The Best Way To Remove Snow From Your Canopy Or Awning.

In many areas of the country, snow buildup on awnings and canopies can be a very serious concern and very dangerous in many ways. Luckily in Connecticut having to remove snow from your canopy is a rare occurrence. Although canopies and awnings do a great job keeping the snow off your patios and walkways if snow or ice is allowed to build up excessively on your structure it could be subjected to a higher than normal weight load, which could put excess strain on the structure. There are many different tools that can be used to clear the snow from your awnings without causing any damage. Using incorrect tools can scratch metal, aluminum, or wood awnings or fray and tear some fabric awnings. Below are some of our recommended methods used in removing snow and ice from your awnings. If you are unsure about doing this job yourself it is always best to hire a professional. Use a Snow Broom Snow brooms are great to use on fabric and metal awnings alike. They are soft bristled with an extendable handle. This helps protect your awning while removing the excess snow. Simply push or pull the snow off the awning until...

It’s Time Winterize Your Fabric Awnings!

Awnings can drop your cooling costs by up to 61%, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. The heat reduction that awnings provide will keep your home feeling cooler in the summer. However, While you dream of sunshine during the winter months, you should tuck away your awnings. Winterizing your awnings before putting them away will protects the fabric from damage due to cold temperatures, strong winds, ice and snow. Done correctly, a awning winter-prep routine leaves your investment looking fresh and ready to block the elements when spring finally returns. Brush off any leaves, dirt or debris from the awning. Make sure to start from the top edge of the awning and work your way down toward the bottom edge. Hose off the awning to remove dirt that is stuck. You can use a soft-bristled brush to get out stains or dirt spots. In a bucket Mix a small amount of mild dish soap in warm water  to eliminate stubborn stains. Scrub the awning in a back and forth motion. Be sure to keep the brush damp and rinse frequently to avoid spreading the dirt around. Rinse the awning thoroughly with the hose. Let the awning sit fully opened until it is completely dry. Closing the awning...

Clinton Crossings Upgrades Their Curb Appeal.

Our amazing New Haven Awning crew was in Clinton CT not too long ago to replace the fabric on all the awnings at Clinton Crossings. We used Sunbrella Fabric in a variety of colors to make sure each one represented the store that they were shading. Although these awnings definitely add a touch of style, they also block the sun from heating your business in turn lowering your cooling cost by up to 30%. Store front awnings are our most cost effective shading solution. They offer weather protection, add a visual dimension & can display your signage. Commercial awnings are highly effective marketing tools and will often pay for themselves quickly. Our awnings for storefronts are also available with graphics, lettering, back lit graphics and any other custom design you can think of. With almost 90 years of experience in all aspects of shading, New Haven Awning is the only name you need for premium custom store front awnings, entrance canopies and retractable awnings. Are you ready to upgrade your curb appeal? Contact NH Awning...
