This is an Alumawood solid cover being used as a nice entry awning. The redwood color works perfectly with the colors of the home. When I ordered this job I was informed they had just discontinued the redwood color. I begged enough and they came up with enough pieces for us to complete the job. The customer loved this one so much they ordered one for the side of the house and one for the back. We wound up buying our supplier out of the redwood touch up paint and painted our own parts. It all looked great and the customers were thrilled.

Installing an aluminum door canopy kit can be relatively easy, especially for those who are handy with tools and have experience in minor home projects.

Our installations are all aluminum which is why I mention those options first. There are, however, other options available. Vinyl is affordable, easy to install, and comes in a variety of colors and designs. Wood canopies add a classic, warm look to your home. However, they need to be properly maintained to resist weather damage.
Fabric or canvas canopies are versatile and can be quite stylish. They are generally less durable than more rigid materials but can be easy and inexpensive to replace. Polycarbonate is a type of plastic that is incredibly durable and resistant to weather conditions. These canopies can be clear or tinted and are generally lightweight. Galvanized steel is highly resistant to damage and weather conditions, but a heavier option and may be more difficult to install. Fiberglass canopies are incredibly durable and resists rot, rust, and corrosion.
Each material has different care requirements and a unique look, so consider what works best with your home's exterior, your climate, and how much maintenance you're willing to do.
