What types of awnings are there?

  • Patio Awnings: These typically are installed into the wall of the home and provide shade to the patio area of a building.
  • Freestanding Awnings: Freestanding awnings do not need to be installed into the wall of a building, which allows for more flexibility.
  • Commercial Awnings: This type of awning allows businesses to utilise outdoor space all year round and can help a business to increase its capacity.

For more information regarding any of our awnings, get in touch with our friendly team. We operate in homes across St Albans, Hemel Hempstead, Harpenden and the wider Hertfordshire area.

Alternatively, you’re welcome to visit our Hemel Hempstead showroom and see some of our outdoor awnings in person.

What is the maximum size an awning can be?

Our awnings can go up to seven metres in width with a maximum projection of four metres. It is best to speak to our friendly team to determine the most appropriate size for your specific needs.

Which awnings come with integrated lighting?

The Markilux 5010 and 6000 models and Weinor Cassita II, Semina Life and Opal models all come with integrated lighting as standard. However, many other models will allow for integrated lighting as an optional extra.

Can you have an awning with a greater projection than width?

Yes, we offer a product called the Markilux Stretch awning which can accommodate this.

I live in a bungalow or have a single-storey extension; can I have an awning?

Yes, but it is likely you would need to have a spreader or gutter type bracket.

The standard fitting height is 2.8m, giving you a walk through height of 2.1m.

Can I customise my awning?

Yes, we offer many customisation options, including fabric type, colour and pattern, as well as hardware options.

How do I care for my awning?

Proper care and maintenance can extend the life of your awning. Regular cleaning and inspections are recommended and any repairs should be made promptly to prevent further damage.

How long is the guarantee?

Our awnings are backed by a five-year manufacturer’s guarantee, but with proper care they will last for a lot longer.

Can I install an awning myself?

Whilst it is possible to install an awning yourself, it is recommended to have a professional handle the installation to ensure it is safe and secure. Our in-house team of trained engineers will work quickly and efficiently to complete the installation, before giving you a demonstration and ensuring you are happy with the quality of our work.
