New year, new home improvement projects? If buying a custom awning is on your checklist of projects to complete in 2016, then you've made a wise choice! But like many other home projects, you're probably wondering what you need to know before making a purchase. Well, look no further! We've got your FAQ's below:


1. Which type of awning will suite my needs?

There are a few questions to consider regarding the type of awning you will need. The two primary questions you should ask before purchasing an awning are: (1) what is the purpose of my awning? and (2) what type of climate do I live in? Once you have the answer to these questions, you can consult with your custom awning company and narrow down your options. For example, retractable awnings are ideal for when the weather gets cold, as you have the option to retract when needed.  

2. Which brands do you recommend?

Purchasing an awning can be tricky enough as it is, but toss a number of brands into the mix and you have an even bigger decision to make. By asking which brands are most popular and why, you can come to an even closer decision. Dean Custom Awnings works with several high-quality manufacturers, such as Sunbrella Fabrics.
