Custom Curtains For a Beautiful Poolside Cabana.

We recently designed and installed some great custom curtains for a poolside cabana in Bloomfield, CT.  We used the Sunbrella fabric named slate (#4684) and it looks amazing the way that it matches so perfectly with the surroundings of this great backyard. By now most of us have heard about Sunbrella fabrics, considering the fact that it’s used in many applications ranging from furniture to boats. There’s a reason for this awesome fabrics popularity and here are just a few: UV and Fade Resistant They will hold their color, even with constant exposure to the sun. Most of Sunbrella’s shade fabrics come with a 10-year warranty against fading. Sun Protection The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends Sunbrella as an additional measure against UV rays with a stoppage rating of an amazing 98%! Breathable Comfort Unlike most shade fabrics that trap the heat underneath, their fabrics allow air to pass through, offering a cooler more comfortable space below. So what are you waiting for?

Max Downtown Gets a Beautiful Custom Entrance Canopy.

We just visited Max Downtown in Hartford, CT. Not to eat some of their amazing Berkshire Pork Chops but to install one of our custom entrance Canopies. Now while their patrons are waiting for the valet to bring their automobile around they can stay dry and comfortable. For even more convenience we added recessed lighting so at night visibility isn’t an issue. When you check out the pictures below you will see that we also added custom painted graphics to the three visible sides to make sure their location will pop as you drive by. An entrance awning does so much more then just enhance your curb appeal. It protects visitors from the elements and it can even save you money by blocking the sun and in turn preventing the heat from entering your business in the summer. Need a custom entrance canopy?

To Retract Or Not To Retract That Is The Question.

Before you decide on which type of awning is right for you it’s important to understand the benefits of each.

Stationary or Fixed Awnings A fixed awning has a welded frame that is attached permanently to a wall or structure. These awnings don’t move and become a great permanent addition to your home or business Advantages of a Stationary Awning: Some store owners want around the clock backlit business promotion as well as shade and curb appeal. Permanent installation is hassle-free. We can design and customize just about any shape you need or want. Because it is a welded permanent structure it’s best able to withstand harsh weather. You can cover a much larger area then you could with a retractable awning. Ideal for smaller areas like windows and doors.       Retractable Awnings A retractable awning attaches to your home just like a fixed awning, but it can be opened to provide as much or little cover as you’d like. Retractable awnings extend with motorized controls or manually with a hand crank....
