and many other places where you need shade and shelter. Usually, this type of aluminum awning is attached to the building by support rods, providing excellent stability and a modern, streamlined appearance.

Offering a variety of awning styles, shapes, and colors, Roberts Awnings is sure to meet your every need. Contact us today for more information about our aluminum awnings and other awning-related services. We proudly serve customers throughout the Richmond area.
