We all want to greet the new year with a fresh outlook. A thorough home inspection must be done at least once a year, and if you haven’t yet, this is the time to do so. Check for things that should be thrown away, repaired, refurbished or replaced. Inspecting your window treatments & shades is a good starting point. Faded awnings, window screens and patio shades can be an eyesore and can decrease your Arizona home’s overall appeal.
Here are some signs your window screens, awnings, and patio shades need replacement.
All Pro Shade Concepts installs custom window sun screens, awnings, and patio shades; and are the leading shade providers in Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, the East Valley (Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler, Tempe, Queen Creek) and West Valley (Phoenix, Glendale, Sun City, Laveen, Peoria, Avondale, Goodyear).
Fabric or Mesh Tearing
Let’s start with the obvious: low quality window screens are often brittle and susceptible to tearing. Tearing can also be caused by curious children, pets, and even rodents! When you see small tears in your window screen, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a gaping hole. This is a clear sign that you should replace them with high quality material, to ensure they last a long time.
Discoloration or Fading
When the sun screen mesh becomes discolored, it won’t do a great job giving you the shade and privacy you need. It may be a sign that the material is about to give way. DIY solutions for discoloration or fading are usually temporary, and not visually attractive. It’s always best to consult a professional.
Get high quality fabrics for your awnings. Awnings from All Pro Shade Concepts come with a 10-year warranty.
Other Visible Damage
While other visible damage like dented or bent frames or mesh can be repaired, it’s best to check first if the material is flimsy to begin with. Repairing them is definitely not worth it if they’re bound to break again. The same goes for roll shades that keep getting stuck. Consider installing motorized patio shades and adding wind and sun sensors for your peace of mind.
