hether it was using a tree or a tarp fashioned from straw, the awning, in even it’s most primitive form has been protecting man from the harmful rays of the sun for literally thousands of years. From marketplaces to palaces to even protecting the livestock, the awning was not only fashionable (Cleopatra demanded hers be made of silk), but also very functional.
Wow! Push a button and I’ve got a summer room. We love our awning!
Technology has advanced significantly since those early days of wooden poles and straw mats to extruded aluminum, acrylic and kevlar. While the concept of using awnings for protection is nothing new, how we achieve it today is a very modern necessity. Fabric awnings, up until 20 years ago had a lifespan of maybe 5 years (with special care), today by using acrylic our customers average fabric lifespan is 15-20 years! With a 10 year warranty covering rot, mildew fading and water repellency, adding an awning to your home is not only stylish, but also a sound investment.
