Frequently Asked Questions About Front Door Awnings
Placement is key for getting the most use out of an awning. When looking to install an awning on your house, it’s important to consider your door size and how big of an area that you want to cover in order to properly size your awning.
Our sizing guide can be a great place to get started.
Performing proper maintenance and cleaning your awning is essential for preserving the longevity of any awning on the market.
It is important to clean your awning approximately once a month during the spring and summer. On houses in midwestern states like Michigan and Illinois, this is as simple as a quick hose down and brushing to remove any loose dirt or debris. Don’t forget to let the awning air dry before retracting it back into its aluminum cassette housing.
To improve the life of your retractable awning, it’s recommended to perform a deep clean every two years. In addition to hosing it down and brushing away the dirt, using a brush with soft bristles, gently scrub the top and underside of your awning with a mix of cold water and mild soap. Be sure the soap is fully rinsed from your awning and that it is completely dry before you put it away.
Many people don’t realize that the material of their awnings can be damaged from overexposure to the acid in vines, leaves, and shrubberies. Taller plants should not be kept near your retractable awning. If you’re unable to move your plants, trim them back so they don’t touch the rainproof fabric of the awning.
It’s important to note that when most people refer to “front door awnings” they are referring to two different products.
Product #1: a fixed, permanent awning made of fabric of metal that just covers the space above the doorway.
Product #2: a retractable or fixed awning that extends beyond the doorway to cover the space in front of and around the doorway.
At Marygrove we only offer product #2 in retractable form. Our awnings are designed to be enjoyed with a click of the button and provide much more shade than traditional options. For more information check out our retractable awning page.
