How to choose an awning in Boise

skyline

Homes and businesses in all areas of Boise, from the North End to the Boise Bench to Harris Ranch, can benefit from awnings.

Awnings in Boise can be placed on decks and patios, windows and doors or any other part of a home or business. They add to living and business space; protect skin, furniture and flooring from damaging ultraviolet rays; help keep your property insulated and increase its value and curb appeal.

When choosing an awning, consider:

  • Awning company reputation
  • Fixed vs. retractable awning
  • Awning material
  • Awning size, shape, color and pattern
  • Ease of installation/professional installation
  • Awning warranty/service
  • Awning cost

Types of awnings

Awnings in Boise are fixed or retractable, depending on whether they open or close. Retractable awnings operate either by motor or manually using a crank. The advantage of having a retractable awning is being able to extend or retract it anytime; a fixed, or stationary, awning doesn’t give you this option.

Awnings are also available in different materials:

  • Metal awnings, including aluminum awnings, are durable and strong and are the common building material for stationary awnings.
  • Fabric awnings, made with acrylic, vinyl, canvas or cotton, are lightweight and highly customizable for color and pattern. Fabric awnings are UV-resistant but are not as strong as aluminum awnings and often require more maintenance.

Awning installation in Boise

You may be able to install an awning in Boise yourself. Some awning companies sell products with detailed self-installation instructions — even for motorized awnings — and a phone number to call in case you need assistance. Professional awning installation is offered by many awning companies but may cost extra.

Before installing an awning in Boise, check with the City of Boise whether a building permit is required. If you get professional installation, find out if the installer is a registered contractor in the State of Idaho.
