Our maintenance program includes washing and retreating your awnings with an appropriate cleaning solution and water repellent. Depending on the frame style and fabric, almost all awnings may be cleaned without being removed. If necessary we will take down your awning cover and re-stitch seams, replace binding and check for rust on the frame and hardware. Such areas should be promptly scraped and painted, as rust may discolor and deteriorate fabric coverings.
Products used in Awning Works projects require minimal maintenance because of the focus on quality components based on the requirements for safety, performance, strength and longevity:
Products exposed to salt air and or wind driven contaminants must be treated with the same care you would give to a boat or other metallic equipment in order to prevent corrosion and wear of the framework, fasteners and finish. Salt/sand corrosion, “pitting” of the framework or finish, and other environmental damage are not considered manufacturing defects, and are not covered under manufacturer’s warranty.
About once a month:
At least twice a year:
Our frame components are manufactured with a combination of aluminum, stainless steel and corrosion resistant carbon steel where extra strength is required. Although it holds up better than other metals, stainless steel is not impervious to rust.
