Retractable Awning Fabric Covers

When shopping for new fabric for your retractable awning, the price range on fabrics can be significantly different. Some retractable awning replacement covers are even half the price of others! The cheaper price is not always the best value when considering how long your new cover will last and how colorfast it will be to keep it looking new through the years.

Confused on what is the best value?

Here’s a comparison of fabrics to help you decide and check out Southern Living’s Outdoor Fabrics article for more information.

      Hi- They are both solution dyed acrylic fabrics with a 10 year warranty. The brands are different and we limit the Solar Pro to 5 solid colors to keep cost low. They are both the same quality. – Sandy

We had a great... experience with PYC Awnings. We ordered roll up clear plastic curtains for our screened in porch. We were nervous about dealing strictly through emails and phone, but Sandy relieved our fears and was very professional and helpful. We sent measurements and pictures and , within the specified time, our shades were delivered. The order came with all the parts and directions. The set up was easier than expected and the fit was near perfect. We would highly recommend this company!read more
