How to choose an awning in Tallahassee
Deck and patio awnings in Tallahassee are common in homes with lots of backyard space, like those in Killearn Estates. People living in smaller homes in areas such as Southwood can also benefit from adding awnings for shade. Window and door awnings are a popular finishing touch across Tallahassee.
The utility of awnings extends beyond the homeowner to shop and restaurant owners as well. Tallahassee residents are likely to see many storefront awnings in areas where commercial and retail business abound, like Midtown.
Awnings come in different types and materials, plus all different shapes, sizes, colors and patterns. Look for a well-reviewed awning company in Tallahassee that offers the products you need and the ability to customize designs.
Contact several awning companies to find out how long they’ve been in business; how their awnings are built to last in Florida’s warm and severe weather; cost and financing details; installation information; and warranty terms. Most awning companies in Tallahassee are happy to schedule a free in-home consultation to go over products, answer your questions and provide an estimate.
Types of awnings
Awnings in Tallahassee are either stationary or retractable. Stationary awnings, also called fixed awnings, stay in place. Retractable awnings open and close, either manually or by motor. Motorized retractable awnings are available with features like remote control and wind and rain sensors for automatic closing.
Awnings in Tallahassee also come in different materials — mainly, either metal or fabric.
Metal awning (e.g., aluminum)
Sturdy, long-lasting; year-round protection
May rust; design not as customizable; more expensive
Fabric awning (e.g., vinyl, acrylic, canvas)
Highly customizable design; affordability; holds up against most weather
Requires regular cleaning; may fade over time
Awning installation in Tallahassee
Before you install an awning in Tallahassee, find out if you need to obtain a permit from the City of Tallahassee or other governing authority.
You may be able to install an awning yourself. Some awning companies in Tallahassee include professional installation in the price or offer it at an extra charge. According to Florida’s Department of Business and Professional Regulation, awning installation doesn’t require a license. Still, if you do want professional installation, look for a contractor that’s licensed and insured. You can verify licensing on the Florida DBPR website.
