From excellent ultraviolet (UV) protection to added style to your property, homeowners and commercial business owners have come to enjoy the many benefits of their retractable awnings. Over time, it is not uncommon for your awning’s fabric to show signs of aging or experience damage. Instead of purchasing a new awning, clients in Palm Beach, Martin, and Broward Counties, Florida, can have their awning fabrics professionally recovered by Solarus USA.
How to Know When to Recover or Replace Awning Fabric
Before choosing to replace or recover an awning, you should weigh multiple factors to ensure you make the right decision. Some aspects to consider include:
Condition of the Fabric
Start by examining the condition of the awning fabric. If it’s dirty or discolored, a thorough cleaning may be all that’s needed to improve its appearance. Should the fabric have suffered more severe damage, such as rips or tears and discoloration from aging, you may want to have it recovered instead. Recovering will have your awning looking like new, in a way that simple maintenance cannot always accomplish.
The Integrity of the Frame
If the fabric is damaged, check the other elements of the awning to see if there are more affected areas. Many awnings are made from high-quality materials, but may still face damage from external pressure or heavy weather conditions. If you detect no structural issues with the awning, recovering the fabric may be the acceptable solution. However, if the frame has been bent or damaged, you most likely will need to have the entire awning replaced.
Reasons to Have Awning Fabrics Recovered
With its wide range of uses, an awning is a defining functional and decorative feature for the exterior of a residential home or commercial business. Therefore, it makes sense that people would want to recover their awning fabric. Some specific reasons to seek fabric recovers include:
Change the Design
One of the advantages of an awning is adding a design element to your property. It helps elevate the look of a home or business and may enhance its curb appeal. Perhaps you’ve taken over a new business and need to alter its aesthetics or wish to change the outdoor style of your home. In either case, recovering your awning provides the freedom to do so.
Improve the Awning’s Function
Besides beautifying outdoor spaces, awnings also reduce people’s exposure to the harmful UV rays of the sun. If your awning has experienced rips or tears, its functionality has diminished, resulting in less protection for individuals when outdoors. Recover your awning to take back your outdoor space and enjoy it once more.
