Handcrafted Awnings Since 1910

Our Story

American Awning is a family owned business founded in 1910 in a small shop with just a few customers. Today, American Awning has grown and is thriving in Los Angeles with an incredible team of craftsmen and hundreds of 5 star reviews. 

History & experience meet modern craftsmanship & customer service. 

Under the thoughtful direction of President Ethan Halpern, American Awning’s deep history has been able to keep up with modern needs by adding waterproof retractable awning systems, shade sails, and metal canopies and the technology needed for projects of all sizes. 

We can’t wait to handcraft the perfect awning for you.

Outside of awnings, you can find Ethan running around a park with his wife, two kids, and dog, or hurtling down the side of a mountain on a bike.
