Custom Awning Fabric — Which Is Best For Your Application?
October 28, 2021
Dorchester Awning Company has been providing quality awnings for over a century. Since then, we’ve grown and diversified our offerings beyond simple fabric products to include: canopies, storefront awnings, large venue awnings, retractable awnings, pergola canopies, shade sails, retractable fabric roof systems, metal awnings, custom awning fabric, and more.
Our company has a tradition of 100 percent customer service, and our goal is to provide such good service that our customers consider us their awning company for life. We go above and beyond with our personalized design process, trusted vendors, and full service.
Fabric Styles and Colors
Awning fabric has come a long way over the years. Instead of just a few options for colors and patterns, we offer a rich variety of both colors and patterns available from our preferred fabric manufacturers. Our highly skilled stitching team is able to use those fabrics to customize and create any of our awnings and canopies with them.
For example, Sunbrella Fabrics offers over 100 choices of fabric colors and patterns. Tempotest produces a variety of shades that are treated with Teflon® Extreme for stain resistance, easy cleanability, and minimal maintenance. Sattler offers upholstery, shade fabric, and marine fabric in a wide range of colors and textures.
Today’s fabric choices allow for more opportunities to personalize your awnings and canopies than ever before. Our fabrics are designed to meet all of your shading needs, feature long-lasting design and UV, water, mold, and fading resistance, so your awnings and canopies will look great for years to come.
The Design Process
We create custom designs for each awning application. Our team of professional designers will walk you through the steps to create the perfect fit for you or your business. We take your specifications into consideration to ensure that you receive the best possible solution for your needs.
First, we’ll discuss your design requirements, understand your home or business’ personality, and discuss a price range. Next, we’ll show you samples of different awning and canopy styles, colors, and materials.
From there, we’ll review your home or building to determine which awning styles will work best. This can be achieved via a computer model that overlays canopies onto a photo of your home or business. For commercial applications, we can add graphics, and you’ll be able to approve the design before we begin creating your awning in our shop.
Once your awning and canopy are complete, our team of experienced installers will be by to install and make adjustments as needed. Since we are a full-service company, we can provide seasonal take-down, storage, and put-up services.
