Why Choose Metal for an Awning?

Over time, metal awnings and canopies are generally able to withstand the elements better than the retractable cloth fabrics or wood alternatives. Wood and cloth are weaker materials, and as such awnings constructed from them require more maintenance and wear out more quickly. If metal is the obvious choice, then what makes copper so much better than the other options for metal awnings?

Types of Metal Awnings

Iron and Steel

While certainly beautiful, iron and steel are much heavier and more awkward to work with than copper. The nature of these metals makes it more difficult to mold them into the many shapes and subtle variations available in copper awnings. Additionally, these heavier metals are more expensive than copper, making them a costlier material for metal awnings.


The cheapest and lightest material for metal awning construction, aluminum is a very common choice for metal awnings. However, aluminum comes in a limited range of styles and is less aesthetically appealing than copper.


The Clear Leader in Metal Awnings.  Copper has the greatest stylistic potential of all the metal options as well as the economic appeal of aluminum. It is the most durable material of all three, making it the most certain long-term value for your investment.

The unique nature of the patina that forms over the awnings provides a one-of-a-kind appearance as well as a barrier to environmental wear and tear.  This natural finish ensures it never needs painting as the patina provides a protective coating instead.

The features of metal awnings including natural finish, low maintenance, high quality material and unmatched durability make a great addition to any residential setting!

Copper awnings come in an incredible range shapes and sizes to cover most areas, from classic and traditional to innovative and contemporary. Explore the many options available in copper awnings from Crescent City Copper, or contact our friendly staff for more information.
