About Us

Our company began as a family business. We are three generations of leadership. We sold aluminum awnings, carports and patio covers which were manufactured at the Harold Wolfe Company location in Ohio. We soon discovered that fabric awnings and patio covers would be a wise addition to our product line-up, and we began manufacturing and installing them in metro Atlanta and surrounding areas.

In 1987, the Harold Wolfe Company built the 16,000 square foot building in Smyrna, GA, that it currently occupies. In the same year, we purchased machinery for slitting painted aluminum coil into customized widths and began distributing that coil to other manufacturers.

Soon, we started looking for further ways to expand the business. Dry Under Decks seemed like a perfect fit for a manufacturer of aluminum products. The Dry Under Deck System is a way for the homeowner to utilize existing, unusable wet space under their decks. After studying other systems in the marketplace, we determined that panel locks and water-removal systems were the weakest components of other systems. Our roll-forming machines make Dry Under Decks panels and a uniquely designed modular gutter/support system that surpass all other systems on the market in quality and function. We have the strongest Stay-‘n-Place lock on the market. Our system is strong enough to carry up to a 20-pound load per square foot. It has an industry-breakthrough scratch resistant paint overall.

And as we move forward with the new name of Designer Awnings and Canopies, we will still continue to provide our customers with a top-of-the line, quality product. We have a reputation for producing excellent products and for achieving a high level of customer satisfaction. Our goal is to continue to be a leader in the aluminum and fabric home products industry.
