The summertime brings beach vacations and weekend cookouts, but it also brings the scorching summer sun. No matter the quality, repeated exposure to the sun will eventually do damage to your signs and awnings, fading them over time. To extend the life and the vibrancy of your signs and awnings, you can follow these helpful tips and tricks.

Keeping your awnings and signs clean is key to extending their life. For signs and aluminum awnings, that can be as simple as spraying off the dirt and debris with a water hose. For fabric awnings, you may have to do some scrubbing with dish soap and a soft brush to get the set-in dirt off.

When it comes to fabric awnings, selecting the right material is important. Fortunately, most awnings are now made with materials such as acrylic that last longer than the more traditional canvas. A waterproof coating for your awning can also help protect it from weather damage.

When it comes to your signs, keep your building’s exposure to the sun in mind when having it installed. If you can, have the sign placed in an area that gets less direct sunlight than the rest of the building.

Fortunately, at Carolina Awning & Tent Company, we use all the top quality materials to custom create our signs and awnings. Our attention to detail and commitment to quality products helps to ensure that you can get the most life out of your awnings and signs. So, come see us in Fayetteville, NC.
