Awnings are generally attached over windows, doors or sidewalks for protection and security. Awnings are used to protect against rain, sunlight, wind and other natural calamities. Having a wooden awning can provide extra space to your home, making the outdoor space usable. It allows you to spend time outside without worrying about getting sun burnt. The reason why most people prefer wooden awnings to the fabric awning is that it gives the home an old world look while having long durability.

Wooden awnings can be painted to match your home and add architectural value to the whole space. These awnings look natural and give a warm look to any home.

Wooden awnings can be paired well with iron frames to make the whole setting stronger and more stable. One of the advantages of having wooden awnings is that you will never have to worry about drawing them in when there is heavy rainfall or snow. Your porch or deck will remain dry and clean under the wooden shades. They also provide you with the freedom to arrange furniture the way you like instead of placing them in and out every-time you draw your awning in. Wooden awnings provide cooler shade than any other type of awning.

A good waterproofing can ensure that your wooden awning will be safe from rain or sun.
