Enhance Year-Round Comfort with Awnings in Tweed Heads

Enjoy Optimal Home Climate Control Throughout Every Season

As Aussies, we cherish our beautiful outdoor spaces, basking in the sun and savouring the scenery. Whether it’s unwinding on the patio, hosting gatherings on the verandah, or enjoying a barbecue with loved ones, outdoor activities bring us joy and a sense of community.

Yet, unpredictable weather and pesky insects can sometimes spoil the fun. No one wants to be caught in a sudden downpour or surrounded by bugs while trying to catch a breather.

To ensure comfort and protection from the elements year-round, choosing the right shade solution is essential. Awnings provide a versatile option for creating or expanding outdoor areas, offering both practicality and style.

Here at Watson, we specialise in crafting awnings in Tweed Heads that marry exceptional functionality with stunning aesthetics. With our awnings, you can fully enjoy your outdoor living space, no matter the weather, in a truly unique way.

Why Choose Awnings?


Fabric Awning

For optimal longevity and resilience of your awning, selecting the right fabric that can withstand diverse weather conditions is so important.

Given that different awning types demand specific fabrics, it’s key to align your choice with your particular awning style.

Our awning fabrics are engineered to withstand Australia’s harsh weather while maintaining aesthetic appeal. With our Folding Arm awnings, you can even personalise your colour preferences. When deciding among our fabric options, keep the following factors in mind:

Air flow

If you want a clear view and good airflow, Clear PVC is your pick. But if you prefer a cosy patio with a breeze, go for a fabric with around 10% openness and an open weave. This ensures an inviting outdoor environment while allowing for proper airflow.


Outdoor fabrics often face various elements that can degrade their quality over time. Luckily, fabrics treated with DURAGUARD® Fabric Protection are designed to resist stains, eliminate odours, discourage bacterial growth, and prevent mildew and fungi formation. This innovative protection system helps your fabric stay in top-notch condition for an extended period, even in challenging outdoor environments.


To maintain the vibrant appearance of your awning fabric over time, selecting a fabric with outstanding sun-fade resistance is essential. Look for a fabric with a rating of 6 or higher to guarantee that the colour remains vibrant, even with extended exposure to sunlight.

Privacy and view through

When picking an awning fabric, it’s important to know the difference between open and closed weaves. Also, think about your privacy during the day and at night. Dark open weave fabrics let you see out during the day but might not give you enough privacy at night. So, choose carefully based on what you need.

Tips 'n Tricks

Making a checklist can help you choose the perfect awning fabric for your home or store in Tweed Heads. It lets you match your needs with options and find answers quickly. With careful consideration, you’ll find the ideal awning fabric for you.

  • Purpose: To pick the best awning for your needs, it’s vital to know what you’ll use it for. Different spaces have different needs, so knowing its purpose is key. For example, an awning for a swimming pool might not work well for a store.
  • Space: After figuring out why you need the awning, it’s important to make sure it fits the area you have in mind. While many options work in most situations, some may need extra checking. By carefully looking at the space and what it needs, you can pick the perfect awning. And remember, our team is here to help you every step of the way.
  • Fabric: For a better understanding of our awning fabrics and the different options, please see the detailed information above. Remember, the fabric choice should match your needs. For example, if you want transparency, clear PVC might be better than a retractable canvas awning.

Excellent service.
Excellent service again. I have used Watson Blinds to install in both the kitchen and more recently the utility room, all working off the same remote. By far the best installation of the alternatives I looked at.

We could not be happier and highly recommend them.
We had honeycomb blinds and sheer curtains installed today and can not fault the process from beginning to end. Loyzek was on time to measure up and help us make decisions on what blinds and curtains would meet our needs and had amazing knowledge about all products. Today, Russell and Merv arrived were professional and courteous and completed the work in a timely manner with precision. Both Russell and Merv were very knowledgeable about the product, from installation to cleaning and safety. We could not be happier and highly recommend them.
