Courtyard canopy

All LuMac canopies are made to measure, which means we supply any size you need. From the smaller project, like this lovely courtyard canopy, right up to school canopies. The canopies are also available in a range of colour options to suit any home. Isobel opted for the Anthracite grey finish and sent us this photo and review of the finished canopy:

“After a long wait to get my courtyard canopy fitted, it’s here at last and I couldn’t be more happy.   The look exceeded all my expectations and the joiner who fitted it is going to look into getting one himself😊. We also have others in my street that are seriously thinking about ordering too.

Thanks again for a brilliant product.

Best wishes

Working around pipework for canopy

Working around pipework

One question we are asked often is how do you manage working around pipework. Each property has a unique setting, and the majority of those can be made to work for the canopy. In this case Doug sent us a photo of the drain pipes on the attaching wall. This is a good place to start as we can then advise on how to best fit the canopy. The fitting team discussed the solution with our customer and completed the build with a neat finish. Doug sent us this review: ”Thanks for everything Claire really love it can’t wait till summer!”

What are the benefits of sinking the canopy legs?

There are many benefits to sinking the canopy legs. Not all canopy systems use this technique, but it is the only way to ensure longevity. Rosalind is a LuMac customer who had a patio area already down when she ordered her canopy. Our skilled fitting team lifted the relevant slabs to allow the legs to be set into footings.


The footing has been designed by structural engineers to have the correct depth and width for the 75mm squared leg support. The footing has a thin layer of concrete to make a level base for the leg, which is then backfilled. This method of sinking the canopy legs means they have a substantial surround, and can handle all weather conditions. The slabs can then be fitted back around the legs once set, making a neat finish.

The finished result:

White canopy with legs sunk into footings.

Rosalind kindly sent us this review:

It would be great to mention your fitting service with Dave. I only found out about your fitting service when I looked at the reviews on your site.
I had advertised for someone DIW to fit the canopy and the price was more than Dave had quoted for, and in the end the guy asked if the instructions were included in the pack.
Dave was most experienced with erecting the canopies. From start to finish, he knew what was needed and they worked fantastically .
If any of my neighbours comment on our canopy I will certainly direct them to your site and service.”

Grey Canopy Dining Area

This grey canopy dining area is simply stunning. Perfect for relaxing, and the Anthracite Grey frame matches beautifully with the Bi-fold doors. Part of the wall cladding was removed for the canopy wall plate, because this ensures a strong fix.

Adding accesories:

LuMac garden canopies can transform a space, especially when our customers add beautiful accessories. The addition of a decorative lamp post enhances the look, and you can just imagine sitting here on a lovely summer evening.

Stunning Canopy

Tags : 

This Lean To canopy with balcony above is the perfect example of how they can really transform a space. The garden space was already beautiful, but improved even more with the addition of the canopy.

Our skilled installation team lifted the relevant paving and sunk the legs into concrete footings. This is to ensure a solid base in any weather. The top was then set with stones to create a seamless finished look.

White Lean To Canopy

White Lean To Canopy

Tags : 

This customer chose our White Lean To Canopy and as a result it matches in perfectly with their home. There is also an option to have an Anthracite Grey finish on the frame work. The roofing material shown here is the 16mm polycarbonate in the clear option.

Setting the legs:

As this customer had an existing patio where the legs would sit the individual slabs were lifted and concrete pads laid underneath, because this provides the best base for the canopy in any weather. The slabs were then cut back around the sleek leg posts in order to create a seamless finish.

Down pipe on attaching wall for Lean To Canopy:

In this build there was a down pipe on the attaching wall. To overcome this an extra section of pipe was added to divert around the edge of the canopy. This is the best option if the pipe is near the end of the canopy. The photo below shows how this was acheived:
