At Northwest Awning and Sign, we’re dedicated to bringing Portland area businesses the best in high-quality commercial awnings. We started in a small shop just when the illuminated awning boom started and have since prided ourselves in offering the latest products and installation techniques our industry has to offer.
We regularly attend industry seminars, trade shows and other business development events in order to stay on top of covering technologies, advancements in architecture, and municipal regulations.
All of our structures are created by hand in our Portland, Oregon workshop by a select group of dedicated and skilled workers. We are licensed, insured and bonded in Oregon and Washington.

We construct all of our awnings, umbrellas, free standing shelters and other similar structures at our state-of-the-art workshop in North Portland. Our hand-picked staff of skilled professionals take pride in their detail-oriented craftsmanship.
The majority of our frames are constructed from steel or aluminum, depending on the project’s engineering requirements. Once completed, our frames can be painted, galvanized or powder coated. We work closely with engineers and architects to make sure all of our frames are welded in compliance to the most specific requirements. All of our frames are guaranteed for twenty years.
Our frames can be covered with metal, vinyl or a variety of fabrics. You can count on Northwest Awning to offer excellent advice and consulting on all the covering options for your project including the latest advancements in fabric technologies.
All of our creations are installed by highly-skilled professionals and include transportation to the site and unloading. Our careful, well supervised installation process assures you of a perfect finish to your project and a look you can be proud of. We offer a variety of fastening solutions to mount our awnings to any structure. If it is necessary for a city inspector to sign off on the completed project’s installation, we will coordinate the inspection. All of our awning installations are guaranteed for twenty years.
