From the Forum: Installing an Awning Over the Front Door

    A homeowner is debating about installing an awning over the front door, but is wondering what option might be best. There’s a nice brick arch above the stoop entrance door so were thinking of a domed canvas awning or a glass awning to keep the arch somewhat visible. What are the awning pros and cons?

    Please chime in with your advice.
