    We have a few late 19th/early 20th century commercial buildings with old rollout awning housings. The local awning company has indicated that they do not have a supplier for rollout awnings that are inset into the building. The new ones they indicate are mounted to the surface of the building. Does anyone know of a supplier of rollout awnings that are mounted into the the shopfront or a renovator of older housings. I think in this case the former is a more preferred path.

    Hi Elizabeth.

    I'm going through some of the older posts that didn't get a response and I wonder if this is something my colleagues over at Main Street America could help answer. I don't know if you still are looking for suggestions though.

    Thank you Priya for following up! In lieu of any other information, the owner is removing it. Interesting that no one has experienced this as an issue.
