How do I select the right awning or sign for my business/residence?
Signs-We recommend that you evaluate your building/residence by completing a few simple steps. First, suit storefront signs to your location, keep it simple, be aware that zoning regulations may apply, and choose a design that best fits your needs. There are different types of signage solutions that fit your needs. Painted plywood signs, painted glass (storefront window), punched metal signboard, metal logo and lettering (three-dimensional), fabric signs, metal sign band, monument signs, sand-blasted wood signs, channel letter signs (reverse lit), cabinet/box signs, under-canopy sign, pylon signage (to include tenant panels), blade/projection signs, and awnings with graphics are among some of the various options available. See our Signs page.
Awnings-We recommend, when choosing an awning for your business or residence, that you consider weather conditions, visibility, the color scheme, awning material, your specific needs, the location of your residence or business, the number of awnings you’ll want and where, and the amount you want to spend. There are many different styles of awnings so you’ll want to become most familiar with your specific needs. In addition to traditional fabric awnings, lit and non-lit, we also offer metal awnings. Our product line includes standing seam, architectural canopies, and .090 metal skinned awnings. See our Awnings page.
**Frame construction is typically all aluminum, mig-welded, staple system. We also build steel frames for longevity, and ease of recovering. However, we prefer to manufacture the aluminum staple system. Ask a salesman to explain the differences and/or advantages of staple over steel.
How resilient is the fabric?

How long will an awning last?
Awnings range in life expectancy. Most awnings, if cleaned and cared for properly, can last a very long time. Our welded aluminum awning frames can last 20 to 30 years or more and can be recovered numerous times. Awning fabrics range in life expectancy (See our Materials page). Most fabrics, if cared for properly, can last 5 to 10 years depending on type, color, and brand. If you are purchasing a retractable awning for your business or residence, please note that your awnings life expectancy will increase if you remove the fabric and store it during the winter months. All awnings are fully warranted by Beagle One, Inc. for a period of one year. After the expended time frame, covered by Beagle One, Inc., the manufacture’s warranties are implemented for fabric or coatings on metal frames.
