Darbar India Gets Their Awnings Recovered.

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

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

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 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.   Breaking ground on a new project?

Winterize Your Fabric Awnings!

Winterize Your Fabric Awnings!

Window 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. While you dream of sunshine during the winter, 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 awnings 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 when it’s even a little damp will encourage the growth of mold and mildew, which can ruin the awning. If your awning has a hanging valance remove it. Clean the valance by hosing it down and scrub it with mild soap and a soft-bristled brush you used in step 3. Allow the valance to dry completely. Roll it up and store it in a cool and dry area. Retract the awning completely and check for loose or hanging fabric that might tear during winter storage. If there is any tie the fabric out of the way to protect it. If you do not have a retractable awning then remove the awning from the frame. Fold the awning to prepare it for winter storage. If your awning is retractable lace the winter cover over the awning. These special covers go right over a retractable awning to protect it from winter weather.   Learn More About Awning Cleaning &...
