When Does an Awning Need I-Beam?

In many cases, aluminum or acrylic awnings require an I-Beam. An I-Beam is particularly needed if your awning will overhang your deck or patio, or you prefer not to have support posts. An I-Beam will also provide additional support for an awning with large projection.

I-Beam is a metal beam which has a profile shaped like an "I", providing structural re-enforcement.

To know for sure whether you will need I-Beam, it is best to ask your experienced awning expert for advice.

Canada Day Festivities in Your Own Backyard

Happy Canada Day! Are you set to enjoy the outdoor festivities? If you’re thinking of spending more time outdoors this summer in your yard, or perhaps having a ‘staycation’, and investing more in your own home surroundings, it may be time for a deck cover. Covering your deck or patio gives you an extended living space, shelters your home from the heat and extreme light, keeps your home cooler, and provides shelter from the rain so that you can stay outside in wet weather.

You may have thought an aluminum patio cover would not blend with your d├ęcor. There are several ways to make it fit in nicely with your home’s contours. For a more eclectic or antique look, black aluminum can be used in place of white. This makes an attractive addition to an outdoor living space.
