I need a boat cover. Can you help me?

Weathermaster™ is our boat cover division that patterns and manufactures mooring and playpen covers. Call or email us with the specifics such as make, model, year, and any non-factory installed parts.

You also have the option of bringing in your boat for a custom cover. That cover may be a playpen cover, a canopy for a pontoon, a traveling cover for a fishing boat, a camper top for a cruiser, or a cockpit cover for a runabout. Call for an appointment and pricing.

I can’t picture what an awning would look like on my store front. Can you help me visualize it?

We sure can! Our sales people carry digital cameras with them. They can take a picture of your building and bring it back to our graphic department who will take your building picture and try different shapes and colors of awnings to see what looks best. Do you need signage, too? We can add your logo or the name of the business in many different fonts. The sales staff will provide you with a color rendering of your building with the choices for you.

How long will my awnings last?

That question is like asking “How long will my new car last?” The answer to that is, “Don’t use it, leave it in the garage, and it can last a lifetime!” It depends on so many factors.

Keeping dirt off your awnings helps a lot since mildew forms on dirt. Today’s fabric fibers resist mildew but will last longer if kept free of mildew-enhancing substances.

When cleaning or removing debris from your awning, don’t use a sharp object that can create a hole in the awning. When rinsing or cleaning, use a soft brush; use only light pressure around the stitching area, since that is more subject to wear than the fabric.

Use a non-detergent cleaner. For more complete instructions on maintenance and cleaning, visit www.sunbrella.com.

Buy a quality item from us as it will last longer.

What kind of warranty do our products carry?

Most of the fabrics and other products that we use have specific warranties . Sunbrella® has a ten year warranty. Many of the sign and graphic fabrics have a five to seven year warranty. Baraboo Tent & Awning, Inc. stands behind all of its products and is proud of its quality of work; we offer a 1 year warranty on our workmanship.

What kinds of fabrics are available?

When someone walks in and says, “I need some canvas,” our first question is, “How are you planning to use it?” We stock hundreds of fabrics for an endless variety of uses. Fiber content, weave, fabric finish, flame retardancy and color all contribute to making certain fabrics suitable for specific applications. Call or email us and let us find the best fabric for your needs.

I have a fold-down camper that has some rips. Can you fix it?

Sometimes, these types of campers are too labor intensive to make it worth fixing. We will be certain to take a look at your repair and tell you up front if we believe that to be the case. A better recommendation may be to replace just a portion of the canvas. In either case, we can certainly take a look at it and together decide on what will be the best direction to go.

Do you have any small tents?

If you mean camping tents, the answer is no. We do not stock any camping tents. (Years ago we manufactured the White Stallion brand of camping tents.) The Cabinaire and screen room were favorites. If you happen to own one you are among the blessed, since White Stallion Cabinaire and screen room owners are some of the most satisfied customers we know of! 

If you mean “EZ-UP” style pop-up tents, the answer is “yes”! Click on our EZ up section to learn more.
