Deciding Between an Awning Repair or Awning Replacement
Many businesses use aluminum awnings, and they can be perfect for advertising your business, protecting your building’s interior from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, and expanding the usable space you have outside of your business. Unfortunately, these awnings will get damaged over time, and when this happens, you need to decide if your awning should get repaired, or if it’s better to replace your awning entirely. Keep reading to learn whether you should get an awning repair or an awning replacement.
When to Get an Awning Repair
Ultimately, if the damage to your awning is minor, there’s a good chance that a simple awning repair will fix everything. Just be sure the foundational structure of your awning is intact. If it is, you’ll very likely be able to save it.
You should also think about the age of your awning. Aluminum is a solid building material for awnings, but it doesn’t last forever. Therefore, you want to be sure your awning is still young before making repairs. Older awnings will need more frequent repairs, to the point that replacing them is a better idea in the end. Younger awnings, however, might not need to be repaired as often, meaning a repair is more worthwhile,
When to Get an Awning Replacement
Awning replacements are more expensive than repairs, so if you’re getting a new awning, you want to be absolutely certain that it’s the right move.
The first sign that you should replace your awning is if the damage to your awning is too great to fix. If you’re constantly repairing your awning, but to no avail, it’s best to get a new awning. The cost of repairs will soon eclipse the cost of installing a new awning, so it’s a better financial decision in the long run.
You should also replace your awning if it has gotten old. Awning materials only last for a certain amount of time, and when their lifespan is up, you won’t be able to save your awning with a quick fix. At this point, you’ll need to replace your older awning with a brand new one.
