When the beautiful weather on the East End gets a little too hot this summer, an awning can be the perfect remedy. Instead of retreating to an air-conditioned house, spend more time outdoors under the shade of an expertly installed awning. For helping East Enders stay cool—and protected from skin-damaging intense afternoon UV rays—these awning companies have been awarded the title Dan’s Best of the Best.
