How to choose the right copper awning
Do you like the look of these beautiful copper awnings but aren’t sure how to choose a style or size? Don’t worry – we can help!
Now that you have made the decision to go with copper awnings on your home or business, the next step is simple: selecting the particular style of awning that suits your needs, appeals to your personal taste, and works for your budget.
Crescent City Copper provides a range of already-made styles as well as offering customizable awnings for atypical sizes or specific styling preferences.
How should you choose the best awning for you?
Ask yourself the following questions:
1. What are your budget constraints?
Awnings at Crescent City Copper are priced based on ones that would fit a standard door or window. These awnings measure approximately 48 inches by 24 inches. However, if you are interested in a larger awning or one to fit an atypically sized window or door, a customized awning may be the best option, although they are more expensive than the standard sized ones.
2. What style of awning would be most flattering to the architectural style of your structure?
Is your home or office built in a traditional style? If so, then you are probably interested in the awnings that will complement a traditional home, such as a canopy awning (also called a wedge awning). However, if your structure is more modern or contemporary in style, then you would want to consider an awning style that is also modern and contemporary, such as a dome awning or a standing seam awning.
3. Choosing an iron bracket
Iron brackets can create a beautiful effect for your copper awning, and come in a variety of styles to complement the different awning options. However, if you are not interested in brackets, your awning can be fitted by the specialists at Crescent City to stand alone as well.
4. Do I want the copper on my awning to age naturally?
Another way of asking this question to yourself is, what color do I want my copper awnings to be? If you love how they look when they are brand new, you can treat them so that they will not form the patina and change colors. However, if you love the look of aged copper, you can treat them using a different method and speed up the aging so that they will color more quickly. Of course, you can also wait and let nature take its course, as your copper awnings will age beautifully on their own once exposed to the elements.
Once you have considered each of these questions, you are ready to make a decision! Take a look around our inventory and select the awning that fits your needs.
