If you live in an area where sunshine is abundant - like Southern California - then you might be worried about things like your awning fabrics’ ability to withstand the sun’s harsh UV rays or color degradation. But, if you use a high quality awning fabric you don’t have to worry about either of these problems. For designers and architects, this means you have more time to focus on the aesthetic of your project without worrying as much about meeting deadlines and budgets. For business and homeowners, this means that your awning is a money saving shade structure that will help reduce your energy costs

Awning textiles come in a variety of colors and styles as well as fabric options. Choosing the right fabric supplier will help ensure your awning project doesn’t get derailed by changing weather patterns. Your fabric will hold up in the rain or sunshine, wind, or snow. Remember, finding the right outdoor awning fabric supplier for your next project involves doing your due diligence. First, consider what your project needs.

  • What kind of fabric do you want?
  • Are you looking for color options?
  • What kind of features do you want? Waterproofing, mold and mildew resistance, etc.

Remember, the textile you use should last and come with a warranty. After all, you don’t want your client to call you in a year complaining that the awning project you designed and had installed is falling apart.

Changing weather patterns shouldn’t stop businesses or restaurants from installing an outdoor awning. You can combine your awning with drop screens or shades to provide an enclosed, yet comfortable ambience for your guests or diners. For example, outdoor dining areas can be accentuated with drop shades or curtains that are attached to your awning project.  You have multiple options when it comes to upgrading or extending your outdoor awning’s coverage capabilities; you’re only limited by your creativity.

Awning fabrics are made for the outdoors and can stand the test of time, and the rigors of the elemental forces - rain, wind, sunshine. A high quality awning fabric is also mold, stain and mildew resistant, and should come with a good warranty.

You rely on your awning for protection from the elements and aesthetic purposes, but damaging effects of Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter weather can wreak havoc on your investment. Download our free guide to learn more about keeping your awning intact, all year long.
