Default Any Awning People Here?

We have a brick patio that is about 25 x 35 and it gets hot as hell in the summer. We find ourselves not being able to use it in the heat of the day. I want to cover about half of it. Got a price on building a regular stick built roof with shingles but was wondering how much an awning would be as a comparison.

I don't want the fold out awnings you see advertised on TV but rather a commercial grade awning that will last for a while. Anybody here in the business or deal with commercial awnings that could tell me the pros and cons, life of the canvas, wind loads, etc?

Thanks in advance.
