How old is an awning?


Do you plan to install an awning in your home and are you informing about the most important aspects of your new shadow system?

One of the issues most valued when buying an awning is the duration of the awning and, therefore, its quality.

Well, the length of each awning depends on many factors: the place where you want to install, the type of awning chosen, the weather conditions, the quality of the canvas and the structure, the care given ... etc.

The first thing that deteriorates of an awning is its canvas, since it is the one that is more exposed to the different inclemencies of the time. But, if you choose a quality awning, it should not last less than 5 years. In addition, depending on the type of canvas and the chosen material, can last up to 10 years.

There are factors, such as atmospheric conditions, that no one can control, but there are others like the cares that we are going to give it that are in our hand.

In Toldos Costa Blanca we are experts in the installation and manufacture of awnings throughout the province of Alicante, especially in areas of the Marina Alta such as: Altea, Denia, Javea, Benisa or Moraira.

Therefore, we want to give you a series of tips to take care of your awning and, thus, keep it as new for the longest time possible.

Care of an awning


Even if your awning doesn't have any visible stains, it's true that dust accumulates on both the canvas and the structure, and this, in the long run, could be detrimental to your protection system.

Deep cleaning

If, on the contrary, there is a stain, it is basic that we remove them as soon as possible so that they are removed.

It's very simple, you only have to use cold or warm water, soap (without detergent or bleach) and a soft brush.


Once you have cleaned your awning with water, let it dry in the open air before you roll it up, since the humidity is not good for it, because there might be mold on our tarp.

Don't force

If you find any impediment when picking it, do not force it or try to close it yourself. Contact a professional to do a review and do it.

At Toldos Costa Blanca we offer you a two year warranty, from the date of installation, covering any manufacturing defect.

We hope you get our advice! And if you need advice, do not hesitate to contact us!
