Awning Ideas / February 13, 2019 / Aurora Hess
Likewise when rain disturbs your outdoor plans--there s no reason to run inside. If you want to tan in the direct sun or take advantage of some heat on a cold fall day the awning can be rolled up just as quickly. When stored retractable awnings take up about six inches of horizontal space on the side of a building. Installed at a downward angle they need to be attached at least seven and a half feet off the ground. All right we ve covered "What are they?" Now let s deal quickly with the benefits that awnings give home and business owners. What can retractable awnings do for you? Obviously they give you a way to control the elements and this is more than an aesthetic pleasure since it preserves furniture from bleaching and lowers utility bills.
I usually suggest that pegging it down is a good idea as a gust of wind will pick the whole thing up and dump it on your vehicle. This often results in panel damage! 4WD Awnings are completely weather proof; I have had a puddle of water build up on our awning when it was raining severely and not a drop came through. Whether its a quick bite of lunch that you are after or you want to sleep under the awning they are a brilliant idea. You can get Awnings that pull out from the rear of the vehicle and awnings that will cover all 3 sides of the vehicle. Expect to pay a considerably higher amount for these but if they suit your purposes then that is great! Home awnings are perfect for a wide variety of uses on windows doors porches and decks.
So often they become dirty. You can always restore the original look and feel of the awnings by cleaning them at least twice a year. It is also a good idea to take the awning down to easily clean the harder-to-reach areas. Brush the Dirt and Debris Off: The awning needs to be washed thoroughly using a solution. But you must use a brush to remove the loose dirt and debris. The brushing off will prevent the dirt from getting soaked into the awning fabric during the washing process. You can rub the areas of the fabric that are affected by dirt and debris using a broom or a soft cleaning brush available at the local janitorial supply shops. However you need to ensure that dirt is removed from the underneath and top of the awning. If you have not take the awning down use a ladder to brush off the hard-to-reach areas.
