Retractable Awning Fabric Replacement – Canvas Fabric Replacement
This week we had the pleasure of working with John in Largo to replace the acrylic canvas fabric on his retractable awning. A high quality retractable awning system frame will be constructed of aluminum and stainless steel and will therefore outlast its original canvas awning fabric. Even the highest quality fabrics will eventually wear after more than 10 years of use. So, we sent out our retractable awning measurement experts and made a new cover for John in a beautiful blue stripe fabric that complements his patio color scheme very nicely.
John will continue to gain great benefit from his retractable awning as it shades his outdoor living space from the sun. In fact, he can expect a reduction in temperature of about 20 degrees compared to the direct sunlight he had to contend with before he installed his retractable awning. This particular awning fabric includes a 10-year warranty against fading, cracking, mold, mildew, and any other degredation. Because it is made of 100% solution dyed acrylic fibers, the color is throughout the fiber rather than just dyed into the outer edges. A good visual is the carrot vs radish analogy: If you cut a red radish in half , it is white on the inside much like a piece-dyed cotton fabric would be. In contrast, if you cut a carrot in half, it is orange throughout. This is how our solution-dyed fibers are made. They cannot fade prematurely because they are the same color throughout their depth.
