The Awning valance is easily removable on retractable awnings by removing the end cap and pulling the fabric out.

There is no additional cost for awning valance.


Measure the height of the wall when Installing your awning. The most important requirement when measuring is the height. Ensure that there is enough space when the awning is extended for someone to walk under. Additionally keep in mind that the pitch of the awning should be at least 18 degrees.

The minimum height is 7’10” (to the bottom of the mounting bracket)

Measure the width of the awning from left to right based on the customers needs. Ensure that you have at least 8 inches of clear, unobstructed space where the awning will fit against the house. If placing the awning on the fascia board, the fascia board should be no less that 8” wide and should be well anchored to hold the awning.

Regular Width: 7’10”, 11’7”, 15’4”, 19’1”
Regular Projection: 8’, 10’, 11’6”



  • The height required when positioning between two points
  • Without a hood – 7’ 7/8” – with a hood 8’7/8”
  • A hood is not necessary if there is an overhead or soffit – the size of the hood is 2” larger than the awning itself
  • Remember the fabric is narrower than the total width of the awning
  • The width depends on the available space and the needs of the Customer - 6” on each side
  • The surface(s) should be level and flat – check the type of surface to which the awning will be attached
  • If motorized, on what side do you want the motor depending on where the electrical source is located
  • We recommend motorization if the awing is over 7ft wide and 8ft projection
  • When measuring please consider all down pipes, air condition pipes, light fixtures molding, etc. that may affect your installation.
