7 Steps to Finding the Perfect Building Canopy Design for Your Business

Digital Strategies Support - Wednesday, April 25, 2018

We strongly believe that every business should have its own unique look, and strive to carve out a distinct personality. A customized building canopy design is a great way to do this. Canopies and awnings are not only useful for keeping the rain away, but also, if designed correctly, they can really tell the story of your business and invite potential customers inside. We want our clients to stand out from the rest, so we encourage you to customize your fabric choice, logo, awning style, and more. Our designs are tailored to fit your exact requirements, and we’ll go through an extensive collaboration process, where we help you create the most attractive awning for your business. The design process is both fun and exciting, but you should be aware of the various steps involved.

Understand your Needs

Before anything else, we need to have a complete understanding of exactly what you’re looking for. That’s why we’ll sit with you to discuss your requirements and expectations, and try to get a sense of the “personality” of your business. We’ll also determine your price range, and work to find an option that fits within your budget.

Consider the Available Options

There are a myriad of different building canopy designs, styles, color combinations, and materials, and we’ll make sure you’re aware of each of them. The amount of options available can be daunting, but we’ll guide you through the selection process with all the information you need to make a decision. 

Choosing a Color

Awnings and canopies come in a variety of colors and patterns, available from the world's top fabric manufacturers. There are no limits when it comes to color or pattern, and our highly-skilled stitching team is trained to create awnings according to customer specifications, no matter the combination of color or pattern.

Site Evaluation

To understand how your selected building canopy design will work in your location, we’ll review your home or commercial building to get a better creative sense of what we’re working with. Our site visit is crucial to making sure all the pieces fit into place.

Digital Imaging

Before physically building out your awning or canopy, we typically do a computer model of what it will look like on your home or building, and make adjustments as necessary. Particularly for commercial applications, computer imaging can be an important and indispensable part of getting it right. Oftentimes we will go through many design iterations to make sure we get the look and feel just right.


Once you have approved the design, our experienced staff will begin to create your awning in our workshop, and all you have to do is wait!

Implementation and Ongoing Maintenance

When completed, your awning or canopy is installed by our team of experienced installers. But even after installation, we want to make sure our product continues to look good and work for your business. That’s why we offer continued free maintenance, cleaning, and adjustments if needed.
