Autumn 2014

Autumn has arrived, and the crisp, cool air is rolling in! Being inĀ Rochester is the best – there are orchards with juicy apples and festive pumpkins in every direction.We are well into scheduling autumn take downs of tension awnings, custom canopies, and any seasonal Sperry structures. Knock on wood, we have been able to wait a little longer this year because there has been no hurricane forecast to speak of in this area. Call us today to schedule your takedown; we also offer wash, check, repair, and storage services at your request.

We have had a busy summer season, dear readers, with very little time to stop and smell the flowers. Thankfully our install teams did have time to stop and snap some photos, and I am happy to share with you some of our latest projects in a preview here, before they go up on our website proper.

Mesh Tension Awning

a custom tension awning on the Vineyard – shade, rather than water resistance, was the priority – so we used a densely woven mesh to allow water to drain right through

White Tension Awning

a custom tension awning over a dining area – a classic white Sunbrella number, with our signature Sperry twist

Custom Sidewalls

custom clear sidewalls to protect party guests from ocean breezes on cool days


a custom Sperry Tent in Oahu, 58′ x 120′ – the biggest trick was putting it up over the monkeypod trees!

Hornblower Niagara

and the largest – a Savannah Series tent for Hornblower Niagara

If you are interested in a structure for installation in 2015, please give us a call, or send us an e-mail atĀ We are making our way through our waiting list, and would love to help you with the perfect shade solution for your home or business.
