Weather-Proof-Your-PorchStep Five- Where to Mount Top of Curtain 

Return to Porch Protection Curtain Page

5. Decide where you will mount the top of the headrod clamp.

*Tip- If you mount on the inside of your porch, mount the top of the headrod clamp 8″ or more up on the header, when curtain is rolled up it will be hidden from the outside view.

Step Six – Tie down Options

6. Tie-downs are included with the curtain. The curtains will have a small area on the bottom cut-out to expose the galvanized weighted pipe. The webbing straps will wrap around the pipe and cinch tight with a buckle. Wrapping the tie-downs around the bottom pipe through footman loop and cinching tight with buckles pulls tension on the entire curtain allowing wind loads up to 70mph.

  • Tip – You can use the footman loops provided with the curtain, wrap around a bottom railing or use ground anchors. Side tie-downs are available if you can not use the bottom tie-downs.
  • If you are using the tie-downs and wrapping them around a bottom railing, curtain will need to stop at railing and not go all the way to the floor.

Step Seven – Side Fastener Options

7.   Choose the type of side fasteners you will use. Side fasteners are optional. The side fasteners will keep the sides of the curtains from billowing in heavy winds for a more air-tight and waterproof porch enclosure.

  1. The Stayput fasteners must have a 2″ overlap onto a post or wall to install the studs.
  2. The Hook/Bungee fasteners will come with grommets on the sides of the curtains.
  3. Double Hooks/Bungees can be used to keep the curtains close to wall/post.
  4. The Hook/Bungee fasteners come with 6″ ball bungee cords & stainless hooks.
  5. #10 YKK Marine Zippers can be used to zipper the curtains to each other.
  6. You can split a curtain into 2 or 3 sections and use zippers to create a zippered “door”.  Door sections are normally 36″ Wide.
  • Tip- You can use the hooks/bungees without installing the hooks.
  • You may need to adjust the size of the bungee cords.
  • See examples below.

We have had a Sunsetter... awning on our back patio for several years now. When it came time to replace the fabric, I couldn’t find a local company to help us. I found PYC on a Google search and decided to give them a try. I was not disappointed! They had several fabric options and I ordered a few samples. One of them matched the cushion covers on my patio furniture perfectly! I called with questions and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The awning came quicker than expected and my husband and I installed it ourselves. We are extremely pleased with the results and wish we would have done this a couple of years ago. I would absolutely recommend this company!read more

we recently added a... screened in porch and of course we have had so much rain we decided to add the clear roll down curtains to prevent rain from coming on to the porch. PYC Awnings was great to deal with. Sandy was wonderful with going over measurements and pictures. the product shopped fairly quick and was well packaged with each window labeled along with the parts for each individual window. My husband installed himself, and was able to get help with a quick call to Sandy. Very satisfied with the quality of the material and parts. it is nice to sit on the porch when its raining.read more
