About Our Retractable Awnings in Greater New Orleans

All of Mudbug Pavers Heavy Duty Retractable Awning Models are manufactured with pride and tested in a 50,000 square foot manufacturing facility founded by a Degreed Engineer and opened in 1981.

The facility is run by robotics, state-of-the-art computer technology and an extremely efficient high quality assembly line. This allows us to install your awning as fast as 12-14 days depending on the season!

The manufacturing facility is 100% privately owned and has zero debt and will expand to an additional 50,000 square feet by the end of 2008 to keep up with our steady demand. It is the only "Robotic State-of-the-Art facility of its kind in the United States! This unique time tested, systematic and precise production method of each Mudbug Pavers & Construction product drastically ensures the elimination of pulls, tears, and imperfection caused by human error still associated with inferior retractable awning models.

We use only the finest high grade corrosion resistant Stainless Steel. Our special Square Bar and Roller Tube is made out of strong "Memory Steels coated with a hot double dipped galvanization material inside and out and is totally sealed from the elements. Our Connecting Rods, joints and pivoting parts are all stainless steel. Our frames, arms and all components are dipped with a special corrosion resistant rust coating.

Finally, they are coated and sealed with a triple coat, 4mil powder baked process, high gloss finish. Some models having up to 4 custom color choices, white, beige, clay and bronze. Most competitors use a very flexible T6063 aluminum, only offered in a stark white thinly coated paint process. The T6063 is a Florida product that is often made from used recycled aluminum scraps. This product looks bulky and in medium to large size awnings has an extremely flexible poor wind quality disadvantage.

Our shoulder assemblies are tested, designed and engineered using "Jack Screw technology". This technology was taken from the aviation industry and imitates the trailing edge of an airplanes wing. The trailing edge of a wing is designed to move up and down for take-off and landing, it moves up and down by huge "jack screws without going out of alignment and more importantly operating in severe wind pressure. Sunesta shoulders are one of the most important components in the strength and operation of our retractable awning system and "jack screw technology is state of the art and exclusively used by Sunesta Awnings.

At Mudbug Pavers & Construction we are proud to market Sunesta brand. The quality of the awning is demonstrated by only offering the finest materials, our awnings we use Sunbrela, Premium, "Marine Grade Fabric." There is no finer 100% acrylic solution died fabric in the world that will withstand South Louisiana's extreme sun damaging and brutal semi-tropical weather conditions. Over 200 colors to choose from! We also use a special Gortex/Tenera thread that is a "manmade material." This miracle thread has been tested in the extreme UV sun-ray and heat conditions in the deserts of Arizona for 15 years with absolutely no signs of strength decrease, wear or rot failure! All of our high quality fabric seams are double, robotically stitched, for extra strength and longevity!

All of the sewing processes are done in a clean, controlled "Robotic environment which means that the fabric is stretched to the same degree as if the awning was rolled out, this process eliminates puckering, tears and marks made from pulls. Most competitors, while working in an unclean, uncontrolled make shift shop will use tools such as common pliers and pointy screwdrivers to unevenly pull and stretch the fabric along a dirty shop table or in some instances a dirty garage floor. The lighter color the fabric the worse the situation gets!

Due to the "special Rain and Moisture weather proof coating that is part of every Sunbrela fabric process, human handling should be prevented as much as possible! Mild human handling is ok, heavy human handling is definitely not recommended! The Sunbrela weather proof coating applied to fabrics, is in fact, extremely long lasting for any weather conditions and is minimally handled at the factory. Sunesta stocks hundreds of custom color stripes, solids and integrated patterns for immediate manufacturing and installation on your beautiful home or business! Please check our "award winning website for last year's most popular color selections and patterns, sunesta.com

Mudbug Pavers & Construction will measure all parameters to assure a custom manufactured size from our exclusive "Smart Fold System of 5 to 9 feet and up to 60 ft wide, and projections of up to 15ft, all one piece with no spacing in between awnings. Most competitors cannot build these large sizes and will try to sell you multiple awnings. The disadvantage of this is that the awning is not as esthetically pleasing, and when it rains you will have water gaps in between the awnings. Mudbug Pavers & Construction along with Sunesta offers 5 Heavy Duty models to choose from. All heavy duty rated and TUV Complete Frame tested for Louisiana' severe weather conditions.
