Awning Ideas / February 23, 2019 / Shari Nelson
Built from a similar selection of material as stated in the previous paragraph canopies can still retain the natural collective body heat from guests (and hot food) with only the most minor of fold-down fabric walls. And as fall weather progresses and the temperatures drop these simple measures can be augmented with propane heaters turning outdoor dining into a year round possibility - even in some of the country s harsher winter climates. But awnings canopies and shade structures are just the beginning as a restaurant s overhaul or seasonal change must be thorough and complete. In other words if a new awning sets a new mood or tone chances are the inside of the restaurant and even its menus will require tweaking too.
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.
By controlling sunlight you ll find yourself getting more use out of the amenities and spaces you already own: poolside deck balcony patio; grill gazebo outdoor bar hot tub. But there s more. Awnings act as an extension of your home adding square footage to your home or commercial building. They allow you to expand the look and feel of your interior into the outdoors serving as an architectural addition but without the typical costs. No contractor or expensive installation is required. In the residential setting this results in outdoor space for entertaining relaxing and eating. In the business setting it means additional room to seat patrons serve customers or hold meetings. In both cases the "outdoor rooms" end up adding value to the business or home. On top of this awnings result in direct energy savings. Installed strategically they make the inside of a building up to 15 degrees cooler cutting direct sunlight and shading windows.
