Jules (a homeowner in Euclid Ohio) had an old wood awning made of pine that was rotting and deteriorating. The structure was pulling away from the house which caused water, sun and rain to be able to seep through. The asphalt shingles on the roof were also failing. The bottom line is the decorative and protective home awning did not look good and was not doing the job.
Jules wanted a wood awning that would not only function well with a minimum amount of maintenance – but also one that would add to the architectural appearance of his cottage home style (and would match up with the wood scallop design used in parts of the home’s woodwork). Jules was turned down by several contractors who did not want to do this type of custom millwork.
