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...

Darbar India Gets Their Awnings Recovered.

The NH Awning crew was at The Darbar India Restaurant in Branford, CT last week to do another great awning recover. I really like the way the gold painted graphics pop off that Sunbrella fabric. Not only does this awning look great but it also helps potential customers find this great restaurant as they are walking down the street. New Haven awning design and fabricates all of our awnings in house so there is no need to special order a frame just because it requires some custom fabrication. For instance this awning frame is a combination of the half barrel style for the entrance combined with a quarter barrel frame for the windows. Do you have an awning that needs a touch up?

The Sunbrella Fabric Durability Challenge

For a while now we’ve been talking about how durable Sunbrella Fabric really is. Sometimes you just have to see it to believe it. Below is a video of multiple people attempting to stain this incredible fabric. They try everything from red wine to chocolate sauce and in the end using just some tap water the fabric remains clean and stainless. To top it off they even go as far as to show that any color awning fabric made by Sunbrella can be cleaned with a simple bleach and water mixture without any loss of color. Is it time to recover you old or faded awning? Contact New Haven Awning now to keep that canopy shining for years to come. Check out more videos on our YouTube...

Gateway Apartments Get A Great Entrance Awning

The mini neighborhood that’s dubbed “Downtown West” by The Bridgeport Neighborhood Trust now has a great new entrance awning with custom graphics. To keep the black fabric popping we used Sunbrella fabric. This remarkable material resists fading and regardless of the color can even be cleaned with bleach with out the loss of color. Unlike others Sunbrella fabrics are saturated to the core with highly UV-stable pigments making it extremely resistant to fading and because the fabric is 100% acrylic it also resists tears and frays. Stay tuned for more on this magnificent fabric. Next week we will have a video of this material truly being put to the test.  Click here to watch the video!   Breaking ground on a new project?
