    The Benefits of Choosing Canvas Materials

    Last updated 18 hours ago

    Have you ever thought about how many different types of materials are used throughout your home? Your house’s frame is probably made of wood, while the foundation is most likely concrete. Your bed sheets might be made of cotton, and your couch could be covered in leather. For certain purposes around your home, canvas should be your material of choice. Canvas is durable and sturdy, making it ideal for a variety of outdoor uses. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of choosing canvas materials.


    Canvas is typically made from cotton, and is plain-woven for strength and durability. It is a sturdy material that can withstand many forces, which is one of the reasons why it’s ideal for outdoor use. Wind, rain, and sun will quickly damage other materials, but canvas can stand up to the elements. That’s part of why canvas was also the material used for the sails of ships. Canvas holds up under constant exposure to even harsh conditions much better than other fabrics.


    Though you might not think that such a strong material would be flexible, canvas is in fact quite pliable. Canvas awnings can be retracted and rolled up when not in use, and this won’t damage the fabric itself. The flexibility of canvas also makes it a good choice for outdoor use, as it will move with the wind while still providing you with shade. Air can pass through the open weave, making it less likely to rip or tear when it’s windy.


    Canvas is a widely available material, and has many different applications ranging from fine art to camping products to awnings. Because it is so readily available, you won’t have to pay extra like you would for a fabric that is more difficult to acquire. The availability of canvas helps keep costs down when you are having awnings installed at your home.

    Moran Canvas Products offers a wide range of residential and commercial awnings to our customers in the San Diego area. Experience the benefits of canvas for yourself and call (888) 904-8665 to learn more about our products and services. 

    Choosing Window Treatments for Your Larger Windows

    Last updated 13 days ago

    When you are selecting new window treatments for your home, you must consider a number of different factors, including the size of each window and the size of the room. Watch this video for tips on choosing a window treatment for a larger window.

    One option you have when it comes to a window treatment for a larger window is using a window scarf. A long piece of fabric can be wrapped around a curtain rod at the top of the window to add texture and visual interest to the room. If you are concerned with privacy or light, you can add a hard or soft shade that can be adjusted.

    Tips for Choosing Window Treatments

    Last updated 22 days ago

    The way you decorate your home can say a lot about your personality. If you are considering revamping your home’s style, you’ll have many choices to make. In addition to selecting a decorating style, furniture, and accessories, you should consider what type of window treatments would work best for your home. Drapes, curtains, and blinds are all options, as are custom awnings and solar screens to give your home added style. Keep reading for helpful tips on how to choose window treatments.

    Consider Light

    You may have several different types of window treatments throughout your home, as your needs vary from room to room. Window treatments help you control the amount of light that enters your home, so you may wish to have different window treatments in your bedroom than in your living room. Many homeowners prefer to have light-blocking window treatments in the bedroom so that they are not awakened too early. It can be pleasant to have window treatments that let in more light in areas such as the kitchen and living room, as natural light makes your home feel more inviting. You may want to consider using solar screens to reduce glare and minimize fading of home furnishings, especially on windows that face south or west.

    Think about Privacy

    Your windows allow you to see the world outside and appreciate a beautiful day, but a bare window doesn’t give you very much privacy. Awnings will give you a bit of added privacy when they are used in combination with curtains, drapes, or blinds. You’ll probably want to have window treatments that offer the most privacy in your home’s bedrooms and bathrooms.

    Find Your Ideal Style

    There are window treatments available in many different styles, so be sure to look for ones that make sense with your décor. Consider color, fabric, and texture when you look for window treatments so that your interior design has a unified look.

    Reasons to Choose a Retractable Deck Awning

    Last updated 27 days ago

    Having a deck in your yard offers you many different benefits. Your deck extends your living space to the outdoors, and it makes a perfect spot for entertaining or just relaxing with your family. When you have a retractable awning over your deck, you’ll have even more options for how you can enjoy the outdoors. A retractable awning lets you enjoy the sunshine when you want to, and can also be used to provide you with shade on the hottest days. If there’s a little rain in the forecast, you can still enjoy your deck, as your retractable awning will keep you from getting wet. Retractable awnings will also help protect your outdoor furniture from premature fading in the sun, which can save you money. Since these awnings can be retracted, they are less likely to be damaged during storms than non-retractable options.

    Let Moran Canvas Products make your deck a more enjoyable place with a retractable awning. Call us at (888) 904-8665 to experience the outstanding service that has made us San Diego’s top choice since 1988. We are family-owned and operated, and are dedicated to providing you with superior products.

    • This letter is to thank you for your exemplary work on the shade structure at my home. 

      I do not hire contractors very often, but when I have, they have not always made me happy. And I had already been told by someone else that what I wanted to do could not be done. So, when Mike arrived to measure and plan the job, I did not... More
