The Details Matter At Dutchess Awnings!

No matter what you’re buying, details matter. That’s why at Dutchess Custom Awnings we pay close attention to the details of each and every awning and sun shade order. Everyone has heard the expression “it’s the little things that count”. That is certainly true with awnings and sun shades.shaking hands w customer

Let’s start with our initial meeting. When you meet with someone from Dutchess Custom Awnings, placement, size and type of shading solution is discussed before a recommendation is made.

While some companies offer awnings and sun shades of varying quality, Dutchess Awnings only offers the best available. We assemble these  high quality components and the result is an awning or sun shade that will serve you well for many, many years.


While other fabric companies are available to us, Sunbrella and Sattler, the two best known companies offering woven acrylic awning fabric, are the two companies we use for all our awnings. Durability, water repellency, breathability and beautiful style are characteristics of woven acrylic and there are hundreds of styles and colors from which to choose. The Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation has been given to Sunbrella because of the protection this fabric offers.

Thread is an important component of every awning and we only use Tenera thread. Tenera will not shrink and cause “pulling” on your awning fabric. This thread is such an important component of your retractable or stationary/patio awning that the Gore Company offers a lifetime guarantee for their Tenera Brand thread.

When considering a retractable awning, most of our customers opt for a motorized unit. We always use a Somfy motor because Somfy is the world’s leader in the manufacture of motors and control systems for retractable awnings. Somfy motorized controls offer ease of operation and comply with UL safety standards. Also, Somfy has achieved ISO 9001 certification in 1005 and safety approval from Underwriters Laboratory.
