Canvas Awnings Lakeville

Are Canvas Awnings the Right Choice for Homes in Lakeville, MN?

For most of the 20th century, canvas awnings were the clear choice for homeowners in Lakeville, Minnesota, who wanted an outdoor shading solution. Canvas, a natural cotton material, is relatively durable, lightweight, and easy to clean, which at the time made it superior to other material options. However, it also quickly absorbs moisture, making it susceptible to rapid mold accumulation and deterioration. Today, canvas is no longer considered the ideal awning material. Even when coated with vinyl, it tends to deteriorate much faster than synthetic options, such as acrylic, that have come on the market more recently.

Compared to canvas awnings, acrylic offers much better resistance to moisture absorption, mold, and deterioration. Acrylic also offers better protection from the sun and superior resistance to fading. In fact, a high-quality acrylic awning will look and function like new for years with minimal maintenance required.

Sunesta of the Upper Midwest is proud to offer top-of-the-line retractable awnings that are made with premium, 100 percent solution-dyed acrylic.
