FAQ – AWNINGS AND SOLAR SHADES

We have been in business since 1985.

All products presented here are offered online since they are easy to install. Our price does not include installation and we supply a detailed installation manual to expand on all potential queries you may have. It is recommended to use a carpenter or helper if you are installing on your own. If you need a professional installer, we can help you identify such a contractor. If you reside in Quebec, we can offer this service.

We offer a practical measuring guide to take dimensions required for the width and extension of your awning or your solar shade. If you have difficulty with certain details, call our customer service at 1 (866) 446-4182.

The price of your awning or solar shade includes delivery to your house, however the service is curbside and the driver cannot bring the product in your house.

Your awning will be delivered in approximately 3-5 weeks. The freight company delivering your awning will call you or e-mail you in advance to schedule a convenient time for delivery to your home. The driver will generally place the awning in your driveway or next to your home, if that is accessible.

In most cases, there will be no need to install an electrical outlet to plug your awning or solar shade. All these products work with normal 110 volts outlets, which are installed to building code. It is highly recommended these outlets be GFI compatible. All our products have plug-in wires ranging from 15 to 24 feet.

Your awning extends out to tree potential lengths from the house, but can be partially opened at any position.

If you have a traditional awning, just close it and leave it on your home all winter long. Our fabric has been designed to withstand the weather year round.  If your awning is not protected by an overhang, we recommend protecting it with a soft cover.

The Brasilia Slim product can be left closed all winter. Our fabric has been designed to withstand the weather year round. The casing offers a maximum protection year round.

Your Multiple Shade product should be closed all winter. Leave the casing into place through out the winter.

The actual pitch of the awning is set at the factory to a slope of 18″. During your installation, you can readjust the pitch of the awning with a few simple steps if desired. Please review the installation manual for the procedure.

Your awning will keep your deck or patio cooler, the temperature difference can reach 11 C degrees. It will also prevent the sun from shining through your doors and windows, which will lower your need for air conditioning and protect your furniture and flooring from harmful UV rays.

Your awning is designed to protect you while you are enjoying the outdoors. You should retract it when not in use. Because your awning retracts, it will be great as a solution and an alternative versus a permanent awning. It is not recommended to leave it open under high winds. And for greater safety, order a wind sensor, which protects your investment under weather stress.

Your Multiple Shade blocks 95% of the sun while allowing a soft light, keeping you and your home cooler. In addition, it helps keeping harmful UV rays from your furniture and flooring, increasing their lifetime.

Your Brasilia awning or Multiple Shade are designed to be virtually maintenance free. Periodic cleaning of the fabric will help extend the life of the fabric and prevent formation of mildew. The awning frame is painted with durable powder-coated paint for long lasting beauty. A bottle of touch up paint is included in case the awning frame gets a scratch during installation.
