Sidewalk Cover Awning Measuring Guide

This guide is recommended for customers who wish to provide cover for their side walk.

Step 1: Begin by measuring the total length of the sidewalk.

Step 2: Determine the height where the awning will be installed.

  • Check for any objects that could get in the way of the installation. For example, keystone, roof, security cameras, etc.
  • We do not recommend installing the awning below 7 feet as the end of the awning will end up being 6 feet or lower, which may cause people to run into the awning.

Step 3: Decide on the model to be used to cover the door or window.

  • Please mind the property line. If the awning results in snow/rain accumulating on the neighbour’s property, the neighbour may request to remove the awning.
  • PC3 (38″) and PC4 (48″) models are recommended for sidewalk cover.
  • PC5 (59″) is recommend if the awning needs to be installed above 8ft.

Step 4: Order the awning via our Shop page or by filling out the Contact Us page if you require the installation service.

  • Select the model of the awning based on your results from Step 3.
  • Choose the colour of the bracket and the panel
    • Determine the bracket colour to either match the colour of the wall or the railing
    • Determine the panel colour to either maximize (clear) or limit (tinted brown) the amount of sunlight
  • Type in the length determined in Step 1.
