Adding a Sunesta awning to your home is a great way to enhance the beauty of the exterior, protect the interior from sun damage (such as fading), and shield yourself from the elements when sitting outdoors.
But like any outdoor product, you might find yourself experiencing issues with your retractable awning. Many problems can easily be solved by yourself with simple Sunesta awning troubleshooting; but, if you ever find yourself in need of assistance with awning repair, you can always rely on Paul Construction and Awning to be there for you!
Sunesta Awning Troubleshooting is Simple!
Sunesta is the leading manufacturer in the retractable awning industry. They provide high-quality products and great warranties to go along with their products. The comfort and convenience of an awning is what draws homeowners to these outdoor living space enhancers. But sometimes homeowners experience minor issues with their awnings. Here are the most common problems, along with how Sunesta awning troubleshooting can quickly resolve these issues.
- Wind. It should come as no surprise that strong winds can cause problems for awnings. And depending on where your awning is placed on your home, and the size of your awning, wind can present even more problems. Luckily, Sunesta awning troubleshooting is very easy for this one: retract your awning! When you know there’s going to be a storm or you feel the wind picking up a bit, just retract your awning to save it from getting beat up.
- Fabric. After plenty of use, your awning fabric will start to get dirty – it may even develop some mold or mildew. Some people are very sensitive to mildew. To prevent this from happening, clean your awning every so often. Just rinse it off thoroughly with the hose. For a heavy duty clean, use a mild detergent and brush the awning off. For professional help, Paul Construction offers awning cleaning services. Luckily, Sunesta’s fabrics are long-lasting and are covered by a 10 year warranty.
- Brackets. If you hear a cracking noise when you extend or retract your awning, it means that the brackets are not completely tightened. Tighten the mounting bolt and get rid of the cracking noise.
