How to choose an awning in Denver

Denver skyline

Buying an awning for your Denver home or apartment is a wonderful way to shield your patio, window or door from snow and the bright Colorado sun. Awnings come in different sizes, colors and materials that add comfort to both residential and commercial properties.

Whether you’re in LoDo and planning to add an awning over your downtown apartment’s hot tub or hoping to shield your kids' shoulders from the sun in a Stapleton or Hilltop backyard, adding an awning should increase your Denver home’s value and comfort.

Types of awnings

There are two main types of awnings available in Denver:

  • Retractable awnings allow for adjustable exposure but are usually more expensive and difficult to repair. Retractable awnings can be manually operated or motorized, allowing the amount of sun exposure to change throughout the day or based on Denver’s weather.
  • Stationary awnings are cheaper and simpler but require more maintenance.

Awnings in Denver also come in a number of different materials, the most popular of which are aluminum, canvas and polyester.

Aluminum awnings are more durable than canvas and relatively low maintenance. However, they are more likely to dent from hail and can rust from rain and snow, all common occurrences in Colorado.

Canvas awnings are better for frequent use because they are easy to clean and their colors remain bright over time. Unfortunately, they can become a basin for snow and rain if left up year-round in Denver.

Polyester awnings are best for large coverage areas and tend to remain sturdy and not sag. However, some homeowners in Denver don’t like their appearance.

Many awning companies offer warranties and a free initial quote, so factor those into your search for a retractable awning in Denver.

Awning installation in Denver

Installation costs fluctuate based on the awning’s type, size and features. If you’re handy, some retractable awning installations can even be done without hiring a professional.

Awning companies in Denver should be licensed and insured if they provide installations. Check reviews and the awning company’s previous work to make sure they’re legitimate.
