  • Awning Installation: Coverage Decisions That You Should Consider

    0

    Important decisions must be made prior to the installation of awnings. Adding awnings to your home can enhance its outward appeal and also raise the resale value of the property. The right type of awning can minimize heating and cooling costs by protecting the windows from the elements. A few of the most common decisions that need to be made, when it comes to awning installation are:

    • Size   Choosing the right size of awning will help keep the appearance of your home balanced and pleasing to the eye.
    • Style – When deciding on the style of awning you plan on having, you want to make sure that whatever one you choose fits with the Awning Maintenanceexisting style of the home.
    • Material – Awnings can be made out of a variety of materials including canvas, vinyl, resin, aluminum or galvanized steel. The material the awning is made of can determine how effective it is at protecting the windows or how much light is allowed into the home.
    • Pre-packaged – Pre-packaged or assembled awnings come already made and ready to be installed. Retractable awnings come pre-packaged with all of the mechanisms already assembled and in good working order.
    • Custom design – Awnings can be customized by color, style and material. You can have ornate awnings built to your specific requirements, including color, material, size and style. When a basic template is used, awnings can be designed that account for odd sized windows. They can be made in specific colors using the material you want.

    Is it possible for a homeowner to install an awning with a DIY approach? Yes, it is indeed an option, but the strains of wind and weather with the electrical equipments needed for installation usually put such a project strictly under the “professional contractor” category rather than a DIY one.

  • Why Awning Maintenance and Care Is Necessary

    0

    Retractable AwningWhen you put up awnings around your home, you do it to protect the surface of your house and to provide some shade, especially around your windows where sunlight can make the inside of your home hot. While awnings are designed to shield your house, they take the abuse of the sun and the weather all year long. Although they are made to take that abuse, over time, they can start to look a bit worn, which may make your house look less clean and valued. That’s why awning maintenance and care is so important.

    Stains Can Ruin Awnings
    Awnings are made of materials that are designed to stand up to the outdoors. However, things like mineral deposits from rain, snow, and ice can leave permanent stains on your awnings if they are left for too long. That’s why it’s important to give your awnings regular cleanings throughout the year. Other natural elements that you may not even think about like bird droppings can also leave marks on your awnings, and if they aren’t cleaned regularly, those stains could be very difficult or even impossible to remove.

    How to Clean Awnings
    The simplest way to start the cleaning process with awnings is to simply use a broom to remove as much dirt and debris as possible. From there, you can use cold water and a non-abrasive sponge to wipe down awnings. You want to avoid hot water as it may cause your awnings to shrink or discolor in unpleasant ways.

    Along with regular cleaning on your own, you’ll also want to hire a professional service to clean your awnings on a yearly basis. By doing this, you’ll be able to make sure your awnings don’t have any damage to them and that the investment you’ve made will stand the test of time.
