Transform Your Outdoor Living Space and Enjoy Energy Cost-Savings

Permanent and Retractable Awnings

An awning is a valuable home or business improvement that makes an outdoor living space more comfortable for you, your family, and your guests. All of our awnings are made of high-quality components and fabrics. With their easy day-to-day maintenance, they’ll stay in excellent condition for many years. Depending on the location of your awning and your personal style, we’ll help you find the most suitable choice.

We offer a wide variety of awning options, including:





Protect your home or business – no matter what Mother Nature throws at you. On sunny, hot days, awnings offer valuable shade and protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. By reducing direct sunlight, the temperature on your patio or deck becomes more comfortable. Choose an aluminum awning or patio roof so that you can enjoy shelter during rainstorms. 

Awnings block the sun’s heat and harmful rays from entering your home. This provides better cooling effects than blinds or drapes and reduces your dependency on air conditioning. Besides the environmental benefits of reducing your carbon footprint, awnings offer cost savings on your monthly energy bills. 

Awnings provide a stylish look that increases your home’s curb appeal and adds resale value. They’re also a practical way to expand your seasonal living space. Select from a wide range of awning colours, styles, and fabrics to compliment your home or business. Their low maintenance, water repellent, and mildew resistant design will keep your awning looking its best for years to come.

Our Awnings at Work

Window Awnings

Window awnings are a great way to keep the sun and weather out of your windows and improve the look of your house or business. Window awnings come in a variety of colours, styles, and fabrics to suit your needs. Window awnings are easy to maintain and add value to your home or business.

Fixed Aluminum Awnings vs Retractable Fabric Awnings

Fixed aluminum awnings are permanently attached to the wall or window, while retractable fabric awnings can be retracted when not in use. Which awning you choose is up to you and how you want your home to look.

Fixed aluminum awnings are perfect for sunny windows where you want to limit the amount of sun shining in during all seasons. Because fixed metal awnings are permanent, you never have to fear them getting damaged in heavy snow. In addition, aluminum awnings block more sunlight than fabric awnings.

Meanwhile, retractable fabric awnings are the most common type of awning and are available in a variety of colours, styles, and fabrics. Because fabric window awnings are retractable, you can allow in the sun whenever you need it or block it when you require a darker room.

Door Canopies

A door canopy is either a fixed aluminum or fabric awning that acts as an umbrella for your front door. Many people enjoy sitting on their front porches to watch the world go by, and door canopies provide protection from the sun, rain and wind.

Fixed door canopies are permanently attached to your house, while retractable door canopies can be retracted when not in use. Fixed door canopies are helpful during our Ottawa winters as they reduce the amount of snow near your entrances. Shielding your entranceway from the snow minimizes ice build-up and snow tracked into your home.

Door canopies come in a variety of colours, styles and fabrics to match the look of your home. In addition, door canopies provide some shelter from the rain, snow and wind for packages dropped off by Amazon or other deliveries.

Patio Awnings

Patio awnings are perfect for those who want to spend time outdoors on their patio but don’t want to worry about the weather. A retractable awning is attached to your home and is easy to retract when not in use. Fully retracted, patio awnings can remain up during the winter or when there is inclement weather.

There’s even the option to motorize your patio awning where a phone app can control it. Motorized awnings allow you to open or retract your awning even when you’re not home.

Henry installed our awning a few years ago. Great price and excellent customer service. Was having a minor issue today and sent him an email at 6:00pm on Friday afternoon. He called me back within ten minutes and helped me fix the problem over the phone in 2 minutes. Couldn’t ask for better customer service and support. I would highly recommend this company.

Was a pleasure working with the Jan’s team. Professional workmanship and very happy with the final product. Screens are a great additional to our outdoor space.

On the recommendation of a neighbour we contacted Jans Awnings and Rollshutters for a quote on a deck awning. Henry Jans came to our house for a contactless quote. We were happy with the price and chose a fabric. The installers were polite, professional, knowledgeable and efficient. We’re very happy with the results.
