Canvas Awnings Oakdale

Drawbacks to Canvas Awnings for Homeowners in Oakdale, MN

For decades, canvas was the best awning material available for homes in Oakdale, Minnesota. Made from cotton, canvas awnings were relatively lightweight, durable, and easy to clean. However, they came with many disadvantages as well. Because canvas quickly absorbs moisture, it is highly susceptible to rot as well as mildew and mold growth, so it needs to be frequently cleaned and replaced.

In recent decades, new awning materials have come to the market that are superior to canvas in nearly every way. For example, at Sunesta of the Upper Midwest, we offer awning fabric that is made from 100 percent solution-dyed acrylic. Unlike canvas awnings, our products are highly water resistant and will never rot, mold, or mildew. They will also retain their beautiful color long into the future with minimal maintenance required.

Contact Sunesta of the Upper Midwest to learn more about what makes our fully retractable acrylic awnings a better choice than canvas awnings for your home in Oakdale, MN. When you do, be sure to ask about the many customization options we offer, including awnings sizes, colors, and more.
