After you have selected your awning or shade, the next step is fabric selection. We offer fabrics from Sunbrella and Statler. There are hundreds of different fabric choices. All are 100% acrylic material and water-resistant. The fabrics we install are warranted against sun spotting and sun fading.

Look for fabrics that complement the architectural style of your home or business. Traditional architecture often works best with traditional colors such as forest green, neutrals or navy. Stripes are a good choice for colonials and cottage-style homes. Beige, salmon, or terra-cotta solids and stripes work well with Southwestern-style and stucco-sided buildings. View all fabrics here.
Contemporary Homes- consider using bright color or unanticipated contrast.
Edging-Scalloped valances are a good choice for traditional homes and shops.
Modern Homes – Keep the awning design simple and the fabric solid on homes with multiple angled rooflines or architectural elements.
Pick patterns that are proportional to the size of your structure and your awning. Small stripes may look busy on a large expanse of fabric, while wide-striped fabrics can overwhelm a small ranch-style home.
If heat reduction is a motivation for your awning purchase, choose dark colors to reflect direct sunlight. Awnings will keep the sun from heating the windows in your home and causing you to turn on your air conditioner.
