When new clients or customers arrive at your building or property, the first thing they see is the exterior. The property, building, windows, doors, and accents are out front making the first impression.

The exterior of your office space, however minor it may seem, is a direct reflection of your business and the level of care you bring to it. You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Do you know what your space is saying about your business?

We’ve learned some vital lessons in our years of experience and we’re passing them on to business owners like yourself. Here are 5 all too common mistakes we’ve learned and how to avoid them when choosing the perfect copper awning for your space.

1. Providing the Wrong Dimensions

Every bit of material is important and exact measurements must be taken to get the perfect Copper awning which is why office space owners must be diligent about providing the correct dimensions.

For some, it’s as easy as estimating measurements based on the windows and the doors for their current awnings. This is simply because awnings provide shade and protection for your windows and doors but they won’t affect the structure of the space.

It can be easy to overlook the importance of measuring the actual length of the wall and the area that will be hosting your awnings but it’s vital! Skipping this step, could lead to a finished product that’s either too large or too small–wasting time and materials.

When you choose Crescent City Copper, our team makes sure that every inch is accounted for and measured well to maximize its functionality. No need to DIY with CCC!

2. Failing to Consider the Weight

Here is another common mistake building owners tend to make when choosing new awnings. It’s easy to choose something solely because of its design and style while forgetting to consider if the wall can support it.

To make sure that you get the right awning for your office space, check first if your structure is strong enough to withstand the weight of the architectural element or else, you’ll end up wasting your money on the wrong awning while causing damage on your wall.

Again, our artisans have been working with the Copper medium for some time and have seen it all. If you’re unsure or have questions, give us a call! We’d love to hear from you.

3. Choosing the Wrong Type of Awning for your Needs

All copper awnings are similar in terms of durability, longevity, and eco-friendliness. However, there are different types of awnings and a few will only be suitable for specific exteriors.

You can’t just choose whatever is cheapest or most eye catching.

When you consult our craftsmen at Crescent City Copper, you’ll find that we have over 12 different customizable styles. You may choose a simple standing steam or slight sweep for a subtle accent or you may go big and grand like the barrell and dome.

There are so many choices to choose from and we will make sure to craft you one that perfectly fits your office space’s style. Or we’ll help you design something entirely new that is perfect for your desired look and the building you’re working with.

4. Considering Price over Quality & Function

Cost is one of the utmost importance to building and business owners alike.

Compared to the retractable awnings that some office exteriors use, you should expect to spend more on fixed awnings like those that are made of Copper.

But with the higher price tag comes higher quality. Permanent Copper awnings are more cost-effective as they’re easier to clean and maintain. Plus, it lasts for decades. You don’t have to buy a new one every other year because it is built to last.

Cost-effective copper awnings that are not only long-lasting and eco-friendly but beautiful as well? Now, that’s a sound investment!

5. Choosing the Wrong Supplier

To get the perfect copper awning for your office space, you need to get the RIGHT supplier.

How do you know if a supplier is the one?

If the supplier you’re choosing has decades of experience in providing high quality copper awnings and they place high importance on the fact that Copper is a sustainable and durable, green product, and they produce an American made product via local artisans – the choice is obvious!
