FAQS

  • How much does the Tortola Awning cost?

    All our patio awnings are bespoke, made to measure to your exact requirements and therefore the cost varies significantly depending on the specification (size, hardware colour, operation type…) property type (house, extension, bungalow…) and subsequent mounting brackets, along with any options (lighting, heating…).

    Our Tortola Awning starts at £3,490 inc vat, installation & 5 year guarantee upto £7,000+. To obtain a budget cost for your specific requirements is really simple using our estimate form, where you simply need to upload a photo of your application and some approximate measurements and then one of our estimators will be able to provide you with an accurate cost indication.

  • Providing a patio awning is installed with a pitch of 14 degrees (or greater) as set out in European Directive EN 13561, then it can be used in rain showers. At this pitch, rainwater will run off the fabric (and not pool on the material) with the added advantage thanks to the exclusive  TEXgard coating featured on our materials that it will clean surface dirt from the material ensuring it keeps a clean visual appearance.

    Our Tortola Awning can be set from 0-45 degrees (0-75cm fall p/m) and our surveyors will confirm at survey that the awning can be installed with the required pitch for rain shower use. Based on our most popular 3m projection (arm size), this means a typical mounting height on the façade of 2.8m.

  • There are many considerations that should be taken into account when selecting your patio awning including use (outdoor dining, internal shade…), property aspect, surrounding factors (trees, fences…), obstructions (soil pipes…) and aesthetics. As a general guideline, it is recommended for the width to add 0.5m to each side of the door/window the awning is covering and for the projection (depth) to select a minimum arm size of 2.5m+, where alfresco dining / entertaining will be taking place.

    Our Tortola Awning is available upto 5m wide x 3m projection and at survey our experienced surveyors will discuss and run through with you based on your application the optimum size awning for your requirements.

  • Patio awnings can be safely installed on single storey buildings including extensions & bungalows, however, the majority of the time, specially designed bespoke load bearing brackets will be required. The two most common bespoke brackets are spreader plates and cantilever brackets, also known as gutter brackets (pictured).

    These brackets spread the fixing load created by the awning down the façade, as the upper brick/blockwork bears no structural strength and position the awning either at the top of the wall (spreader plate) where there is sufficient space or in front of the soffit / gutter (cantilever bracket pictured) where there is limited mounting space above the doors/windows and/or to increase the height of the awning to achieve a sufficient pitch for rain shower use.

    When obtaining a initial budget cost (and the reason for requesting a photo of your property) our estimators will advise on whether any bespoke brackets are required to safely install the awning (and overcome any mounting limitations) and at survey, our surveyors will measure and design any bespoke brackets required specifically for your property.

    The Tortola Awning is an ideal awning for mounting on bespoke brackets as it is an end fix awning and therefore only requires a bracket at each end.

  • In the majority of instances, planning permission is not required to install a patio awning on the rear of a residential property, as these fall under permitted development rights. There are some exceptions however, including where your property is located in a conservation, green belt or AONB (area of outstanding natural beauty), your property is listed and where permitted development rights have been removed (usually in historic locations to protect the character of an area). Your awning should not extend over or encroach your neighbours boundary and additionally must not be positioned so that rainwater will run off or drain onto your neighbours boundary either.

    As every local authority regulations vary, there is no one rule for all, so if you are unsure it is always recommended to check with the local authority.

Patio Awning Reviews

It looks really lovely

Just a short note to thank you very much for my awning.  It looks really lovely and it was great, just came in time for the hot spell.  I must say that the two workmen came and were very good and made a good job of fitting, and clearing up and leaving everything tidy.

Ann - Southampton

110 out of a 100

I am writing to say how lucky I was to select Caribbean Blinds to carry out the project at my house. The team were brilliant a nice group of lads and so friendly. Your office staff were great also. Had the 1st-floor awning out all afternoon as was streaming into my study. Overall 110 out of a 100… well impressed. And that is not easy to achieve from me.

Cobbold - Winchester

Very professional

The 3 gentlemen were very professional and did very well to protect the patio walking glass and tiles, despite dreadful weather. I am very happy with their job, and I am looking forward to trying it out once we are getting the scorching sun!

Zhou - Fulham

Highly recommend Caribbean Blinds

Excellent customer care and service from all aspects. Quick job and good quality product. I would highly recommend Caribbean Blinds.

Loizou - London

Wonderful efficient local company

We are very happy with our new Cuba awning and may it provide us with many years of pleasure. Your workmen were very polite, tidy and contentious, with the right amount of being sociable. Totally happy with everything from beginning to end. I know it was quite long winded but we needed to be completely happy that we was choosing the right product as it is a lot of money and there are so many people on the internet selling for a lot less. Thanks once again and we will certainly spread the word when our neighbours see it about your wonderful efficient local company.

Bates - Suffolk

Everything we hoped for

The canopy is everything we hoped for and came in use for the first time this weekend when we had a dinner party. We were able to sit outside until the guests departed at 2 am! Your company has been very professional throughout, at each stage and with all your staff. Even better that it’s British. I would recommend you to anyone who asked.

Henson - Woodford Green

Pleased and impressed

We are both very pleased and impressed with the installation of our awning and the professional way in which you and your team processed our order in such a short space of time. We used it for the first time today, a far cry from gazebos and parasols and looking forward to many more hours of sophisticated comfort. Many thanks for a great service and product.

Buck - Suffolk

Very happy with the product

Very happy with the product and the fitters – everything went very smoothly and the awning looks great.

Boaler - Harpenden

Very impressed with the service

I am very happy with the awning, it has given our courtyard a wonderful feel, plus will provide the shade we need. I have been very impressed with the service your company has provided, right from meeting you at Grand Designs to the fitting today by two great guys who done a lovely job.
