Southernly and Westernly facing patios and decks are the most common locations. If you have low-head room or a restricted mounting area, we have specially designed brackets allowing the entire unit to be safely mounted on the roof. Our awning professional can help you maximize the added living space from your new retractable awning.
When we visit your home they will be able to determine the best way to mount your awning. The most common mounts for awning installations are wall mounts, roof mounts, and under-overhang mounts. To make sure you are 100% satisﬁed, we will review and conﬁrm your choices to make sure you receive your new awning that meets and exceeds your expectations.
Each awning is custom made. 10ʼ is the most common distance, but larger and smaller models are available to meet your needs. The maximum pitch can be adjusted to 45 degrees.
Browse through our fabric sample books to make your selection. Our Sunbrella line of woven acrylic fabrics will give you hundreds of options. You can also choose from 6 different colors of the powder-coated ﬁnish on the arms and frames.
Every awning can withstand an average breeze without any problems. If the awning moves up and down more than 6” it should be retracted to protect the equipment. New technology allows motorized awnings to close automatically when it senses wind that might damage the unit.

If you have basic carpentry skills and knowledge of home construction, you can install the awning yourself. However there are some other important considerations before starting a do-it-yourself installation. Each awning weighs between 9lbs and 18lbs per foot of length. That means an average 18ʼ wide awning weighs between 160-320lbs. That is serious weight to be lifting 9ʼ to 11ʼ in the air. We encourage you to speak with our awning professional, and let him help guide you thru through the decision making process.
It all depends on what best ﬁts your needs, budget, and desired appearance. You are investing in shade and weather protection – while expanding your living area. Factors include how big a space you want to cover, fabric and mounting options, traditional style or enclosed cassette, and if you would like a motorized awning for convenience
Yes. We will proudly share them with you and encourage you to speak with our customers.
