What's the difference between a shed and an awning.
What are noticeable differences between a shed and an awning. First we notice that the shed is enclosed while the awning is not. The awning is used for parties or as a patio entertainment area. While the shed is used strictly for storage. I had a customer that had an awning that he was using as a shed, to store things. So when Allstate went to cover the back of the shed, it wasn't approved, so I said, "this looks more like an awning, if you can get rid of all the stuff in the back of the "shed" then you should be fine to get this covered as an awning." Allstate so far is approving it since it does in fact look more like an awning since it's wide open. So if he takes all this debris and washer and dryers out and puts a kitchen they might be able to get this approved as an awning rather than a shed. It's very interesting to be an insurance agent for Allstate, I have learned so much.
