There are many factors to consider when choosing the perfect awning. Awning Warehouse offers years of experience as the leading fold-arm canvas awnings supplier in South Africa.

You deserve to spend time outdoors, no matter the weather

Patios provide a great way to enjoy the outdoors, but sometimes the weather can interfere. With a canvas patio cover, you protect yourself against the rain and sun while enjoying outdoor living. Choose between the two different systems for operating your canvas patio cover: the crank or the pulley system.

The crank system is the more expensive option

The crank system is the more expensive option but is also the most reliable. It features a gear system that ensures the cover will stay in place, no matter how severe the weather.

The pulley system is the most affordable option and is, nevertheless, very reliable. It uses sturdy ropes and pulleys to move the cover-up and down, so you can adjust it to your needs.

No matter what, you’ll have protection from the elements

No matter which system you choose, you can be sure that your canvas patio cover will stand the test of time. They are made of tough, weather-resistant fabric that will protect you from any weather conditions.

So, whether you are looking to keep dry or avoid the sun a canvas patio cover is a great option at an affordable price. If you want a wind-free solution, or one that keeps the cold at bay, then consider adding a track blind or roller blind. And, if you have windows in your outdoor living space, Awning Warehouse has “roll-down curtain” options to further enhance your experience.

Customise your patio with high-quality awning covers

Patios can be a wonderful addition to any home but they can also be quite expensive to build and maintain. At Awning Warehouse, we believe that everyone should be able to enjoy the benefits of a patio, which is why we offer a wide range of covers for patios that are both affordable and stylish.

What is the lifespan of canvas awnings?

While canvas awnings can last for more than a decade with proper care, it’s important to note that the lifespan can vary depending on various factors such as quality of materials, exposure to weather conditions, maintenance practices, and overall usage.

Our canvas awnings are made from imported non-fade canvas, which is dyed and clean-guarded to resist staining. These awnings are available as fixed or retractable extensions and come with a guarantee of five years.

You must undertake seasonal maintenance to ensure a longer lifespan for your canvas awning. This involves removing cobwebs, debris, dirt, leaves, and twigs with a broom and then hosing down the awning with fresh water. For tougher cleaning tasks like mildew, a solution of water and mild detergent can be used, along with a soft bristle brush for scrubbing. Thoroughly rinsing the awning with clean water is essential. By diligently following these maintenance practices, the fabric of the awning can potentially last from 10 to 15 years.

Roll up Canvas Awnings for Home and Business

Did you know that canvas awnings are among the most popular choices for home and business owners? They were first made popular by the British and Irish decades ago, who wanted to bring some of the charms of their country homes into their urban dwellings.

If you’re looking for an attractive and durable way to shade your property, our roll up canvas awnings are an excellent option.

Canvas awnings are a great way to add shade to your home

Canvas awnings can be used for many different purposes, such as adding shade over a patio or deck, protecting windows from rain and debris, and adding privacy to your yard. Canvas awnings are used in many different places and they are also very durable which makes them perfect for areas that receive lots of wear and tear from the elements.

There are some things to consider when choosing canvas awning fabric

The answers to these questions will help determine which canvas awning fabric is right for you.

Canvas awning material/fabric

Canvas awning fabric is made from cotton, acrylic, polyester, or nylon. It’s durable and easy to clean. Canvas awnings are available in many different colours: white, tan/beige (called taupe or sand), black or navy blue. The colour of your canvas awning will depend on what colour theme you want in your home and what type of look you’re trying to achieve by adding an exterior shade like this one!

Canvas Awnings vs Roller Blinds

Roll up canvas awnings and roller blinds are both made from similar fabrics. Canvas is more durable than fabric, it will last longer and require less maintenance. It’s also heavier than fabric and therefore does not work well in colder climates.

If you live in an area where temperatures drop below freezing during the winter months, consider installing a roller blind instead of a canvas one. Roller blinds can be rolled down to protect windows from frost and snow while still letting light shine through your home’s interior walls.

Do canvas awnings protect from rain?

Canvas awnings are not waterproof, meaning that they do not provide complete protection from the rain. However, they do provide some protection from raindrops and allow some air to pass through them.

Care instructions: How to clean canvas awnings

To clean canvas awnings, we recommend using a non-abrasive cloth and warm water. Do not use bleach or detergents as they can break down the fibres in your canvas awning. Here are some guidelines for other instances:

How to clean mould off canvas awnings

If you have mould on the canvas, we recommend using our Mould Off Spray to remove it. This is an easy way to clean mould off your canvas awning without having to scrub too hard.

However, if you do need to use an abrasive cleaner or pressure washer then please be careful with these cleaning tools as this will decrease their lifespan and cause premature wear on it in other areas like stitching etc.

How to remove paint from canvas awning

If your canvas awning has paint on it, don’t panic! Getting the paint off your canvas awning is not too difficult.

First, you’ll want to wash the area with warm water and soap. Then, use a soft brush (like an old toothbrush) to scrub the area until all the paint has come off. If there are any stains left behind after washing, try using rubbing alcohol or vinegar to remove them.

If the stain is stubborn or if there are a lot of stains, you may need to hire someone else to do this for you.

How to repair a canvas awning at home

There are several steps you can take to repair your canvas awning. Look for any tears or holes in the canvas, if there are none, then you should be able to repair it yourself with some sewing tools and expertise. If there are holes or tears in the canvas, however, then it would be best to replace it completely instead of trying to mend it.

Remember that repairing a torn or damaged canvas awning at home can be tricky business if you don’t know what you’re doing—so make sure that if you decide on this route that someone who does know what they’re doing helps guide your hand through it!

The material used for canvas awnings lasts for many years

Canvas awnings are made from 100% cotton canvas. This is the most durable material you can use for your outdoor awning, as it will last for many years to come. However, there are other types of canvas that you might want to consider for your project:

As you can see, there are many things to consider when choosing canvas awning fabrics. But even if you don’t have the time or patience to do your research, there are plenty of experts out there ready and willing to do it for you! The bottom line is that if you need something that looks good and lasts long enough for generations of families to enjoy it then canvas awnings might just be a perfect choice.
