If one of the rooms in your property face south it can be very difficult during the summer months it keep it cool and protect the carpet and furnishings from becoming damaged by the sun. An awning which can be extended out on sunny days is the ideal solution. However, after a few years most awnings need attention and some maintenance such as oiling the mechanisms to make them retract smoothly and possibly replacing the worn and faded awning fabric with new fabric which is a simple task and can either be done with the awning cartridge still in place or by taking the awning cartridge down.

Replacement awning fabric can be ordered online and come in a variety of colours and designs so if you prefer a change from the old design and colour this is possible. It is important that the awnings are measured to check that the awning fabric you are ordering is the correct size remembering that the awning fabric will be slightly narrower than the actual awning cassette.

The process of replacing the fabric is easier if there are two people so that one person can guide the fabric in along the rail whilst the other pulls the fabric along. It is best to do this on a day that is dry and not windy so that the new awning fabric can be put in place and kept taut when retracted.
