Installing a stylish canvas awning is an easy way to transform the look of your outdoor space and make your patio or deck a more pleasant place to relax. Unlike other awning materials, canvas is unique in that it allows some sunlight to filter through, which means you’ll have plenty of shade on Waterford Township’s hottest days, but your space won’t be too dark.
There are countless canvas awning styles to choose from, so finding the best design for your home can be a daunting task. At Paul Construction, our team has more than 25 years of experience helping people transform their back yards, and we can use our extensive knowledge to help you find the perfect awning to complement your home.
We also install Sunesta Sentry retractable screens, Sunesta retractable awnings, the Sunesta Sunplus canopy, and stylish window and door awnings. Call 610-287-1623 today to get a free quote.
Water-Resistant vs. Waterproof Canvas Awnings: What’s the Difference?
There are numerous factors to consider when buying a canvas awning. Besides the color, design, and size, you should also consider the type of material used to create the awning.
Specifically, it is important that you find out whether the material is “water resistant” or “waterproof.” Water-resistant canvas has a special coating that protects it from water, but that coating fades over time, thus exposing the material to the elements and causing it to deteriorate.
Waterproof canvas, however, is actually composed of material that does not deteriorate when exposed to snow or water. This material tends to last much longer than cheaper water-resistant canvas. At Paul Construction, all of our canvas awnings are composed of waterproof materials.
Choosing the Right Color and Pattern for Your Home
Canvas awnings come in a variety of colors and patterns. If you’re not sure which style is right for your home, contact the pros at Paul Construction for advice. We will evaluate your outdoor environment and your home’s exterior to help you find the perfect fit.
If you have a wooded outdoor space with lush gardens, an earth-toned canvas may be ideal. But if your awning will cover a poolside deck, a brightly colored awning with a striped pattern may be a better fit.
