How we remove commercial awnings


1) Initial assessment and consultation

The first step is to schedule an onsite inspection to determine how your existing awning can be dealt with. As fabric awnings age, signs of wear and tear will show up, and the metal frames may begin to rust. If the awning fabric is the only problem, all you have to do is to replace it with new fabric. But if your awnings no longer add beauty and may even be seen as a potential safety hazard, then it’s time to remove and replace them. There are other reasons for removing the awning, such as an impending hurricane.

You also need to consider and review your budget carefully. During this stage, you should consult the building experts regarding this matter.

2) Removal techniques

The two common types of commercial awnings are retractable or fixed. Here are the steps on how to remove them.

Retractable awning:
If you are removing a retractable awning for repair or replacement, be sure to do it with extra caution. The components are spring-loaded and can pop up at any time.

Step 1: Retract the awning’s frame and remove the end covers.

Step 2: Loosen the stop clamps and remove the awning valance.

Step 3: Secure the arms and unroll the fabric.

Step 4: Remove the stop clamp from the front bar.

Step 5: Pull through the fabric.

Fixed awning:

Step 1: Loosen and unlace the wing laces.

Step 2: Untie the awning’s front part.

Step 3: Loosen the Velcro sleeves and even the head rod.

Step 4: Place the head rod on the track and then tighten the securing nuts.

Step 5: Fold the awning fabric and store it. If it is damp, let it dry before storing it.

3) Disposal or recycling of the awning fabric

Awning fabric can be made from various materials, the most popular being acrylic.

Acrylic is not a biodegradable material, so it won’t easily break down when you dispose of it. Besides, it is UV-resistant, so that it can last a long time even under the harsh sunlight. So, instead of disposing of your old acrylic awning fabric, you can recycle or repurpose it. You can send it to a recycling facility or convert it to new and functional items, such as tents or shopping bags. Or let the professionals who removed the awning also do the disposal for you.
