Please describe the project specifications

Traditional style canopy, loose valance with shallow scallop shape, measuring 49' 4" wide x 12' 2" projection (front) and 23' 5 1/5 " wide x 6' projection (left) with corner miter. Fabric is Sunbrella Awning/Marine, Era Mist, striped and 46" wide. Four custom fabricated decorative double post supports 2" x 2" x .180" with unique routed design and painted black.

What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?

The homeowner has a large patio, built in outdoor kitchen and a swimming pool used for frequent entertaining. There was a need for a shaded seating area for guests to enjoy as well as coverage over the kitchen appliances.

What is unique or complex about the project?

The 4 decorative double steel posts with routed designs painted black was a unique feature of the canopy. The client added the loose valance after initial installation. We had to sew on a loose valance that matched the existing stripe pattern. See photos #1 & 2, with and without striped valance.

What were the results of the project?

The canopy provides a shade coverage function and aesthetically enhances the beauty of their backyard setting.
