A window awning is an external window covering that dates back to ancient Egypt, Syria and Rome , and were
used by the ancient Romans, most famously on the Colosseum.
Awnings attach to the outside wall of your house, providing a shield from the sun. They will keep your home
cooler, reduce your air-conditioning bills, and help protect furnishings from sun damage. As well as being used
over windows, awnings can be installed above doors, or used to shade decks or patios.
