Permanet Awnings keep the rain away

Permanent Awnings

Add a touch of elegance to your home or business’s windows and entryways while enhancing privacy and blocking out the harsh rays of the sun with a permanent awning installation.

Awning Installation Services

Whether you’re looking for a retractable awning to cover your porch or patio, or a permanent solution to mount above windows and entryways, we’ve got you covered. Our Sunesta brand awnings come in 134 different fabric designs and a wide range of customizations to fit any aesthetic.

Window Tinting Services

Window films allow you to enjoy your view without wilting in the heat. We have options that are so clear you’ll barely know they’re there, as well as commercial options with deeply smoked, mirrored, or opaque finishes. Regardless of which you choose, our expert installers have 75+ combined years of experience installing window films.

Decorative Window Film

With decorative window films your imagination is the limit of what’s possible. Frosted glass is the classic example – but you can turn your shower doors into a jungle scene, or your business’s front windows into a huge opportunity for branding.

Roller Shades

Don’t let the sun chase you out of your living spaces. We have roller shades for both indoor and outdoor applications which can block 65% of the heat and 100% of the glare! Even in the middle of a hot South Carolina summer day you’ll be able to relax in cool shade. Roller shades don’t stop working when the sun goes down either – screening your private life from unwanted attention.

Local Expertise

We’re based out of Columbia, SC and have been in business for 42 years. Over the decades we’ve worked with happy customers all across the state, and have made hundreds of thousands of measurements. We take the guesswork out of measurements and all of our installations are performed by our own expert craftsman – not sub-contracted out!

We Only Use Top Quality Brands

Low quality products deliver low quality results, and that just isn’t something we’re OK with. We install Sunesta awnings and shades and LLumar window films because we know that they make great products at a fair price and will provide results you’ll be happy with.
