When choosing between aluminum and fabric awnings, there are many variables a homeowner should weigh. However, one thing to keep in mind with aluminum is its durability, which means when you purchase a NuImage Aluminum Awning, it already has the building blocks to stand the test of time.
According to HomeAdvisor.com, "A metal awning is the toughest awning available. Aluminum awnings can hold many pounds of solid precipitation such as snow, hail, or sleet. … Once a metal awning is in place, it is virtually maintenance free. There are no problems with the material warping, bowing, or stretching.”
Furthermore, ImproveNet.com states that “aluminum awnings can withstand incredible winds at high speeds without damage, and they can also last for many years when carefully maintained and cared for. The lightweight nature of aluminum also makes the awnings easy to remove as needed, and installation is an easier job as well. Despite all of these major advantages, the cost of aluminum awnings is still very affordable, making them one of the most attractive options on the market for homeowners."
One final fact to consider when purchasing an awning is that aluminum does not rust.
