Does the fabric color I choose affect how hot it is under my awning and how much shade will it provide? | Print |

While color choice has some slight impact, the type of fabric chosen and the overall ventilation of the installation will have a greater effect. The darker the color chosen, the darker the shade effect underneath will be. There are exceptions, however. Certain fabrics have a lighter-colored underneath side than the topside color, which gives a more pleasing shading effect. Again, your awning professional is well qualified to assist you in this aspect of the awning design.
