Does Your PA Awning Need Repair?
One important aspect of maintaining this beautiful look is to be sure you get your PA awning repaired when necessary. Although Sunesta retractable awnings are made to last and are very durable, accidents do happen, and sometimes you experience a tear in the fabric or an issue with the motor. In these situations, it’s best to call a professional to come take a look at your PA awning before trying to fix it yourself.
- Determine the problem. Depending on the issue at hand, you may need extensive repair or you may just need a quick fix. The most common pa awning issues are motor related, electrical, or cosmetic. A minor motor problem could be an easy repair, but a significant motor problem may require a replacement. An electrical problem could include a blown fuse. A professional should be called to assess this type of situation. If your PA awning has a minor cosmetic issue like a tear in the fabric, sometimes you can get away with patching the fabric yourself. But a large rip in your awning might mean it’s time for a replacement.
- Replacement or Repair? Every situation is different and depends on the extent of the issue. Sometimes it’s more cost-efficient to pay for a repair, but other times a replacement makes more sense. As a general rule of thumb, the more significant the problem, the more likely you are to need a replacement. And over time, too many repairs can ruin the attractive look of your PA awning.
- Hire or DIY? If you decide that you only need to repair for now, another decision is whether you can handle the repair yourself or if you need to hire a professional. The same rule of thumb applies here: the simpler the repair, the more likely you can do it yourself; the more complicated the repair, the more likely you will need to call a professional for help. You want the repair done the right way, and sometimes it requires calling in the experts!
