Our best line of awnings is customizable from the size to the housing to the fabric and valance and braid detail. Choose from a range of solid and striped 100% acrylic fabric that will withstand seasons in the sun.



  • Fabric *

    We use only first grade, 100% acrylic Shade and marine grade fabric from Sunbrella. This fabric carries an 10 full year warranty from rot, mildew and excessive fading. The panels are sewn with GORE Tenera thread which carries the same 8 year warranty.

    *IMPORTANT if you select a pattern or stripe fabric, that it may or may not line up with your main awning fabric. This is due to different manufacturing processes as well as the actual fabric roll width which differs slightly from roll to roll and manufacturer.

Braid Color

Frame Color

  • Frame Color *

    The awning’s aluminum framework, other than the fasteners, is powder coated rather than wet painted in your choice of standard colors based on the model selected. The typical homeowner will select a frame color that best matches their home’s exterior trim color. More Info

Valance Type

  • Valance Type *

    The valance is located on the front of the awning which provides additional solar protection. The fabric is the same as the main body. All the stripes and seams will line up with the main cover. You can select from several styles shown here. More Info


  • Mount *

    SOFFIT MOUNT is currently UNAVAILABLE. The mounting method is based on where the awning is being mounted to the building unit. Choose from two options: Wall Mount or Roof Mount. Wall Mount - This application is typically used on flat two story homes where adequate mounting height can be achieved. Once you determine that this is the best mounting application for you and identify the mount area, be sure there are no obstructions such as dryer vents, exterior lights or downspouts. Roof Mount - This is the typical mounting needed on ranch and bi-level homes to achieve adequate pitch. The brackets will mount on the flat asphalt shingles, 2 rows back from the roof edge, over the eve. With the slope of the roof and the height of the brackets, add 12” to the top edge of the roof to determine mounting height for this method. Specially designed roof mount brackets are required. (Additional Cost)

  • Roof Brackets *


  • Operation *

    You have an option as to how you would like to operate your awning. Drive Side: Choose location of Manual Gear or Motor (right or left side of the awning). Determine left or right side when standing on your deck looking at the house. Manual Operation: The manual crank option requires you to turn a crank handle to extend and retract the unit. You will need to turn the crank approximately 70 times to extend a 10' projection unit - more for greater projections. Retracting the unit will take more effort than extending the unit as you are working against the outward force of the internal arm springs. Motorized Operation: Motorizing your unit will only require an outdoor outlet for power. The unit will operate with a remote control and will stop automatically when fully extended or fully retracted. When your unit is motorized you can also stop it in any position to best fit your needs. Our motors also have a built-in manual crank system so if you lose power you can still operate your awning. This option includes the power cord and remote. Optional Wind Sensor: This wireless sensor is mounted on the front bar and sends a single to the motor to retract the unit if it becomes too windy. The sensor offers an added level of protection to you investment.

A retractable awning doesn’t require a contractor and complication. You can measure your patio, deck or outdoor space and find the best size for your needs. DIY Retractable Awnings carries premade awnings and also makes awnings in custom sizes based on your measurements.

Awnings are made from materials sourced in the United States and Europe for superior quality. The SunCover 1000 is the basic model that comes in a diverse selection of solid or striped fabrics. Awnings retract into their housing when not in use and can be opened at any time to provide shade and cover from the elements.

Take measurements, or work with a local contractor to get the right size and installation for your SunCover 1000 custom retractable awning. Awnings can be added to just about any structure, and many builders choose the SunCover 1000 to put on new construction and model homes due to the quality and reliability of the awnings.
