Residential Awnings

Even if you enjoy hanging out in the sun, too much direct sunlight can ruin your fun. It generates oppressive heat that makes outdoor entertainment spaces uncomfortable. The sun’s UV rays damage your skin and your eyes and sometimes cause cancer. When sunlight enters your interior spaces, it gradually fades your carpeting, drapes, and upholstery. If you want to control your sun exposure, residential awnings provide the shade and protection you need. Our custom sunshade systems let you decide how and when to let the sunshine in.
At Manchester Awning, we fabricate custom awnings and canopies that enhance your home with charm and functionality. We give you the protection you need to increase your outdoor comfort. Our sunshade systems let you enjoy the sun while controlling excessive exposure and minimizing your UV risks. When an unexpected shower passes through, awnings also give you shelter from the rain.

Too Much Sunlight Costs You Money

When sunlight enters your home, it generates heat that pushes your cooling system to work harder. Our residential sunshade systems serve as a protective barrier that significantly reduces solar heat gain inside your home. Your air conditioning system uses less fuel to cool your home. This reduction can save you up to 25% on energy costs.

Fabric Awnings

Fabric awnings provide protection from sun and rain. Our designs can incorporate your choice of color and style, and you can choose acrylic fabric when you desire a water-resistant cover.

Retractable Awnings

Our retractable awnings give you the convenience of instant shade. A simple mechanism lets you extend or retract your awning on demand. A self-supporting lateral arm eliminates in-ground support poles. We customize your system with colors that add attractive design elements to your home’s exterior.

Patio Roof Systems

A four seasons sunroof gives you unlimited options. We can install it as a permanent patio cover with a snow load rating. You have the option of permanently enclosing your space to create a sunroom that’s cool in summer and warm in winter.
