Zero net houses are the new thing here in Palm Springs. A zero net house is one that has a net energy use of zero. Balanced by a super energy-efficient design, solar power, and of course, louvered patio covers.

Equinox Louvered Roof Systems are a quick way to make your home more energy efficient. Pictured at left is a pool area louvered roof that in the hot desert summer months makes this patio a quality living space.

Atlas Awning will be open all summer. Please call us to set up an appointment for a free estimate. 760-327-8466.

100° In Palm Springs This Weekend!

Hey it's going to get hot here, like right now. A perfect time for me to write about our great service.

Lattice Patio Cover by Atlas Awning
Do you have a patio that is not covered or you are using a couple of patio umbrellas for shade? If the answer is yes to either of those questions, then I have a challenge for you.

My challenge is stop by our shop here in Palm Springs and let me show you how we can turn your patio a place you will enjoy for years to come. It is that we specialize in patio covers, not the canvas kind as our name, Atlas Awning, suggests, but the permanent kind. The kind that have a solid roof or louvers that open and close on command.

If you are interested in quality workmanship and dependability we are the patio cover shop for you.

Choosing The Right Patio Cover Contractor

The Coachella Valley is growing, no doubt about it. During this past season it was very hard to keep up with all of the scheduled events. Film festivals to music festivals, we sure know how to 'fill the seats'.

Our shop, Atlas Awning, has been in Palm Springs since 1972. We were here when there were no festivals. I know it's hard to imagine, but it's true, we've been here for 41 years.

Experience counts when choosing a Patio Cover Contractor. You have to look at several factors to make sure you are choosing the right contractor

Here is a short list:

  1. How long has the. contractor been in business?

  3. Are they insured?
  4. Do the has current testimonials?
These 3 factors will get you started toward choosing the right contractor that has the ability to finished your job and build a patio cover solution that will last.

We have a printable contractor checklist that you can download for free. Use this checklist, it will be a valuable tool in your search for a Patio Cover Contractor that will meet or exceed your needs.

Bahama Exterior Shutters

Atlas Awning specializes in adding value to your home. One of the most important features of your home is the windows and window treatments. We can make those old open windows look like new with our Bahama Exterior Shutters.

Let me explain the benefits of these beautiful shutters.

  • They are a unique option to traditional awnings and shutters offering protection from the elements without blocking the beautiful view.
  • Powder coated finish built from all aluminum and professionally installed with stainless steel hardware.
  • Unwanted heat enters mostly through windows working like a magnifying glass. Bahama Exterior Shutters STOP the sun's heat rays from reaching the glass, effectively blocking 85% of the sun's heating ability.
