Here in the UK we get more than our share of damp weather and an over door canopy can provide a level of protection which will make a big difference to a property.
Over door canopies can give some extra security to a property when a light is installed. It is very easy to fix a light on the underside of the canopy. This can be set up with a sensor so that the light comes on when anyone approaches the door. The canopy will also provide some shelter from the rain when you are looking through your handbag for the door key, or for guests when they are waiting on the doorstep for you to answer the door.
