Retractable and Deck Awnings -

Whether you are looking for permanent year round weather protection or retractable sun shade for your deck or patio Acme Awning has the widest selection of custom built options in the Twin Cities.

 

Acme Awning builds a variety of home awnings including custom canvas stationary and retractable awnings, solar screens and porch curtains, deck awnings and patio covers, fabric awnings and window awnings—all designed to be the perfect green solution! They increase energy efficiency, protect interior furniture and carpets from sun damage, and enhance your outdoor living space during warmer months.

 

Awnings are also a simple, affordable way to cool your home naturally. A study by the Professional Awning Manufacturers Association, commissioned through the Center for Sustainable Research at the University of Minnesota, determined that by reducing direct solar gain through windows, awnings can help reduce cooling costs by as much as 33 percent in climates like the Twin Cities, Minnesota. This in turn helps reduce electricity demand during peak periods and decreases the need for new generators. Click here to see the study by the Professional Awning Manufacturers Association.
