4 tips to make your awning last longer

Our awnings are made of high-quality materials to give them the longest possible operational life. For the manufacture of an awning, high quality materials such as aluminum are used, a very versatile metal, which is not affected by corrosion and is very resistant. Heavy-duty fabrics are also used to last for many years.

At Elite Vertical Supply we are experts in the manufacture, design and installation of retractable awnings so we are going to give you some tips on how to make your curtain last longer. 

How to make your awning last longer?

In order to make your retractable blind last longer, you must take into account different aspects of great importance, such as, for example, retracting the awning when it starts to rain. In this way we will prevent it from getting wet and we will have to wait for it to dry.

In the event that the awning cannot be collected when it rains and it has gotten wet, it should not be rolled up, it should be spread out and allowed to dry at room temperature and thus  we will avoid the possibility of dampness, which brings with it stains and possibly fungi. . N ever use any kind of system such as radiators, heaters or dryers because they can affect the colors and the awning fabric itself. 

As a second piece of advice, we recommend picking up the awning when the wind begins to blow strongly,  in this way we will keep the structure of this fabric in a correct state of conservation. If not, what could happen is breaking the awning canvas or pieces of the metal structure. 

If you will be away from your home for a period of time, it is important to leave the awning fully folded up and secured, especially if you will not be home during the rainy season and when it is windier.

Finally, do not forget that the awning must have good periodic maintenance. This way you will always be in the best possible condition.
