Awning Fabric Repairs: Resheeting & Replacing Awning Fabric

Figuring out how to repair awning fabric can be tricky if you’re inexperienced in the matter. Fortunately, there are professionals that excel at this particular skill set. The Awning Company is highly experienced at re-sheeting and general awning repairs. For awning repairs in Bolton, we are the best in the business. So, continue reading this insightful blog on how we re-sheet, why it’s done and how we can bring your GH awning back to life.

Why Should You Consider Replacing Awning Fabric?

A large part of the business we do at The Awning Company is re-sheeting and replacing awning fabric on race awnings and motorhome awnings for our clients. The large modular awnings that are used for motorsport and motorsport hospitality tents are the most common types of awnings that require re-sheeting. Some motorsport teams actually keep their awning structure for five, 10 and even more than 15 years, so eventually replacing awning fabric becomes a necessity. 

Fortunately, the framework on our awnings does stand the test of time and with spare parts always available, we’re on hand to help when needed. Even if a part isn’t in stock, we’re happy to manufacture it.

The sheeting on an older or used awning can become tired over many years and, although we fully support everyone with our parts and repairs service, they will eventually require replacing.

Other reasons for replacing awning fabric include:

  • New sponsor
  • Change of colour
  • New branding
  • Adding an extension (new sheets vs old sheets is not a good look)
  • Storm damage

We’re always happy to help re-sheet an awning for a client because we’re excellent at it! In terms of storm damage awning fabric repairs, we always react very quickly because we understand that motorsport teams need immediate replacements.

How Awning Fabric Repair Works

When a new sheet is not an option and you are in need of an immediate repair then contact us for advice. We can provide a temporary patch repair kit to get you through a few events until a more suitable time frame is available to return the sheet for a more professional repair or replacement.

Here’s how to repair awning fabric in the event of damage:

  • Identify the damage
  • Contact us for a pitch repair kit
  • Clean the area
  • Apply the patch to the damaged area

Identify the damage

Before you start your awning fabric repair, you need to identify the damage. Is it a tear, a hole, or a seam that has come apart? Knowing what you’re dealing with will help you determine the appropriate steps for repair.

Clean the area

Clean the area around the damage to remove any dirt or debris. This ensures that the repair material adheres properly to the fabric.

Patch the damaged area

For small tears or holes, you can use our fabric patch to cover the damaged area. Cut a suitable piece off the patch that is slightly larger than the damaged area and place it over the tear or hole. Our patches come with double sided storm proof tape that will secure the patch to the fabric.

For larger repairs please contact our team immediately and we will work with you to return and repair the sheet within your required timescale.
