How to choose an awning in Buffalo

Buffalo skyline

Awnings are a common addition in the Buffalo area, lowering utility costs and providing a comfortable place to relax in the shade. Locals might frequently see awnings on businesses and apartment buildings downtown or in Allentown. Similarly, homes in East Aurora, Orchard Park and Williamsville utilize this feature to shield entryways and gathering areas from harsh Buffalo weather.

When choosing an awning in Buffalo, take these factors into consideration:

  • Size
  • Materials
  • Operation
  • Durability
  • Affordability
  • Maintenance requirements
  • Warranty

Types of awnings

Awnings in Buffalo can be either retractable or stationary. Retractable awnings conveniently allow you to open the awning on a hot summer day or keep it closed as weather cools. Retractable awnings can be either manually operated or motorized.

Awnings in Buffalo come in different materials, each with distinct features:

  • Aluminum: Aluminum is affordable, durable and capable of withstanding the worst of Buffalo’s weather. Aluminum awnings provide great protection from sunshine and rain, but you won’t have as much style and color selection.
  • Vinyl: Vinyl is light, flexible and long-lasting. It’s also waterproof, UV-resistant and available in a variety of colors. While vinyl awnings are easy to maintain, they are prone to tearing.
  • Acrylic: Acrylic is a customizable, high-quality material with a long life span. It can be a bit more expensive than other materials.
  • Cotton: Cotton is a relatively cheap, environmentally friendly material that is machine washable. The color on cotton awnings can fade over time, though.

Awning installation in Buffalo

Many awnings in Buffalo are self-installable, but local awning providers will also do the installation for an extra charge. The cost for these services will vary depending on the size, type and location of the awning.

Your awning should come with a multiyear warranty covering defects in materials, workmanship and the motor (if applicable). Extra protection may be available to cover weather-related damage.

Many awning companies include a trial period so you can try an awning in Buffalo. If you don’t like the awning, you can return it for a refund.



SunSetter awnings are American-made and backed by a five-year limited warranty. Choose from woven acrylic or traditional laminated fabric and manual or motorized options. Awnings can be easily installed by the owner in two to three hours on any kind of siding, or you can get professional installation from a dealer. The company includes a 90-day, money-back home trial. Customers are highly satisfied with their SunSetter awnings and recommend them to others.
