At LESTER AWNINGS we only use those fabrics that are recognized throughout the industry. All of our fabrics come with
a 10-year warranty and will add beauty and value to your home.


Fabric is an integral part of your awning. In essence your awning will look as good as the fabric does.

In choosing an awning it is very important to make sure that it comes with a Solution-Dyed Fabric that is able to withstand the constant exposure to sun and the changing weather conditions, as we know here in Canada.

Just wanted to let you know that I love my new awning – it looks great and with the rain this past week it really came in handy! Thanks for the prompt and courteous service.

I’ve meant to write and thank-you again for the retractable awning you installed at our cottage on Eagle Lake. It’s absolutely wonderful – your installers were very pleasant and efficient as well.

This letter is long over due, We are the people who brought our trailer to you in June 2007 and although you were very busy, you agreed to make a new canvas and cover for it. I want to thank-you very much for doing this for us, especially when I know it put you under pressure time wise, as we wanted it for camping in July. It took a professional to do it and I was much impressed with the sewing and measurements. It smells so clean and new. It was a pleasure talking to you on the phone and also working with professionals as you people are.
