Frequently asked questions
During the busy season in late spring through early fall, we can be as far out as six weeks. The other times of year, we tend to run closer to three weeks.
Small awnings do fine, but you’ll want to make sure they’re retracted when you don’t need them to avoid risk. For larger shades, while not required, we always recommend adding a motor with a wind sensor. It will judge how your awning is handling gusts and automatically retract if needed.
We usually replace fabrics at 20 years with decent care. Based on what cover it has and how you’ve used it, it could last much less or more than that average.
The crank uses a poll with offset handles so you can rotate it easily. That pole comes in custom colors, lengths, and is completely removable, so no need to worry about it being and eye sore.
3-20 year warranty on metal, moving parts, and joints depending on style of awning. 5 year for fabric. 5 year for motor or crank drive.
