Owasso Gardens is a new 60-unit apartment complex in Roseville providing independent and affordable living for those 55+. Owasso Gardens is part of the CommonBond Community, an affordable housing nonprofit that works to build thriving communities in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa.
Acme Awning was brought in to provide the metal hanging rod canopies over the entryways. Hanging rod canopies, also called commercial metal canopies, provide excellent water management through a system of gutters and diverters. They are a fantastic way to protect busy entrances from moisture and ice. The hanging rods and structural elements of the canopy also mean there is a high snow load capacity — rather important here in Minnesota.
The canopies are not only effective, but are long lasting (35+ years) and require little maintenance. The metal is powder coat painted, adding both a protective layer and a stylish finish to the canopy. As the below photos show, the finished product has a pleasant, streamlined and modern appearance, and is a nice addition to the front of the building. If you are looking to revamp the outside of your building, or are in the planning phases of a new project, Acme Awning would be happy to work with you to find the right solution for your needs.
