    Answers to your popular awnings questions

    We've answered common questions about Hillarys awnings below. If you can't find what you're looking for, please see our general FAQs.

    What is the difference between an awning and a pergola awning?

    Both awnings and pergola awnings are fantastic options for adding shade and style to your outdoor space. The key difference is their structure. An awning is mounted to the wall and extends outwards to provide shade over your patio space. A pergola awning is wall mounted too but with permanent posts and a retractable fabric roof, covering a much bigger space. Both awnings and pergola awnings are motorised as standard and are compatible with a Somfy smart hub so you can operate via a mobile app or simple voice command. You can choose to add optional extras like lighting and heating features to both awnings and pergola awnings.

    Can you use an awning or pergola awning when it’s windy?

    No, we would always advise against using an awning when it’s windy. As a backup, our awnings are fitted with vibration sensors as standard and pergola awnings come with the option to add wind sensors, which automatically retract the fabric when the wind picks up. However, to be safe, don't use your awning or pergola awning on a windy day, as this may damage the fabric, or the frame.

    Are awnings and pergola awnings good for rain?

    No, leaving your awning or pergola awning out in the rain won’t do the fabric any good, and over time it could even damage it. So it's always best to check the weather forecast before use. If you forget to retract your awning or pergola awning during a rain shower, make sure you leave it out to dry before closing it. This will help to prevent fabric damage and colour bleaching.

    Can patio awnings or pergola awnings be used in winter?

    We've accessories including lighting and heating which can be added to your awning or pergola awning to create a cosy area in the winter months. Please make sure you check the weather forecast as the rain, snow and wind can all cause damage. Heating and lighting are great additions for summer evenings too and will help you enjoy the al fresco lifestyle even when the temperature drops.

    How to clean awnings and pergola awnings

    The best way to keep retractable awnings and pergola awnings looking fresh for longer is to make sure they are fully retracted into their protective cassettes after every use. If your awning or pergola awning is in need of a clean, we recommend starting off with a sponge and soapy water. Special shampoo is available from the high street or online, but please read the label carefully before using it on your awning, then begin with a small, less visible area. Please don't use a pressure washer or bleach. These will quickly damage the structure of the fabric.

    Do awnings and pergola awnings add value to your home?

    Yes, both bring many benefits to a home. Retractable awnings and pergola awnings increase the desirability of your outdoor space, as they provide shade and coverage, for outdoor living. They also increase the kerb appeal of your home, which can increase the value of the property.

    Do awnings and pergola awnings need planning permission?

    For residential properties, it's very rare for retractable awnings and pergola awnings to require planning permission. Possible exceptions may be if the garden canopy encroaches on another property, or you live in a listed building or conservation area. If you're in doubt, it's best to check with your local authority before buying an awning or pergola awning.

    Is measuring and fitting included in the price?

    Yes, measuring and fitting are included as standard. Even the most competent diy-er could struggle to measure and install an awning or pergola awning, so sit back, relax, and let your local Hillarys advisor transform your outdoor space.

    What colour should I choose for my awning or pergola awning?

    There’s a really wide range of colours and materials available, you’ll be spoilt for choice! All our awnings fabrics are also available as pergola awnings and you can choose to match the fabric to your garden furniture, indoor furniture, or even the rendering or brickwork of your home. If you're unsure about colours, your local advisor can make tailored recommendations for your outdoor space. You can also take a look at our website galleries and social media channels to see how other customers have used awnings and pergola awnings in their gardens.

    How much does an awning or pergola awning cost?

    As all of our products are made to measure, we cannot give a price without seeing your outdoor space and measuring up. When you book an appointment, your advisor will do all that, plus talk you through any added accessories and fabrics you might want. They’ll then leave you with a no obligation quote.
