Canopies For Your Business: Why It Helps

February 27, 2020


​So, what’s a canopy? Why should you care and how can it help your business or commercial property? For starters, a canopy is a shade structure that extends further from your building than a traditional awning or patio cover. 
A canopy provides a shaded walkway or area for your guests. Think about entryways to hotels and some restaurants. Canopies are excellent for any commercial property looking to spruce


  • Advertising: A canopy, like an awning, can be printed on with a logo or design that can capture the attention of people. The stationary canopy is up 24 hours a day, seven days a week and thus is a permanent advertisement for your business.
  • Lounge Area: A canopy can provide an area in front of your building or even in the back-patio area for people to lounge. You can put outdoor furniture, hang some lights, etc., and really design something that will bring people back to your business. Offering an out-door lounge area is a great way to help your business stand apart from the competition.
  • Aesthetic: Canopies are beautiful when done right; these shade structures can add a level of 3-dimensional beauty that makes your business the look the cream of the crop.
  • Competitiveness: Canopies help your business by also making it competitive in terms of looks and visibility. Imagine your building has a canopy that stands out vs. a building next door without a shade structure. Which business or restaurant will customer more likely walk into?

Canopies help your business by providing more than just shade; they add value to your building and create space that can help you generate revenue and attract more clientele. Being the crème de la crème of your competition means standing out from the crowd and adding a canopy certainly helps in that endeavor.
