    How to choose an awning in Detroit

    skyline

    Awnings continue to be popular in the metro Detroit area, from the metal awnings that hang over flower beds throughout Detroit, Warren, Roseville and Saint Clair Shores, to the retractable fabric awnings in backyards across Macomb and Oakland.

    Awnings in Detroit keep rain and snow away from doorsteps and window sills; reduce energy costs by blocking the hot summer sun and chilly winter winds from your home; and protect you and your belongings from damaging UV rays. These benefits mean that awnings in Detroit can increase the value of your home and significantly improve your outdoor spaces.

    Types of awnings

    There are two main types of awnings available in Detroit — retractable awnings and stationary awnings. However, within these two types, there are a variety of styles, shapes, colors, materials and features. The right choice for you depends on your awning’s intended purpose.

    If you’re buying your awning for recreational enjoyment, a retractable awning makes more sense. However, a stationary model works better to save on cooling costs, enhance privacy and reduce UV rays.

    Stationary awnings

    Pros Cons
    Long-lasting and sturdy Require more maintenance
    Ideal for windows and small spaces Orientation not easily changed
    Provide 24/7 weather protection Need extensive support when covering a large area

    Retractable awnings

    Pros Cons
    Require less maintenance Repairs are expensive
    Easily stored in inclement weather Require a higher initial investment
    Ideal for backyard recreation Easily damaged by snow, rain and wind

    Retractable awnings are either manual or motorized. That means opening and closing your retractable awning is as simple as turning a crank or pressing a button. Modern awnings even come with features like built-in speakers, wind sensors, remote control, smartphone connectivity, heaters and timers.

    After choosing a type of awning, it’s time to choose a material. Metal awnings are more durable, but they can be loud during storms and some people don’t like the way they look. Most fabric awnings are made from cotton or polyester and coated in vinyl, laminate or acrylic.

    • Polyester awnings are breathable, transmit light while blocking UV rays, wipe clean and withstand poor weather conditions well.
    • Cotton awnings are strong, durable, waterproof and machine-washable.

    Stationary metal awnings in Detroit usually cost between $100 and $600. Fabric awnings run a little higher, ranging from $150 to $650 for pre-made and up to $12,000 for custom awnings.

    Manual retractable awnings in Detroit start around $250 and go up to about $1,000. Motorized retractable awning costs range between $1,000 - $4,000.

    Awning installation in Detroit

    If you opt for professional installation, the average cost to have a fabric awning installed in Detroit is $350.

    • The cost to install a metal awning in Detroit varies between $300 - $500, depending on its size, shape and decorative features.
    • Motorized retractable awning installation usually costs between $175 - $300, with another $75 - $150 to have it wired into your home.

    Michigan doesn’t require awning dealers to have any certification beyond a business license. However, most cities, including Detroit, require permits if you want to install an awning on a residential property. For more information on awning permits, check with the Detroit Buildings, Safety Engineering and Environmental Department.

    Check with your city before installing an awning to find out if a permit is required. Professional installation companies usually handle the permit process, but, to be safe, double-check before work begins.
