You count on your awning for an enjoyable outdoor experience throughout the spring, summer and fall, and ensuring that comfort next year means you should winterize a retractable awning now, if you haven’t already done so. These are the basic steps to get you started.
Clean and Inspect the Fabric
To begin with, give the fabric a thorough cleaning. Spend a little extra time inspecting the awning to spot areas of concern that require extra steps. Your awning could be affected by mold and mildew as well as moss or fungi if pooling water is a problem.
Retract It Completely
It can be tempting to keep your awning extended for much of the winter so you can keep using your outdoor space in inclement weather when the temperatures aren’t too low. But exposure to rain, sleet, ice and snow are likely to damage your awning or its mechanical parts. Once the fabric is clean and dry, retract it completely.
Get Maintenance Now
If you discover that your awning needs professional attention, such as torn fabric or mechanical problems, consider calling your local awning contractor for assistance now. Waiting until spring when everyone else is calling for help could delay you being able to use it.
