Awning Repair Costs

Awnings are secondary coverings attached to the exterior wall of a building in order to provide shade. They are typically installed over a window, door or patio. Awnings are usually made from lightweight metal or a heavy-duty, weather-resistant fabric and can be either stationary or retractable. Permanent awnings will cost you more than temporary awnings when you make your initial purchase, but in the long-run they can end up saving you both money and time because they require less maintenance than temporary awnings and don't need regular replacement. Fabric awnings require frequent maintenance and need replacement every few years.

Cleaning Your Awning

In order to maintain your awning properly and avoid unnecessary repairs, you must keep your awning clean. Most should be cleaned at least every year, and heavily used commercial awnings can need a deep cleaning as frequently as once per month. To ensure that your awning is cleaned properly, it is a good idea to hire a professional awning cleaner. A decent cleaning can cost you $50-$200 depending on the size and material of the awning.

Costs Associated with Repairing Your Awning

Awnings can be easily damaged, and the cost of repairs can add up quickly. Wind, snow, heavy rain and time can all wear on the material. When your awning needs repair, the size, material and location of the awning as well as the repairs needed will all factor in to the final cost. If you have a permanent awning made out from either heavy-duty fabric or metal, or if you own a retractable awning, the cost of repairs can be quite high. Replacing the fabric, fixing the mechanisms that power retractable awnings and fixing dented or corroded metal awnings can cost anywhere from $100 to in the thousands.

One of the most overlooked factors that will effect the final price of your awning repair is the mechanic you choose to fix it. Check with reputable contractors and handyman service providers to find an experienced technician to ensure that you don't get charged for unnecessary work. If you need to repair an awning, it is a good idea to get a number of different quotes from reputable contractors so that you can compare prices.
