Need awning advice pls

Cisak's picture

Does anyone know anything about fabric awnings? We went to a local source that uses Sunbrella fabric, and they said we'd have to roll it up if it rains because it "doesn't like water". Is there such a thing as a water-resistant/repellant awning that we could leave open in light rain? Our idea is to be able to sit out on the porch in all types of weather.

Hello Cisak,

I would go for a plastic material instead of fabric for your awning that you know will be waterproof. Check out your local fabric stores for some plastic that may be on sale and sew your own, or for a quick solution you can check out retailers like Canadian Tire:

Good luck!
