Installing a custom commercial awning can be a great way to add plenty of visual interest and practical use to your business property. At High Mountain Signs, we can tailor a unique custom commercial awning design to suit your building and brand image. Before you get started, there are some things to consider when making your selection. High Mountain Signs makes the entire process of acquiring a custom commercial awning quick and painless, from consultation to installation day.
Consider the Weather and Environment
Your custom commercial awning, like many other outdoor signage options, should be well constructed to withstand the elements. Of course, your careful consideration of the weather exposure in your region can let you make smarter choices for how the awning will hold up over the years. Take into account moisture, such as precipitation and humidity, as this can influence the material you use. Beyond decorative purposes, do you need your awning system to shade from sunlight and lower temperatures? This can impact the size and color of your awning.
Know Which Material to Use
At High Mountain Signs, we offer our clients both fabric and vinyl custom commercial awnings. Fabric canvas awnings hold color and show off any unique printed logos and designs in an appealing fashion, and while water-resistant, they are not fully waterproof. Vinyl fabric awnings are quite durable and waterproof, all the while being lightweight. An awning made from or treated with a vinyl coating makes for mildew-resistant and ultraviolet light-resistant construction. This means you are less frequently required to clean your commercial awning or replace a faded awning.
Work with Your Building and Brand
As a general rule, your custom commercial awning should complement your building exterior rather than trying to contrast it to stand out. A modern building facade can look great with an awning in a contemporary color with your business’s logo and letterings. Conversely, older buildings or those that exude a more traditional style may be better off with similarly refined, timeless design when it comes to adding a commercial awning. Usually, the best idea will create a pleasant outdoor appearance that works well in your neighborhood yet helps promote your business brand’s individuality.
