Most of the products by Superior Awnings are made with material made by Sunbrella.  Sunbrella is the leading manufacturer of fabric for outdoor use.  There are different grades of fabrics by Sunbrella, but the Sunbrella that Superior Awning uses is marine-grade and has a 10-year warranty.  This particular material is the gold-standard for outdoor use, is weatherproof, and fading is minimal.  It’s not uncommon for the material to remain in good condition for up to 15 years.  To review all of the solid colors and stripes that Sunbrella offers visit https://www.sunbrella.com/browse-fabrics/fabrics-by-use/shade-sails-awnings-pergolas?usage_consumer=16859.  When you decide to meet with a sales rep from Superior Awning they will bring a swatch book with all the materials for you to review.  They can also mail you swatches of your favorite fabrics for free.

Most of the frames built are made from galvanized steel.  The frames should last 25+ years as they are built to last.  The frames are painted a color of your choice.  You also have the option to powdercoat the frames for an additional cost.  To review your paint options visit https://superiorawning.com/stationary-canvas-awning-frame-paint/.

Panorama Awnings

Panorama awnings are retro but still have a modern aesthetic.  They are the most economical option and have a 20 year warranty.  It’s likely that these awnings will last you 35+ years.  There are many color options, and you can review these at https://superiorawning.com/fixed-louver-awning-colors/.

Aurora Awnings

Aurora awnings are old-school and were very popular during the middle decades of the past century, but they’ve managed to keep their charm.  There’s a 20 year warranty, but some of these awnings that were installed in the 1950s are still around.  To review your color options visit https://superiorawning.com/aluminum-awning-colors/.

Patio Covers

Superior Awning has 10+ options when it comes to patio covers.  We guarantee that they offer something that you’ll want for your outdoor space.  We recommend that you choose an option that you can be happy to live with for the next 10+ years because your patio cover will last for a long time.  Moreover, we recommend that when choosing the color of the material for your patio cover it’s a conservative choice.  We’d suggest choosing a color that blends in with the environment of your outdoor space, rather than a loud color.  We must admit that loud colors sometimes turn out to be the best choice, but this all depends on the space.  Each outdoor space is entirely unique and color recommendations vary.

Each type of patio cover has its own pros and cons.  Questions to ask yourself when deciding which patio cover is best for your space include:

  • Are you looking for only protection from the sun? Or do you need protection from both the sun and the rain?
  • Some patio covers require posts, so can fixed posts be well-placed or will it obstruct foot traffic?
  • What’s your budget? Some patio covers are more expensive than others.

 

Cabanas

Cabanas have a very luxurious look and are popular places to lounge at near the pool.  Cabanas are frequently found at high-end hotels and offer the quintessential Southern California chic ambiance.

Cabanas are outfitted with Sunbrella material and the frame is made from galvanized steel.  You can customize cabanas by adding traversing curtains, or pleated drapes alongside the poles on all four corners.

Retractable Awnings

Retractable awnings are a popular choice if you want the flexibility of having both shade and sunshine.  The manufacturer of the retractable awnings is Spettman.  Spettman is a German company and they are the oldest manufacturer of retractables in the world.  They provide a 10-year warranty for the hardware, but you can expect the frame to last 20+ years. 

You can operate a retractable awning with a hand-crank or it can be motorized.  If you want it to be motorized your options are either a light switch or a remote.  For an additional upgrade you can have it upgraded to be operated by Smart-Home technology.  An additional option is having LED-lights underneath the awning.

To learn more about the specifications you can review the brochure at https://www.superiorawning.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/Spettmann-Brochure.pdf.

Canvas Patio Covers

Canvas patio covers are essentially just bigger awnings.  Canvas patio covers are a great choice for those who want to create an outdoor room that’s completely protected from the elements.  What’s especially great about this choice is that you can have a TV or workout equipment, as this option is completely weatherproof.  To provide maximum protection from the elements we recommend adding traversing curtains around the entire perimeter of the structure.

Aluminum Patio Covers

Aluminum patio covers are like canvas patio covers because they provide protection from the sun and the rain.  They are equipped with rain gutters and a downspout.  You can expect these to last a very long time, as they have a 20-year warranty.

Alumawood Patio Covers

This option is a terrific choice for many reasons.  Perhaps the best reason is that you can have the classic pergola look, without the upkeep and maintenance wood needs to remain in good condition.  Wood pergolas require a lot of maintenance and wood can begin to rot or deteriorate in as little as 1-2 years if you aren’t careful.  On the other hand, Alumawood is powdercoated aluminum with a 20-year warranty.  There’s no upkeep with Alumawood.

