We do not recommend taking down your awning unless there is a hurricane warning with the probability of winds over 75 miles per hour, in general.
Removing your awning should only be done if it is imminent that a storm is actually coming your way. Should that be the case, we recommend cutting all the ropes, which can be done above the grommets (brass eyelets). The rope will need to be replaced so do not be concerned about saving it. If your awning is attached to your home or building, after you cut the ropes, roll it up to the top of the frame, where it meets the wall. Tie it down around the ends and middle areas where you rolled it up and also tie it to the frame.
If you have a freestanding awning, cut the ropes (same as above), and roll the awning up, if possible, while it is on the frame or pull it to the ground and fold and roll it up. Store in garage.
If we do get a hurricane, failure to take these steps may result in damage to the awning frame and possible damage to your building.
Please do not remove your awning unless your area is under Hurricane Warning and it is imminent that a hurricane is headed your way! After a storm, re-installation of awnings and canopies will begin, starting with priority for our hotel and business customers, so they can re-open. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, or for further advice.
