Commercial Awnings

Commercial & Storefront Awnings Victoria BC

Commercial Awnings provide a simple and inexpensive way to add signage to your business and create a custom look.

Commercial awnings provide functional benefits such as shading and protection from weather elements for customers and employees. They come in various materials, sizes, and colours to suit your business’ specific needs and preferences.

Commercial awnings for businesses serve two purposes:

  1. Adds signage to your business, creating a custom look for your entrance or windows
  2. Provides shelter for staff and customers coming in and out of your business

Stationary or Retractable Awnings

You can find the perfect fit for your commercial building or storefront and choose an awning that is either stationary or retractable. You’ll find that an awning will enhance the overall appearance of your business and make it more inviting to customers. You can also have your business name or logo printed on the awning to increase brand awareness and visibility.

Construction & Manufacture

Our commercial awnings are custom-made and feature durable welded aluminum frames with commercial grade, fire resistant awning material. If you choose a solid fabric colour, it allows for back-lighting. Awnings are a cost-effective way to upgrade the look of your building and require minimal maintenance. They also last many years, making them a sound marketing investment for your business.

Cleaning Your Awning

Awnings are pretty low-maintenance and just require a good cleaning every so often. Clean your commercial awning by following the steps below.

  1. Start by removing any loose dirt and debris from the awning using a broom or brush.
  2. Mix a solution of water and mild detergent in a bucket. Use a soft-bristled brush or a sponge to gently scrub the awning with the solution.
  3. Rinse the awning thoroughly with a hose or pressure washer. Be careful not to use too much pressure, which can damage the fabric.
  4. If there are any stubborn stains, use a specialized commercial awning cleaner or a mixture of water, vinegar, and baking soda. Apply the cleaner to the stain and let it sit for a few minutes, then scrub with a soft brush and rinse thoroughly.
  5.  Allow the awning to air dry completely before retracting or folding it back into place.

Commercial Awning Repairs and Re-covers

Commercial awning repairs and re-covers involve the restoration of damaged awnings to their original condition or the replacement of the fabric or panels that require it. We can re-cover your existing awnings with new fabric, new signage or a new logo. This is often the most cost–effective way to update the look of your storefront when the current awning is worn out, dated or needs updating to a new business name, logo or new choice of colours.

Typically, if your awning is damaged in a covered event such as a storm or fire, your business insurance may cover the cost of repairs or replacement. However, if the damage is due to wear and tear or lack of maintenance, it may not be covered. It’s important to review your insurance policy or talk to your insurance agent to understand what is covered and what is not covered.
