The use of awnings, both residential and commercial, can be traced back to the 1800's. Style and Fabric choice were limited back then. Today, your awning options are virtually endless, particularly your awning fabric choices which include Sattler, Sunbrella & Recacril.
Awning fabrics today are primarily acrylic and many now include UV protection. These fabrics can be put on stationary canopies, square frames, domes, patio canopies, drop curtains and retractable awnings.
