Tips To Help You care For Your Awnings

New fabric awnings need alternate exposure to rain and hot sun on them several times before they fit properly. We refer to this process as "Weathering In".

 

Although never really waterproof, this weathering process also causes the needle holes in  the seams to swell over time to provide better water resistance.

 

To clean your awnings we recommend you lightly rinse your awnings off with a fine spray garden hose to wash away any airborne dust. Never powerwash awnings.

 

Tree sap and leaves are big enemies of awnings. We recommend pruning all overhanging trees back to prevent the accumulation of tree sap and leaves which may stain your awnings.

For All Awnings:

Our Window / Porch / Door Awnings are all custom made from raw materials. They do not come off the shelf or out of a box. These awnings are sometimes referred to as "Loose Frame" awnings because their frames are not rigid, and may be roped to fold up against your home. Window, Porch and Door awnings should never be exposed to heavy winds or winter weather and should be taken down and stored indoors for the winter. Store in a dry place and away from areas that are prone to mice and squirrels. Can provide this service or will be pleased to show you how it's done.

Window / Porch / Door Awnings:

Our Deck / Patio Awnings are all custom made from raw materials. They do not come off the shelf or out of a box. Deck/Patio awnings are sometimes referred to as "Fix Frame" awnings, because their frames are rigid, stay up all year round, and do not fold . Deck / Patio awnings are not designed to accept any heavy snow loads. Therefore, should be removed from their frames and stored in a dry place and away from areas prone to mice and squirrels for winter months. Can provide this service or will be pleased to show you how it's done. Never leave items that can be susceptible to moisture damage such as televisions, under your awnings in rainy conditions. As indicated above, awnings are water resistance not water proof.

Deck / Patio Awnings:

Retractable awnings are "shade only" product. NEVER leave a retractable awning extended in

wind, rain, sleet, or snow. It will be damaged.
