There’s price and there’s quality. We sell quality.” So said Russell Hendrickson, owner of Northern Awning & Window Company (NAWCO) in an interview that appeared in the April 4, 1968, edition of The Marquette Mirror. It is safe to say the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Forty-seven years later, NAWCO is still known for its quality materials, workmanship and service. While we are in the same familiar location on West Washington Street in Marquette, there is now a new generation of Hendrickson’s carrying on the family tradition of quality.

“We’ve truly integrated ourselves into the local community, being the longest-tenured home-improvement business in the area,” said Russell’s son, Peter, who, with his sister Anna, runs the business their father started 57 years ago.

Peter is as direct and plain-spoken as his dad. “We sell quality materials and bring value to each and every project,” he re-affirmed. “And we guarantee your satisfaction or your money back.” As a philosophy for doing business, it doesn’t get much simpler than that. “Northern Awning & Window sells, installs and repairs anything exterior,” explained Anna. “We use great products, like our own locally-owned and -operated SuperiorLand Vinyl Windows, Kolbe and Kolbe wood windows, Certainteed, Wolverine, Mastic and Norandex sidings, GAF Shingles, and Duro-last Flat commercial or residential roofing.”

Northern Awning serves the entire U.P. conveniently from our Marquette office. You’ll find instances of our work just about everywhere you go because quality lasts. Many of the products installed by Russell during the company’s early years are still in use today. “We respect the fact your most important investment is your home, so in the challenging economy we find ourselves, it is important to invest wisely. Northern Awning and Window keeps your home or business looking great and maintains its value,” says Peter. Combining quality materials, workmanship and service is a tradition with the Hendrickson’s; one that Peter and Anna grew up with and one they proudly continue. Their dad would not have had it any other way.

When appearance, energy efficiency and return on your biggest investment are important, turn to the leaders in quality products, great service, and cost-effective solutions; Northern Awning and Window Company. Stop by our office and we will gladly assist you with your home-improvement questions and needs. We are conveniently located at 1221 West Washington Street, across from Shopko in Marquette.


We can help you with any snow load or ice damn issues your roof may have. We will first fix the immediate hazards and then look at the cause of the problems. A well designed and built roof can withstand typical snow loads. If ice damming is an issue, we normally find an insulation problem as the primary cause. Set up a FREE quote today.

“We love our windows from Northern Awning & Window! Each one was custom measured and made to fit perfectly. They even helped us customize the design to fit the era in which our house was built. The windows tilt inward to clean so easily; we also like the UV protective coating on the glass which helps protect flooring and furnishings. This old home has never been so warm in winter due to the energy efficiency of our new windows. Northern Awning’s service was quick and efficient. We have extensively remodeled our old home, and our windows continue to be our favorite part!”
Bud & Lorilie H.

“Recently the locking mechanism on my front door failed. I took at crack at fixing it but eventually I admitted I needed an expert. NAW to the rescue. Pete and one of his crack installers nicknamed ‘Gadget’ showed up lickety split and made the door new again. These guys are good. Many thanks for a job well done!”
David S.

“Teaching Family Homes of Upper Michigan has worked with Northern Awning for over ten years. They were instrumental in helping with the renovations of the old Prison Honor Camp by replacing the roofs and windows as well as wall insulation throughout. This allowed us to save a building built in 1938 and boarded up for 65 years, making it a beautiful center for abused and neglected children to learn and grow.”
– Chris M., CEO. Teaching Family Homes of Upper Michigan

“Our experience with Northern Awning & Window Company has been excellent over the past two and half years. They replaced our patio door, installed seamless gutters and an interior garage door on our home, and installed an interior door at my place of business. Their knowledge, work experience, service, and staff are outstanding and was our first choice. I would strongly recommend our friends and family to call Northern Awning & Window Company for any exterior work on their home or business.”
– Kathy & Jim L.

“For improvements or enhancements to the exterior of our home, we look to Northern Awning & Window. They are a locally owned business that keeps the customer’s needs at the forefront. They have done exceptional work at our home. They are detail oriented and have been very good about communicating the progress of the work with us. We look to draw on their expertise time & time again.”
– Jeff & Jennifer D.

“We needed a few panels of siding replaced but were discouraged to find out the line had been discontinued. The staff at Northern Awning spent a lot of work trying to match the color and style of the siding, and thankfully, they found a perfect match. If they weren’t able to match it then we would’ve had to replace all the siding on the house, but I was able to spend that on some fantastic new windows. Thanks again.”
– Richard & Sherry D.

” After a severe hail storm I hired Northern Awning and Window to put on a new roof on my home. I was so pleased I hired them to also replace the roof on my camp. Affordable, timely, friendly and experienced….these are the words I associate with Northern Awning and Window. I would not hesitate to hire them again!”
– Dan B.

“We are very pleased with our windows. I was expecting a lot of dust and debris, but that was not the case at all. Your workers were very pleasant and efficient and respected my property as I hoped they would. I look forward to using Northern Awning & Window again in the future!”
– Don & Marilyn S.

“We couldn’t believe how fast it was done. Actually, the kids asked us when the gutters were installed & we didn’t even notice. There was absolutely nothing left around to even tell us you were here to install. The service was great. Great job in a very short time!”
