Woonsocket Awning Co. has been crafting residential awnings in Rhode Island since 1926. The business was started over 90 years ago by Albert Durand.
Albert, a Canadian fox farmer, moved his family to the United States in 1924. Albert worked for Rhode Island Awning after the move and discovered a talent for the work. It wasn’t long until Albert started his own business, Woonsocket Awning Rhode Island. He later established the business under the name Woonsocket Awning Co.
Albert’s daughter and son in-law, Robert Pelliter, took over the business in 1955. The business was then passed on to Robert’s nephew, Charles Lepage.
Woonsocket Awning is now owned by Albert Durand’s great grandson in-law, David Dansereau. David learned all aspects of the business from Charles Lepage.
Parà’s Tempotest solution dyed acrylic fabric is exclusively offered by The Miami Corporation. Available in an array of unique Italian designs and colors. Tempotest has the advantage of added dimensional stability when compared to other awning materials.
Tempotest has a DuPont Teflon Technology finish that is patented Teflon Extreme by Parà. This provides a more consistent finish. It also enables Tempotest to repel water and oil-based stains.
Tempotest has a 10-year warranty. For more information on Tempotest by Parà awning fabric please visit our website.
