When it comes to your Awnings, Awnmaster endeavour to provide you with professional service and product offerings, ensuring you are 100% happy with the end result and nothing less. It is for this reason we have identified 5 questions to ask your Awning Company before you buy!
- Where is the best suited place for the awning to start/end/cover?
Before deciding anything related to the physical qualities of your awning, along with the professional guidance of your Awning Company, first establish the best suited placement for your awning.
With that being said, it is important to have some idea of the desired location before approaching the company however, once a representative has been out to assess your property, they can then advise a suitable starting and ending point for the awning as well as what size area they are able to cover in order to best suit the environment at hand in an effective manner.
- What is the best product choice in this regard?
Once the size of the Awning required has been established, you will need to determine which product offering is best suited to your needs and requirements according to the company’s product and service offering.
Awning Companies will have varying options when it comes to product offerings. From Shadecloth to solid structures; Colourbond to Aluminium; deciding on which product is going to serve you in the best way is going to be based on the height and size of the Awning required as well as the area that the awning is going to be situated (geographical location also plays an important role in the decision of material utilised in the manufacturing of your awning.)
- How will the Awning be mounted?
Awnings can be mounted in a number of ways.
They can be mounted to the exterior wall, the roof above the gutter, or to the eave under the soffit.
It is imperative that this is established early on in discussions with your Awning Company as this will enable you to establish the height, as well as the pitch of the awning required.
- How long will the installation take?
Installation procedures will vary depending on the company you are utilising for your Awning installation.
Remember to discuss the duration of the installation with your Awning Company so that your needs and requirements are met in a time that is suitable and convenient to you.
- What does the warranty cover?
The most important aspect of finalising your Awning is the warranty.
Awnings, although strong and durable, can occasionally need repairing or maintenance due to geographical forces, wear and tear and so forth.
Different companies will supply customers with varying warranties for their Awnings. Be sure to establish whether your Awning and its parts are covered and whether the company itself provides a labour warranty of sorts to ensure you are covered appropriately in this regard.
