Excellent service from the start of the consultation process to the installation. I chose them upon recommendation from my very discerning building contractor who has electrically controlled Aquarius blinds and awnings installed in his own house. Well, I was certainly not disappointed! The Aquarius team are as friendly as they are professional, which made the whole process enjoyable, straightforward and very rewarding. The blinds all look superb and I can’t recommend Aquarius Blinds enough.

Fabric Replacement Awnings FAQ

How do I replace awning fabric?

Replacing the awning fabric involves a few steps. First, remove the old fabric from the awning frame, taking care to note how it was attached. Then, measure the length, width, and projection of the awning to ensure that the replacement fabric is the correct size. Next, attach the new fabric to the awning frame, following the manufacturer’s instructions and using any necessary hardware. Finally, test the awning to ensure that it operates smoothly and that the new fabric is securely attached.

It’s important to take your time and follow the instructions carefully to ensure that the replacement fabric is installed properly and functions as intended. To avoid potentially damaging your awning and the replacement fabric, it’s worth getting in touch with a member of our team for advice or to book an installation.
