Looking to create a shady outdoor space for your home or business? Custom awnings are an excellent investment, especially if you live in the Northeast region. Whether you’re thinking about having a custom awning installed or replaced, consider these popular awning materials that are made to last:



With all the precipitation you experience in New York and Connecticut, you need a waterproof awning. Why? Because not only will you need an awning that can withstand the rain and snow, but you also need one that can resist mold and mildew. That being said, a vinyl awning is a wise choice, as they are designed for humid environments alone.


Acrylic awnings are durable and perhaps the most traditional choice for awnings. On top of that, they can also resist mildew as well as UV ray damage. The other benefit? Acrylic comes in a wide array of colors due to the type of fibers from which they are created. Check out a few of the most popular awning fabrics by clicking here.

Once you choose an awning material, it’s crucial to choose the right frame style that suits your needs. Whether that be dome shaped or traditional, it's important to talk with a professional, high-quality awning service.

Your home is one of the biggest investments you will make, so why not add all of the comforts that will help boost your home’s value? There are plenty of ways you can add value to your home from the inside out. But when it comes to your outdoor space, one of the most effective ways you can increase comfort and value is by adding a retractable awning. Here’s why:

Enhance outdoor space - Maybe you have an outdoor deck, but how often do you use it? If you shy away from using your outdoor space because of excessive heat or a little rain, then you might benefit from a retractable awning. With a beautifully, custom-designed awning you can put that backyard space to use and add an additional area to your home.

Increase energy savings - UV rays are not only harmful to your health, but they can also raise the inside temperature when you’re trying to keep it cool. But did you know that retractable awnings can reduce inside temperatures by as much as 8 to 15 degrees when applied to your windows? And the best part is that you can easily store them in the winter when you want the sunlight to warm up your home.

Add element of design -  There’s not denying that your home looks ten times better when you customize it. So when you choose a customized awning, choose from a wide range of patterns and textures - that way you can create a whole new look that you will receive tons of compliments on when in use but can quickly retract when necessary.

It’s never too early to start thinking about adding value to your home. If a custom awning sounds like the right addition for your home, then turn to Dean Custom Awnings! We can help you create a custom retractable awning, tailored to fit your needs. For more information, visit us on the web or call us at (845) 525-1193.
