Three Things to Consider When You’re Choosing Canvas Awnings

For three decades and counting, Maple Leaf Awning & Canvas has been manufacturing and installing custom-built canvas awnings and specialty shade structures, and our custom-built awnings and canopies currently adorning storefronts throughout The Natural State. A storefront awning is a one-time advertising expense that serves as a great call to action for prospective customers. A well-designed awning gets attention and it encourages customers to pull into your parking lot. You’ll also see an increase in walk-in business from people patronizing other businesses in your shopping center!

We encourage you to schedule a free, no-obligation design consultation at any time and let us show you your options. Bring us some photos of your storefront and we’ll load them into our state-of-the-art Awning Composer software, and you’ll be able to see exactly how your awnings will look once they’re installed.
