Handcrafted Awnings Since 1910

Our Story

Founded in 1910 with a small shop and a few customers. Thriving in Los Angeles today with an incredible team of craftsmen and hundreds of 5 star reviews. 

History & experience meet modern craftsmanship & customer service. 

Under the leadership of President Ethan Halpern, American Awning’s incredible 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 advanced projects. 

We are looking forward to crafting the perfect awning for you.
