Awning Replacement Fabric
After suffering through a couple bad hail storms, our awning has started to leak a bit. I know these spider web type cracks can be sealed, but because they underside is not so pristine anymore, we are going to replace our fabric.
I will likely check with Escape as well to see if they can supply the fabric, but thought I would first ask here to see if others had good ideas on suppliers.
Our awning is a 12' model that extends 7'. I have looked around at a few places, some that make them to suit the width, and a couple that seem to have Carefree replacements. The biggest problem I am finding is that almost all replacements are 8' deep, and the arms on my awning will not extend that far, so a 7' is needed.
I am willing to pay more for a quality fabric that will last even longer. I see some offerings of an acrylic fabric, that supposedly has less issue with mold, as it supposedly breathes. Obviously, I have a bit of concern with the waterproofing effectiveness of this, but if it does work well in shedding water (kinda like Gortex) it sounds good.
