All you need to know regarding Awnings

Posted on December 20, 2015 at 3:02 pm

Awnings are roof-like structures, made of canvas or other material attached to the exterior wall, which serves as shelter. They are also known as overhangs. They may be placed on a building above doors, windows or sidewalks.


Broad overhangs may be used in restaurants for outdoor reception, dining or parties. In commercial buildings, they may be painted with information to act as billboards as well as provide shelter from rain, snow and strong winds. For hotel entrances, columns may be used to extent overhangs further from the building.

Door canopies – Why bother?

Posted on December 6, 2015 at 11:51 pm

If you’ve seen a door canopy, you may think what’s the point? They don’t offer a great deal of wind protection and they can look a little out of place. However, if you don’t want a large porch built above your entrance door, it’s a fine option.

There are plenty of different designs, and they will keep the rain off your head. You’ll often see them added to shops, town houses and terrace buildings, and it can give you chance to take your muddy boots off outside without having to step directly into the house on a wet and windy day. A little protection goes a long way, and a door canopy may not be the most important fixture on a house, but it can keep the rain off your back. They’re relatively cheap too, and very easy to install.

An awning simply refers to a structure which resembles a roof and is often made of canvas or plastic in some cases. It serves as a shelter and is commonly seen installed over store fronts, doors or decks and over windows. These structures are usually supported by metallic frames to help protect them from bad weather. In addition to the above, it is equally important to understand the fact that these structures are characteristic of designs which qualifies them for both commercial and domestic use.

Oh how we love Autumn!

Posted on October 27, 2015 at 2:00 pm

Autumn has finally arrived, and we couldn’t be happier. Okay so it means the start of the cold weather and more time indoors, but the views are spectacular. Everywhere you look there are trees in the colours of red, gold, yellow, green and even purple! There’s a bit of a chill in the air but it’s not too bad, and you’ll only need a jacket at the moment.

It’s time to bring out those walking boots and wrap up warm, because Autumn is the shortest of the four seasons, so make the most of it while you can. We are! We don’t feel enough Brits appreciate Autumn, but you probably will when the winter weather arrives! With squirrels stashing nuts, conkers falling from trees, it’s a great time to go outdoors. As you can see we love autumn, and we’d love to know your thoughts on this spectacular season, so get in touch.
