My customer just approved a recover for the awning on the front of her home.
She choose a Sunbrella fabric called Slate #4684. It will be a nice dark grey solid color. She is changing the color of her shutters to a gray color.
Solid colors on a home in darker colors really add a nice statement to a homes look.
A follow up with the completed change will follow in about 3 weeks.

The new fabric on this retractable awning looks great! - This is the new fabric the customer choose for their retractable awning.
We took the old fabric off and cleaned the fame. Cleaning the frame is simple. We use Windex and a thick terry cloth towel. Put the new fabric on the frame and level the awning and checked all the moving parts including the motor. Sunesta uses power coating on all metal parts of the awning. This is 10xs stronger than spray on paint finish. This unit looked new when we were done. Sunesta has over 200 fabrics to choose.
