Typically, all metal-wrapped awnings are acrylic (not vinyl). Acrylic fabrics hold color much better than vinyl and are very durable and easy to maintain. Unlike vinyl, acrylic awning fabric "breathes", so moisture runs through it making it noticeably cooler under the awning. Torn acrylic awnings can not be repaired.
Because vinyl fabrics don't "breath," it is usually hotter under a vinyl awning. Vinyl awnings also have a tendency to attract mildew. Carefree uses a stronger vinyl fabric than their competition and is less expensive. Torn vinyl awnings can be repaired.
