Established in 1989. The business was started by sole proprietor & inventor Kennon McKinney fresh out of high school over 25 years ago at the young age of 18. We started out hand cleaning awnings under the name Spotless Awnings, Inc. but shortly grew into a full-service canvas and vinyl Awning and Canopy custom fabrication company. Now as Back-Lit Awnings & Canvas, LLC this company is hands down the BEST fabric awning company in the S. Texas region, period. We are a small company that pays enormous attention to the highest detail. Isn’t that why people buy awnings anyway?….to dress up their home or business. Our reputation speaks for itself & of course, references are available upon request. Let us put our experience & knowledge to work for you & your Business!
