yea but is it really water proof?
it appears to be fabric is it treated?
its hard to see how vinyl is at the bottom of th eline ? not only is my awning to short
it just does not look to be very water proof
the past new vinyls ive had appear to withstand water better
The withstanding of water is subject to how a fabric awning is used and maintained. Do somthing that would remove the water seal or cause wicking and you could get some drips here and there. Mine is ten years old and although I have only owned it for about a month and one half I have not had any real problems aside from the original repairs to the ten year old handles that were abused and the desire for a larger size.
Here is a link to the booklett on mine:
Care and cleaning:
Look things over and go with whatever works best for you.
I am most likely going to live with mine for a while and concentrate on sealing over the freshly caulked roof seams with everbond tape, cleaning up the oxidation on the fiberglass and getting a good polymer sealer such as poly-glow applied to help cut down on the exterior maintenance.
