Metal Clamshell Awning Clearwater

Aluminum Awning Replacement - Clearwater, FL

We received a call recently from James in Clearwater, FL who had a set of clamshell metal awnings that were in desperate need of replacement.  While he had done an admirable job of maintaining the awnings by applying new coats of paint, rust and corrosion had finally worn them out.  This is a common problem all over Tampa Bay, especially when a home is near the salt water of the Gulf or Tampa Bay.  No matter how diligent a home owner is about maintenance on their steel awnings, they will eventually rust and fall apart.  Unless they are made of Aluminum!

By replacing his old metal awnings with new all-aluminum awnings, James will received decades of consistent performance without the maintenance and headaches.  Our aluminum clamshell awnings are made with powder coated aluminum decking, aluminum brackets and arms, and stainless steel hardware for the ultimate in corrosion resistance.  Available in a rainbow of colors, aluminum clamshell awnings can be folded down when not in use to provide some security and windborne debris protection.  Also, these aluminum fold down awnings provide excellent longevity and shading for windows and doors alike.

If you have a need to replace or service metal awnings on your home or business, give us a call.  We would like the opportunity to earn your metal awning business.  West Coast Awnings has been building, installing, and services this type of product for nearly six decades and we have the experience and knowledge to get you the right product for the right price every time.

Custom Color Aluminum Awning - Orlando, FL

Custom Color, Custom Fit Aluminum Awning for Disney

This week we had the priviledge of working for one of the most famous Floridians of all time.  Mr. Mickey Mouse himself ordered an architectural aluminum awning from us to protect his favorite gate guards from the sun and rain.  He also needed his awning to blend in with a rather unique color scheme as you can see in the photos above.  On top of that, the wall to which we had to attach our awning had a unique slant that made a standard vertical mount impossible!  Thanks to our incredible engineering staff, we found a solution and after an installation that started at 11:00PM and lasted through the night to 8:00AM the next morning, Mr. Mouse was very pleased with the results!  Check out the photos below:

Metal awnings and specifically aluminum awnings are becoming more and more popular for our customers here in sunny Florida.  While welded aluminum awnings are more expensive than their fabric awning bretheren, they are easier to maintain and do not fade with the sun like fabric awnings eventually do.  At West Coast Awnings, we have the ability to produce high quality, custom-built metal awnings for your business that will not only serve an important function, but will also enhanve the overall design and appearance of your structure.  Give us a call today and put our design experience to work for you!

Standing Seam Mansard Awning | Clearwater

Are you looking for shade and rain protection, but aren't too keen on the thought of replacing fabric every ten or so years?  Maybe you should consider a mansard or standing seam awning.  These awnings are very popular in commercial applications, but are becoming more popular in residential applications.  They come in over 20 colors with a Kynar painted finish on the top side, or they can be custom powdercoated to over 80 colors.  

The aluminum frames can be left unpowdercoated or can be powdercoated to match the standing seam roof pans.  These metal awnings have the potential to last for up to 30 years with proper maintenance.  They come in a variety of roof pan styles at a variety of different price points.  Other names for these would be mansard awnings, commercial awnings, roof pan awnings, or architectural awnings.  If you would be interested in these for your home or business, we would be happy to give you a free estimate.

Metal awnings in the Cleawater, Florida area are an excellent choice for business owners and residents alike.  For providing shade and protection from rain, it is difficult to find a better solution.  Aluminum awning constuction is the best choice available for its corrosion resistance and recyclable material properties.  We really enjoy building custom metal awnings for our clients in Clearwater, Tampa, and St Pete and we hope that we will have the opportunity to discuss your project with you.  Ideally, you will gather as much information as you can about awnings because the more you understand about metal awnings, the more likely you will be to contact West Coast Awnings, the best awning company in Tampa Bay.
