Our Work


Working with CEI Awning was a real pleasure without any hassles. They were very professional and courteous, and very helpful in planning out my unique awning requirements due to the location and geometry of my deck. We love the awning over our deck and look forward to enjoying the days and evenings during the summer months. My wife commented that if we would have known how easy and how enjoyable this was over our existing deck, we would have done it years ago!!

It was a pleasure working with you for the replacement of our awning. The awning is beautiful. Thank you for your professionalism and reliability; also the installers for an efficient and outstanding job.

The CEI awning changed our sun blasted, brick patio into a shaded oasis that is my favorite “room” of the house. The crew from CEI is courteous and have been easy to work with for the many years that we have had our awning.

Our Job

We are a full-service manufacturer of permanent and seasonal fabric awnings starting with the design and ending with the installation of our products. We are capable of designing awnings for commercial and residential customers. CEI Awning also provides service and repair for fabric awnings as well. We also do some light industrial work for factories such as curtains and covers for equipment. Fabric digital format signs and banners round out the rest of our services.

We do not compromise quality in working with our customers. We are flexible to the needs of our customers and educate them as to the functions and benefits of canvas products. We make awnings for large corporations and our neighbors down the street.
