We have been doing quite a few Aluminum Awning installations in the Lake Norman area this year. This customer wanted to cover his back deck area that was already being used as a relaxing outdoor space. We had to make a 90 degree corner along the mounting edge of the house itself to accommodate the protruding sliding glass door. The supports were attached directly to the deck railing as they were properly built and sturdy.
You can see here in the close up photo just how the aluminum awning attaches to the home. The white colored aluminum matches nicely with the existing vinyl windows and trim. The floating channel of aluminum in the center of the awning can be outfitted with an outdoor ceiling fan. This deck is now sheltered nicely from and rain or intense sun that will provide many comfortable days for this Lake Norman home and the entire family.
