Get a jump on spring with winter awning installation

The patio furniture is packed away, but that hasn’t stopped you from thinking about your outdoor oasis. While some exterior updates will have to wait until spring, adding a retractable awning to your patio deck or boathouse isn’t one of them.

“The beauty of retractable awnings is they can be installed year-round,” says Aquadome’s sales and marketing coordinator, Carly Caines. “You may not be using your patio for the next several months, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have your awning installed now.”

While it’s not advised to leave an awning extended during the snowy months, having it installed in the fall will mean you can use it as soon as spring comes, maximizing the time you get to enjoy your outdoor space.

Unlike big box stores that only carry awnings in standard colours and sizes, Aquadome’s awnings are custom tailored to each home, cottage, and business. They can be customized for specific needs – whether you want to obscure glaring sun, keep slippery pathways dry, or keep tree droppings off your patio furniture.

“We will measure the exact size during an onsite consultation. You can see and feel the durable fabric options and compare swatches to your patio cushions and accents to ensure your awning will complement your decor.”

As a supplier of Rolltec Awnings, a Canadian industry leader based in the GTA, Aquadome has access to a seemingly endless supply of fabric and frame combinations.

“We have hundreds of colours and patterns to pair perfectly with your style and decor,” says Carly. “We offer frames in black, white, ivory, and beige, which can be paired with any World of Excellence or Sunbrella fabric to match your colour scheme and theme.”

While solid-coloured fabrics have always been a popular choice for awnings, patterns have been gaining popularity over the past few years. “One look I love is the use of stripes to create a nautical or Mediterranean look,” says Carly.

You can customize how you operate the awning, opening and retracting it by crank, remote control, or paired with your smart home system. It can even be equipped with a worry-free wind sensor that will automatically close the awning when it senses powerful winds.

“Give us a call to discuss all the options and find the one that’s right for you.”

Demand still high, but buyers taking their time

Tried and true collection makes an architectural statement

Revamping your style isn’t always about looking forward. Sometimes, it’s a matter of reaching into the past. After all, as the saying goes, “the
