5 Ways To Protect Your Awning From The Arizona Sun

There are a lot of reasons why awnings are beneficial for our homes or business establishments. We mainly want to reduce the risk of sun exposure and of course keeping furniture protected from sun damage. Taking care of your awning is important, allowing it to serve its purpose for the longest time and saving you money. The sun’s ultraviolet rays can be one of the enemies, causing our awnings to get damaged;

So here are 5 ways to protect your awning from the Arizona sun.

 

Choosing the Right Material

This is the most important thing that you should remember. You need to choose the right material for your awning. We don’t want to spend money on a low quality material. The sun’s ultraviolet rays can cause extreme damage to your awning fabric. Heat can definitely cause the fabric to dry out, fade or even crack. Thus, lowering the lifespan of your shade. An ultraviolet and color  resistant fabric is the right material, one that you should choose. This type of fabric can definitely resist possible sun damage.

 

 

Cleaning

Since awnings are placed outdoors, it can really get dirty. Aside from the fact that people will not appreciate the beauty of your awning when it is covered with dust or debris, preventing dirt can can minimize  damage to your awning. Different types of awning fabric requires different type of cleaning. So we need to follow the manufacturer’s recommendation on how to clean your awning, and keep consistent with your cleanings.

 

 

 

Protection

Cleaning can be of big help but most of the time we need protection for our awning as well. You can do that by applying waterproofing or ultraviolet protection to your awning fabric. Regular cleaning and applying additional protection can keep your awning fabric fresh, attractive and of course prolonging its existence. Again, manufacturers have specific protection products that you can use for your awning fabric. Be reminded that awning fabrics can be damaged if you are going to use a protection product that is not recommended for that specific material.

 

Thorough Inspection 

This is also recommended in making sure that your awning is in good shape. You can’t tell when your awning encounters problems, if you don’t check it thoroughly. Inspecting it can help us check whether the fabric is damaged or not. There are tendencies to overlook when the awning fabric is developing a small tear, that can lead to bigger problems in the future. We should also check the awning hardware to ensure that it is still durable and safe, where it can cause no harm to anyone.

 

Storing Away During Bad Weather

During severe weather conditions, it is best the protect your awning from strong winds by retracting the awning. With the awning retracted against the building, you avoid possible damage to the fabric and mechanism. All Pro Shade Concepts are the experts in awning installations.

5 Things To Consider When Replacing Your Awning Fabric

Everyone loves to hang out when the weather is nice. But nowadays we should always keep ourselves protected from too much heat, and UV rays. For outdoor lovers, we often look for options on staying outside without worrying about sun exposure. Thanks to the invention of awnings, we can enjoy the summer sunshine without the concern of protecting our skin.

 

If you have awnings installed at home or at your business establishment, Here’s 5 things to consider when replacing your awning fabric:

 

  • Worn Out   

Let’s face it. Fabric can’t last a lifetime, so they tear or fray with time. Sometimes damage is caused by extreme exposure to the sun causing the fabrics to fade or even break.  It can cost a lot of money if you replace the whole awning, All Pro Shade Concepts can help. We offer a wide selection of awning fabrics to bring your awning back to life.   

 

  • Fire Resistant

We should always consider awning fabrics that are fire resistant. There has been an increase of importance in fire prevention even in public spaces. You might want to check your awning fabric specifications to see if it meets the standards. Look for a fabric types that not only keep you safe, but is also energy efficient.

 

  • Ultraviolet Rays Resistant

We think of awnings as effective sun shading. But are they really efficient? Go back and check the current fabric used in your awning. Fabrics really vary in their ability to absorb or even block ultraviolet radiation. All Pro Shade Concepts offers a variety of awning fabrics to best protect your family.

 

  • Durability

Often, people worry solely on budget when purchasing products or services. They miss the mark on the importance of good quality and proper installation. For awning fabrics, you want to use fabric that will last, especially in the Arizona Heat. Look for fabric that can endure extreme heat, is waterproof, and resistant to mold and mildew.

 

  • Attractiveness

This is important for business establishments, but also at home. Awnings bring appeal and can make or break the look of a building. Frayed or damaged awnings can make a home or business look dingy and unattractive. Look for a fabric that matches your home or business motif, adds to the style, but also resists fading.
