Get That Awning Ready For The Summer!

Get That Awning Ready For The Summer!

After the up-and-down winter we’ve just had. I’m sure we are all ready to do some relaxing in the sun.  Before we start enjoying our awning there are a few things we need to do to make sure our investments lasts for the years to come.  We are going to assume you followed the steps we listed in our post about how to winterize your fabric awnings and get right into the steps we should take this spring. A good amount of the stuff we should do are the same steps we took in the fall only because we winterized our residential or commercial awning correctly this should take less than half the time. Extend your retractable awning completely if you are working on a fixed fabric awning lay out the fabric on an area free of debris and dirt. Remove any dirt or debris from the awning that might of collected during the winter months. Make sure to start from the top edge of the awning and work your way down toward the bottom edge. Inspect the fabric for any discolorations or stains. Pay close attention to any areas that may be susceptible to build up. 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. 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. Fully open your retractable awning and listen for any squeaky noises, if you hear any a gentle lubricant on all the hinges should clear it up. Be sure not to get any of the lubricant on the fabric   Learn More About Awning Cleaning & Maintenance...

Stamford Building Just Got A Box Awning With A Surprise Inside!

Stamford Building Just Got A Box Awning With A Surprise Inside!

The New Haven Awning installation crew visited a newly renovated building in Stamford, Connecticut to install a great looking box awning. From the outside this may look like an ordinary box awning, but if you look closer you can see that there is a shed awning inside! Why you ask? Box awnings are terrific designs because of their straight lines and great advertising space, but they do have a downfall… They are flat on top or for this reason they are sometimes designed topless. By adding a shed awning to the inside we kept the appeal of the box awning and added the all weather protection of a shed awning. The awning fabric we used is Serge Ferrari Précontraint 502 vinyl. The 502 vinyl is a high-performance awning fabric that aids in structural stability as well as offering in a great variety of colors, this awning fabric gives a designer look and feel. It also provides UV resistance and protection from the heat and weather to make sure this awning will last for years.   Have a project that needs the NH Awning Touch? Contact Us Today For A Free...

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?
