Spring Is Here! Get Ready for Warmer Months with Our Awning Installation Services
May 9, 2022
Why get an awning during the spring? Residents and business owners alike may think that waiting until the temperatures really start to rise is the prime time to schedule an awning installation service. On the contrary, getting ahead of the hot summer months can actually be more beneficial when choosing the ideal time to install this covering. While awnings play a critical role in providing more shade, they also can assist in upgrading the aesthetics of a building by enhancing outdoor area spaces making spring the perfect time to install.
Spring may bring some new weather patterns, but these changes can be less drastic than what summer gives rise to. That being said, the prep to install an awning now instead of later can be less cumbersome and far more efficient. Our expert technicians can help guide you through the various options available (retractable or not, side curtain, pergola cover, shade, etc.) and assess what will best meet your needs.
Beat the Upcoming Heat with an Awning
Why wait until it becomes too hot outside to secure installation services for your awnings? The Dorchester Awning Company has been providing shade solutions for over a century, and our custom approach to each client’s needs helps ensure that shade, comfort, and beauty aren’t compromised.
For instance, determining what type of covering is the right choice isn’t always easy to establish. Opting to move forward with adding an awning to your business or home now means that there is plenty of time to design and add this feature before the hottest time of the year arrives.
Along with the obvious perks of installing an awning to provide additional shade, comfort, and beauty, is the added feature of it helping protect your building or home from inclement weather by minimizing how much heat and direct sunlight penetrates interior areas and extended living and hosting space.
Once you’ve decided to move forward with this installation, there are some key steps to take to help ensure the quality and longevity of the awnings aren’t compromised. To begin with, be sure that the coverings are kept clean. Metal awnings are usually easy to clean with a high-pressure hose, whereas fabric awnings may require some elbow grease by scrubbing the material with a soft brush or cloth and a mild soap. Bleach can help remove mildew; just be cautious when using this cleaning solution so that it doesn’t fade the awnings’ colors. If there is mildew on the awning, bleach can help take the mildew out, though special care should be used to ensure that the colors do not fade.
Beyond keeping the coverings clean, it’s also important to monitor them for damage and rust and address these potential issues promptly should they arise. Like with any home or business improvement project, keeping an enhancement in consistent proper working order helps prevent possible bigger issues from happening in the future. Finally, remove any debris as you see it to keep miscellaneous items from damaging the awning.
