Frequently Asked Questions
Where should my awning go in the garden?
Your new garden awning can be sited in a variety of outdoor locations to provide you with the greatest usable space for relaxing or entertaining alfresco, whatever the weather. The majority of our customers choose their awning to be installed over a patio or large terrace, but freestanding awnings are gaining in popularity in larger gardens with seating areas that may be away from the house.
What kinds of awnings do you supply and install?
We supply and install a large and varied range of solid, German-engineered Markilux awnings for various uses and locations in the garden. From manually operated, retractable patio awnings to electrically controlled skylight awnings or remote-controlled freestanding awnings, some also have automatic rain sensors and all are fully home automation compatible.
How should I measure up for my garden awnings?
In order to get the perfect fit for your new awnings, accurate measurements are a vital prerequisite. You can rest assured that the responsibility for taking the right measurements is entirely ours. Our experienced in-house surveyors will come out for a free on-site measuring service at your home, and provide an accurate quote based on the measurements taken.
Are there different fabrics and finishes I can choose from?
Of course, there’s a vast amount of choice when it comes to specifying your perfect awning. From plain colours to bold graphics, smooth and textured fabric finishes, UV resistant and flame-retardant properties, you can customise to your heart’s content. We can even produce bespoke colours to match existing room schemes, and there are several options available to frame colour.
What kind of accessories do you supply?
In addition to a vast choice of fabrics and finishes, there are customisation options for extras too. Do you have a home automation system and want to add your remote controlled garden awning? How about solar powered awnings with outdoor heating and patio lighting? Let the team at AQ Blinds know your wish list and non-negotiables, and we’ll be delighted to work with your requests.
Can you give a quotation over the phone?
