For over 40 years, Dittmer Architectural Aluminum (DAA) has led the way in developing and manufacturing extruded aluminum awnings, canopies and decks. Working hand in hand with architects and general contractors, we design our products to meet the architectural intent for major construction projects. Through three generations of family direction, DAA has earned a reputation for innovative custom design and manufacturing of the highest quality of workmanship. Every project includes signed and sealed structural calculations and drawings, and our factory-trained installers combine many years of experience with clear-cut procedures to assure precise installation.

Our exceptional engineering capabilities allow us to deliver durable aluminum walkway solutions that enhance institutional architecture, while providing maintenance-free, internal drainage that avoids the clutter of external drains. Few companies can deliver the design assistance and engineering confirmation we provide to help you achieve your project objectives. We have satisfied customers throughout the world with over 4,000 Ditt-Deck, Ditt-Dome and Ditt-Shade completed projects for hospitals, air terminals, hotels, schools, retail, commercial and government offices. We look forward to making your visions a reality.