There are a lot of options in deciding the style of Alumawood.  The roof can be solid or made of lattice.  There are multiple color choices and bevel styles for the end cap.  To review the brochure visit https://www.superiorawning.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/Alumawood_Brochure.pdf.

One other really cool feature is that you can add lights or fans underneath which is perfect for outdoor entertaining.

Slide Wire

This is one of our favorite options because the feel and look of the slide wire is awesome.  Add some string lights underneath for an especially atmospheric space.  The slide wire canopies can be added to an existing structure or Superior Awning can build a steel frame to accommodate the canopies.  The canopies are made from Sunbrella and the frame is made from galvanized steel.  This option is only for protection from the sun, as water will be able to find ways to get underneath the canopies.

Adjustable Louver Patio Covers

This is the most expensive option available and is typically found at high-end hotels and homes.  What’s most liked about this option is that the louvers can be adjusted from being completely open to the sky above to being closed to provide maximum protection from the rain.  The patio cover has a 10-year warranty and is operated by a remote control.  You can also add lights and fans underneath.

Shade Sails

Shade sails is a tongue twister.  This option is trendy and popular.  The shade sails offered by Superior Awning are custom-made and much higher quality than shade sails that you can order online at Amazon.  Keep in mind that pricing is also a lot higher than Amazon and can easily be $2,000+.  The good thing about these particular shade sails is that you can leave them up for 10+ years and not worry about the wind.  It’s very important that the shade sails are very secure.  This means that wood posts do not work, and posts often require concrete footings, which will increase the total cost of the project.

Shade sails are made from material manufactured by Polyfab.  There’s a 10-year warranty and you can review the color options at https://superiorawning.com/shade-sail-fabric-color-chart/.

Additional Products

Superior Awning also offers outdoor curtains and drop shades.  These products are heavy duty and use materials for outdoor use.  For indoor curtains and drop shades it’s better to find another company that specializes in indoor applications of these products.  For outdoor use, you can’t find better quality than what they have to offer.

Outdoor Curtains

Besides looking great, outdoor curtains are very useful because they provide privacy and protection from the wind and rain.  Curtains are made from marine-grade Sunbrella and are fitted with chain-link sewn into the hem of the fabric.  The reason for the chain-link is that it keeps the curtains weighted and prevents any damage from the wind.  There are multiple ways to customize curtains, and these options include tie-backs, splits, and different ways to attach the curtains.  You can also choose to hang the curtains from either a track or a rod with rings.  

An alternative to curtains are pleated drapes.  Pleated drapes aren’t functional; they’re only for aesthetics.  Pleated drapes cost less than curtains and are a great way to complete the overall look of a space.

Drop Shades

Drop shades are versatile and provide a cleaner look than curtains.  What’s especially great about roller drop shades is that you can open or close the material whenever you want.  When opening and closing the drop shades there are several options.  You can use a hand-crank, pulley system with rope, or have it motorized.  If you decide to have it motorized you can use either a remote or a wall switch.  You can also upgrade to have it Smart-Home compatible.  

You can use Sunbrella for the drop shades, but the most popular choice is a material manufactured by Textaline.  Textaline is a mesh material that keeps out the sun, but allows you to enjoy the view.  There are different densities available and the greater the density the more protection you get from the sun.  The color options for Textaline are limited, but the good news is that the colors are neutral so you’ll most likely find a color you like.  To review your options visit https://superiorawning.com/textilene/ or https://superiorawning.com/textilene-nano-95/.

There are even more ways that you can customize these drop shades, so make sure to discuss these options during your visit with a sales rep.

Gate and Fence Covers

This is surprisingly one of Superior Awnings most popular products.  Have you ever driven by a mansion with a big gate that was covered so that you couldn’t see through?  Chances are that it’s this product (and made by Superior Awning).  These covers are tailored to the shape of either your fence or your gate.  They can either be attached with screws (the most popular choice) or using rope and grommets.  As you can already guess, they use Sunbrella for the material.

Tarps

This is another one of Superior Awnings most popular products.  However, tarps are almost never made with Sunbrella.  The reason for this is that if there isn’t a slope water will puddle and this will quickly destroy the material by Sunbrella.  Sunbrella is waterproof, but that doesn’t mean that puddled water is OK for the material.  The most commonly used material is Textaline.  Textaline has a 10-year warranty.  The top perk of Textaline is that it doesn’t really get dirty because it’s a plastic and so it can’t soak up dirt or stains.  To review your options visit https://superiorawning.com/textilene/ or https://superiorawning.com/textilene-nano-95/.
