Custom Vs Premanufactured Metal Canopies For Doors

Metal door awnings can be custom-made for a perfect fit.

Metal canopies are bolted onto the side of a house over doorways for many reasons, the most important being protection from the elements. It is must easier to unlock a door in the rain with an canopy over your head. There are two different types available: custom-made and premanufactured. Does this Spark an idea?

Custom Canopies

A custom canopy is designed to your exact specifications, cut to fit over your doorways, and to match or complement the color of your house. Because they are custom-made, these canopies can be any shape that you want.

Premanufactured Canopies

Premanufactured canopies are sold in home improvement stores. They come already painted and ready to install, often with their own hardware. Because they are premade, you are limited to the sizes, shapes and colors that are in stock.

Fun Fact

Metal canopies do not have to be in the standard straight-base-to-curved-awning shape. They can be designed to be flat on top, in an extreme arch, or even in a zigzag pattern.
