Stepdown Aluminum Awnings

Stepdown Aluminum awnings are a part of Baltimore’s DNA.

They can be found in one neighborhood after another, sometimes on every home of a block.
We have seen a revival of the stepdown aluminum awning in Baltimore and also a crossover to Commercial applications. Seeing a need in the market for the growing resurgence in the stepdown aluminum awning market, A. Hoffman Awning began a new division manufacturing these awnings. 

All of our Hoffman-manufactured Aluminum Awnings are precision-fabricated with low-maintenance materials. They are a solid investment you will appreciate for many years and they come in a variety of colors and materials.

  • Awnings on your windows keep your home or business cooler.

  • Awnings over your doors protect you and your visitors from the elements and keep your entryway dry.

  • Metal awnings are extremely durable. No need to take down in the winter.

  • Protection from the elements. Our Aluminum & Metal awnings are built to the latest wind and snow loads.

  • We can integrate a gutter system on your awning to control and divert rainwater away from your home.

Our Patent-Pending Concealed Fastener System

No More Ugly Screws! Traditional Stepdown Aluminum Awnings have long been manufactured with an assembly process resulting in hundreds of exposed fasteners.

A. Hoffman Awning designed a patent-pending application that conceals the majority of fasteners. The result is a seamless look that produces a more aesthetic awning product and has the added benefit of protecting the fasteners from the elements, thus giving your awning a longer life.

Standing Seam Metal Awnings

Standing Seam awnings are typically used in a commercial environment. They are modern, architectural and built to last.

These metal awnings come in a variety of panel shapes. Traditional Standing Seam panels called Pac-Clad are probably the most common.

Snap-Clad panels feature architectural aesthetics as well as structural performance. Snap-Clad panels, produced in continuous lengths, are leveled to provide superior flatness and feature an optional factory-applied sealant bead for improved weather resistance.

Snap-Clad panels feature a 1-3/4” leg height and a continuous interlock for improved structural performance and wind resistance. A concealed-fastener clip system allows for thermal expansion/contraction while providing extraordinary hold-down strength.

Typical Standing Seam Awning
Other standing seam options include R-36, M-42 and corrugated. These come in a variety of colors.


Despite being used more often in commercial environments, a standing seam awning can also look great on your home.

We offer renderings where we can show you how the awning will look on your home or business before you commit to a style. Ask your salesperson today.

Flat Pan Awnings

More architectural in look than a typical aluminum porch awning, Flat Pans offer a robust extension to your roofline. 

These awnings have a built-in gutter system which drains water away from your home. They also are extremely sturdy and are designed to withstand snow loads. 

Flat Pan Awning Features:

  • Internal gutter system to transport and dispose of water quickly and efficiently
  • Chosen for durability and load strength
  • Roll-formed aluminum
  • Great for carports, walkway covers, patio covers
  • Overhead arms or posts
