If you choose to install an awning, you’ll increase the value of your home and provide shelter when you enter your home. Not only are they very functional, they are easy to install, as mentioned in the video. Learn how to install them so you can enjoy overhead covers outside your door.
Create a Block to Accommodate for Siding
If you have siding, you won’t have a flat surface to work with when affixing your awning brace. You can make a block that matches the grooves of the siding, or you can buy them pre-cut to fit.
Cut to Fit
Trace the shape of the siding on the awning template to ensure there’s a good fit. You can cut off any excess as needed. Once the shape is cut, cleaned, and sanded, you’re ready to attack the screws to fasten everything together. Be sure to bore holes in the anchor block to affix to the building.
Install Base and Seal
Once you screw the base to the building, be sure to carefully seal it in place with all-weather adhesive. Once the installation is complete, you can begin setting up the awning.
Set Up Your Awning
Once you insert the braces for the awning according to the directions, you can add the actual awning cover. The installation is usually straightforward and only takes a few minutes.
