Here are just a few points about the different types of awnings and canopies:

1 Most awnings and canopies are free-standing or attached shelters that provide protection from the elements, added space, curb appeal, and branding for commercial applications. They differ mainly in size, shape, color, cost, construction materials, and usage.

2 Awnings and canopies mostly are made from fabrics like canvas or a lightweight metal like aluminum, although glass is sometimes incorporated as well. Fabric products typically require a support structure of aluminum or steel tubing, while metal awnings and canopies may be supported by rods or cables installed in an exterior wall.

3 There are a number of uses for both awnings and canopies. Commercial awnings, sometimes with added lighting underneath, are designed for hotels, restaurants, shops, and office buildings. Dome-shaped door and entrance awnings can be used for homes or businesses. Retractable awnings are used to provide shade when the sun is strong and retract during cooler weather.
