American Awning & Window Co. has been servicing Southeastern Massachusetts as a general contractor for over 30 years. Its simple beginnings started during the rush for vinyl replacement windows, and vinyl siding in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. People were eager to replace old, drafty, most times wooden framed windows, and when vinyl replacement windows came along it was a huge step up from anything seen before. Also, vinyl siding caught on around that time as a durable, zero maintenance alternative to wooden shingles. It was during this period that the company branched out to do a small amount of business manufacturing window awnings and aluminum door canopies.
As time moved by, more and more people had already had their windows replaced, the rebates on energy star rated windows dried up, and the company needed to take a step in a new direction. Awnings have a market in New England. Aluminum models are great for protection of entry ways and windows in the winter. They keep snow, sleet, ice, and rain off doorsteps. These issues can be hazardous in Massachusetts and there was a need for a company to provide related services. At the same time, summers in Southeastern Massachusetts regularly reach temperatures of 90+ degrees, and houses not built recently rarely have central air conditioning. This created a great market for canvas window awnings. Put them up in the spring, and enjoy a summer of shade, and reduction of indoor temperatures by 15 degrees or more by keeping direct sunlight off your windows. So it was in the early 2000’s that the window business took a back seat for the awning business.
Since then, professionals at American Awning & Window Co. have mastered many different types of awnings. We have come to provide aluminum awnings, canvas window awnings, retractable awnings, stationary deck canopies, commercial awnings used as signs, deck curtains, deck screens, and much more. Finally after more than 30 years in business, and thousands of satisfied customers we have found our calling. From our knowledgable sales staff, to our seasoned installation technicians, and anywhere in between, American Awning & Window Co. has the expertise for any awning project.
