Canopies

Canopies are architectural features that provide overhead protection and cover to various outdoor areas, entrances, walkways, and spaces. They are typically composed of a roof-like structure, often supported by columns, beams, or brackets, and are designed to shield individuals or objects from weather elements such as rain, sun, and snow. Canopies come in various shapes, sizes, and materials, making them versatile additions to both residential and commercial settings. They serve multiple purposes, including enhancing aesthetics, improving comfort, and providing functional shelter.
