January 1, 2019
If you are a homeowner or business owner and are considering adding an awning to your building, you may not be sure what the benefits would be or which company you would feel confident entrusting with the job. For residents of New England, no contractor is more qualified than Dorchester Awning to design, manufacture, and install custom awnings that meet your exact specifications.
Dorchester Awning has been in business since 1901, and it has the experience, staff, infrastructure, equipment, and dedication to customer satisfaction to make the ideal awning you envision for your building a reality.
Should you decide to purchase custom awnings from Dorchester Awning for your upcoming project, eight things you can expect from its products and services are:
1. Virtually unlimited colors, designs, and graphics.
Dorchester Awning offers hundreds of different colors and patterns. By custom-stitching the canvas, they open up a plethora of possibilities far beyond solid fields. On top of that, Dorchester Awning can add customized graphics and logos to any awning to make it distinctive.
2. A variety of quality materials from which to choose.
You will find custom awnings of cloth, including traditional canvas and woven cotton-polyester blends with a protective acrylic coating. You will also find durable vinyl facades, and framing can be of aluminum, wood, or zinc-coated steel. Depending on the size, location, and purpose of the awning, you’ll have a large variety of materials from which to choose to give you the best results.
3. Numerous shapes and styles.
You will also find options for every shape and size of awning. Concave, convex, straight-sloped diagonal, domed, and elongated domed awnings are common, as are long, walkway-covering awnings and entry area awnings that offer generous shelter. Freestanding awnings, smoking room awnings, and numerous other custom awnings are also routinely manufactured for Dorchester Awning clients.
4. For businesses, expect a boosted bottom line.
Custom awnings are attention-getters that will bring in more customers while lowering your electric bill. Thus, they both save you money and make you money. Additionally, the protection an awning offers customers from the heat, wind, and rain will be much appreciated (especially by smokers who must stand outside).
5. With residential use, also expect savings.
Awnings over your windows and doors can lower indoor temperatures by 8 to 15 degrees and save you money on your power bill. They will also add “curb appeal” and therefore resale value to your home. An all-weather, retractable awning over your patio or deck will create savings by extending the life of both your pavement/decking and any furniture on it.
6. Strength and durability that stand the test of time.
Dorchester Awning knows how to make your new awning withstand heavy wind loads and stresses, resist color fading in the New England sun, and resist rust (for metal frames) through the winter and the rainy season.
7. Computer-aided design for a precise preview.
After discussing with you your preferences for your custom awning, design experts will create a computer model so you can see how the finished product will look on your building.
8. The customer is always priority.
Through the process of planning, making, and installing your awning, you will be kept informed and your preferences will be honored. Furthermore, if any adjustment needs to be made after the initial installation, it is Dorchester Awning’s policy to do whatever is necessary to leave you a 100% satisfied customer.
