Copper Awnings Overview:
Copper awnings provide beautiful framing to any door or window and provide a lifetime of style and satisfaction. Copper awnings can be functional as well. Awnings can provide temporary cover from the weather elements, protection for doors and windows, and they also provide shade which can reduce utility costs and protect interior furniture from direct sunlight. Awnings made from our 16 oz. copper do not need to be cleaned or painted as they develop a natural patina, over time. Dependent on weather climates, the natural copper color will turn a rich, rustic brown (some shades of red, orange, and purple often visible), then progress to a deep, chocolate brown, and finally a beautiful, grey-green patina. A popular add on, to the awnings, is the patina finish (aged green copper look), as many customers are interested in the final copper aging appearance. Although we only have our standard door awnings, standard window awnings, rounded door awnings, and our rounded window awnings listed, we welcome any custom copper awning designs, to fit your project needs.

General Instructions for Installing a Copper Awning:
- Use clean, protective gloves when handling and installing copper awnings.
- Lay out dimensions of awning on wall. If possible, find studs and mark where they are. You may want to temporarily nail a 2″ x 4″ board to the wall where the bottom of the awning will be positioned for support during installation.
- Drill as many holes as you can in the support flange around the outside of the awning to match where the studs are. Then, drill more holes uniformly around the flange (6″ to 8″ apart) on both sides and the top. Use at least 1 1/4″ long plated wood screws or sheet rock screws. You may want to use a clear caulking around the top and sides. Be sure to level the 2″ x 4″ support board.
