Permanent stationary fabric awnings offer year-round protection from the elements. The frame structures of permanent patio awnings are designed to a commercial standard which allows for year-round use. Permanent awnings can extend your living space, and they can also be used as carports. The softer look of fabric enables the awning to blend into the facade of your home, providing a richer look compared to an aluminum awning. Depending on the application, permanent awnings can assume a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Awning fabrics and frames are also available in a variety of colors and materials.
