About American Awning and Canvas

About the Owner

My name is Joe Lanza and my family has been in the awning and tarpaulin business for nearly 70 years. American Awning and Canvas is a 3rd generation business with our roots in Cleveland. In 1945, my great uncle Gino Mileti founded American Tarpaulin & Padding to serve the trucking, military and furniture padding markets. My father Frank Lanza headed the company for many years and expanded our reach into new markets. When I took over the day-to-day operations of the company in the 1980s, I renamed it American Awning and Canvas to better reflect our focus on awnings for commercial and residential customers as well as custom covers for the marine market.

Why Choose American Awning and Canvas?

Highest Quality Fabrics

We use only the highest quality fabrics for long-lasting performance. We are an authorized representative of Sunbrella, a leading fabric for today’s awnings and marine covers. This pigmented acrylic offers the rich look and feel of cotton but will not fade or degrade even in the brightest sun. We also offer high-tech composite textiles from Serge Ferrari, flame retardant vinyl coated polyesters with superior stability and exceptional resistance to dirt and UV rays.

Quality Fabrication

All of our awning frames are custom fabricated from 1″ and thicker square, heavy-gauge aluminum, unlike many of our competitors who cut corners with sub-standard materials such as conduit. At American Awning and Canvas, the best awnings start with a solid foundation for years of service.
