$4 for a roll of duct tape

Seriously, they do make patch kits for the awning fabrics. New awning fabric would run in the $200-$350 range depending on what type and size.

I wouldn't sweat that, they make a clear awning tape that works great, easy fix. I fixed several small tears on my old awning and it held up great.

Hey! I think like Westie and Aaron (first thought was, "crap!", second thought was "duct tape!")!

Then... Oh, geez, "I think like Westie and Aaron.

LOL

Sorry about the pinecones. Never woulda thought they would cause damage like that!
