Warm spring and summer days are the perfect chance to set up a canopy tent, cook up some delicious treats and invite friends and family over. If you already have a cozy patio or deck where you’d like to enjoy a breezy summer day, awnings and patio covers can also provide soothing shade and cover from that rogue summer rain shower. On the other hand, if you crave traveling to a beach or park, you can bring a portable canopy with you to ensure you’ll still have access to shade and cover.
What qualities should I look for in an awning or canopy?
Your canvas canopy tent or patio cover should be durable — it shouldn’t tear easily, and should also feature rip stop capabilities that will prevent small holes from turning into smaller ones. It should also be fire resistant and have UV blocking qualities. Your metal canopy frame should be constructed from stainless steel or another strong material. The frame and canopy should also be easy to set up. No one enjoys struggling to stretch a canvas over the frame or trying to decipher set-up instructions.
What sizes do awnings and canopies come in?
If you plan on using your canopy often, take into account the size of your family plus the number of friends you might also have over. Canopy sizes range from small, 3-foot canopies to 10 x 10-foot gazebo-style designs. The size of an awning may depend on the quality of its construction. Heavy-duty designs can be quite sizeable — up to 35 x 13 feet or more. Lower priced awnings are more likely to max out around 18 x 10 feet.
