Fabric awnings, canopies, sun screens, drop curtains, and other shade structures are some of the most valuable additions for a home or business. Skeptical? Consider this: adding an external sun screen to a home can reduce cooling costs by up to 20%, making such a simple addition a source of savings for years to come.
For West Coast Awnings, shade structures such as fabric canopies and awnings, metal awnings, sun screens, and the like are the core of our business. Since the company’s inception in 1957, we’ve expanded from awnings into many areas, including custom ornamental metal railings, motorized retractable awnings and screens, and umbrellas.
In Addition, our hurricane protection division is one of the oldest in and around Tampa, and is a leader in the Florida storm protection industry. West Coast Awnings operates all over Florida, with a concentration on Hillsborough, Pasco, and Pinellas counties; in particular the Tampa, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg areas. With high quality products and a dedication to excellent service, much of our business is from repeat and referral customers. We believe in building relationships with our clients and consider these referrals the highest possible compliment.
Homeowners in the Tampa, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg areas can contact West Coast Awnings, Florida’s premier canopy & sun structure company. We’ve been in the business since 1957, and we’ve perfected the art of designing awnings and canopies that protect against sun damage.
