Renovating Awnings & Canopies of a Storefront

Canopies, or awnings, are roof- like structures above a window or door, projecting over the sidewalk. They are typically made of canvas or metal and can shelter customers, merchandise, and storefront windows from direct sunlight. Awnings also provide space for signage and decoration, to enhance the pedestrian experience and welcome customers.

Awnings visually mark door and window locations. They help visually define the width of an individual store and can contribute to business identity. On a single building with multiple storefronts, individual awnings should be located at each storefront opening and be consistent in size, profile, and location to distinguish each business and reveal building details. Multiple awnings on a single building do not need to be identical.

  • Attaching awnings to the building at or below the lower edge of the sign band
