Retractable awnings are an essential addition to any backyard, so it’s important that they are set up properly and without fail. If you’re thinking about this smart solution to shelter you from rain or shine, you might be curious about the setup process. At Dean Custom Awnings, our professionals are trained and experienced in awning installation. Here’s how we provide you with a custom awning:

Prep work

Evaluate - Our professionals evaluate the area and make sure it’s not obstructed with lighting fixtures, vents, generators or other obstructions, so that your awning can easily swing up and down.

Measure and mark - We then mark how high you want the awning to be installed. Next, we attach it high enough so that people can comfortably walk under the clearance, but not too high that sun is always coming in through the open side.


Mount the brackets - Once we know exactly where your awning should be, we mount the brackets to keep your awning safe and secure. This is where the hood and the bar if the awning will need to be installed.

The commitment to proper and quality installation means we work harder and smarter than our competition. We are at the forefront of the awning industry and offer our customers the latest and most convenient, speedy services available. We are members of the North East Canvas Products Association (NECPA), Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI), and Professional Awning Manufacturers Association (PAMA), and we carry only the best in awning products.
