The Moran Canvas Difference
From three generations of expertise to a custom manufacturing facility, learn more about why.
We have awning expertise in our DNA.
Some families pass on physical traits or a sense of humor. We are third generation experts in awning manufacturing, and we love what we do. The Moran family name has been a stronghold of the industry across the country – from the Midwest and south to the west coast. (read more about our history here). Our President Michael Moran is an elite Master Fabric Craftsman, and we are family-owned to this day. Under our leadership, Moran Canvas has received a number of design and achievement awards. When you work with us, you’re working with the experts.
We have a better way of building what you need.
Did you know Moran Canvas was one of the first companies in Southern California to use heat bonding to weld the seams of its products? We are constantly studying advanced processes and undertaking team trainings so we can use the best approach to create superior, attractive products for you. Heat bonding is just one cutting-edge technique we use; it helps you avoid common seam failures and allows your product to retain its appearance for years to come. Bottom line: you won’t find a team with more attention to detail.
We can do anything – bring us our next challenge!
You’ll find Moran Canvas products on buildings all around you – from beautiful homes to busy commercial buildings. Visit our gallery to see some of our favorite work. From residential to commercial, retractable awnings to shade sails and solar shades, no project is too big or small. We specialize in finding creative solutions that complement your architecture while protecting you from the elements. Curved walls? No problem! Continuous canopies? Done it! Indoor/outdoor products? All the time. Our process and facilities allow us to custom-create almost anything you might need. Consider us your partner and advisor. In short: just ask!
We see excellent customer care as part of everything we do.
We are proud to have earned rave customer reviews and repeat business for decades now. We enjoy treating everyone – from our employee team to our newest customers – like family. And we can’t wait to show you what a great experience it can be as we create the look you were hoping for.
We don’t just say we’re committed to quality – we act on it.
Quality comes first. In fact, never in 30 years have we sacrificed quality to cut corners on price. (Wish we could say the same for many of our competitors who have since come and gone!) Considering that awnings and shades will greet your customers, friends or family, we take pride in creating attractive but sturdy, carefully-crafted products that deliver a gold-standard of quality. You’ll see this commitment to quality over and over again – from our expert design oversight and state-of- the-art production processes, to quality control testing and professional installation. In fact, we fully guarantee our frames, fabric, thread, and installation.
We design and build for you under our own roof.
