Sun & Rain Protection

A place in the shade is even better than in the sun. And it’s doubly nice when it’s created out of canvas and other industrial fabrics.
Industrial fabrics are strong enough to withstand wind, rain and sun – yet light enough to give you that “outdoor” feeling. Shape it in any of a hundred designs – to cover a patio, protect an entrance, or decorate a poolside area – and it seems to float gently overhead.

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.

Christine K., Peterborough, Ont.

We are extremely pleased with the awnings and the honest, courteous staff of Lester Awnings.

Mrs. Barabara J., Peterborough, Ont.

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.

Cheryl M., Eagle Lake, Ont.

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.
