Are your fabric awnings falling apart? Is the thread on your seams or binding rotting in the harsh Florida sun?

Acrylic (canvas) fabrics by Sunbrella and Sattler are better than ever before, now offering warranties up to 10 years. We have over 300 colors and styles to choose from.

Ask us about our thread that is guaranteed to outlive the life of your canvas or vinyl fabric.

Rick gets all the credit for this one. After hours of measuring this complex install, it fit just right. Amelie's Bakery in the Hyde Park area of Tampa, FL was the recipient of our latest masterpiece. The complex notches on the wall along with the existing railing we had to follow for the front edge of the awning made this install a challenge. The several puzzle pieces that made up this awning were covered with black Patio 500 vinyl fabric. The frame was left to resemble mill aluminum for an industrial look. All the different angles provide some artistic geometry to the appearance of the top plane of the awning. This outdoor seating area will be great for snacking on some baked goods and people watching in downtown Hyde Park.
Looking for a way to spruce up the exterior of your home? Have existing awnings that have seen better days? Nothing will set your home apart from the rest like recovering your existing canopy frames. Recently, we had the opportunity to recover 16 awnings of varying shapes and sizes for a customer in St. Petersburg. The spanish/mesa style of the home looked great with the dome awnings and choice of scallop. The customer and their salesman really knocked this one out of the park.
Awnings can add a splash of color to dull exterior, or be made to blend in with your current home decor. Our Sunbrella and Sattler fabrics come with a 10 year warranty, and the Tenara thread we use is warranted for the life of the fabric. Be sure you ask about the thread and fabric other awning companies are using because odds are they are not using the best. Whether your recovers are big or small, we would be happy to help get you the best awnings on the market.
A little while back we were privileged to work with the folks at All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg, FL. They had two separate projects for us to tackle. The first of which was quite unique. They needed to provide rain and sun protection for a mobile MRI the hospital often employs. This mobile MRI is housed in a full size semi-truck with a ramp and stairs transporting the children to and from the truck. The challenge for us was to maintain clearance for the ramp all the while still providing adequate coverage from the elements. We decided to go with a radius marquee style awning for a little bit of architectural style. It really came out nice if I do say so myself.

The second project was a covered walkway for the employee entrance. Again, we went with a radius marquee style for the walkway. This time with a tighter radius to fit the sidewalk. The blue vinyl fabric was a good backdrop for the custom graphics of the All Children's logo.
It is always nice to know that we are helping others, especially children in need in this case, with the products we fabricate.
