How are retractable awnings repaired?
Does your awning retract correctly? Do you have a rip that lets the sunshine glare through the canopy? We have a few tips for your patio awning to help you get more life out of it or decide whether it is time to either repair or replace your source of shade and comfort.
Find the source of any damage or issues
Your awning has fabric that can rip when the weather is bad. For example, a fallen tree branch can rip the canopy of your awning when you have a bad storm. After significant events, you will want to do a quick check to make sure everything on your patio is intact. When you look at the exterior of your home, does your awning line up and look even? A pitch adjustment might be needed. Make sure to extend it fully if it is a retractable model to give you a clear view of all the parts including brackets, the fabric cover, and the arms.
Check the shade’s manufacturer to compare costs or ask questions
When you find problems like broken components or large rips, it may not be the best solution to repair the problem. For some patio awnings, the cost of professional repairs can be higher than the price to replace the shade. You may find that you can perform your own repairs, or even replace the awning or shade, for much less money when you choose products from DIY Retractable Awnings.
Each manufacturer is different, and patio awnings have proprietary systems and parts making it impossible to interchange items like retractable arms. There are universal brackets, motors, sensors, and control mechanisms on the market for some models, but some parts are much more proprietary.
Knowing what product and replacement parts your shade needs are important to help you save money, time, and a ton of hassle. We can help you determine what parts you need and what the best route is to take in your situation.
Replacing awnings and awning parts
When you extend the arms of retractable awnings, do they only partially open? Is the damage associated with corrosion or broken arm cables? Is the fabric cover ripped in several locations or does it have much fraying? If you answer yes to any of these three questions, then maybe the entire awning may need to be replaced. With DIY Retractable Awnings, it’s easy to do this for a dramatically lower price than having your awning or canopy professionally installed.
