Forty Years! Time Flies When You’re Having SUN …Best Awning Company Has Been Covering Colorado Since 1979 Sometimes I have to shake my head in mild amazement when I realize it’s been four decades since Best Awning Company was founded. January 1, 1979, we embarked on our mission to provide our customers with the very “best” solutions for their home and business exteriors, starting by founding Conifer Gutter Service to provide expert gutter and downspout service throughout the west metro and Front Range areas. We’ve truly “grown up” with the home exterior industry. These days, Best Awning Company is a separate, second firm. We’re still known for high-quality work by both firms, and thanks to our cherished customers, [...]

Keep Your Cool This Summer … And Save Energy With A Retractable Awning Or Sun Shade Summer has arrived… and with it, all the fun outdoor activities that make Colorado such a wonderful place to live and work. Swimming… picnics by the backyard pool… cookouts on the back deck… and, for restaurants, a return to outdoor dining (and the extra revenue you gain by opening additional seating on your patio or deck). The heat is on! And, of course, so is your air conditioner. It’s not uncommon for a homeowner or business manager to set the indoor comfort system for their property to automatically maintain an acceptable level of coolness during Colorado’s hot summer months. As a result, [...]
Restaurants: Now’s The Time To Plan For Fall Profits A Great Awning-Covered Outdoor Space Is A Money Maker Nothing beats dining in the great Colorado outdoors. So why don’t more restaurants offer outdoor dining to their customers? Many do – and the restaurants that do outdoor dining right make a lot of money with it. Some restaurants make an effort at opening up a dining patio, but don’t really think it through… they toss some high-top tables and cheap umbrellas out there, and soon find customers complaining when a Colorado wind storm or rain cloud passes by. Before long, they’re right back to keeping a waiting list for customers who overflow their limited indoor seating. Still others don’t [...]
Springtime In Colorado: In Like A Lion Today’s Best Awnings Can Protect Themselves From The Wind Let’s shoot the breeze about a subject that gets a surprising amount of “air” time here in the Rocky Mountain West. I’m referring, of course, to the wind. According to The Denver Post, it’s not unusual for the Colorado Front Range region (including the Denver area, and particularly the western suburbs) to experience winds of 100 miles per hour (or more) at times during the stormy seasons. Citing information from the Colorado State University Climate Center, the Post notes that, while often presented in the form of brief gusts, strong (and even severe) “down slope winds” are common when air [...]
Do Retractable Awnings Work? You bet they do! But you need a good product, professionally installed. A good retractable awning is designed to operate reliably to enhance the comfort and beauty of your outdoor space, whether at home, your office “break area,” or your restaurant’s outdoor dining space. Some of the best recent designs include weather-sensing technology which can close the awning during damaging wind storms, even if you’re away from home. And with the variety of awning products available today, you can have everything from a standard retractable deck awning, to a simple sun shade, to a retractable pergola cover, to a fully-enclosed outdoor “room.” Awnings also form an excellent investment. They add value to the property [...]
Best Awning installed an awning on my back patio last summer. We had just moved into our home and really could not enjoy sitting on the deck when the sun was out. I started a search for an economical way to fix the problem and found this company. It was so much less expensive than building a patio cover. From the very start they were professional, timely and very helpful and informative with the entire process. Now it is so nice to be able to sit outside in the heat of the summer and be comfortable. It was like we added another room on to the house! I highly recommend working with this company.
