How long will my awnings last?

That question is like asking “How long will my new car last?” The answer to that is, “Don’t use it, leave it in the garage, and it can last a lifetime!” It depends on so many factors.

Keeping dirt off your awnings helps a lot since mildew forms on dirt. Today’s fabric fibers resist mildew but will last longer if kept free of mildew-enhancing substances.

When cleaning or removing debris from your awning, don’t use a sharp object that can create a hole in the awning. When rinsing or cleaning, use a soft brush; use only light pressure around the stitching area, since that is more subject to wear than the fabric.

Use a non-detergent cleaner. For more complete instructions on maintenance and cleaning, visit
