What happens when the wind picks up and my awning is extended?

If you live in Saskatchewan, you know what it is like to go from no wind to 50km gusts in an instant.  In order to cope with this, we have 3 different options:

1.  Manual/Motorized Retraction – simply put, you would need to go out and retract your awning to prevent any damage.

2.  Hold Down Poles – these are poles that fasten the outside edge of the awning front to a location on your deck, stabilizing your deck awning against strong winds.

3.  Wind Sensor – upgrade your motorized awning with a sensor mounted on the outside edge that automatically retracts your porch awning in strong winds.  

What is the minimum spacing that you need between the top of a window and the soffits in order to wall mount?

A minimum of 12″ is typically sufficient for most awning types but that can change to as much as 16″. For tighter spaces, it is a case-by-case situation. Call us today, and we’ll advise you on what we need to know to give you a good answer.

Can I add a motor later if I decide I want one?

We advise deciding to add a motor prior to ordering your awning. To retrofit one, your awning must be uninstalled, returned to the supplier to have the motor added, and then re-installed. This process is time-consuming, costly, and inconvenient.
