When creating or updating any outdoor space, there are many options to meet your needs. From entertainment to seating, safety and comfort, all are important and should, when executed properly, work together. If your outdoor space is missing something, consider a well-appointed awning.

Awnings fulfil more than one need in your backyard. While an awning will provide protection from the elements, it will also add to the appearance of your space. The right awning in the right space can be the icing on the cake.

Window Awnings

If your window is begging for some relief from the heat of the sun, a simple stationary awning may be all that is needed. More than one window awning can anchor a space and provide a colour theme. A wide variety of colours and patterns will give you loads of choice.

Fixed Aluminum Awnings

Fixed aluminum awnings go a long way in adding character to the exterior of your home. Talk about a custom look. A fixed aluminum awning will blend right in with your existing structure and provide constant shelter from the element, all while representing your individual style. A custom fit paired with your favourite colour will have your fixed awning setting the tone for your outdoor space. You will also find your fixed aluminum awning tying in other outdoor elements, providing a tailored look to your outdoor living space.

Retractable Awnings

Retractable awnings are ideal for larger spaces such as a deck. A large awning that covers a deck should be able to retract to enjoy the sun when desired. Retractable awnings can be operated manually or with a remote controlled motor run system. An excellent retractable awning will protect you and your loved ones from both sun and light rain, making your space more comfortable. It can also be stored away when desired.

Commercial Awnings

In the market for a commercial awning? Commercial awnings will carry your brand name with style. Traditional, Visage, Ambassador, Duchess, Entrance Marquee or Waterfall. No matter what style you choose, commercial awnings double their duty by providing protection from the elements while providing signage for your business.


Awnings come in a variety of sizes. In addition, they will not rot, rust or warp. They are lightweight while being sturdy. Unlike umbrellas, they are reliable, customizable and durable. They can be sized within the inch to provide a built-in look. Awnings don’t just come in a variety of sizes, but styles too. Pitch, style, colour, and pattern will determine the unique look of your awning. All Jans’ awnings are manufactured with Sunbrella fabric, which is durable, water and fade resistant.
