As we approach another brutally hot Arkansas summer, we’re always looking for ways to beat the heat. The easiest way is to stay inside and crank up the air conditioning, but that’s simply no substitute for sitting in the shade with a cold drink and watching your children play in your backyard!

Residential awnings and specialty shade structures are one of the most cost-effective ways that you can stay cool all summer long, and our team at Maple Leaf Awning and Canvas are always a phone call away if you have any questions, or want to schedule a free estimate. We’re the best place to buy an awning in Arkansas, and we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on everything that we sell. Here are a few of the many benefits of investing in an awning or canopy for your home:


All of our custom canvas awnings and canopies are made from high quality Sunbrella Fabric, which offers up to 98% UV protection, as well as protection from the rain. Whether you want a simple canopy over your front door, or you want to cover your entire patio, we can custom build your awning or shade structure to your exact specifications.


Let’s not forget that in addition to keeping you and your family cool, a canvas awning can add a real touch of class to your home. If you bring us a photo of your home, we can load it into our Awning Composer software, and you can see how your awnings will look once installed. Sunbrella fabric is available in hundreds of colors and patterns, and our awnings and canopies are available in several shapes and styles.

Energy Savings

Awnings can also significantly lower your energy costs! According to the U.S. Department of Energy, awnings can reduce summer solar heat gain by up to 65% for your south-facing windows and up to 77% on west-facing windows.

Don’t spend another summer hidden inside watching television reruns! You bought a home with a big backyard for a reason, and an awning or canopy is a great way to help you create great new outdoor memories with your family and friends.
